Rats are known to have lots of traits that serve in their favor. They have collapsible skeletons to help them fit through tight spaces, strong teeth to chew through your electrical wiring and the ability to reproduce rapidly to populate your home or office with their rodent offspring as fast as possible. Not to mention their incredible sense of smell to help them sniff out food in your kitchen. Together, all of these traits create a true pest.
