More Than Traps - Why Everyone Needs a Rat Control Service

Rat extermination is more than traps. Most people think that rats live entirely inside the home and need to be eliminated by traps. But that's rarely the case. While anyone can pick up traps from the store in order to kill individual rodents, most of the time, it's not one rodent living on your property - it's many, many rodents that come in and out of your property for food, shelter, water, and more.

So in order to eliminate rats, you have to exterminate the ones on your property AND address all the entrances, openings, and weak spots that make it possible for rats to come on your property in the first place. And this is important, because rats:

  • Carry Disease - Rats carry as many as 15 diseases that can be spread to humans. They also carry bacteria on their skin that can lead to infections and illness if it is accidentally touched or spread to humans. There are even more diseases if the rat dies on your property.
  • Rats Steal Food - Rats most often invade in order to get access to human food and pet food. Because they carry disease, any food they have come into contact with needs to be thrown away.
  • Rats Are Noisy - Rats usually travel around through walls and make loud scratching noises. They are also night animals, which means that they may start their scratching noises right around the time you're going to sleep.
  • Rats Are Destructive - They chew at furniture, destroy walls, use books for their nests, and may even eat at electrical wires increasing the risk of a fire.

Rats are problematic - and potentially dangerous - pests. While there are many rat control companies in Jacksonville that can assist in rodent removal, the success of your treatment requires a team that takes its time on your property, has a variety of tools available, and can spot even the smallest possible entrance. That's what you get with Bug-Man Pest Service

  • Sealing off all possible entrance points.
