Rats can be a major pest if they get into your property. Crafty and relentless, rats will exploit any gap in search of a warm place to nest and easy access to food. Not only are rats capable of causing significant damage, they can also transmit diseases. They can contaminate food via urine and droppings and they are also pretty frightening to come across in your home or business.
Rat removal solutions can vary depending on the rat species. Since rats are nocturnal, it’s unlikely that you will actually spot a live rat. However, if spotted, rats are pretty easy to identify. Black rats have a pointed nose, large ears, and a slender body, while brown rats have a blunt nose, small ears, and a thicker body.
Correct identification will help with choosing the most effective rat removal and prevention method, saving you both time and money. If you think you’ve spotted the signs of rats around your property, contact your local Western Exterminator office today and schedule a property inspection.
Though DIY rat control and prevention may appear the cheaper option, the chances of sub-standard control are significantly higher. Incorrect pest identification, treatment, and/or additional professional services required after the fact will make the overall cost higher in the long run.
