Are rats damaging to my home?

YES…rats are notorious gnawer’s. They chew materials constantly in order to keep their incisor’s, which are constantly growing, at an optimal length. So in actual fact, the “SCRATCHING” that many clients hear in the walls and roof is actually the rats gnawing on the frame or structure of your home. Some even find the insulation and copper wire within your electrical circuits very useful and irresistible for wearing down their teeth. In some instances they have even started house fires by shorting out mains power and starting the fire. This has been extremely reduced with the introduction of “SAFETY SWITCHES” to homes, but now results in the cables being chewed more as the circuits just break and turn off without harming the animal, so it just keeps chewing. This results in power, and in particular, lighting issues within your home.
