Those “dirty rats” will be long gone after we do our job!
Rats can cause electrical fires in buildings by gnawing through plastic electrical junction boxes or wiring. Rats must constantly gnaw on hard objects to cut back their constantly growing incisor teeth.In addition, they live in the most unsanitary places, and are carriers of serious health risks to humans from their droppings and constant incontinence (they use urine trails to find their way in the dark).
There are two pest species of rats commonly found in domestic and commercial premises – the brown rat (Norway rat) and the black rat (Roof rat). The identification of each species is essential to formulate an effective control program.Where do they live and breed? Rats and mice live in drains, under concrete, in sub-floors and in garbage refuse areas, kitchens, roof voids and other areas where a potential food and moisture source is available.Rats and mice often become a serious problem in cold winter months when they seek food and warmth inside buildings. They may suddenly appear in large numbers when excavation work disturbs their in-ground nesting locations, or their food source is changed, such as, rats feeding in school premises may enter adjoining properties during the school holidays.
Rats are commonly a problem where a building is located near waterways, creeks and canals or other places where ready water supply is available.
