Arguably the least favoured for rodents, rats have been plaguing mankind for centuries. These critters have survived numerous attempts to eradicate them throughout history and seem to be the one true species that is ‘extinction-proof.’
The Rats Have Come… So Many of Them!
For North York’s citizens, the rodents are a very real and serious problem as they are currently facing the consequences of a growing rat population. The intense rat infestation is a problem that extends throughout Toronto as authorities are battling growing populations in other cities as well.
The rodents are wreaking havoc on the lives of citizens, damaging homes and property, harboring diseases and disturbing the peace with terrible sounding screeches, especially at night.
The animals are quite destructive, chewing through building materials, furniture, and clothing among other things. And they are quite intimidating for many. They are larger than typical rats (urban rodents tend to be larger than their rural counterparts) and unlike the typical rats, are not shy during the daytime.
In addition to being a nuisance, the rat infestation presents a real threat to the health and well-being of North Yorks residents. Leptospirosis and other diseases loom wherever rats are found and some of these diseases can be deadly.
Additionally, it can be quite annoying, time-consuming and tiring to have to constantly sanitize everything in order to ensure that your family does not pick up anything rats may have deposited on any of the many surfaces in your home. Naturally, therefore, North York animal services have become more important and busy lately.
