Rats - The Problem
Rats are known carriers of pathogens and can readily spread various dieseases to both pets and humans.
Some diseases are asthma and food poisoning.
Rats constantly chew through cables, furniture, books, and other belongings causing damage to many items.
If left unchecked they can infest houses sheds and garages with large populations in a very short space in time.
Personal Safety is paramount when dealing with rodent infestations.
wearing gloves when picking up dead animals, handling bait stations and handling any type of bait, are just a few reasons why you should use a professional pest manager, rather than DIY.
