Are you hearing a tiny, squeaking, scratching noise in your wall? Or overhead in your ceiling? That tiny noise that gives you the creeps and won’t let you sleep at night? If you are hearing that noise mostly at night, then you probably have a rat. Or two. Or dozens.
Just two rats can turn into over 1500 rats in a year. A female rat can go into heat days after she has a litter. As a result, just a few rats can grow into an infestation in no time. Rats do not like to be out in the open. They prefer dark, warm places to hide such as your attic or walls. So by the time you actually see a rat, all the good places to hide in your home are probably full of his cousins. Rats are kind of like potato chips. You probably won’t have just one!
Anyone in the pest control business will tell you that the rat is one of the mot destructive animals you can have on your property! Rats, mice and squirrels have to chew constantly to file down their teeth, otherwise they would not be able to chew. Did you know that a rat’s teeth can grow up to SIX INCHES in a year if they weren’t filed down constantly? Imagine a rat with huge fangs! That’s the kind of thing that belongs in a horror movie, not in your home!
Speaking of movies, did you know that a rat’s bite is stronger per inch than the bite of a great white shark like the one in Jaws? The strength of a rat’s bite can be up to 12 tons (24,000 pounds) per square inch. However, the bite of a great white shark is only around 2 tons (4,000 pounds) per square inch. No wonder rats can quickly chew into your home!
