The presence of Rats inside your building can be catastrophic to your business, reputation and directly affect income. Rats like all rodents need to gnaw continually as their teeth grow throughout their lives (like human fingernails).
This gnawing will often lead to damage to electrical/computer wires, plastic pipes and even the fabric of buildings which can lead to fires, floods, and expensive repair bills.
Rats are also carriers of diseases’ such as tuberculosis, salmonella, gastroenteritis, rat bite fever, Leptospirosis (Weil’s disease) and numerous others that can often cause death. Their droppings and fur will also contaminate food preparation surfaces and foodstuffs. Rodents are incontinent and consequently foul wherever they travel.
Rats also breed at an alarming rate. Though they do not live long (2 to 3 years maximum) during their short lives they can produce many young. Once they’re sexually maturity, at the age of 3 to 4 months, a male-and-female brown rat pair can have as many as 2,000 babies in the course of a year.
