Rats can be a major problem for homeowners, business owners and the general public.  Rats are known carriers of disease and can cause damage to property and structure.


Evidence of rats can consist of capsule-shaped droppings, burrows, chewed food; gnaw marks on walls and surfaces, and footprints with tail marks.


If you have an infestation, hire a licensed professional and follow these precautions.
