The Potential Damage Rats Can Do To Your Home And Business
Rats are a common pest in homes, businesses, and cities across the world. They’re known for their destructive behavior and tendency to cause massive amounts of damage. If you suspect you have a rat infestation, it’s important to understand the full extent of what kind of destruction they can cause so you can take appropriate measures to get rid of them.
Damage To Property And Structures
Rats are capable of digging, chewing, and clawing through wood, wallboard, cardboard, plastic containers, glass jars—the list goes on. This means that if there is any food or material that rats want access to in your home or business, they will find a way to get it.
Aside from getting into food storage areas like pantries and cupboards, they can also chew through walls and electrical wiring to create tunnels and nests. This type of damage can be costly to repair as it could potentially lead to fires or water leaks if not addressed properly.
And then there’s the issue of disease; if rats get into your food supply or living quarters (like an attic), they can spread germs that could make you very ill.
Damage To Crops And Gardens
If you have an outdoor garden or crops being grown in an agricultural setting, rats are a major threat. Not only do they eat the crops themselves but their burrowing activities can also disrupt soil structure which leads to erosion and plant death.
Additionally, rats may carry diseases that can be passed onto plants if consumed by humans or animals – so it’s important to take precautions if you think there is an infestation near your garden or crops.
Damage To Livestock And Pets
Rats are known for carrying diseases that can affect livestock such as cattle and sheep as well as pets like cats and dogs. They are also known for attacking small animals such as chickens or rabbits – both by eating them alive or spreading diseases via bites or scratches that can make the animal ill or even kill them outright in some cases!
It’s important to keep any potential rat infestations away from these types of animals so they don’t become infected with any illnesses carried by these pests.

For rodent control make sure that all potential entry points are sealed off. This includes caulking gaps around baseboards and doors, patching up holes in walls, replacing weather stripping and screens on windows and doors where needed, patching up any holes in the foundation of your house if there are any, and inspecting air vents for signs of damage or weakness.
If you already have an infestation then it is recommended to contact a pest control service to inspect your property thoroughly to identify entry points and recommend proper rodent and pest control treatments.
