Rats: Power in Numbers
How do rats defeat Little Elm, TX homeowners? Surely not by size, as most rats measure shorter than the length of an adult index finger. Rats gain power through sheer numbers. Female rats can produce up to seven litters per year, with each litter capable of adding 14 babies to the rat population. Do the math: 14 times seven means one female rat can boost the rat population in your home by 98 babies over the course of a year.
Nearly 100 new rats in your home exponentially increases the damage the rodents can cause in your Little Elm, Texas home. Rats must constantly chew and gnaw to prevent ever growing teeth from turning into health hazards. Rats first chew on soft materials to build nests. When newspapers, magazines, and clothing run out in the attic, rats turn to wooden support beams and the insulation covering electrical wires to finish home building jobs. Imagine the carnage caused by more than 50 rats going to town on the materials in the attic or basement.
How to Prevent a Rat Invasion in Little Elm, Texas
The key to winning the rat battle starts along the roof and around the foundation of your Little Elm, TX home. Like most rodents, rats are limber pests that can squeeze through holes and cracks much smaller than their body shapes and sizes. Our team of dedicated critter control experts fills every hole and crack we detect to prevent rats from gaining access to the attic or basement. Another rat prevention strategy involves eliminating every source of food and water rats need for nourishment. We explain how to store dry food in cabinets and the food you pour into the family pet’s bowl. During our free home inspection, we note every source of water, from water dripping from leaky pipes to clogged drains that form pools of water for rats to drink.
Humane Rat Trapping is the Solution
Brinker Animal Removal believes in humane animal trapping methods. Our goal is to catch rats and then find homes for the small rodents. The first step is to lure rats into spacious cages. Instead of using poisoned baits, our team of rodent removals specialists places food baits near the entrance of cages. After a rat snags a food bait, the cage door lowers to lock the small rodents in for the trip to an animal shelter or for transport back to natural habitats. You should never use poisoned baits because of the physical harm it can cause pets and children. Moreover, rats that eat poisoned baits and then elude capture can harm other wildlife.
