4 Reasons Why Rats Are Always In Your House by 24hoursreporter: 12:00pm On Jan 16, 2019
Rat infestation is one of the problems people face in their home today. While some people have a phobia for rat (musophobia), they are also responsible for the transmission of several diseases.

Furthermore, rats and other rodents are what you should ensure that they don’t start nesting in your house. This is due to the fact that their feeding habits are destructive. And the way they feed can definitely compromise your building structure.

People are often surprised when they see rats in their house, especially when they are very careful about this. Anyway, in this article, you will learn what causes rats to come into your house and how to get rid of rats in your house easily.

4 Reasons Why Rats Are Always In Your House


#1. Poor Hygiene


Poor hygiene is one of the reasons why rats are always in your house. It is naturally for rats to infest a house with very poor hygiene.

When the sanitation level of your house is poor, rats will have easy access to food and water. This will encourage them to start nesting in your house.

If this continues for a while without you taking action, you will be having a plague of rats in your home in no time.

Ordinarily, rats are scavengers constantly searching for food and safe place for nesting. So, whenever you see a massive infestation of rats in your house, check your hygiene.

#2. Unsealed Cracks Or Holes


When there is unsealed cracks or holes in your around your house, rats can easily infest. As I said, rats are always searching for a good nesting site for their young ones (pups).

So, if there are unsealed cracks or holes in your house, rats will definitely optimize the opportunity and infest your homes.

#3. Unused Furniture, Electronics and Any Other Thing That Can Act As Shelter


When you have unused furniture, electronics and any other appliance or device that you refuse to discard, you are inviting rats to your home. This is because these things are a perfect nesting site for their pups.

#4. Decreased Temperature


When the temperature is low, outdoors are always too cold for these rodents to cope. Therefore, they will start seeking shelters in homes to keep themselves warm.

This is why rats infestation is common during raining seasons or harmattan.
Signs That They Are Rats In Your House
There are several signs to know that there are rats in your house. Some of these signs are;

a. Seeing them physically running around your house. This can be very annoying.

b. Sometimes, you can see their droppings around the house

c. Their noise is also one of the signs that you have rats in your house. It could be noise of them running within the wall, ceiling. Also, the noise could be gnawing, scraping or squealing sound.

d. You can see some of the things that they damage in your house.

Somewhere called Aso Rock in Nigeria is heavily "infested" by rats despite adequate sanitation in place. Any logical reason(s) for that, OP?

Rat infestation is the worst thing that can happen to you. So annoying.
U are so fvcking wrong...
The worst is bedbug infestation... U will be driven mad prematurely,always waking up at odd hours, eyes squinting,nose quivering,skin itching,all so u could have a go at these mudafuvking pests who suck ur blood sneakily and disappear so frustratingly. U crush one and even though u feel a sense of accomplishment,the stench is enough to make you gag,n there are about a 1000 more sneaking peeks at you somewhere somehow....
You rush and buy Baygon,Raid or whateverdafuq the pesticide is called,flit the shiit outta your room and wait outside for a while singing lullabies under your breath. Poor thing!!! You don't know that shiit don't work,a lesson you learn that very night!!!
The disgrace dey give u when sighted on ur clothes or bag or shoe can never be gauged. Disgust,shame and outright horror greet u from all eyes and more than once,you will feel the urge to commit suicide!!!!

And the worst part is,those fvckers are Hermaphrodites,they don't need a male or female to reproduce,they got everything they need to fvck u up and make new babies and ur horror continues.


So having rats is bliss compared to bedbug...they make life a literal hell for you
