The longer rats are allowed to breed in your home, the harder they are to terminate. Rats are large, destructive mammals that will chew on anything. Additionally, they are unsanitary critters known to carry a variety of bacteria and diseases that can be transmitted to people and pets.
Damaging Effects of a Rat Infestation
A growing rat infestation can cause serious damage to homes and businesses if not swiftly dealt with. Common rat behaviors that result in extensive and costly damage include:
- Chewing on wiring, drywall, and wooden structures
- Nesting in and soiling attic insulation
- Contaminating food
Rats can also contaminate homes by spreading infectious diseases like leptospirosis or the hantavirus lung infection. If you notice rats on your property, don’t waste time trying to combat them on your own. Rats are cautious rodents that can learn how to navigate around and avoid traps. Instead, contact rat removal professionals before too much destruction is done to your property.
