Rat control is important to avoid a number of serious diseases, which rats are known to transmit. There are nearly a dozen diseases directly linked to rats and the ever prevalent disease spread by rats in Brunei is Leptospirosis. Besides that, rats also carry secondary pest in their fur such as fleas, mites and ticks.
Rats can be very persistent and if they manage to gain access into your home or business premises they can spread these diseases, cause considerable damage and contaminate food.
