Rats are baby-making machines
Winning the war on rats is far from an easy battle, to say the least. Truth is, wherever humans go, rats are sure to follow. Without a second thought, they gladly take up residence in our White Rock neighbourhoods and homes. And in return? They poison our food, bite our babies, spread diseases, cause property damage, and occasionally, pop up out of our toilets. If that wasn’t bad enough, rats have a mind-blowingly high birth rate.
Believe it or not, one pair of rats can produce over 150 million descendants in a single year. Yup, you read that correctly—150 million rats, each and every year! How can that possibly add up? Rats are sexually mature after only 3 months. The females give birth to approximately six rat pups a litter, six times a year. Another equally disturbing fact is that female rats ovulate every four hours, copulating dozens of times a day. You don’t need your calculator to realize how quickly the rat population can swell. Left unchecked, your home would be overrun by rats in an extremely short period of time, making rat control White Rock measures a must.
