Apart from being bigger in size, rats are often bigger problems than mice for both commercial and domestic properties. Being nocturnal they will usually only roam at night, which can make them more difficult to detect and catch. However, they rarely stray far from their nest, and often stick to well-known paths, so by knowing their instinctual patterns our team can work towards catching them quickly.
Rats In Offices
Unlike mice, rats have a fondness for rubber and plastic, leading them to chew on electrical wires and telephone cables which can often cause system failures. This can cause serious problems for both commercial businesses and domestic residences.
Like mice, rats are notorious carriers of disease and bacteria and will often seek food in commercial kitchens – the perfect place to spread these diseases. To help prevent rats in your workspace or home, ensure you keep all food stored in sealed containers, keep bins sealed and clean up and scraps or crumbs that could attract these unwanted pests.
