Can a rat spread bed bugs?

A rat has gotten into the house and chewed thru the carpet down to the hard wood floor to get under my sons bedroom door. I'm in the process of preparing his room to be treated for bed bugs. This rat has been all over his room pooping on everything, all over bedding, and then it runs back out of his room and into his grandmothers closet. Can this rat be spreading bed bugs to my entire house? This rat is smart and have tried everything to catch it. I even have a T-Rex trap.


It is not impossible for rats to spread disease and pests throughout the home. For the rat, we would recommend using the T1 Rat Disposable Rat Bait Station. It can be used indoors and outdoors in the areas where the rat normally resides.
