Getting rid of rats can be a bit tricky. Rat infestation is not always apparent and can occur without any visible evidence. Rats tend to come out only at night and hide during the day, which makes it difficult to spot a rat infestation immediately. These pests are unsanitary and may spread harmful diseases, that is why it is important to get rid of this common pest.
How can you prevent rats or mice from infesting your house?
- Regularly clean cluttered areas like garages and basements.
- Carefully store food, leftovers and edible products to avoid attracting mice.
- Seal any cracks in the foundation of your house.
- Get rid of debris and wood piles.
- Tend your garden and make sure that plants, shrubs, or trees do not harbour pests.
- Use bait and rat traps. Baits can be sprinkled in hard-to-reach areas around the house where rats may nest.
Are rat traps or baits effective in stopping a pest infestation?
Over-the-counter rat traps is a tool you can use to get rid of these pesky rats. However, using a rat trap does not offer a lasting solution to any rat infestation.
Take note that using professional rat baits is a common rat pest control method. However, we recommend that you seek the help of professional pest control experts who know how to handle bait systems correctly. If handled on your own, baits and harmful pest chemicals can cause harm children and pets.
For a reliable and effective rat pest control, we recommend that you hire a professional pest exterminator.

More about rat infestation
Rats are little furry rodents that can be found in holes, near debris, under rocks, underneath bushes, and in other cluttered areas such as basements and attics. There are two common types of rats that invade homes, the brown rats and roof rats. The brown rat is also commonly referred to as the “common rat” or the “wharf rat.” Meanwhile, the roof rat is also called as the “black rat”, “house rat”, or the “ship rat”. Both types are unsanitary rodents that defecate around the house, gnaw at furniture and wood, and transmit various diseases. They are mostly active in dark areas, and can be found in cluttered areas. Rats have the tendency to eat almost anything that they see, but they are known to primarily feed off vegetables, flowers, fruits, grains, insects, and meats.
Rats should not be allowed to grow in number. The further they expand their territory, the worse it will get for you. Rats are able to reproduce very quickly and their numbers can grow to hundreds within weeks. Imagine what it is like living in a house with 100 rats. Ask help from our pest control experts.
