Once rats gain access to a property, they can be quite persistent, posing risks to humans, domestic animals and the property. Since they breed rapidly, it is important to deal with rats at the first signs of a rat infestation, before it becomes a bigger problem.
Signs of an infestation: The most common signs of a rat infestation include droppings, scratching noises, rat holes, foot prints, and nests.
Risks: According to the Center for Disease Control, rats are directly linked to numerous serious diseases. They can also cause damage to property when they create nests in your home’s insulation, or chew through walls or floor joists. Rats tend to burrow, which can undermine retaining walls and undermine hill sides. When they chew on electrical cables, it can lead to fires.
