Are Rats Dangerous?
Many homeowners aren’t aware of the harmful effects that rats can have on a home. Because rats can create several serious problems, infestations should be addressed immediately.
Rats are harmful because:
- They carry and transmit diseases by leaving their droppings and urine throughout a home
- Droppings and urine can trigger allergies
- They cause structural damage to a home by gnawing on wood and leaving holes in floorboards and walls
- They chew on exposed wires, which can start a house fire
To prevent serious damage to your property and health, contact in the rat control experts from Greenix Pest Control.
How Do Rats Get into a Home?
When a rat is looking for a place to nest, its main requirements are food, shelter, and water. Once they find the perfect home, getting inside is easy. Any hole as small as ½” is big enough for a rat to squeeze through. Rats typically enter a home through openings into crawlspaces, gaps in doorways, unscreened windows, unsealed attics, cluttered lawns, trees or bushes that make contact with the home, and holes in siding. Rats are skilled climbers, contortionists, and acrobats, which makes entering a home a simple obstacle for them.
Signs of Rats in Your Home
Because rats are nocturnal, it is rare to come across one. Unless you come across a living or dead rat, you usually have to rely on identifying the signs of an infestation.
These signs include, but are not limited to:
- Rat droppings
- Urine odor
- Smudged surfaces
- Scratching or scampering sounds
- Holes or nests
- Tampered food packaging
- Gnaw marks on wires, cardboard boxes, and wooden items
To know for sure if you have a rat problem, reach out to our rat control team. Our highly trained rodent professionals know exactly how to identify rats and determine the extent, cause, and best possible solution to your problem.
The Greenix Approach to Rat Control
Using a specialized rodent treatment process, our rat control team effectively flushes rats from your home. We distribute heavy, cement-based bait boxes containing Selontra® rodent bait to quickly control your infestation. Selontra® rodent bait attracts rats and acts as a blood thinner, which causes the rodents to search for water sources away from your home. These bait boxes require a key that only our professional technicians have access to, so you don’t have to worry about children or pets getting into them. Every 60 days, we restock bait boxes to ensure lasting protection from rats.
