If you have a rat infestation, it is essential to know what rats are and how they can impact your life. Rats are rodents that live in colonies and will eat just about anything. They usually come into homes by chewing through wire or pipes to find food sources inside the house. The most commonplace for them to nest is on top of walls where wires connect, but also in attics and basements. When they enter a home, their droppings can cause health problems for humans and damage electrical wiring, insulation, woodwork and other household items. A rat infestation can be present in a home for several months before you detect them. However, once they are seen, the longer it takes to get rid of rats, the more likely it is that you will have an even more significant problem with further reproduction and damage to your property.
The average lifespan is two years, but a rat can live up to three years. During the gestation period, a female will have an average of 21 days, and she will have an average of six pups in one litter. There are sure signs that you may see if there is a rat infestation at your home or business, such as:
- The presence of droppings around the exterior entry points of the home, such as around doors and windows or along baseboards.
- The presence of small holes near electric wires that lead into your building.
- The sound of hurrying feet in walls during nighttime hours.
- You may see a rat run across floors or jump from one floor to another.
- Heavily gnawed food packages in cupboard areas associated with rats, such as an ammonia-like smell from their urine.
Suppose you think that you may have a rat infestation. In that case, it is crucial to contact a professional Poulton-with-Fearnhead Rat Control Treatments and Removal Service company as soon as possible. A Poulton-with-Fearnhead Rat exterminator will be able to inspect your property and determine the size of the infestation, as well as make recommendations on how to exterminate the rats and ensure they do not return.
Most rats are nocturnal, which means that they're most active at night. You are more likely to see them during the daytime if there is a large infestation or if they are "feeling bold". Rats tend to shy away from humans and will try to avoid contact. They tend to nest in dark areas where there is little human activity.
It is not uncommon for rats to gnaw on almost anything to keep their teeth worn down, but they are not usually a threat to humans or pets unless threatened or cornered. You may see them burrowing into boxes and bags of food for easy access to an abundant food source if one exists inside your home. Rats are also known to urinate everywhere they go, so if you find a foul order or see black smudgy looking stains around your home, it may indicate rat activity nearby.
Three main types of rats can infest your home - brown rats, black rats and roof rats. Brown rats are the most common, and they can grow up to 18 inches long, including their tail. They are typically a light brown or grey colour with a lighter underbelly. Black rats are also known as roof rats because they like to nest in high places like roofs, trees and tall bushes. They have black fur, weigh about 12 ounces and are about 12 inches long. Roof rats tend to be more active during the daytime, but they sleep in nests at night just like their brown rat counterparts.
They have smaller ears than other types of rats and a pointy nose with a slender tail that usually exceeds their body length. The last type of common pest rat is the Norway rat. They are also known as the brown rat, common rat, sewer rat or barn rat. They typically have greyish-brown fur, weigh about a pound, and grow up to 16 inches long, including their tail.
