Why control rat?

Rats are known to be direct transmitters of nearly a dozen diseases and are capable of breeding extensively – within two months of being born. This makes rats a particular concern in commercial and government building and in hospitals.

  • Like most pests, rats are naturally drawn to easy sources of food, like kitchens, breakrooms, restaurants, and refuse areas. 
  • Rats are known carriers of multiple serious diseases, this puts anyone using these facilities at risk of being infected.
  • Disease isn’t the only risk to commercial organisations posed by rats. Rats are known to chew into cables and electrical wires, which can lead to breakdowns in infrastructure and even fires.
  • Rats are typically distinguished from mice by their size. Rats can grow to be up to 1kg. Their size means that they will usually nest in basements or crawl spaces
  • Rats are stronger than mice and can even gnaw through various building materials, including glass, sheet metal, wood and aluminium
