Getting Rid of Rats

RatWhy is Controlling Rats Important?

Rats have a stigma about them for being one of the deadliest pests and for good reason!

Rats are hosts to bacteria that cause deadly diseases, such as leptospirosis, typhus fever, rat-bite fever, and dozens more. They transmit disease through hair, droppings and urine. If food or water get contaminated, it could result in food poisoning.

Eliminating these pests from your home or business needs to be a main concern. If you own a rental property or a business establishment, the sight of rats will drive potential and existing customers away! Rats are quite destructive in many ways, they not only tunnel through your walls, but their droppings and urine also affect the air quality inside your home.

With all these hazards, it is extremely important to take care of the situation as soon as possible. Call a reputable and experienced pest control company immediately. Through comprehensive pest control treatment, you can eliminate rats from your home before it becomes a bigger issue.

When Is the Best Time to Contact a Pest Control Company?

Immediately. The most common time of the year we tend to see rate problems is in late summer or early autumn, which is the peek breeding season for rats.

Also, if you see rats running around during the day, you probably have a more significant rat problem since rats are typically nocturnal. If you find them running in your home during the day, it indicates a large population is harboring nearby.
