So, you’ve found a rat rummaging through your trash bin outside. You threw something at it but ran towards your kitchen door instead.
There’s a good brand of rat poison in your mind and made a mental note to set that up soon.
But, before you spend an hour or less fixing doses of rat poison concealed in delicious treats, have you ever considered where they actually retreat once a rat starts to feel the effects of the poison?
Have you realized that they could, at any moment, literally drop dead inside your cabinet? Or cupboard?
Rat poisons seem to be truly a great way to get rid of rats immediately. They work, no doubt.
But the last thing you will ever want to deal with is the discovery of decomposing rats and the putrid smell that goes with it.
At the first sign of rat infestation, check for areas that have holes. Checking chewed crevices will have you know what else is there. You might stumble upon stuff and food. If these aren’t checked right away this will only make rats take advantage of the space for their activities.
Cover them up first with hardware cloth, or a small piece of thick wood so that they don’t come back. If infestations persist, then you’re in for a bigger problem: these pests didn’t entirely go away and might have found another area in your house for them to reside.
Getting rid of pests can be difficult especially if you have little know-how in it.
Your best bet is hiring a team of rat control specialists. Not only they are knowledgable about pests in general —- you can be sure the methods and tools they use are highly efficient in keeping your home free of pests and worries.
Remember that rats are vectors of diseases, and it’s best you avoid having a single one in your house!
