If rats are found to be in or around your home, they can cause a lot of damage to the property. They never move alone, which means that if you see just one, many others are likely nearby. If they are not dealt with promptly without rat removal, before you know it they can reproduce and get to plague proportions.
Being nocturnal, they will usually only come out of their hiding spots at night scouring for foods in your pantry and storage areas. If they are spotted during the daytime, it means that there is more than a couple here and there, and you should call in rat control in quickly to avoid the infestation becoming more widespread.
Rats will consume or spoil your food, cover your kitchen top, floors and tabletops with droppings; and urinate everywhere in the process. These waste dropping rats are responsible for spread a whole host of diseases such as Leptospirosis, Hantavirus and bubonic plague. That’s why expert rat removal in Melbourne is so important, as densely populated areas make it easier for diseases like these to spread.

House rats can hurt you because not only do they carry a mean bite, they are also known to carry diseases and parasites harmful to human health. This can be spread from more than just biting, but also scratches and even contact with their fur or rat droppings. House rats can also cause property damage, such as by chewing through wires or insulation, that can cause a fire risk. Always contact a pest professional if you think you have a house rat infestation.
Rats, like us, have necessities and provided you have a source or food and a dark, sheltered area, your home can be an attractive place for a rat colony. Rats like to nest in warm and dark areas, including basements and storage areas.
Rats will not normally leave unless food and shelter are no longer available. We encourage you to reduce your open food sources as much as possible, but we also understand that it can be difficult, such as if you have pets that you need to feed. We encourage you to consider a professional rat exterminator that can keep the rats away long-term.
Yes, one rat can mean that there are more. Rats are quick to reproduce and often scurry in the night, so if you see a rat (particularly one in daylight), it often means that there are more that you have not yet discovered.

After this, alongside our professional advice, we encourage you to seal off any potential entry points and eliminate open food sources.
