Why Remove Rats?
Rats reproduce fast, and a simple rat problem can turn into a rat infestation that can get hard to handle. Because of that it is important to have rats controlled. These rodents also carry bacteria, viruses, and diseases such as hantavirus, leptospirosis, and tularemia that can be transmitted to you and your family. For rat control contact Critter Authority.

Rats in the Attic Removal
Rats tend to get into the attic through the attic vents or small openings or cracks on the roof. Once in the attic, rats tend to tear up the insulation to nest and also use it as their bathroom, spreading their bacteria, germs, diseases and viruses making you and your household members sick. For that reason it is important to remove rats from your home. Critter Authority can assess your home for rat control.
Attic Insulation and Attic Restoration
After rats have been removed it is recommended to remove and replace the insulation that has been affected by these rodents. The attic space will also need to be cleaned and sanitized thoroughly. That will help to disinfect the area and get rid of all the bacteria from soiled insulation. Seal outs and exclusion repairs are also recommended to get done after rats have been removed. This will help to prevent and block the entry points from rodents to get back in your home.
