Rodent Removal & Control in Ft. Lauderdale, FL

When people think of rodents, they often think of rats and mice. However, the term “rodent” can refer to a variety of nuisance animals, including moles, squirrels, chipmunks, and gophers. They are all characterized by their voracious appetites. Those appetites are at the heart of what makes them an issue for homeowners. Rats can enter homes by gnawing their way through soffits and into walls and attics. When they are there, they can chew wires, leading to electrical fires and extensive damage. They also give birth to up to 40 offspring a year, so when you are dealing with one rat, you are likely dealing with many. If you notice signs of rats in your home, the best thing you can do is contact A-Team Trappers for rodent control in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

How to Prevent Rodents From Entering Your Home

Oftentimes the best way to deal with rodents is to put measures in place to prevent them from entering your home in the first place. There are a number of actions you can take early on in homeownership, including:

  • Keeping your home clean, especially the kitchen and pantry
  • Keeping food items, both human and pet foods, in a safe place
  • Sealing roofs and windows
  • Using deterrent items, such as door sweeps and screens

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

If these actions do not work and you already have rodents in your home, contact our technicians immediately. Rodents often leave a scent trail (a mix of pheromones and feces) to help other rodents find them. This not only means that there may be multiple rodents in your home, it’s means the area is hazardous to your family’s health. The experts at A-Team Trappers want to restore your home back to a clean, rodent-free haven. We do this by offering a free inspection to determine the type of rodent and how it entered your home. We will then set traps to capture rodents and seal all entry points. Once the rodent is trapped and taken out of the home, the infected area will be treated to remove feces, bacteria, and pheromones. This treatment is needed to prevent rodents from entering your home in the future.
