Plantation Rats, Raccoons, Noises in the Attic

Pests come in all sizes. But when it comes to home invasions in Plantation, FL, rats and raccoons are small animals that can do big damage. It's not just the mess they make in attics, basements, and other hidden corners; these wild animals will eat through wires, plastic pipes, insulation, and other materials in search of food or shelter, creating fire or water damage hazards. In addition, they are carriers of viruses and bacteria that can have serious health implications for humans.

Rats

Larger than mice, rats have been terrorizing human populations for centuries, largely because they can be carriers of serious disease (it was the Plague in medieval times). Generally, rats avoid human contact, but there are usually telltale sounds and bad smells that indicate rats are sharing your home.

Raccoons

Raccoons are increasingly a problem in urban and suburban areas, like here in Plantation, as wildlife habitats become scarcer. Their feces can contain viruses such as rabies and leptospirosis that can be deadly to humans. Even if contained to the exterior of your home, raccoons are notorious for rooting through garbage, compost, gardens, and outbuildings for food. They also pose a threat to family pets as they can be vicious if they are ill or feel threatened.

Noises in the Attic

The primary objectives of any animal that invades your home is to find a safe source of shelter, warmth, and food. Your attic provides all three, and it is a common area for animals like raccoons and rats to nest in. They like to destroy attic insulation, chew up wiring, and leave droppings everywhere, so if you’re hearing the pitter-patter of footsteps above your head at night, it’s time to call Critter Control®.

Keeping Homes Pest-Free

Homeowners dealing with a pest problem often try DIY solutions such as traps, poisons and other measures. These are rarely as effective as getting a professional involved, and some methods can actually be just as hazardous to your family's well-being as the pest. The experts at Critter Control® Fort Lauderdale have the resources and specialized knowledge necessary to deal with rats, raccoons, and other vermin humanely and efficiently. They can also advise on preventative strategies for ensuring your Plantation home stays pest-free. Call us today at 954-467-6067 to learn more.

The Critter Control team went above and beyond to make sure that NO CRITTERS could get into my home. We thought we had conquered the problem, but we still heard squirrels getting in, so they returned to reassess and finish the job. They actually pulled up our deck boards and found that the critters were getting in because of a rotted board underneat the cantilever. They replaced the insulation, rotted boards, and put a metal sheeting over everything so NO squirrels or critters could chew their way in! If you need critter control - you need to contact them. They stand behind their work 100%.... Thank you Rodney & Team!! Great Job. Ellen R. Haslett, MI

We had a great experience working with the crew from Critter Control San Jose. They patiently listened to our observations, we came up with strategies and ended up fixing suspect areas, trapping a couple of rats. Problem seems to have been solved and hope we don't need to call them again
