They're reputations are never going to get over that whole 'Black Plague' incident.
But it wasn’t their fault! It was the fleas ON the rats that caused the plague. Ok fine – we can get rid of the fleas too!
The first steps for Rat control are
- Sanitation (that’s a big one because they are really filthy!)
- Inspection; how are they getting in and what can be done about it.
- Trapping; getting them out of there!
- Exclusion; keeping the little cridders out for good.
