Rat Control & Removal In Los Angeles
Also serving Orange county, San Fernando Valley, Riverside & San Bernardino Counties
Rat infestations are not only unsightly, but can also bring disease and parasites into your home or business. Rodents can spread diseases like Hantavirus, through their droppings and cause damage to your electronics and ventilation systems.
Norway rats are brownish grey in color and are identified by their large size and short tail. The average adult is about 16 inches long from nose to tail. It is more aggressive than its cousin, the black rat. These rats often enter structures through woodpiles, non-screened vents or doggie doors.
Black Rats or Roof Rats
The black rat, or roof rat, is similar to a Norway rat, but their tails are slightly longer and their bodies are slightly shorter. The average adult roof rat is about 15 inches long and has a sleek appearance. These rats prefer living in canopies or trees with dense climbing vines and can enter structures when trees touch roof tops. As a result, they are often found in attic spaces.
Rodent Waste Is Dangerous To Humans
- The presence of rodent in an attic means urine and feces, and even animal carcasses, that give off odors. You may be living with a nasty litter box right above your head.
- According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), humans can become infected with diseases from rodents after exposure to fresh urine, droppings, saliva, or nesting materials. Once droppings are moved around, spores can become airborne and can enter the human body through inhaling, or contact with eyes or skin.
- Animals and their residue attract insects, mold, bacteria, and other microorganisms, which feed and breed on organic wastes.
- According to the USDA, since free-roaming wildlife does not receive veterinary care, all species can carry diseases and parasites.
- The USDA cites fleas, ticks, lice, and mites as contributing to tuberculosis, histoplasmosis, and encephalitis. Children and pets are, particularly at risk.
- Disturbed or damaged insulation will costs you money in energy bills and invites moisture damage.
- Uneven insulation and leaky ductwork make your HVAC system work harder.
