Now that colder temperatures are almost upon us, there’s nothing more comforting than being at home and basking in the warmth. Do you know who loves to be inside your home as well? Rats.
Though rat infestations happen year round, this problem often gets worse during the fall season. With the weather getting cooler every day, rodents will be looking for a warm place to stay. One of these days, these pesky little animals might find their way into your home, causing problems and mayhem.
Rat Busters realizes that the presence of nuisance wildlife in homes and attics is not only an inconvenience but also a risk to human health and safety as well. Aside from the property damage these animals can cause, there is also the matter of contamination from feces and urine. It is for this reason that we now provide services to clean and disinfect attics and insulation throughout South Florida and the Boca Raton area after an animal control situation has been contained.
Of course, one of our main goals as a wildlife removal, prevention and trapping service is to minimize damage first. Once the species causing problems has been identified, our technicians will employ practical, humane and environmentally acceptable solutions for removal and prevention of re-infestation, if necessary.
