Rat Damaged Buildings
Buildings with structural damage by rats need expert management to end the plague.
Rats can cause damage to the structural supports of homes, apartments, offices, and practically any type of building.
It cannot be said that they are precisely architects, quite the contrary, we could well define them as devastating.
By definition, an architect is the one in charge of designing, directing the construction and maintenance of buildings.
Rats are the opposite, they destroy everything in their path, cause serious damage to building structures, gnaw on electrical wiring, downspouts …
And not only that, but they also harm the lives of all those around them, whether they are living in a building or an entire neighborhood.
And although it may sound too dramatic, in addition to the structural damage they cause, it must be added that they are transmitters of dangerous diseases.
If you detect their presence, you must notify a local pest control company, so that they can develop a personalized program adapted to the needs of the place as soon as possible.
They will inspect the affected areas very carefully, looking at every nook and cranny, sometimes, it is enough to know the signs that these pests leave to find the entrance holes and end the infestation.
Buildings with structural damage by rats, where do they enter?
Rats can even access through wiring areas, this will not be an obstacle for them, nor is a wooden wall, plaster, plastic pipes, aluminum insulation … they will chew and chew until they make a hole through which to access our houses in search of food, water, and shelter.
It is important to look for the different points where rats, ceilings, basements, garages, pipes that have been without water for a long time, vents, cracks adjacent to other buildings, etc. have been able to enter.
Furthermore, the presence of the pest increases the risk of contracting diseases such as hantavirus or salmonellosis through its urine, droppings, and nesting materials.
On average in a single year, a rat can have 5 to 10 litters, although this may vary depending on the type of rat. Each litter will average 8 to 12 offspring, although not all survive.
Therefore, buildings damaged by rats can house thousands of these rodents in a very short time.
If you do not look for a pest control solution in just over three months, you can have a whole community of rats that multiply and multiply.
