When it comes to rats infesting your home, early detection is essential to keep your home, business, and its occupants safe. Rats often sneak onto your property undetected through small holes that they widen with their large teeth. If left alone to grow, your infestation will be out of hand in no time. At the very first sign of rat activity in your home, call on the experts at Critter Control® Jacksonville to keep your family, employees, and property safe.
With some of the proven methods we use here at Critter Control®, you can avoid the spread of diseases and expensive damages to your property. By being proactive with rat control, you can prevent infestations altogether. Our proven tactics include:
- Trapping– For a rat trap to work, it needs to be set in the proper location. Whatever kind of trap you buy will need to be placed in a high traffic area like your attic or your walls. Since some places rats frequent are not readily available, you may need to hire a professional to help place traps.
- Sealing cracks– Check the perimeter of your home for any size of hole. Although they are large, rats are known for chewing through small holes to access warm and dry shelters with plenty of food.
- Poison– As the most extreme version of rat control offered, we do not suggest using this method unless you are a trained professional. With small children or pets around, this method could prove fatal if misused. If the previous methods don’t help control the rats around your home or business, you will need to contact the experts.
