Rats are horrible animals to have in your home. They make a mess wherever they are and carry a great many diseases that can be hazardous to you, your family, and your pets. This is a danger to you as rats have been carriers of some very serious illnesses throughout history. This is why, if you have one in your home, you must do all you can to rid yourself of the problem.



If you are a person who has a rat in your home you are justifiably worried that there may be several more. These animals usually live in large colonies, meaning that one rat is likely 10 or more. It can even be hundreds, depending upon the space available in your home and the time that they have lived there. It is understandable that you would be quite worried.

You want to get rid of these rodents, but you have to wonder what is the best solution. If there are just one or two of the rats then you may be able to do this on your own, but if you have more you are considering whether hiring a pest control service is the way to go. There are some clear reasons to do so.

If you get right down to it, you are not going to be able to get rid of 10 or 20 rats on your own. At least this is very unlikely. You would need to either buy a series of traps or resort to some kind of poison bait to dispose of them. The traps will likely work for you, but they may take time before you rid yourself of all the rats, and then it is just a question of whether you feel you can wait that long or not.

Poisons can be quite effective, but if you have a bunch of rats dying around your home, the cleanup may not be all you were hoping for. This may make for a battlefield of rat death around your home, and if finding the rats is a challenge then you may have dying rats all over. This may make it seem like hiring a pest control agent is the best option, but you need to consider that their primary means to rid a home of rats is to poison them as well. They are quite good at doing this, but they are not going to do the cleanup for you, so it will be your obligation to find them and dispose of the rats.
