The Do’s & “Ro-Don’t’s”
Our main rat pest control advice is simple. The main step you can take is ‘prevention’ in order to ‘safeguard’ your home or business.
Here are some more sure fire ways to deter rats from your property:
- Make sure any entry points into your house such as chimneys or vents have screens over them.
- Seal all cracks or holes on the outside of your buildings. Places such as gaps around pipes.This is necessary in order to prevent rats from entering the building. Rats only need a gap of 15mm to gain entry to any building.
- Eradicate potential nesting sites by ensuring your garden is tidy and clean in all seasons.
- Keep shrubbery clipped and cut back from the house.
- Keep outdoor rubbish in secure bins to avoid attracting rats.
- Ammonia is known and great repelling agent which is effective when used against rodents.
Ensure your property remains rodent free and mix 2 cups of Ammonia with 200 ml of water. Add 2-3 spoons of detergent. Proceed by placing containers filled with this mixture in locations where rats are found.
- Keep all your food in sturdy containers with tightly fitting lids to prevent rats from gaining access to your food.
- Ensure you clean up pet food or excess bird seeds to as they are potential food sources for rats.
How to Recognize the Signs of a Rat Pest Problem
Our main rat pest control advice is:
Catch Them Early
It is important to identify a rat infestation as early as possible in order to prevent the infestation from growing.
Stay alert and know what signs should raise alarm bells.
Keep your eyes peeled for tell tail signs such as:
- rat footprints
- teeth marks
- small holes in the floor or wall
- urine or hair
Moreover, pay extra attention to your pets behaviour. Pets often begin to act unusually when they smell rodents in the house. They will be extremely alert, bark, or paw/sniff at spaces beneath refrigerators, stoves, or furniture.
Listen out for scratching noises in your attic, ceiling or walls – rats are nocturnal so if you hear scratching or scrapping around the house in the night it could be a rat infestation.
A foul smell around the house can also be a clear sign of rats.
So if you see, hear or smell a rat, it’s time for combat – call in the cavalry and contact pest control professionals.
If you suspect you have a rat infestation, contact Avon Pest Control for conscientious, efficient, environmentally friendly service in ridding you of rodents.
