How To Get Rid Of Rats On Your Warren Property

January 31, 2022 - Rats

Wherever you live in America, you are certain to come across different species of rats at some point. The problem is that you might find these big rats in your home, somewhere you desperately don’t want them to be. Rats can be especially dangerous for your Warren property. Learn how professional pest control can protect your property from these pests.

What Do Rats In Warren Look Like? 

In Warren, you can find a few different types of rats that will invade your property, but the two most common ones that you will find are the Norway rat and the roof rat. Roof rats are a little bit smaller, sitting at about 6 to 8 inches long with an equally long tail. They are also a brown to black color while their Norway counterparts are brown with some scattered black hairs. They are normally 7 to 9 ½ inches long and are heavier than their roof rat counterparts.

Norway rats are going to be the big rats that you come across, but regardless of what the species of rats are that are on your property, you will still want to keep rats away. These rats can still inflict incredible damage on your property and threaten your family.

Why You Don't Want Rats On Your Warren Property

These two different types of rats can be incredibly dangerous for both you and your property. One of the main damaging things that these rats do is chew through everything. Their teeth grow throughout their lives, and they need to constantly chew and gnaw in order to keep them in check. If left alone for too long, rats will quickly chew through:

  • Walls
  • Wires
  • Pipes
  • Insulation
  • Furniture
  • Clothes

Unfortunately, these rats will be hidden for a long time, meaning that you will first see signs of rats before you actually see these different species of rats. The rats inside walls will stay hidden, but you will find your home falling into disrepair, and potentially even find fire and water damage. 

Beyond just fire damage though, you and the other people on your property are being exposed to diseases and viruses when you have rats in your home. It is important to keep rats away because they can potentially carry fleas, ticks, and mites, as well as diseases and viruses like:

  • Leptospirosis
  • Rat-bite fever
  • Tularemia
  • Salmonellosis

They can potentially bite you, but more often than not, the rats inside walls will stay there while you are out and about in your home. When you are gone or asleep, they will make their way into your home, contaminating food and surfaces with their droppings and saliva, putting you at risk.
