America’s War on Rats

FAIRFAX, Va. (November 21, 2013) – From Boston to Seattle, rats are out and about. A warmer-than-average winter in 2012 is a likely contributor to the high population this fall, and construction in cities is ousting these pests from their homes in sewers and subways.

Homeowners should be aware that rats can carry disease and cause structural damage as well as damage to electrical wires, so it is important to pest-proof homes prevent any individuals from nesting inside.
