Rats
Rats (Rattus spp.) have caused more human suffering and more economic damage than any other vertebrate pest. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.

Rat Damage

Rats are known to be one of the most destructive pests. Wherever rats are present, you can count on some type of damage to the property!

Rats need to constantly chew and gnaw on materials in order to keep the length of their ever-growing incisors under control. Rats will create damages by:

  • Getting into your sealed food
  • Gnawing through food containers
  • Contaminating cupboards/kitchens with their urine and droppings
  • Spreading diseases
  • Gnawing and causing structural damage

Health Concerns from Rats

  • Salmonellosis
  • Leptospirosis
  • Rat-bite Fever
  • Tapeworms
  • Fleas
  • Ticks
