Rat control is important in order to avoid a number of serious diseases, which rats are known to transmit. The Center for Disease Control lists nearly a dozen diseases directly linked to rats.
Rats can be very persistent and if they manage to gain access into your home or business they can spread these diseases, cause considerable damage and contaminate food.
Even having rats in the yard and outside can present a tremendous risk, particularly since those areas are visited by children and pets.
