Rats can be prolific breeders. In a very short time, a few of these rodents can multiply into hundreds. Within a few months, they can increase their numbers by 20 times or more. And, as you might imagine, the more of these rodents that are in the structure, the more damage that will be caused. This is not opinion, this is fact, and this is why rat exterminators must be brought in as soon as possible.
As mentioned above, rats are known to cause an alarming number of fires each and every year across the country, and this includes structures in Orange County and Los Angeles. It has been estimated that these pests cause upwards of 50,000 fires each year. The dollar cost for these fires is staggering, but the loss of life caused by these fires is beyond reckoning. Professional rat exterminators can remove this threat as they remove the cause of the threat.
Many homeowners will call in rat exterminators simply because they are concerned that the pests are contaminating their food.

It is also important to work with professional rat exterminators who follow the Center for Disease Control Guidelines for Rat Cleanup.
