It's the middle of the night. The house is quiet. Suddenly, you hear an ominous scratching sound. Perhaps it's coming from the attic or maybe the kitchen. Sound familiar? You may have a rat problem.
Rats are a common problem throughout the Tampa Bay area. They spread disease, cause fires by gnawing through electrical wires, and generally raise havoc once they've entered a home. They are prolific breeders, so when you see one, know that there are probably many more unseen.
The two rats that frequently pose the most problems for Tampa Bay property owners are Florida roof rats, also known as Florida fruit rats, and Florida Norway rats.
