Rats can contaminate or destroy human food. Because rats are prolific breeders, rodent control measures must include the elimination of food, water and spaces necessary for them to carry on the breeding process.

1-800-222-1222 is the telephone number for every poison center in the United States. This number is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to talk to a poison expert, ask questions about a poison or about poison prevention, or call in the case of a poison emergency.
1-800-222-1222 is the the national telephone number for poison emergencies. It connects to a network of 57 poison centers around the country. Calls will be routed according to the area code and exchange of the phone number from which the call is placed. Depending on the phone carrier, cell phone users may reach either the poison center in the area where they are located when placing the call, or in the cell phone area code. Either poison center can assist.
Callers who need local assistance but reach the poison center back home, can ask the the "at home" poison center to coordinate with the poison center at their current location.
