You may not want rats in your home for many reasons, including the greasy trails they leave as they travel, the damage to your electrical system, and the disease that often follows rodents.

The aesthetic and relaxing atmosphere may attract you or family members to your home, but rats are the uninvited guests you never want to appeal to.
To prevent them from building a nest in your home, don’t offer them these necessities:
- Food: Rats will eat anything available to them, so opening garbage cans or leftovers on the counter can attract rodents. It’s essential to store food in glass instead of their original thin plastics or cardboard that are easy for mice to chew through.
- Shelter: Rats will search for warmth and protection during the winter. Look out for nesting around or inside the HVAC system that offers your home heat. Also, look for cracks or crevices outside your home that rats can enter through.
- Open garbage cans: Available garbage cans provide a buffet for these pests. Keep all trash and dumpsters sealed outside the home and regularly empty the inside trash can.
- Water leaks: If pipes, faucets, or drains begin to leak, this provides an accessible water source for rats, so it’s crucial to resolve this issue and avoid attracting rodents quickly.
- Clutter: Nesting materials are critical to providing shelter and protection from larger animals that may hunt rodents. Attics, sheds, garages, and basements should be cleaned and cleared regularly to prevent rats from collecting nesting material.
There are three significant ways to keep rodents out of your home where they don’t belong. As a homeowner, you can begin to store food in thick plastic or glass so they can’t gnaw through packaging. Our team will bait and trap mice and rats so they cannot create a family in your home.
What are some common signs of a rodent infestation?
Common signs of rodent infestation include:
- Gnaw marks on surfaces
- Nests made of shredded materials
- Scampering noises in walls or ceilings
- Chewed wires or insulation
- Sightings of live or dead rodents
We can identify and seal all potential entry points as a preventative measure. Holes as small as a quarter can allow these pests to enter your home. You can fill these holes using wire wool because they are hard for rats to chew. Frequently check the perimeter of your home for holes throughout the year and seal them quickly to prevent these pests.
