Rat Extermination in your home or commercial building may be a challenge to some companies, but not for us. Rats are the one home invader that makes homeowners cringe and their neck hair stand up. We will provide a complete inspection to locate all the entry points, sealing your home or building and removing the rodents, is our normal method for successful results. After sealing up all the openings in your home, we will remove the resident rodents from the structure. We can also offer an attic cleanup service and replacement of soiled insulation. This will reduce the exposure to feces and increase the “R” value of the insulation, thereby saving you electricity to heat and cool your home. The rats in our Tampa Bay area all fit into the same pest group, whether they are the Common, Roof, Citrus, Fruit, Grove, Black, Tree, or just “You Dirty Rat”. Biologists call them “Rattus rattus”, we call them fun. They cause a huge loss of food worldwide. Besides eating our food they spoil it by contamination with their feces, urine, fleas, or fur. Remember the “Plague” that you studied about when you were in school? This was attributed to the fleas on the rodents. They can be found not only in our homes, but supermarkets, restaurants, warehouses, food processing facilities, livestock facilities, and farm fields. They reproduce rapidly with major activity at night. They also cause damage to our buildings by their burrowing and gnawing activity. Rodents will gnaw through many types of materials in order to reach a location including lead sheathing, cinder block, aluminum siding and some concrete. They are also able to squeeze through very small openings: 1/4 inch for mice and 1/2 inch for rats.
