WHY DO YOU NEED RAT CONTROL IN TAMPA?

There are multiple species of rats, however, the roof rat is one of the most common to the Tampa Bay area. While rats pose no direct physical threat to humans, they can pose a tremendous threat to a property because of their tendency to chew through building material and wiring. They pose a sanitary risk to humans as well. Rats send out scouts to look for new food sources. When they find a food source, the colony of rats is drawn to the smell of the feces, urine, and pheromones of the scout. Rats are also capable of producing up to 40 offspring per year. So unless you seek a rat exterminator in Tampa quickly, the issue will multiply.

WHAT MAKES A-TEAM TRAPPERS DIFFERENT?

Our experts understand that it’s not enough to simply remove the rat, you must remove the “scent path” that his feces, urine, and pheromones create. To do this, we have a three-step process, which starts with fogging the entire attic with an antimicrobial scrub to eliminate the risk of toxic airborne pathogens. Second, we clear away the feces by vacuuming the high volume areas and soiled parts of the insulation. The final step is to remove any residual pheromones so that other rats will not be drawn to the area.
