How fast will rats multiply once they are in the home?
Many people have absolutely no idea how long it takes to go from one rat to an infestation. They assume that it takes a while before rats can multiply. So they are not worried when they spot one or two.
Here is how the average Norwegian anticoagulant resistant rat behaves:
It produces between 5 and 10 babies in each litter, and it can have between 3 and 6 litters in a year. When food is plentyfull these numbers can go up. The newborn rats only need 10 weeks to reach sexual maturity. After which they start having litters of their own.
Now imagine that 2 or 3 rats get into your home. In a matter of weeks they can have multiplied to more than 20 rats, each capable of reproduction. In just 10 weeks these 20 can easily multiply to 60 or more.
Can you afford to take any chances?
It is very important to take action the moment you see a rat in your home or even suspect that they are there.
You may hear them scurrying around at night. You may see their droppings. Often you may notice that they have eaten through leftover food, wood and furniture. Keeping a cat is a good idea, but remember a cat can only do so much.
