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.

5 Types of Rat Damage

Rats can cause more damage than a lot of pests, despite their fairly small size. They always cause some sort of damage, no matter where they are.

Rats need to constantly chew and gnaw on materials in order to keep the length of their ever-growing incisors under control. Some damage that rats cause includes:

  1. Getting into your sealed food
  2. Gnawing through food containers
  3. Contaminating cupboards/kitchens with their urine and droppings
  4. Spreading diseases
  5. Gnawing and causing structural damage

Are Rats Dangerous to My Health?

Rats are unhygienic animals and can contaminate homes and businesses simply by existing. Their feces and urine carry extensive diseases and parasites. After chewing electrical wiring, a lingering threat of electrocution can be present in homes. Some of the parasites rats can carry include:

  • Salmonellosis
  • Leptospirosis
  • Rat-bite Fever
  • Tapeworms
  • Fleas
  • Ticks
