Rats are one of our most serviced and one of the most common pest you will find in Florida. Rats tend to make set up their homes close to water sources. Rats can enter your home many ways, they can burrow up from underneath it, climb plants and trees that lean up against your home, and can gnaw through tiny holes. Rats mainly enter your home looking for food. Some common signs of rat infestations are their droppings, gnaw marks on things like weather strips, and grease marks. Rats are a serious problem because they carry serious diseases and on top of that they can also carry fleas.
