What do rats look like?

Rats are black or brown in color and can grow to be over 40 centimeters long! They are characterized by their smooth fur and their long tail, pointed nose, and large ears and eyes.


What is common rat behavior?

Rats are excellent climbers and are highly adaptable. They typically nest inside and under buildings and are often found in the upper parts of structures, or in places such as trees, roofs, attics, and rafters. Occasionally, you can find these rodents nesting in piles of rubbish or wood on the ground. Rats are nocturnal rodents that feed on fruits and nuts. However, they are omnivores, so they will eat whatever is available, including meat, grain, and tree bark. They are also very quick to reproduce and do so four to six times a year. Within just one year, a female rat can produce up to 40 babies! Rats are known to spread diseases through bites, contamination, physical contact, or by fleas that are feeding on them. These fleas can transmit serious diseases from rats to humans. The rat can also spread food poisoning by contaminating food or food preparation surfaces. You can also get Trichinosis by ingesting the under-cooked meat of animals that have previously fed on an infected rat. These rodents can also transmit rat bite fever to humans due to the bacteria in their mouths. Another reason to take caution if a rat infestation is suspected is the threat of Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, or HPS, which is transferred by the inhalation of rodent urine.

How do I know I have a rat problem in my home?

Rats are most commonly discovered by the actual sighting of the rodents. They also leave 12 to 13 mm droppings, characterized by their pointed ends. Additionally, rats leave a greasy film along surfaces, which occur when the rodent deposits the oils in its fur along an edge. They also leave behind nests.

How do I get rid of rats? Is getting rid of rats easy?

Since rats are known to spread disease, it is best to contact your local pest exterminator. Preventative measures include sealing all entryways in walls, eaves, and the roof, trimming all tree branches so that they can’t climb, and making sure that all windows and doors are screened.
