Brown Rats (Rattus norvegicus)

Rats can be a nuisance and can pose serious health risks to humans and pets. They can carry leptospirosis along with many other diseases and parasites that can be transmitted through their droppings and urine. In addition, rats are known for causing damage to property by chewing through wires, walls, and insulation.

There are several methods that can be used for rat control, including trapping, poisoning, and using deterrents. Trapping involves setting up baited traps to capture rats alive or kill them. Poisoning is another common method, in which rodenticide is placed in areas where rats are known to frequently visit.

It is important to take action promptly and effectively when dealing with a rat infestation. In addition to causing damage and spreading disease, rats can reproduce rapidly, making the population difficult to control once it gets out of hand. Regular inspections and preventive measures can help keep rats at bay and protect your property and those who live in it.
