Dallas, Texas residents who have been dealing with a rat infestation problem may be happy to hear about Rapid Rodent Removal’s (RRR) services. The company has both the expertise and tools required to clear a space completely of rats, and they encourage residents to get in touch today to start creating an action plan.
In order to deal with rats more effectively, Rapid Rodent Removal believes it is important to understand the creatures. Rats are small mammals that belong to the rodent family, and the two most commonly known types of rats are the Norway rat and the roof rat. Norway rats tend to be larger and more aggressive while roof rats are smaller and more agile. Rats generally live for about one or two years in the wild and up to four years in captivity, and they breed very quickly — Norway rats may have up to 14 pups per litter, 7 times a year. Rats are nocturnal as well, meaning they are most active at night.
There are a number of reasons why rats are considered dangerous. Rats are known to carry a variety of diseases, including the bubonic plague. They have been known to cause damage to homes and buildings by gnawing on items, including electrical wires, which can pose a fire hazard. Rats can contaminate food, damage gardens, chew through walls and insulation, and generally cause great harm to the space they inhabit. This is why it is important to deal with rat infestations quickly.
Rapid Rodent Removal recently published a blog post on the subject. The article says, “It doesn’t matter if you saw a live or dead rat in your kitchen, found rat poop in your pantry or mouse poop in your garage that doesn’t belong there. The unfortunate part is rats or mice don’t appear by magic, in a cloud of smoke. Rats either find a hole or make a hole, then they make a home (rat nest). Everyone knows rats produce fast, it’s not uncommon knowledge.”
The first step is to seal any holes, be they large or small. Holes are either made by rats or allow rats to get in. Next, it is advised to keep firewood and debris far from the house and trim any trees that may be nearby. Homeowners are also advised to remove any object that may allow a rat to climb into their home. Feeding pets outside is not recommended, and homeowners are also encouraged to protect their garbage from rats. Traps and bait are the best way to catch any rodents that manage to get in. Lastly, the article recommends cleaning up after rodents.
Often, it is best to call an exterminator to deal with a rat problem. RRR, for instance, always knows what (and what not) to do when dealing with rats, having addressed countless infestations in the past. Rapid Rodent Removal has proudly served the Dallas community for years, getting rid of rats and a variety of other pests. They also have the ability to identify infestations easily, being able to tell if a house has rats or not just by looking at rat poop and other signs.
“I cannot recommend Brian and his company enough,” says a review of Rapid Rodent Removal from Brendan F. “I had an emergency rat issue that needed immediate attention. He was completely booked, but answered my call anyway. He then went out of his normal day to squeeze me into his already scheduled appointments. He takes care of all my issues, then goes on to leave me with a few items to help me be proactive on my own in the future. Fast, efficient, friendly and very extremely fair pricing. Just great, great service. Meanwhile, I could not even get a call back from other major chains. I hope I don’t have future rodent problems, but I'll 100% be using Brian and his company if I do. A++”
