Learn More About Rats
The rat (Rattus norvegicus) is also known as the brown rat, the grey rat, the sewer rat, and the Norway rat. The rat has a body measuring 25 cm and a tail of about the same length. Its tail is thick and scaly. Greyish brown in colour, it weighs 350 g when fully grown. It’s only rarely seen during the day since it’s a nocturnal animal. Its presence can be noticed by its droppings, its tracks, or its tooth marks on materials. If you are still not sure about their presence, a rat control specialist could help you to find it out!

The risks associated with rats
The damage that a pack of rats can cause is not negligible. Request the services of a qualified rat control professional to exterminate them. If they attack material goods, they will leave marks from their two incisors on them in several places. They can also gnaw on pipes or electrical cables, which could cause water leaks or fires. They will also leave a large number of droppings along their way. Rats can also be harmful to your health: they can transmit diseases following a bite or due to the parasites that they carry. To minimize the risks associated with the presence of rats, a rat control specialist from ExterminaPro can set traps in appropriate locations to get rid of these harmful rodents.
