Frequently Asked Questions

Are Firebrats Dangerous?

Firebrats are generally considered nuisance pests and are not dangerous to humans. They do not bite or sting and are not known to transmit diseases. However, firebrats can cause damage to fabrics, paper, and other materials when they enter homes. Their presence may also indicate underlying moisture issues or high temperatures in a home.

Why do I have a Firebrat problem?

Firebrats are attracted to properties that offer them warm, moist environments and access to food sources such as paper, fabrics, and starches. They may enter homes and buildings in search of warmth, moisture, and food. Poorly sealed doors, windows, or gaps in walls can allow firebrats to gain entry to your property.

Where will I find Firebrats?

Firebrats can be found both indoors and outdoors. Outside, they may be found in warm, damp areas such as compost piles or under rocks. Inside, they may be found in dark, warm, and moist areas like basements, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, as well as near heating sources like furnaces, boilers, or water heaters.

How do I get rid of Firebrats?

To get rid of firebrats, first identify the areas where they are congregating. Implement proper sanitation practices, reduce clutter, and eliminate moisture issues in and around your home. Seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows to prevent firebrats from entering. Use insecticides, baits, or traps as needed. For persistent infestations, consider hiring a professional pest control service.

How can I prevent Firebrats?

Preventing firebrats involves maintaining a clean and clutter-free property, addressing moisture issues, and sealing any entry points. Regularly clean both inside and outside your home, paying special attention to potential hiding spots. Repair any water leaks, control humidity levels, and seal gaps and cracks in walls, doors, and windows.
