Where in the house rats are most likely to hide says pest control expert 'The Rat Man'.
Dan goes on to say, ‘one place I went to they had chewed through the ceiling, through all the cupboards, the floors. I’d estimate there were about 500 droppings. In every drawer, including the cutlery drawers.’
Our hearts are racing at even the thought, imagine the germs! No amount of ‘Hinching’ will scrub that memory from your mind.
So why do they come inside? What rats want are food, water and shelter. These flexible creatures can climb through a 2cm hole because they can contort their body to do so. So with any tempting opportunity we give them, they might invite themselves inside.
How to get rid of rats
1. Change the bins
What could be more tempting than a bin full of ‘delicous’ waste for a rat to feast on. Given their contortionist skills even the slightest gap on a bin can feel like an open invitation. Weight the lid down.
2. Empty water bowls
The average adult male rat is said to drink up to 60ml of water a day, so they’re always on the look out for the next watering hole. Pet bowls are a welcome invitation to sip from. Whether indoors or outside,
3. Clean up tempting food waste
After a barbecue or family party, make sure your garden is free of food. If you have a get-together on your decking, thoroughly clean the decking so that no sauces or dropped food remain which could entice rodents and other critters. Remember rats,
4. Use humane traps to deal with the issue
Many of us don’t like the idea of trapping pests, but sometimes, a humane, non-lethal trap method can solve the situation.
Rats has a super highly sensitive sense of smell, so there are friendly ways to put them off entering your home or garden by using natural scents.
5. Block off your decked area
As we mentioned, shelter is something unwanted animals will always look for, so ensure that your garden is not offering a place for pests. Rats won’t be able to make a home under your decked areas if they can’t get in to begin with.
