Hearing scratching or gnawing at night on your roof? Rat and Mice Pest Control Canberra is a problem that can quickly get out of control quickly if left untreated.
Let me tell you a few facts about the common brown rat that most likely you did not know and will alarm you.
Reproduction and life cycle
The brown rat can breed throughout the year if conditions are suitable, with a female producing up to five litters a year gestation period is only 21 days, and litters can number up to 14, although seven is common.
With the short gestation period, you can see how easily that you can have an infestation in virtually no time at all and if the breeding cycle is not broken the rats will take over your home!
Not only is this a problem but if their nest is in the roof void the rats will gnaw through electrical wiring whilst sharpening their teeth.
The rats reach sexual maturity in about five weeks. Under ideal conditions (for the rat), this means that the population of females could increase by a factor of three and a half (half a litter of 7) in 8 weeks (5 weeks for sexual maturity and 3 weeks of gestation), corresponding to a population growing by a factor of 10 in just 15 weeks. As a result, the population can grow from 2 to 15 000 in a year.
