PEST LIBRARY / RATS
Do you hear scampering and scratching noises at night time? Are your food packages being chewed through? These might be the signs of a rat infestation! Other signs include droppings and urine, burrows or holes in and around foundation walls, or tracks on dusty surfaces. Because rats breed very quickly, getting rid of rats can be an especially difficult problem.
A rat is larger than a mouse and can weigh up to 0.5 kilograms (1 pound). The Norway rat and the roof rat look similar, but their habits are different. The Norway rat builds elaborate systems of tunnels and burrows at ground level. It prefers damp areas such as crawl spaces or building perimeters. The roof rat is an agile climber and prefers to live in trees, vines and other dense vegetation. It will infest attics, rafters or roofs, and upper stories of buildings.
Rats are notorious carriers of disease, and can damage property. Rats can chew through walls and electrical wiring, which could potentially lead to serious circuitry issues or electrical fires
Getting rid of rats is a difficult task, but the best way to stop an infestation is to take the proper preventative measures. Here are some of the best tips for how to get rid of rats in the house.
