The Ever-growing Teeth of Rats
If you can hear rats chewing furtively in the middle of the night, they could be destroying more than your sleep. Due to their nature for chewing, they can cause extensive damage to your home.
Why do rats chew so much?
The four long front teeth of rats, called incisors, are highly specialized for gnawing. To ensure this capability, they will continue to grow throughout the life of a rat! As part of their physiology as well as to keep tooth length under control, rats must continuously gnaw and bite to wear teeth down.
How much damage can rats cause?
The anatomy of the upper jaw of a rat allows it to gnaw very effectively and forcefully, giving them the ability to cause an array of damage to your home and property.
Don't let rats eat you out of house and home. For safe, effective, clean rodent control, contact local professional pest controllers.
