When rats make their way into your Delaware Valley home, it can mean almost certain destruction or sicknesses for your house and family. With their large teeth and powerful jaws, they can chew through almost any material to get what they want. The best way to deal with an infestation is to catch it before it grows too large.

Dangers They Pose

If rats make their way into your home without you noticing, it can lead to severe structural damage in your home. When they forage your property for food, they track loads of infectious bacteria with them, spreading sicknesses. Typical damages they can cause include:

  • Using insulation as nesting material is typical of rats, which means they will gnaw through your walls and rip it out, possibly putting your home’s structure at risk.
  • To keep their teeth filed down, rats may chew on your stored belongings.
  • As rats leave their waste wherever they please, an excessive build-up could mean permanent staining on your ceiling and walls

DIY trapping is never a wise choice as placing the traps in effective areas is near impossible without the correct tools. Additionally, any rats you do catch will need to be properly removed by a professional.
