My carpet has been chewed by rats
Question: I have recently discovered that a small portion of my carpet has been chewed away. It is located under a window, and there is a hole that leads down to the cement. The hole is maybe an inch wide. There are no signs of droppings. There is a small garden outside of the window, and there are often holes in the dirt. What could have done this? Would it be in the house?
Answer: Well, I suspect that this could be damage caused by rats. In order to be sure though, call us and set up an inspection of your home. If indeed this is a rodent issue, a highly trained Orkin Pest Specialist will inspect your property, looking for signs of infestation, entry points and conditions conducive to rodents. Orkin will develop a multifaceted treatment strategy to control a rodent infestation and prevent further entry into your home. This multifaceted treatment strategy will include:
the placement of traps,
inspecting for entry points (keep in mind they just need a hole the size of a quarter),
recommending elimination of conducive conditions,
and, in general, making it very difficult for the rats to enter your home.
So don't delay. Call Orkin now.
