Norway rats are an invading species that can get inside your home in Hawaii. Believe us, you don’t want these rats roaming around wreaking havoc in your living space. Most people will shriek with fear or shudder to think there are rats nearby.

We can all agree that no one wants to see a rat when they visit a business. It doesn't matter the size business, the services they offer, or the friendliness of the staff.
