Rats! That’s what comes to mind when we think of Plano pest control. One of the most notorious pests around, rats are common in the area, and if you’re discovering them in your home for the first time, you might not know where to start. The good news is that this article has all kinds of useful information about what rats look like, the health risks they bring to the home, and, of course, how to prevent rats and expertly control a rat infestation. Join us for a quick look at these potentially dangerous neighborhood pests.
Different types of rats sport slightly different physical features, but for now let’s focus on their common, shared features. When you picture a rat, you’re probably picturing a roof rat. Roof rats have long, hairless tails, they’re gray in color, and they can get pretty large, up to eight inches or so.
Other types of rats commonly found in the U.S. have similar appearances. They might be a slightly different size, for example, and their heads might have a slightly different shape, but they’re typically gray or brown, possibly with some white mixed in, and they have long tails. Rats are much larger than mice, also, so if you spot pests that are just an inch or two long, you probably have mice, not rats. If you manage to see a rat scurry away, you’ll probably recognize it as a rat right away. Trust your gut. And if you want confirmation, ask the pros.
Having a rat problem in your home also means that there’s a health risk present, period. In fact, rats have become associated with disease at a historical level. Rats can carry a range of diseases that can affect humans. While bubonic plague isn’t as major a health problem as it was hundreds of years ago, rats can still bring disease into your home. That’s bad news for everyone under your roof, to say the least, and it’s especially dangerous if someone in your home has a compromised or weakened immune system. If you’ve seen rats inside your home, be sure to clean kitchen surfaces and other eating areas every day with antibacterial cleaning products.
The best way to deal with rats in your home is to keep rats away to begin with. The following tips can help:
Rat prevention for your home is as simple as following these steps on a regular basis. Falling behind with these preventive measures is practically inviting rats into your home, especially if there are nearby rats moving through the area.
