With our professional rat removal skills, we will be able to eradicate these creatures and seal off all the entry points in your home.

What Are Some Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Rats?

Rat nuisance removal services have become a service of necessity that most if not all of the homeowners and residents of Florida cannot do without. This has been escalated due to the ever-growing number of incidences of rat infestations in homes and gardens.

Rat extermination services have however been cast into doubt due to the entry of unscrupulous service providers whose only aim is profit making at the expense of homeowners who are desperate for the services. We as the Nuisance Wildlife Ranger are a reliable rat extermination company that aim to provide high-quality rat removal services.

What Smell Keeps Rats Away?

When you go shopping for solutions to keep rats away, there numerous options that will be offered to you. There are some advertisers that will advocate for certain scents that are supposedly meant to repel rats. The most common one is mothballed, which unfortunately do not work.

Ammonia is also proposed as an effective remedy for keeping rats away, but this will not work, either. The same applies to peppermint and any other thing that you may have been told. The best way to keep rats away is to ensure that they do not have a source of food or water. A professional rat removal expert will find the right techniques to keep these critters away.

What Repels Rats Naturally?

When you have a rat infestation in your home, the most common solution that is sold is rat poison. However, this is an effective way and poses great dangers. What most people do not know is that when rats feed on the poison, they do not die on the spot, they will retreat to their nest and die in there. This means that you will be left with a rat carcass in your home and this can be quite frustrating. There are rats that may also eat the poisoned bait and not die.

There are humane ways to eradicate rats, naturally. This is through the use of caged traps that will be used to remove the rats from your home without killing them. Rat poison is not effective and in most cases, it is overrated and does not give you the results expected.

What Are Rats Attracted To?

Did you know that rats can survive with as little as an ounce of water and food per day? As such, when you leave your trash uncovered and unattended, this attracts them. In most cases, rats end up in your home in search of food and water. They will scavenge around your trash bags and eventually they will end up in your home. If you have a trash bin, it is imperative to keep it covered at all times, as this will keep the rats away. Getting rid of rats can be a repetitive cycle if they still have access to water and food.

Do Rats Come Out During The Day?

Rats are nocturnal and this is why they tend to be active from dusk to dawn. There are instances when you might actually see the rats, during the day, but this is when the nest has been disturbed. In other cases, rats will be running out when there is a heavy infestation in your house. Ordinarily, these are some of the critters that do no love too much light. Most breeds are partially blind and too much light tends to affect them adversely. If you see a rat running across your yard during the day, then you might have a very large infestation of the same.

How Do You Kill Rats In Your Home?

Rats are cunning and intelligent creatures. As such, you cannot expect to come directly to the trap that you have set for them. They will do as much as they can to avoid the traps. As such, you need to outsmart them when it comes to the placing of the traps. You should identify areas that have a high level of rat traffic and this is where you will place the traps.

Since rats love to run along walls, you should ensure that the traps are touching the wall. You can certainly expect some level of resistance, as the rats try to avoid the traps. To get the best results, you should hire a professional to trap the rats and remove them for you.

Rats come to your house in search of food, water, and shelter. You can easily remove the rats from your home by hiring a rat removal specialist. These are experts with the skills and expertise to eliminate the rats, successfully. Once the rats are removed, it is imperative to keep them away for good. Some of the measures that you can take is to ensure that your food is stored properly and any debris is cleaned right away.

Check your plumbing also to fix any leaks so that you can deprive them of water. Do not be tempted to use poison as it may end affecting your children and pets. Working with a professional rat removal expert is the best way as they will use non-toxic methods and ensure that the rat menace is eliminated completely.

Getting Rid Of Rats With Peppermint Oil

A natural way to get rid of rats is to appeal to their sense of smell. Perhaps the most powerful ingredient to achieve this goal is peppermint. As humans, we love the smell of peppermint. We put it in our mouths, homes, cars, clothes and other places which need to be freshened up a bit. Rats and mice, on the other hand, absolutely hate the smell.

Studies have shown the strong scent of peppermint causes a lethal reaction in these rodents, shrinking their lungs and progressively killing them. Dipping small cotton balls in peppermint and placing them near the rats’ doors could effectively deter them away from your home, especially with the life-threatening consequences of sticking around too long. If you do not have peppermint, you can sprinkle pepper near their “doors” instead. While peppermint causes their lungs to shrink, the smell of pepper inflates their lungs – creating a different reaction to the same fatal result.

How To Get Rid Of Rats Outside

While most people may not see the rats, the infestation is discovered by the various signs of their presence. If you hear some noises in the attic, walls, and ceilings at night, this may indicate the infestation of rats. Some of the common indicators include rat droppings, near the sources of food and also when you follow their trail, you may discover some greasy marks. If there holes in the fence, this may be used as the entry point.

In order to eliminate these nuisance animals outside, you need to ensure that they do not have any supply of food. This means that you should clear out your trash often and if possible invest in a metal trash can that has a lid. You should also keep away pet food and this prevents the rats from coming into your compound. Nuisance Wildlife Rangers are experienced in rat removal and would be the best option in this case.

How To Get Rid Of Rats In-House Fast

There are quite a number of solutions and techniques that can be applied to get rid of rats. The common ones include using a trap and there are different types of traps. Some are lethal and will kill rats instantly. Rat poison is the other option that would be, ideally, recommended. However, this comes with its own fair share of challenges, since rats do not ingest poison right away. It means that they will end up dying somewhere in the house, which may be hard to reach.

Hiring a professional rat removal company is the best way to eliminate these rodents. These are experts that will explore a number of options and the good news is that such experts use humane ways. Call Nuisance Wildlife Ranger to get rid of rats professionally.

Getting Rid of Rats Professionally

Rats do not stagger into your home accidentally; there is something that attracts them into your compound. The only way that you will keep the rats away is by ensuring that your property is not attractive to them. You should get rid of all garbage so that it does serve as a source of food for these rats. The next step that you can take is sealing off all the loopholes and gaps that may be used as an entry point by the rodents.

Never leave the pet food outside and in case there are spills of the pet food, clean it up. Getting a cat might also help in repelling the cuts and also removing any bird feeders as well as fruit trees may be an ideal solution.
