You Can Bid Goodbye to Rats in Puyallup

Pest Control

No one wants a house full of rats, but that could happen if a male and female rat move in. Then, more of their relatives will move in with them. Rats can multiply every several weeks, so in no time at all, you will have a house full. Rats are the filthiest of creatures, and they carry all kind of diseases that make people sick and even kill people. Little children are even more vulnerable. The droppings of rats leave diseases and their tracks contain bacteria and viruses. They hide in places where the homeowner would never find them.

A world recognized expert on rats, David Mouzon, says a female rat can mate as many as 500 times with various males during a six-hour period of receptivity, which is a state she experiences about 15 times per year. Thus, a pair of brown rats can produce as many as 2,000 descendants in a year. A rat matures at age three to four months, and an average rat’s life span is two to three years.

If you have ever seen a child who has been attacked by a rat in their crib, then you will spare nothing to get them out of your house. Rats seem to instinctively know that there are places in a home where they can hide and not be found.

While this may be a challenge for some people, it is not a challenge for a good pest control company that knows more about rats than rats know about themselves. This is important because getting rid of rats depends on finding their nests, and then using the most effective poison and other methodologies to get rid of them. Not to mention the feat of sealing off their hiding places and entry ways so they cannot return. Rats in Puyallup can be exterminated permanently if you hire the company with the skills and expertise to accomplish this.

There can be no doubt that a pest control company can remove the rats in Puyallup. Equally as important are the carpenters on its staff who will repair the damage and seal off the areas that rats like to live in. The crawl space under the house is an area that the exterminators and the carpenters need to work on to keep the rats away. It is absolutely possible to rid your home of rats permanently.
