The black rat, otherwise commonly known as the roof rat, is one of the most troublesome and damaging rodents throughout the United States, especially during the spring. For this reason, Family Pest Control emphasizes the importance of rodent removal.

San Antonio residents who have noticed the sound of scurrying from above their homes should contact the services of a professional company immediately because by the time spring rolls by, adult roof rats will give birth to their litters that will continue to attempt to occupy the familiar juvenile home.

Not only can roof rats damage your property, eat your food, and scare your loved ones, but they can also carry and spread diseases. As you may already know, the catastrophic bubonic plague in Europe was created through the circulation of fleas and bacteria by small rats. Although many medical advancements and breakthroughs have been made in recent years to prevent such an epidemic from ever happening again, roof rats can still be detrimental to the health of your entire family.

Roof rats can begin reproducing between the ages of 2 and 5 months and without the proper extermination services can breed four to six litters, or 40 new rodents, per year. By neglecting a small infestation, a tiny problem can quickly escalate into a major one.

For fast and effective rodent removal, San Antonio residents can rely on Family Pest Control. To learn more about their services and how they have built a reputation as the premier exterminating company in San Antonio, Texas, visit their website at
