Keep Rats Out with a Quality Professional Pest Control Service
Norway rats are some of the best diggers in the world. Whether you have a beautiful garden, a lawn that could use a bit more attention, or really thick shrubbery, you may have unknowingly attracted rats in the house, and that could lead to pretty serious problems. How can you deal with the rats you have and keep rats out in the future? These tips can help.
Rat Pest Control – Best Left to the Professionals
If you think you have a rat problem, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. Rodent pest control is complicated, and it’s not as easy as just setting out traps to get rid of rats. Instead, rat removal can be a complex, long process. If you suspect rat problems in your home, watch for signs like droppings, gnaw marks, or even grease stains. Obviously a telltale sign is if you actually see a rat in your house.
If you haven’t had a problem with Norway rats, consider yourself lucky. There are several things you can do to make that your reality well into the future as well.
First, make sure you’ve properly sealed your home. You don’t want to have any gaps under your doors. If you have holes where utility or plumbing lines come into the house, be sure to seal those, too. Also, make certain your wall and foundation vents are maintained and sealed properly. Beyond that, make certain you clean up any food sources Norway rats might have. That means keeping your kitchen spotless and your garbage cans well covered. In the yard, you’ll want to clean up any bird seed that accumulates at the base of bird feeders and keep pet feces out of your yard.
