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.
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 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.

Tom Hanson is awesome! We're renovating and the roof is opened up, so here come the rats. So gross. I contacted Critter Control via their website, got a call back within the hour, and Tom was on property the next morning. He studied our situation and gave thorough, thoughtful advice—which did not include using their services! Instead, he taught us how to manage the situation until we can deploy a more permanent solution. When the house is sealed up again, Tom and Critter Control will return to ensure the complete removal of all unwanted creatures. Thank you, Tom and Critter Control. We appreciate your great service!
Cooper was punctual, knowledgeable, and reassuring. His trained eye noticed things we would not have seen. His investigation was thorough and answered all of questions. Highly recommend.
Terrific. Kind, quick, reliable, reasonable. Knowledgeable and professional staff. Highly recommend. Thank you for your work on our properties. S

I am so glad I had Critter Control come and inspect my house! The problem was located and fixed immediately and since then I have not had any more problems with bats. Money well spent!!!
I connected Critter Control Orlando and was surprised, though elated that an actual person quickly answered. She was pleasant and efficiently scheduled a visit to my house to solve my varmit problem. The appointment was the next day. As arranged, I got a call from Ryan the next morning to tell me his eta. He arrived right on time and after explaining the procedure, got right to work. After a survey of our attic, he told us the problem and gave us a price to fix it. He explained exactly what would be done and an approximate number of visits it would take. I found Ryan to be easy to communicate with and an excellent customer relations person. I will be recommending Critter Control to my friends and neighbors.
We had a raccoon in the attic and this team of professional workers caught him after days of detective work. It was a pleasure working with them and having them at my house. I especially want to thank John and Kenzie!
After months of fighting moles in our yard ourselves and with the help of a landscaper, with no success, Critter Control caught a mole within a week. Very reasonably priced and very thorough. They’re the experts! We should have called them a lot sooner.
Justin was very professional and he and his team did the work quickly and thoroughly. This is a nice company to work with.
