Rat Removal & Control in Ft. Lauderdale, FL

It all happens so subtly. You hear a light tapping while laying in bed at night. Or random scratching inside a wall. Perhaps your dog is barking furiously for no reason. You want to believe that the noises you hear are nothing to be concerned about, but please err on the side of caution. Rats can reproduce up to 40 offspring a year, so the sounds you are hearing could be the indicator of a significant problem. If that’s the case, contact A-Team Trappers for rat removal in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

The Facts About Rats

Rats may scare most people, but they do not pose a direct threat to humans. They are likely more afraid of you than you are of them. However, they pose large indirect threats due to their propensity for gnawing wood and their unsanitary nature. Rats can do tremendous damage while entering your home and can even cause electrical fires by chewing on wires. Rats also carry several diseases, including leptospirosis and murine typhus.

Rat Control in Ft. Lauderdale, FL With A-Team Trappers

A common misconception about rats is that when finding one, that it’s the only one around. Rats send out a scout to look for food sources. Once a rat chews his way into your home and discovers food, he sends a scent trail, which includes pheromones, to attract other rats. If one rat is in your home, there are probably multiple rats.

A-Team Trappers takes a complete approach to solving your rat problem. We discover the entry points and seal them off so additional rats won’t make their way into your home. We then trap and remove the rats. This can take from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, depending on the extent of the issue. We are on call, 24 hours a day, to re-apply bait. Once completed, we conduct a three-step technique that eliminates the feces, airborne pathogens, and pheromones from the infected area.

At A-Team Trappers, we can meet almost any budget and we are committed to returning your home to a pest-free haven.
