Rats (Rattus spp.) have caused more human suffering and more economic damage than any other vertebrate pest. From causing plague epidemics (the "Black Death" of Europe) to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on stored grain or gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind.

Rat Problems and Infestation

Some believe killing rats is the best solution to a rat infestation. The reality of that is - More problems can be created that way. Improper rat control can result in wildlife carcasses inside of your home and additional infestations by insects and other animals trying to eat the carcass.
