As the teeth of rodents continue to grow over their lifetime, they need to gnaw on hard substances such as lead and plastic pipes, insulation material and electric wiring. This habit increases the risk of short circuits and fires.
Rats are responsible for contamination. One single rat equals more than 25000 droppings per year, which contain allergens that can cause acute allergic reactions.Rats are common in Indian cities and metropolitans and the first priority to prevent a rat infestation is to proof your home. Young rats can get through holes less than 1cm in diameter. So it is important to seal holes or fit bristle strip around doors.
Ultrasonic repellers emit sound waves that are uncomfortable for rats but not audible to humans. These may help deter rats from entering a home in the first place, but we do not recommend them for existing infestations as rats can quickly acclimatise to the ultrasonic sound. It is important not to attract rats with food – store food in plastic or metal containers - and regularly clean under cookers and refrigerators.
