Rat control in NJ is a service that has always been necessary because the species of rats have kept themselves alive for years. Rats can fall 20 meters without obtaining injuries, can tread water for three days, can eat many different types of food to sustain themselves and can survive an atomic bomb test. Additionally, rats can squeeze through holes as small as a 20 cent piece, and when rats breed, they can have anywhere from 30 to 80 offspring at one time.
Rats can cause many problems because they spread fleas and can carry diseases that can damage the health or even cause deaths of people. They tend to most commonly cause issues in restaurants. Once they find their way in, they can contaminate food with their droppings, urine and hair.
To keep rats from entering your home, business or other building, it is important to block entry points with materials such as bird wire, metal sheeting and steel wool. Door seals can also help prevent rats from entering. Because rats are good climbers, it is also important to make sure that drain piping is covered at the top and bottom. Always checking for openings near the top of buildings, such as roof vents, eaves, overhangs and rooftop air conditioning units is also wise to ensure that rats do not find their way in unwanted spaces.
