Rats must be the most dangerous and infectious pest that may infest a property. Rats are carriers of many bacterial and serious diseases. They have the ability to infect food and storage areas of the home thus resulting in the spreading of dangerous pathogens. Rats are also known for their intelligence and their unified behavior i.e. they look out for each other so to speak and give out danger warnings to the rest of the colony. This only goes to show that if you have doubts of rat invasion it is best to get in touch with a professional exterminator right that moment and inform them of the unpleasant encounter. Ridding a property of rats on your own is next to impossible, as said they are smart creatures and will not easily be trapped or killed. Rats are omnivores just like us, so they will feed of any food that humans have left unattended or forgotten. Problem with rats is that they also feed on nasty stuff like excrements, garbage and carcasses of other animals which makes them the sole carriers of a whole range of bacteria and viruses and all the infections that come with those.
Once they have made their way inside the property, the rats tend to hide in dark, secluded places near heat emitters like hot water pipes, boilers etc. Their main objective will be to organize a place where they can mate and give birth, thus enlarging the colony and the infestation itself. This shows that a rat problem should be addressed with much seriousness and attention, professional exterminators know rat nature well and will apply proper measures. Pest controllers will exterminate living rats inside the house and at the same time prevent further multiplication. Attempting to banish rats on your own will likely result in failure, as already mentioned rats are intelligent and highly social creatures and will not easily be trapped or killed by simple means. The expertise and skills of our professional pest controllers will make all the difference, since combination of chemical and mechanical treatments may be required for the job.
