Do Rats Endanger my Family?

When they get into your home, rats expose your loved ones to numerous health and safety hazards. As you might imagine, these pests come into contact with some pretty unpleasant things before coming into your home. This is exactly why rat control is so important. Dangers of a rat infestation include:

  • Disease: Rats and other rodents can carry and spread many dangerous diseases like Typhus, Rabies, Hantavirus, Salmonella, and even Bubonic Plague.
  • Contaminated Food: All rodents are most commonly drawn into your home by the presence of reliable shelter and free food. But, when rats come into contact with your food, they can contaminate it, making it inedible and causing you to have to waste money. 
  • House Fires: Rats’ teeth never stop growing so they constantly need to chew on things to keep them usable. Your home is full of options for this and given time, it’s inevitable that they’ll set their sites on an electrical wire. When they do this though, it can cause electrical fires which can easily spread throughout the home. Insurance adjusters estimate that up to 25% of fires in America are caused by rodents. 
  • Pet Injury: Rats, like most animals, are territorial. If cornered by a cat or a dog, rats can inflict painful bites and scratches which can easily become infected or spread Rabies.
