Watching a mouse move from bedroom to living room can be a very frightening experience. Few people look at rodents without fear and worry. But even if you don’t feel uncomfortable around rats, it’s important to realize that they don’t belong in your home and that they are a dangerous pest. Read on and discover 4 reasons why rodents should stay away from you and your family.
1. Rats bite
Is there any more reason to want to see them out of your house forever? Although rats do not look for the human to attack, when they feel cornered or attacked they can be quite aggressive, trying to defend themselves or their offspring. Sores caused by a rodent bite, in addition to pain, can cause serious infections if not properly treated.
2. Rats transmit disease
You’ve certainly heard of the Black Death. This disease was started by rats, causing the death of more than half of the European population at the time. Today rats continue to be transport vehicles for various dangerous diseases and bacteria, so diverse that they probably prefer to remain ignorant. For this reason, your home is more protected with them far away.
3. Rats make everything dirty
One of the first signs that you may be in the presence of a rat plague is excrement. Small droppings scattered around the house are a sure sign that you have new housemates and quite furry ones! Their feces are also dangerous and transmit various infectious diseases. In addition, a dirty house attracts other pests, such as cockroaches.
4. Rats damage your home
Like dogs, rats love to chew everything. The difference is that rats don’t just gnaw on your slippers or your favorite sweater. Rodents normally walk on the walls and under the floor of your home, having access to much more dangerous material. They can even damage wooden structures and even gnaw electrical parts, even causing fires.
