Home Rat Control

Black Rat (Rattus rattus)

Rats are one of the most problematic household pests. A rat infestation in the immediate vicinity of a house or garden is a danger for the health of humans. 

Rats spread diseases (such as Hantavirus & Salmonella), contaminate food supplies and inflict damage to cables and electrical equipment. Rats multiply at breakneck speed, making it extremely difficult to control infestations without professional help.

Are you concerned about rat problems in your home? Ehrlich Pest Control technicians are trained to identify all signs of rat activity within and around structures.
