If I See One Rat In My Home Does That Mean There Are More?
Rats are rarely loners. These pests live in groups. A group of rats is generally small - about 5 to 10 rats, but several groups can work together to make a much larger group. If you see one rat, it is likely that there are more. There may even be a lot more. A group of rats can move about without being detected. It is a good idea to learn how to detect signs of rats on your property because you might not even see one rat. One way our pest management professionals help residents in Sumter County is by performing inspections. These inspections help to detect signs of rats and conducive conditions that support rat activity.
Can Rats In Sumter County Make You Sick Without Touching Them?
One of the most important reasons to invest in professional rat control is that rats in Sumter County can make you sick - and they don't need to touch you to do it. Not only do rats pick up bacteria, parasitic worms, and other microorganisms that impact human health, they also pick up ticks and fleas, which are associated with a long list of other diseases.
Rats spread diseases, ticks, and fleas as they move about your home. It is a good idea to get rid of rats as quickly as possible, and the best way to get rid of rats fast is to have the service team here at Sumter Pest Management handle this difficult job.
Why Aren't Traps Enough For Rat Control In Homes?
We pointed out above that rats are relentless; and, the most important thing you should know is the relentless rats keep coming and coming. This is because they're equipped with strong teeth that can gnaw through tough building materials like concrete. Once inside, they reproduce quickly. In many cases, easily growing their populations faster than homeowners can remove them by trapping.
Another challenge residents face is the fact that rats are smart animals with behavior patterns that help them avoid traps and dangerous foods, like rat bait. Trained pest management professionals use methods that outsmart rats, and they perform evaluations to make sure the rodent control treatments they provide are workings. One of the worst consequences of DIY rodent control is that rats continue to secretly move about structures and present a threat to health and property when control methods seem to be working but actually aren't.
