Rats chewing on air conditioning wires can be extremely dangerous for homeowners. These aggravating pests find refuge in the warm and dark spaces near AC units, drawn to the wire’s insulation for gnawing satisfaction. This gnawing habit, driven by their need to control teeth growth, damages electrical connections, leading to system malfunctions or complete breakdowns. Costly repairs and discomfort during scorching Germantown summers is the last thing a homeowner wants!
Keeping rats away from your air conditioning wires requires a proactive approach. Start by sealing all potential entry points, such as cracks and gaps. Keep your surroundings clean and tidy, removing potential food sources like open garbage cans and pet food. Trim vegetation and trees away from the house to eliminate hiding spots. Implement rodent deterrents like peppermint oil or ultrasonic devices.
Regularly inspect the area, repairing any damage promptly. Look for signs of rat activity, such as droppings or chew marks. If you find signs of rats, call Apex Wildlife Control. Our technicians will perform a full interior and exterior inspection on your home, provide photos of any damages, and an estimate for removing these dangerous pests from your home.
Rat infestations begin with a single curious rat seeking food and shelter. Drawn by easily accessible resources, such as food scraps or unsealed garbage, this adventurous rodent will venture into a property through small gaps or openings. Once inside, it leaves scent markings, quickly attracting other rats.
A female rat can give birth to over 1,500 rats in just one year. Female rats are sexually mature within two months and can become pregnant within hours of giving birth. Rapid reproduction quickly establishes a growing colony, exploring every nook and cranny for sustenance. Rats are nocturnal, coming out at night to establish nests and pathways throughout your home. Ignoring early signs may lead to an overwhelming rat infestation, requiring swift action to reclaim your home from these stealthy intruders.
