Hogarth's Pest Control specializes in all types of industries, residential and commercial.
Rats are medium-size rodents with long tails, sometimes reaching up to 13 inches in length from tail to nose! Depending on the breed, they are brown to grey in color, and their tails are bald. These rodents are an issue in cities all over the world; especially in large cities such as New York or Chicago, where they often have trouble controlling them.
Rats are great swimmers and climbers, can chew through metal, burrow, have fast reproduction rates, and are extremely intelligent. They are vectors for over 35 diseases which they can spread to humans and other animals. These diseases can be spread to humans through handling of both live or dead rodents, inhalation or direct contact with feces, urine, or saliva from bites. Their urine is responsible for the spread of leptospirosis, which can result in liver and kidney damage.
