Pest Control Rats – how to get rid of rats: use an exterminator
Rat pest control is one of our most requested services. The most common question asked of us is “how to rid of rats in our home?”
These rodents are probably the nastiest pests you could ever encounter in your home. Attracted by the warm, dry, and relatively safe environment of our houses – not to mention the easy access to food and water – rats are notoriously tricky to get rid of safely.
Apart from the general annoyance of having rats in your home, crawling through your kitchen cupboard, gnawing holes through packets of food and garbage bags, rats carry an entire host of bacteria, parasites and diseases.
Eating food or drinking water contaminated by rats will cause salmonellosis, and any contact with rat urine or faeces (often the first and most obvious sign you have a rat infestation) can cause leptospirosis, which results in liver and kidney damage.
Being bitten or scratched by a rat, or even touching a dead rat can give you a nasty case of rat-bite fever. Rats also carry fleas, well known for spreading bubonic plague.
Simply by being in your home, rats pose a major health risk to you, your family and your pets. So it’s safe to say, if you have a rat problem, you need to get it sorted today!
Rat Pest Control – How To Get Rid Of Rats The Best Way
One of the problems with getting rid of rats safely is all the common methods out there, including poisons and traps, make the job of safeguarding your home particularly unpleasant.
For instance, because rat poisons are slow acting, rats will often crawl into inaccessible parts of your home to die, where they will decay and stink up your home, contaminating it further. Another factor to consider is over the counter rat poisons, although effective, are harmful to children, pets and wildlife.
Your next best option is probably to use traps, and there are two options to consider when choosing rat traps. First, you could go the traditional route and get traps that simply kill the rats (although the clean up afterwards is never pleasant).
Alternatively, you could bait reusable traps, catch the rats alive and either remove them from your property or exterminate them in some other way. When using traps, whichever option you choose, we recommend you set at least a dozen traps in and around your home to make sure get the job done properly.
There is of course another option, which is completely hassle, stress, and mess free: call in the professionals.
