Rats regularly create big problems for Government and Commercial organizations. They are the biggest disease carriers and are rapid breeders. Rats are able to breed between 2–4 months after being born. Two rats living under ideal conditions can produce an astonishing 350 million rats in three years. Rats are nocturnal, 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.
By knowing their instinctual patterns, our team can work towards locating the nests and controlling them.
