Rat Exterminators

Rodents can be quite secretive and live in your home for a long time without you noticing. Even if they’re not in your home yet, they soon could be. Once inside your home, mice and rats re-produce quickly. In no time, you are fighting a full-on infestation.

Rat infestations can cause considerable damage to infested buildings and local agriculture. Rats are also known carriers of many diseases and prove a health hazard to humans. Rat populations grow quickly and steadily. Rat control is best started before infestations.

On average, a rat will consume 25-30 g of food and drink approximately 60 ml of water per day. If wild rats enter your home, they may carry parasites and diseases that are harmful to humans and animals, including Leptospirosis (Weil’s disease, which can be fatal to humans) and Ringworm.

Once rats have been removed from the home, it is important to seal off any possible entrances to the home and take prevention precautions.
