Are you hearing little squeaking, scratching, running noises in your walls and attic? If you hear these noises mostly at night, then you just may have a rat in your home!
Little known fact: a female rat can go into heat just a few days after she has a litter! Because of this, a few rats can grow into an infestation in no time. Rats understand that predators are hunting them and they do not like to be out in the open. They prefer dark, warm, safe places to hide such as your attic or walls. Once you have seen a rat out in the open, there are probably many more hiding in your walls and attic and even your crawl space!
Did you know that Norway rats can hold their breath up to 3 minutes? Once they chew into your water pipes, they can swim through your pipes and actually come out through your toilet! And nobody wants to share their water with a disgusting rat!
