Rat Removal

No homeowner likes dealing with Rat Infestations in their home, especially ones as big and disease-ridden as rats. Rat GainesvilleIf rats can find their way into your attic or walls through holes in your roof, or by some other means, they can be difficult to remove and pose a huge threat to the health of your family. As soon as the first sign of rats appears in your home, call the experts at Critter Control® Gainesville to remove them.

Running the Risks

The risk rats pose to your home may be more than one would expect. Besides the expensive damages rats can do to your home like ripping out insulation, ruining walls, and chewing up stored belongings, they also pose a significant risk to the health of your family. Never attempt to remove them on your own, as receiving a rat bite isn’t the only way they can spread disease. Just touching a rat, or being exposed to its waste can transfer diseases like:

  • Hantavirus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Lass Fever
  • Rat-Bite Fever

If you attempt to trap a rat on your own, you will still need to hire a professional to remove the carcass, as touching a rat dead or alive can pass along any of these diseases.
