Rats are known to be direct transmitters of nearly a dozen diseases, and are capable of breeding extensively – and within two months of being born. This makes rats a particular concern in commercial and government building, and in hospitals. Although rats seldom wander far from known paths and their nests, they are also nocturnal, making them more challenging to detect, catch, and control.
However, our team has a deep understanding of the primal nature of rats, and they use this knowledge extensively when it comes to locating nests, and controlling rat infestations.
Rats in Buildings:
Like most pests, rats are naturally drawn to easy sources of food, like kitchens, breakrooms, restaurants, and refuse areas. With rats being known carriers of multiple serious diseases, this puts anyone using these facilities at risk of being infected.
You can minimise the risk of attracting rats to your workplace by cleaning up food scraps, storing all food in sealed containers, and by keeping bins clean, and sealed. But disease isn’t the only risk to commercial organisations posed by rats. Rats are known to chew into cables and electrical wires, which can lead to breakdowns in infrastructure, and even fires.
While prevention is always the ideal approach, it is almost impossible to keep commercial buildings free of rats at all times. Early detection is important, helping to eradicate nests before you succumb to a rat infestation. Our team is able to manage rat infestations of any size, along with offering regular inspections of your workplace or building, and any essential materials to provide you with a reliable long-term solution.
