How to get rid of rats in my home!
How to get rid of rats in my home! South East Queensland is plagued by rats and mice. It is up to every home to manage rat and mice numbers. Diseases spread by rats are dangerous. Regular baiting, trapping and rodent proofing is recommended.
Firstly, rats need food and water. Therefore decreasing their access to food sources is essential. Problem areas can be where pets are fed and how pet food is stored. Many people feed pets in the laundry or on the verandah. After feeding pets it is wise to clean up all spilt food and store it in a strong, rat proof container. Compost bins need to be rat proof also, as long as air can enter the bin it will still compost properly.
The storage of foods for human consumption in rat proof containers is essential for obvious health reasons.
How to get rid of rats?
Firstly, manage access to food. Next, check roof void regularly for fresh droppings . If fresh dropping are found place baits or traps in the roof void. If you are managing your rat problem yourself then trapping rats in the garden is highly reccommended over baitng for safety reasons. A pest control professional has child and pet proof trapping and baiting stations so in this instance baiting in the garden can be safely managed and is recommended practice. http://www.youtube.com/
