  • Rats sense of taste is excellent, and they can detect some contaminants in their food at levels as low as 0.5 parts per million.
  • Rats constantly explore and learn about their environment, memorizing the locations of pathways, obstacles, food and water, shelter, and other elements in their domain.
  • Rats can emit 8,000lbs of pressure per square inch with their jaws & teeth.
  • Rats can easily gnaw through wood, iron, lead, concrete, and many other substrates.
  • Rats can drop 50 feet without being seriously injured.
  • Rats can jump from a flat surface up to 36 inches vertically and as far as 48 inches horizontally.
