Steps to Keep Rats Out of Your House
Rodents, in particular rats, are closely linked to people. That’s because a home or apartment can provide them with the things they need to most thrive. So, what can you do to keep them away? At Scott’s Turf and Pest Control, a pest control company in Durham, NC, we are asked about this issue a lot. To help, here are 8 steps to take to keep rats out of your house.
1.) Fill holes, cracks and gaps
Rats can slip through holes the size of a quarter. Check your home for any opening that size and larger. Seal them up with the proper materials including wool, hardware cloth, caulk, cement, and plaster. You can also weatherstrip doors and windows if there are large cracks.
2.) Don’t feed them
3.) Remove their habitat
4.) Trim trees, shrubs and limbs back four feet from your home
5.) Set traps inside
6.) Use baits and poisons outside
7.) Check your neighborhood
8.) Call the pros
