Roof rats, sometimes called citrus or black rats, can be a major nuisance to Florida homeowners! This can sometimes require rat removal in Orlando and the surrounding Central Florida areas. These excellent climbers are able to crawl all the way up to attics and find entryways into the home.
They are naturally drawn to attics, garages, and storage units because they seek a warmer environment. Rats also have a tremendous sense of smell, so if another rat has ever made a home in your space, a new one can easily sniff the scent out and seek out a potential mate. Attics and warm spaces in the home also provide an area free of the dangers presented by predators because there are none to worry about.
Signs of a rat in your attic or home include:
- Shredded insulation
- Fecal droppings
- Chewed electrical wires
- Rat tracks
Rat Infestation Dangers
Rats carry a number of diseases that can be harmful to family members and household pets. These include Hantavirus Pulonary Syndrome, rat-bit fever and leptospirosis, all threatening to human or pet health when one is exposed to fecal matter contamination. In addition to the health hazards, rats can destroy structures, insulation, and electrical wires, air ducts and plumbing.
