Rats are a common problem in the Grants Pass area. When rats find food, water, and shelter on a property, they immediately settle in and start breeding. If a rat decides to move into your home, it will attract other rats, and the rat infestation will grow quickly. Rats can infest your home easily and be very difficult to get rid of.

Bugs Northwest specializes in getting rid of rats. If you discover a rat infestation in your home, call us. We know all about pest control in Grants Pass

Habits And Behaviors Of Common Rats

Here are some facts about the rats that may infest your home:

  • Rats can weigh up to a pound. You do not want them in your home.
  • Rats can carry serious diseases. Rats are bad enough, but their diseases can be worse.
  • Rats are family oriented. They vastly prefer to live within large social groups versus living alone.
  • Rats have hard, sharp teeth and use them to chew through almost anything in houses.
  • Rats are extremely wary pests, and DIY pest control rarely gets all of them.

Rats are hardy, durable pests, and they are superb at survival. DIY pest control methods are generally unable to eliminate every rat in your Grants Pass home, and as a result, an infestation in your home can easily survive your DIY efforts.

Rat prevention requires an expert understanding of both rats and how to get rid of rats. Bugs Northwest knows all about rats, and we can help you get rid of any rat infestation. Contact us today, and let us help you with rats. 

Why Rats Around Your Home Can Be Dangerous

Rats are well-known disease carriers. They have been causing diseases among people for centuries, and the rats in Grants Pass are more than willing to continue that tradition. Some diseases rats carry include leptospirosis, salmonellosis, and tularemia. Worse, all rats need to do to spread diseases is to come into contact with your counters, dinnerware, and food. You don’t need to see a rat to get sick.

Rats are notorious for chewing on things inside homes. Because of this, rats cause millions of dollars of damage to homes each year, with no signs of slowing down.

Do not let rats endanger your health and destroy your property. Contact Bugs Northwest the minute you see rats. We know how to kill rats fast and will help you regain your home.

Here are some things that attract rats to your home and how to correct them:

  • Open trash cans attract rats. Be sure to keep them tightly sealed.
  • Rats exploit gaps in homes to get in. Be sure to seal your house well.
  • Rats like your food. Keep stored food tightly sealed.
  • Rats like clutter. Be sure to clean up all the clutter around your home.
