Newark Rat Removal Tip: Rats Cause More Damage Than You Think
It's never a good thing to find out you have a rat that has taken up residence in your home or office. They reproduce several times per year and there is very rarely just one. A single pair of rats can produce two-thousand offspring in a single year. Never fool yourself into thinking there are only a few.
Rats are foraging little rodents with a consistent need to chew. They live to chew and reproduce. These dirty little creatures typically take up residence near humans and forage off the food left behind.
They carry many harmful diseases that are easily transmitted to humans and household pets. Rats also urinate and defecate as needed, even in motion. They leave their fecal matter behind everywhere they go. This alone can cause a great deal of damage.
Their urine and fecal matter carry salmonella and other infectious diseases. It also attracts other rodents, not just more rats. This completely multiplies the damage that can be caused.
The insulation in walls and attics is commonly ruined due to nesting and defecation. Replacing the insulation alone can cost thousands of dollars. However, this isn't the only damage they cause.
Damage Caused by Rats
The damage caused by rats that have taken up residence in a dwelling is typically extensive. The longer they are there, the more damage they cause.
Rats have very strong teeth and need to chew constantly. They can chew through anything, even concrete. They are little rodents that have no respect for any property. They will chew through soffits, gables and screens to get inside.
Once in and building their nests, they will chew on anything in their path. Paintings, clothes, books or anything they come across will do nicely. They will even chew holes in furniture to get inside and make a nest in the soft cushion material. They are not exclusive to walls, attics or any one material.
Rats will also chew on wires and wood. They can severely damage wooden structures and cause a fire hazard shorting out wires. They will even chew on wires attached to appliances and they will chew on PVC.
Rats cause anywhere between $500 million and $1 billion in damage to homes annually in the United States. They tend to congregate in large numbers and can survive the most difficult conditions. The plain truth is that rats are just difficult to deal with. It usually takes a professional with experience to successfully eradicate a rat population from a home or office.
