Rats. They are a Pest that has evolved to survive alongside us. With there ever growing incisors and disease they spread, they are a very dangerous pest to share your property with, both for occupants and the property itself. With there incisor teeth continually growing, rats have to chew and gnaw on a regular basis. This can be wood electrical cables and pipework, which in turn has been known to cause fires within the property. Apart from the dangers of chewing, they also carry some dangerous diseases that can be passed on to humans. Some of the diseases that can be spread from rats to people are, bubonic and pneumonic plague, murine typhus, salmonella, leptospirosis, hantavirus and tularemia. They transmit this disease if they bite or scratch humans, and also by leaving their droppings and urine around your home. Humans can also get sick when rats contaminate their food or run across counter tops where food is prepared.
