Rats and vermin can carry pathogens that spread diseases that can affect humans. According to the CDC, rats and mice can spread over 35 diseases – including Weil’s disease, Salmonella, Listeria and more – and are even responsible for an outbreak of monkey pox in 2003.
Characterised by a pair of incisors that grow up to 5 inches each year, rats gnaw and chew on electrical wires and other household objects to wear them down. When left to roam free, rats can cause serious structural damage to your home.

The most tell-tale sign of rats is clustered faeces that are usually dark in colour and pellet-shaped. Chewed electric cables, woodwork or brick is another key sign, as rats are avid gnawers and can cause structural damage if left alone.

Although from the same family, rats and mice are different in terms of their body shape, size, droppings and nest locations
