Below you will find three reasons that rats are scarier than you might think. Read this and then call in a professional like Alliance Pest Management to take care of any rats you may think are attacking your home.

They Never Want to Leave

Once rats have invaded your home, they don’t ever want to leave. Like horror movie creatures, rats spread not only their germs, but their diseases everywhere in your home and they multiply like rabbits.

These creatures can get in through vents, cracks, crevices and even the hole around your dryer hoses. Even calling in Rodent Control in Phoenix AZ, isn’t any guarantee that they sharp toothed, gruesome creatures will stay outside where they belong.

You Can’t Always Find Them

Like most horror movie monsters, rats are hard to find and sneak up on you with the quietness of Jason in a horror classic. You may see signs of these critters, but before you can catch one they are gone. Rats are tricky little rodents and even the experts have a hard time trapping one, much less an entire nest that is scampering around inside the walls of your home. Calling in Rodent Control in Phoenix AZ, when you first see signs of rodent invasions is important for this very reason.

They May Bite

Scientists once did a 22-year study that supposedly proved that rats will attack you, and they don’t even have to be cornered to do so. The study found that the most common time for a rat to bite someone was between midnight and 8am, during the time when people are sleeping peacefully in their beds. Whether this is true or not remains to be seen, but do you really want to take the chance? Rats need to be eradicated by proper rodent control measures.
