Waterbury Rat Removal – Manatee County, FL Rodent Pros
Voted Best Rat Removal Companies in Waterbury
Rats can cause significant damage to structures inside your Waterbury home. Rats’ teeth grow constantly, so they need to gnaw on things to wear down their teeth. Unfortunately for you, that means they can – and will – chew through anything to get where they want to go, including drywall, wood and wall studs, plumbing pipes, and electrical wires. They will also help themselves to the food in your pantry, leaving behind unsanitary droppings and contaminated food. For help call the Manatee County, FL Rodent Pros today!
Rats can also carry a number of disease-causing germs that are harmful to adults, children, and pets, such as Salmonella and E. coli, which can cause food poisoning or other infections. Rats can also transmit rabies, bubonic plague and Weil’s disease (leptospirosis).
