Rat Exterminator Winnipeg
Living with rats in your home can be a nightmarish experience. The constant skittering that seems to come from all directions at once, the scratching from the inside of your walls, the gleam on eyes in the dark as they scurry quickly past your feet. When you see one rat, there’s probably a whole family living in your home; they reproduce quickly, and they have no problems hiding in tight spaces. Don’t let these pests control your life; call Gilles Lambert Pest Control, and we’ll take care of your rat problem, while giving you techniques to stop them from coming back in the future.
Rats have been a problem for humans since time immemorial. There’s a common trope about rats causing the Black Plague; in India, every 50 years, there’s a “rat flood” where rats swarm from bamboo forests and cause famine, eating all the foodstuffs around. These two events are perfect examples of the three biggest problems with the pests: they reproduce quickly, they eat anything they can get their teeth on, and they carry tons of infectious diseases. Those factors make rats incredibly problematic; they can cause you and your family to become ill, and if you don’t get rid of them quickly, there’s more and more of them to eat your food.
Rats might not eat all of your food, but it’s likely they’ll contaminate it all. Rats taint substantially more food than they can eat, with their feces, fur and saliva. They can carry with them a wide variety of diseases, including hantavirus, which is deadly in many cases. Should you see foodstuffs that have been contaminated by rats, throw out those foods; seal away your remaining food in rodent-proof containers, and do the same with your garbage.
Managing a rat infestation without professional help is incredibly difficult; these critters are incredibly intelligent, and will be reluctant to investigate any traps that have been placed in the home. Perhaps this is because of their long term association with humans, or because of natural fearfulness; either way, many a baited trap goes untouched when rats are certain there are other, safer methods of obtaining food. Rat poisons and other extermination tools can also be dangerous to humans if not handled properly, and are especially dangerous to children and animals.
