Rats in or around your home can cause serious problems. Even if they are not in your living areas, any rat problem inside your home should be treated immediately! Rat control is important to avoid a number of serious diseases, which rats are known to transmit. The Center for Disease Control lists nearly a dozen diseases directly linked to rats, including Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome, Lassa Fever, Leptospirosis, and Salmonellosis.
Rats can cause significant damage to wiring and insulation, and even gnaw through walls and flooring. Rat teeth grow continuously, roughly 0.4mm per day, and their lower incisors are harder than steel, platinum, or iron. Rats in your yard can also present tremendous risk, especially if you have children and/or pets. Rats can undermine hill sides, retaining walls and other structures due to their burrowing.
