RAT PEST CONTROL
A rat’s tail is often the part that makes most people squeamish, but offers several functions. It provides balance and stability, when rats need to perform a physical task and it regulates their body temperature, as it contains a rich blood supply close to the surface.
Due to their poor eyesight, rats rely heavily on their whiskers – believed to be as receptive as a human’s fingertips – to feel the world around them.
Rats may not have the best eyesight, but they have a well-developed sense of smell, taste and touch.
They also have an acute sense of hearing, frequently using ultrasound to communicate, which is especially sensitive to any sudden noise.
Rats are social animals, so if you see one rat then there are likely to be more nearby.
Rats have the ability to jump around three feet into the air, four feet horizontally and can fall from a height of up to 50 feet without getting injured.
They are also incredible climbers; brick walls, telephone poles, even legs!
