    Rat Infestation Prevention: Strategies to Control Rat Populations

    Addressing rodent problems swiftly is crucial, especially when dealing with rats. These pests can reproduce quickly, leading to significant infestations that are tough to manage. Rats can infiltrate homes through tiny openings, contaminating food in your kitchen pantry and other storage areas. Their habit of gnawing on wood and even electrical wiring poses serious structural and fire hazards.

    To deter rats, you must eliminate their potential food sources which may cause rat infestation. Clean up all food crumbs around your home. Keep your floors swept clean. Store food in containers that rats cannot easily chew through. Take out your kitchen trash as soon as it’s full or whenever you have smelly food inside your trash can. Keep a tight-fitting lid over your kitchen garbage to prevent rats from accessing it. You should also seal off any holes you find in your home. Rats can easily locate any existing small holes and gnaw on them to widen the holes and gain entry to a home. They can also enter a home through vents.

    Homeowners sometimes attempt to eliminate a rodent infestation by using certain smells. Some homeowners have had success by using peppermint, ammonia, vinegar and coffee grounds to deter rats. However, you will need to replenish and respray these odors if you want them to be effective against rats.

    When to Call Professional Exterminators for Rat Removal in Your Home

    While some homeowners try to handle these pest issues alone, the risk of overlooking critical entry points is high. DIY methods like special poison, bait stations, or rat traps can be hazardous to untrained individuals and non-targeted species. Therefore, employing professional pest control technicians is highly advisable for effective and safe rodent extermination. Our skilled rodent exterminator team is trained to detect signs of rodent activity, identify their entry points, and implement robust rodent exclusion strategies.

    Rat Traps to Control Rats: Key to Exterminator’s Pest Control Process

    There are several types of rat traps commonly used to control rat populations. Some of the most common rat trap types include:

    Snap Traps

    These are the traditional wooden or a plastic trap with a spring-loaded mechanism. When the rat triggers the trap by touching the bait, a metal bar snaps shut, quickly killing the rodent.

    Electronic Rat Traps

    These traps deliver an electric shock to the rat when it enters the trap. They are designed to be humane and kill the rodent quickly.

    Glue Traps

    Glue trap consists of a sticky adhesive surface that captures rats when they walk onto it. These traps are non-lethal but require disposal of the trapped rodent.

    Live Traps

    Live trapping are designed to capture rats alive so they can be released elsewhere. They are typically cage-like structures with a one-way entry mechanism.

    Bucket Traps

    These DIY traps involve placing a ramp leading to a bucket filled with water. A floating platform in the bucket is baited, and when the rat steps on it, it falls into the water and drowns.

    Multi-Catch Trap

    These traps are designed to capture multiple rats without resetting the trap after each catch. They are often used in commercial settings.
