THE RISKS OF HAVING A RAT INFESTATION


Rats may be small, but they pose huge risks to humans, homes and businesses alike. Historically, rats have been associated with disease and death. After all, they were what brought the Black Plague to Europe in the Middle Ages. Despite the fact that modern medicine and technology have evolved greatly since then, rats pose similar risks to your health and property today.

Rats are secretive and small, able to gnaw and squeeze their way through openings in your home as small as a quarter. This opens up the potential for them to cause costly, difficult-to-detect damage to your furniture, your home’s infrastructure, and even electrical wiring! Rats gnaw constantly on materials like wood, plastic, or anything that looks remotely edible. To a homeowner or a business owner, that means that rats can get into practically any food container, bore holes in most any surface, and wreak havoc in small ways that can build up over time into significant, costly damage to your property over time.

The common rat can live up to three years, but up to 95 percent will die within a year. Rats are desperate to survive and will try to do so at any cost. Unfortunately, if they’ve made your home or business their home, that cost is likely going to be passed on to you in the form of damaged furniture, floorboards, walls, and hidden damage to your building’s infrastructure. Rats can also contaminate foods, surfaces and accessories. If you fear you may have a rat in your house, call the rat exterminators at World Class Wildlife Removal & Rodent Remediation right away. Our exterminators are experts in rat removal and will get your home or business cleared of rats and sanitized quickly and safely.

Even one rat is a sign of trouble. Rats are so secretive that if you see one, it means that there are dozens to hundreds more living within your home or business. Most rats can breed throughout the year, producing five litters a year, with a pregnancy period of just three weeks. That means that just two rats can grow a population of 15,000 in a year if conditions are right. And did we mention all the diseases rats can spread in your home?

DISEASES RATS CAN CARRY


  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome: A severe, occasionally fatal respiratory disease in humans that is caused by any contact with infected rats.
  • Leptospirosis: A bacterial disease that affects both humans and pets, spread by contact with rats or consumption of food or drink contaminated with rat urine. Can cause a range of symptoms, or no symptoms at all. If left untreated, Leptospirosis can cause kidney damage, meningitis, liver failure, respiratory issues, or death.
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis: An infectious virus that can affect humans or pets spread by skin contact with rats, rat bites or the breathing in of dust that has been contaminated with rat feces. Can cause a variety of brain-related problems.
  • Plague: An incredibly dangerous disease that can affect humans and pets and is spread by the handling of rats or other infected animals. Modern antibiotics can treat plague, but serious illness or death can result if plague is not treated promptly.
  • Rat Bite Fever: An infectious disease spread by the handling of rats or consumption of food or drink contaminated by rat feces. Causes fever, vomiting and muscle and joint pain.
  • Salmonella: While more commonly associated with the consumption of undercooked dough, salmonella can also be spread by eating or drinking food or water contaminated by rat feces. Salmonella causes diarrheal illness that can be severe.
  • Tularemia: Affects both humans and pets. Most commonly transmitted via skin contact with infected carcasses. Though symptoms vary based on how the bacteria enters the body, all forms are accompanied by fever as high as 104°F. Tularemia illnesses can range from mild to life-threatening.

How To Prevent Rat Infestations


No one wants to deal with rats in their home. Luckily, there are steps you can take to significantly lower the chances of rats being able to force their way into the walls of your home or business. Before you ever suspect rats may be living amongst you and you call World Class Wildlife Removal & Rat Remediation for rat removal help, there are two steps you can take to protect your home or business from the get-go.

First, seal all the potential entry points inside and immediately outside your building that rats could use to either gain access to the indoors or squeeze inside your walls for safety. Inspect your home or building vigilantly for holes in interior or exterior walls, floorboards, furniture, roofing, and anything else you think might be used as shelter by a rat. Remember, even the smallest hole could prove to be detrimental to the health and safety of your home or business — rats can fit through holes as small as a quarter in circumference, and if they can fit their head into an opening, they’ll surely be able to squeeze the rest of their body through it.

Next, eliminate all of the ways that rats could use to climb into your home or building from the outside. Rats are resourceful; they’re far more creative than you’d expect for such a small-headed creature. You’ll want to trim the branches of any trees on your property so that they’re at least a couple of inches away from your roof and any utility lines. If you have vines or ivy growing on the exterior of your home or business, you should remove it from the walls, since rats can easily climb them. If there are any tree trunks, pipes or gutters that rats could use to climb into your house, wrap them in metal or plastic sheeting, or tree guards as appropriate to seal those potential entry points.

Why Hire A Rat Exterminator?


With all of the consumer options for tackling rat removal, like rat traps, poison bait and repellent sprays, you may be asking yourself: is it really necessary to hire a rat removal company or exterminator?

As an experienced rat removal company, we may be a bit biased, but our answer to that is “Absolutely.” We get it: consumer solutions to rat removal may be cheaper and more convenient than hiring a full-blown rat removal service like us, but it’s also a far less precise and thorough way of tackling a problem that poses serious health risks to homeowners, liability issues for businesses, and gets restaurant owners’ operating licenses suspended on a not-too-uncommon basis. You might catch a rat or two with traps or other consumer solutions, but it’s unlikely that the rats you catch are the only ones in your building. Additionally, you won’t be getting information as to where the rats were holing up, what damage they might have caused, and what bacterial risks for disease they may have left behind. Rats may be small, but they’re a serious issue that deserve the attention of experienced exterminators like World Class Wildlife Removal & Rodent Remediation.

When you choose us for your rat removal needs, you’re getting a trusted, experienced exterminator service that operates in five counties across West Florida. Our customers in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Manatee, Sarasota and Pasco Counties choose us because they know we’re the absolute best at quickly assessing the scale of a rat infestation, safely and efficiently removing all the rats from your home or business using methods that are non-toxic to humans, and thoroughly sanitizing all affected and damaged areas so that you’re completely protected from any risks of disease that the rats may have left behind.

Signs You May Have Rats

Rats are secretive little creatures, preferring to live in dark and secluded spaces within your walls rather than out in the open. However, if they’re living amongst your home or business, they’ll still leave plenty of signs that they’re around.

If you suspect you have rats living in your home or business, the rat removal experts at World Class Wildlife Removal & Rat Remediation can help you out. Our experienced exterminators will quickly assess the scale of your infestation, promptly and safely remove the rats from your home, and sanitize the affected areas. Call today to get your home or business inspected promptly. We operate 24/7 in the case of emergencies.

  • Droppings: Rat droppings are the most surefire sign that rats are living amongst you, and an experienced exterminator will be able to tell the type of rat, size of the infestation and the locations of highest rat activity based on how much droppings can be found, and where they’re located.
  • Urine stench: Rat urine has a strong, musky scent that is more easily detected the larger your rat infestation is.
  • Gnawed holes: Gnawed rat holes are large with rough, shredded edges, and about the size of a quarter.
  • Rub and gnaw marks: Rats leave oily rub marks along the walls they travel across. If they smear, that’s an indicator that the marks are recent. Gnaw marks on wood and plastic surfaces around your home or business are another surefire sign of rats. Gnaw marks are typically about one-eighth of an inch long.
  • Rat runways: Rub marks or gnawed pathways are most common along interior walls, building foundations, ledges, pipes, electrical wiring and fencing. They are a surefire sign of rats.
  • Rat nest: Mice commonly nest indoors, but only some rats will nest indoors, using paper, string and other softer, easily manipulated material to build their nests. Rats that nest indoors tend to prefer attics.
  • Rat noises: Rats are nocturnal, meaning they sleep during the day and are active at night. They will often create scratching or skittering sounds during the night as they scamper along floors and inside your walls.
  • Pet behavior: Pets often have better senses of smell and hearing than their human companions. If your pet is acting unusually alert, barking for no apparent reason, or pawing at low-clearance spaces, like under your fridge or oven, it could be a sign of a rat infestation.
