How To Prevent Rat Problems

Wondering how to prevent rat problems? When you have rats, you want them gone as soon as possible. Delays in addressing any rodent problem will not make the problem go away, and can definitely make the problem worse. Rats left unattended can cause substantial damage to your home from chewing on the wood and drywall building materials of your home, internal wiring and even your food items. The longer a rat problem is ignored, the more damage they can cause.

At Priority Pest Services, we know how to prevent rat problems and how to get existing rats out of your home and repair the damage they left behind. Contact us at (757) 204-4523 to schedule a free home termite inspection!

Prevent Rat Problems To Protect Your Home & Family

Rats can carry germs and diseases that can be passed to humans. These pests are quite adaptable and, unfortunately, can procreate very quickly. Here in our local Hampton Roads area and adjacent areas of Coastal Virginia, conditions are ideal for the rat population to flourish.

When rats are in your home, they can create a health hazard for you, your family and your pets. Things like insulation soiled with rodent feces and urine should be removed from your home and replaced with new, as you don’t want the air that you breathe inside your home to be contaminated. Unsecured access points used by rats can be used by other rodents and pests to gain entry.
