The key to keeping your home from a rat infestation is early detection. ratDon’t ignore the signs if you see them. Contact a professional like the ones at Critter Control® Cape Cod. If you happen to suspect a rat infestation in your home, there are several things you may consider for rat control in the meantime. Consider the following techniques:

  1. Clean, clean, clean: The main attraction for rats is food and nesting places. Making sure that all food is properly stored is key to discouraging rats to enter your home. If you have areas with clutter, organize these areas to be neater. Keep all your food in air tight containers and clean up any crumbs or spills you may have.
  2. Home-made remedies: A home-made remedy doesn’t contain the harsh toxins that over-the-counter poisons do. Remedies such as mothballs, peppermint oil, and ammonia normally repel rats very well.
  3. Traps: There are a variety of rat traps available from local stores. While these may remove a rat, if the animal is alive, you stand the chance of getting bitten. And there is always a risk of catching a disease or illness from touching a rat, whether it is dead or alive.

The methods mentioned above may give you temporary relief from rat infestation. One thing to keep in mind is that you may have inadvertently missed an entrance way. Here is where Critter Control® comes in.
