What makes rats and rodents pests?
Rat and rodents are not only a big problem for Australian homeowners but also for business owners, especially those who are in restaurant or food industry. The reasons why rats and rodents are considered as pests are numerous. Some of them are:
Disease carriers: rats are known for carrying a large number of diseases and some among them can badly affect human health. One disease coming from rats that threatens human health is plague. This disease actually did cause an epidemic called Black Death decades ago.
Food consumption and contamination: rodents are dangerous for our living areas due to their eating habit. They contaminate our food by leaving their excrement, urine and hair and also destroy the food containers.
Physical damage: as rodents teeth keep growing constantly, they need to gnaw to stop them from growing to long. Their gnawing thus will cause physical damage to your furnitures and equipments.
