Rats are all over the place
It is likely that you have seen rats outside of your home or work, in alleys, and around trash bins, which is normal to see, as these pests are constantly looking for ways to find food and shelter. However, when you see rats scurrying around your home, it is likely that you are already possibly dealing with an infestation. If you have trash bins with food scraps around your home, rats will be attracted to your trash, and if they can find a way inside, they will infiltrate your home, as they can squeeze their way into openings as small as a quarter.
- Rats have more than 60 contagious diseases such as Hantavirus, leptospirosis, typhus, meningitis, and even rat-bite fever. They transfer these hazardous diseases by spreading their saliva, urine, feces, bites, and even on fleas or ticks that have bitten an infected rodent.
- Rats can swim in water for up to three days. When a rat is flushed down the toilet alive it will swim back up the toilet.
- Their teeth are always growing! The teeth of rats grow 5 inches per year. They can chew through electrical wires, cinder blocks, and lead pipes.
- Rats can squeeze in through openings as small as half an inch!
The stealthy mouse infestation
Mice can be a truly annoying pest that can be a headache to deal with as they can and will find ways to fit into tiny openings and inhabit your home. This can be a very serious problem as mice have a very short gestation period and go into heat very frequently, which can lead to a serious infestation in your home or business. If you can hear mice running around in your home at night, you may have a dire situation on your hands and the best option for getting your home back under your control is to call an exterminator.
