All Oklahoma City residents know rats aren’t strangers to our homes and businesses. If you have weak spots on your roof or any small holes leading into your home or business, rats can easily infest your property. An unnoticed infestation can double in size in no time and cause costly damages and the spread of diseases.
Dangers Rats Bring
Rats bring with them disease and destruction that will put your family and home at risk. These critters will leave waste all over your home and track it around, exposing all of your home’s occupants to diseases like Hantavirus and Leptospirosis. Other damages rats can inflict on your home include:
- Gnawing through wires and pipes, leading to floods or fire hazards
- Damaging your ceiling, walls, and isolation as their feces and urine soak in
- Using attic and wall insulation as nesting material, driving your heating and cooling costs up
- Destroying precious stored belongings with their large teeth
DIY trapping is never encouraged by professionals like the ones at Critter Control® OKC. Not only do most traps prove fruitless, but they can also be dangerous to leave around if you have pets or small children. If you still decide to use a rat trap of some kind, you will still need to hire a trained professional to dispose of the rat bodies properly.
