Are rats causing a huge mess for you in Bartlett TN? We see all kinds of rat problems every day for homeowners. Since 2005, we have been working with clients who have experienced ruined insulation, chewed wiring, dead rats in their walls, and even rats chewing vehicle wires! You name it, we’ve seen it. We have the experience to help your solve your rat problems once and for all.
When it comes to getting rid of a rat infestation, there are several factors to consider. The size of the rat infestation, how long it will take to trap the rats, and how many entry points need to be sealed to keep more rats from coming in. Once a rat has left its scent in your attic, more animals will try to come into your home as well. Wild animals can also detect rotted wood on your home, and will choose these vulnerable areas to try to tear into.
Now some pest control operators will tell you that poison will kill your rats. And they’re right. The rats will slowly die from the poison. The problem lies in WHERE the rats die. If a rat dies in your walls or another inaccessible space in your home, you will end up with the most incredibly horrible smell you can imagine in your home! And the cost of cutting through your walls to remove a dead rat can be pricey.
One of the leading causes of house fires in the United States has been found to be electrical wiring chewed by animals in your home. Rats, mice and squirrels must chew constantly to keep their teeth filed down, or their teeth would grow so long that they would be unable to eat. Did you know that without constant chewing, a rat’s teeth can grow up to SIX INCHES long in just a year? Imagine a rat with walrus teeth!
When our technicians perform inspections, one of the first things they look for is chewed wiring. We take this situation very seriously as the dry materials from rat nests can create an instant fuel for sparks to land on. If you think you may have rats, mice or squirrels, please contact an electrician immediately. And then call Apex Wildlife Control. Let us trap those rats and help you reclaim your home!
Did you know that just one successful breeding pair of rats can give birth to over 1500 rats in just a year? And that’s not counting the thousands that their offspring can produce. How can they procreate so quickly?
Rats have very short gestation periods of approximately three weeks. A female rat can become pregnant again within a few days of giving birth. Rats also typically have large litters of anywhere from 6 to 12 young, and sometimes even more. Weirdly enough, rats are excellent mothers.
