how old do rats live

Galveston, County TX Rodent entry elimination: We see many attempts by handymen, pest control companies, and rodent extraction companies that do not include the removal of any roofing material. Often the rat prevention in Galveston, County TX includes the emptying of a can of foam into the void. Without the removal of roofing material, there is no assurance that rodent entry will be eliminated. When we encounter these substandard attempts, we must first remove the previous application.  When this includes foam, the extraction of the foam takes longer than the application of our wire prevention product.
