Cover any holes

Rodents will get inside your home via outside holes and openings, so cover them well with some steel wool, metal kick plates, caulk, or concrete.

If you’re uncertain how rodents could be entering your home, don’t hesitate to ask the rat control specialists at AAAC Wildlife Removal to examine the site and educate you on the potential causes.

De-clutter and clean

Decrease the mess around your home to eliminate hiding spots and make it easier to find the rats.

Eliminate potential food sources

Rodents are ingenious when it comes to finding food. They will discover things to eat around your property, so you must be determined to stop them.

  • Cover all trash cans properly.
  • Pick up produce from gardens, trees, etc. when they ripen.
  • Feed pets outside during the daytime, and never leave additional food anywhere.
  • Never store any pet food anywhere without making sure it is Rat-proofed in a sealed container.

Remove all their natural surrounding

  • Try not to give these vermin a place to live.
  • Remove junk and litter such as old vehicles, machines and so on from your property.
  • If you have any piles of wood or timber, try storing those away from your house if possible
  • Eliminate dense vegetation, as rodents consider this is an excellent hiding spot.

Set traps inside

There are a few financially affordable traps to catch rodents inside your home that are not hazardous to pets and kids. For instance, live traps.

Use traps and toxic substances outside: Poisonous traps and toxic substances should be utilized outside the home.

Rodents can spread toxic substances inside your home, making it hazardous for everyone. Continuously check up on your traps after they’ve been set.

Place the trap away from places where pets or children can find it.

Check all areas

Odds are, you aren’t the only one dealing with a rat issue. Ask your neighbors to check for rodent movement and see if you can manage the problem together.

If you take care of a rat problem, but your neighbor does not, it wont be long before you see them again.

Contact AAAC Wildlife Removal: Regardless of whether you’re managing a nuisance issue or are hoping to prevent one, it’s significant that you realize who to contact.
