Rats are a relatively intelligent rodent. They use this intellect to sneak around your home, steal food, create nests in attic insulation, and avoid DIY traps. Do-it-yourself traps for rats do exist, but rats’ natural fear of new objects can make them averse to taking a chance on your bait. Hiring a rat exterminator is the safest option for you to ensure the best removal with the fewest risks.
What are the Risks?
Though it is possible to trap rats yourself using over the counter methods, it is ill-advised given their cunning nature. Allowing your rat problem to fester and grow may result in:
- Damage to your wood beams and wiring
- Contaminated attic insulation
- Spread of germs through mites or rat feces
When ridding your home of rats, the main goal is to remove the rodents as quickly as possible with minimal damage to yourself or your home. Enlisting the help of a professional rat exterminator not only helps you get rid of the unwanted pests safely and efficiently, but it ensures your home is sealed from future entry.
