If you’ve got a massive rat infestation, it can be stressful to try and keep it at bay. The key to controlling rats, is to stop them before they start to reproduce. The sooner you can identify and eliminate the problem, the less damage they’ll cause to your home, and the less likely you’ll catch a disease from them.
How to Avoid Them
If you can take proactive steps to keep your home and family safe, it could save you hundreds of dollars’ worth in the future. At Critter Control® Tampa, we’ve come up with a few proven methods to help keep rats out of your home before they can ruin it.
- Trap them– Trapping rats is all about placement. Since rats are smart and have a good sense of their surroundings, they can sense when a trap is nearby. For successful traps, you need to place as many as you can in high-traffic areas.
- Sealing it up– Rats can enter your home through holes smaller than you might think. If you already have rats in your home, prevent more from entering by sealing up even the smallest holes around your house. Check your roof, your soffits, or any other weak spots in or around your home for entry points.
- Poison– You should never use poison on your own. It could result in the death of your child or pet if used improperly. Only a trained professional with all of the proper tools can use poison to control rats in your home.
