Rat Control Treatments

COMMON RAT TYPES

ROOF RAT (BLACK RAT)

Nests in attics, wall voids, hollow trees. Typically enters the home from trees or power lines. Prefers fruit, but will eat all kinds of foods. Prefers to travel off the ground.

NORWAY RAT (SEWER RAT)

Digs burrows along foundations and under debris piles, often found in basements. Can enter homes through toilet pipes. Prefers meat and fish, but will eat anything. Very aggressive, strong burrower and an excellent swimmer.

WOOD RAT

Prefer to not live near humans. Usually, build their nests on the ground in wooded areas. Nocturnal and mainly vegetarian –  eating plants, woodland fruits, and they especially like acorns.

FOOD CONTAMINATION

Food contamination by their urine and faeces is one of the major problems humans face with rats. Rats contaminate huge percentages of agricultural produce each year and have been known to contaminate food stuffs such as popcorn.

DISEASES

Rats are enormous carriers of many different diseases, and it has been reported that rats bite more than fifteen thousand people per year involving very young, old or incapacitated. Some of the diseases caused by rats are bubonic plague, salmonella, leptospirosis, hantavirus and tularemia.

TREATMENT PREPARATION

Before you begin to treat for rats, Sydney’s Best Pest Control recommends:

  • Ensure all food is stored securely in refrigerators, freezers and sealed containers or jars
  • Repair any holes in walls and fill gaps that exist in flooring, doors or windows
  • Clean, sweep and vacuum the house ahead of the treatment and do this regularly to aid ongoing control
  • Eliminate any unnecessary cardboard, paper or packaging that rats can use for making nests
  • Make notes on where rats are seen and share these details with your pest control technician
