Beware of disease-carrying rats
Keep your residence free of their effects with help from Tactical Pest and Termite Solutions
Strong, determined and nocturnal, rats can chew through plastic, soft concrete and steel to get to food sources. To help rodent proof your home, securely store your food and trash, declutter paper where they like to nest and hide, and seal cracks with copper wool (they can’t chew through it). Rat feces is larger (about ½ inch long) than the small black rice-like droppings of mice. Watch for the location of droppings to identify a rat’s trail, usually through areas including kitchens, pantries, cupboards and attics.
Not only can they do a lot of damage to your home and garage, but they carry serious diseases. Pathogens from rats can easily spread to humans, particularly hantavirus, a rare infectious disease that can cause deadly lung and heart issues.
