Rats gain access to your home through small cracks and holes. They have the ability to squeeze their bodies into spaces the size of a quarter. Once they gain access into your home or business they will begin to nest and breed inside your walls,attic, and floors. They damage property, and put your health at risk. Hiring a Houston Rat Exterminator can help you with permanent rat removal.
If rats get into your home, garage, or in your yard, they have the potential to cause a serious health risk to you and your family. They carry diseases like hantavirus, a highly dangerous viral infection that has no cure. They carry rat-bite fever, which also has no cure and can potentially be very deadly. As if these aren’t bad enough, even the places where they walk, leave saliva, urinate, or defecate are loaded with tons of harmful bacteria and viruses.

Rats are probably some of the easiest pests to find in your home. They aren’t so easy to get rid of. Hiring a Houston rat exterminator can protect your home and family from these pests. They have a tendency to leave noticeable damage. They can damage floors, walls, and wood that supports areas of your home. They even damage insulation and cables. Rats are always in search of food. They will cause damage to anything that may be considered food. They will chew through plumbing lines, insulation between your attic and the rest of your home, and the insulation that surrounds electrical wires.
Rats and mice look for any food sources that they can find. If your yard has fruit trees and other edible plants, these provide excellent food sources for rodents. Easy access to any pet food and trash is also a big reason they come onto your property. Having a messy yard with plenty of brush and ground cover makes a yard much more attractive to rodents, as they have more places to create shelter and be safe from raptors and other predators. There are many reasons rodents come into yards, but those are the largest contributors by far.
