How Rat Infestation Can Affect Transportation Business Losses

A litter of 10 baby rats and their mother were found under a seat in the business class section of an airline in China during an inspection. Even though the rats were tested to be free of infections, the presence of the rats in the cabin was enough to tarnish the reputation of the airline company.

Besides being associated with the transmission of many harmful diseases like Salmonella and Leptospirosis, rats are extremely destructive in nature and have known to cause huge damages to businesses with their teeth. Rats are born with a set of strong teeth that allows them to chew through plastic, glass, leather and wire. Over the years, businesses have also suffered huge losses from fire accidents that happened when rats chewed on the electrical wire.

Effective rat control begins with prevention and blockage of all possible entry points, such as the the drainage system and sewers. In the event of an infestation, it is advisable to consult a professional pest control instead of solving the infestation yourself. Although various rodenticides and baits are easily available in the market, it does not prove to be effective in the event of an infestation.
