3 common rats in Singapore.
To protect your home or business from rats, you need to learn about the behavior of this pest, take steps for prevention, and find effective treatment options should an infestation occur.
Rats are a fairly common type of rodent. These pests can grow to be anywhere from a few inches in length to up to 10 inches. Rats often live near places with food scraps such as dumpsters and garbage bins.
Although these pests can be found in the wild, they usually congregate in more populated areas like cities and towns.
While rats can live in a variety of environments, they tend to prefer warmer temperatures and live in areas near humans as they feed off of scraps of food and garbage.
Because of their resourceful nature, they are quite good at finding their way into homes and businesses throughout Singapore where they may have easier access to food and water.
Rats tend to travel in packs, you may likely have multiple rats in your home or business by the time you notice one.

Frequently Asked Questions.
How did I get rats?
Like many other types of pests, rats are looking for a place with shelter and food, particularly if rats have a mate with whom they are trying to nest. Rats usually make their way into homes and businesses through small gaps in doors or pipes, holes, or openings in the foundation or roof, or any other tiny entrance. If you have a large amount of trash sitting around, this may also attract rats to the area.
Our rat control experts at HEYMONSTER recommend you take steps as soon as possible to get rid of rats and implement rat prevention techniques. If not, you may be dealing with the problem for some time. Most wild rats live between two to three years. If adult rats decide to nest in your home or business, you will shortly be dealing with newborn rats as well.
What are the effects of rats in and around my home or business?
If you’ve ever run into a rat at your home or business, you know that feeling you experience. Most people are squeamish around rats. They project an image of uncleanliness and filth – even if the sighting happens in an area that’s clean. It can make you uncomfortable in your home. At a business, it can keep customers from coming into your facility or from ever coming back.
There are also worries about diseases that rats carry and can transfer to humans. Rodents are known to carry many harmful diseases that can easily be transmitted to humans. Rat-bite fever, Salmonella, and Murine Typhus are all examples of diseases that rats can be responsible for carrying and spreading. Typically, diseases are passed through their feces and urine, but if you come into direct contact with one of these rodents, the rats may even bite. Once you get rid of the rats, it’s important to sanitize all surfaces to reduce the chance of someone getting sick.
How do I prevent rats?
Once you’ve rid your home or business of an infestation, you must implement strict rat control methods to prevent this incident from happening again in the future. Have your home or business fully inspected for any holes or openings that may have allowed the rodents to enter your home by the pest control professionals at HEYMONSTER.
You should also enforce a greater level of sanitation to avoid attracting rats to your property in the first place. Any items that might be used as a rat nesting material like piles of leaves or mulch should be removed from the property as soon as possible.
