Inspect Your Home & Seal Any Gaps

In order to get into your home, rats actually need to find a way in, and we haven’t heard of any rats ringing the doorbell! Instead, rats will look for gaps and holes in the walls, windows and doors of your home to sneak their way in. The good news is there is something you can do about this. Try to do a thorough inspection of your home to identify any potential entry points for rats. By sealing these up you will be able to stop rats from entering your home.

Keep Your Home Clean

Rats absolutely love clutter. It provides space for them to find shelter and hide from predators. If your home is full of clutter then it will be very attractive to rats. Keep your home clean and clear of clutter to avoid rats invading and taking up residence in your property.

Clean Up Food Scraps and Crumbs

Another way to avoid rats entering your home is to clean up any food scraps and crumbs and ensure food waste isn’t staying in your home for too long. Rats are always looking for a food source and the last thing you want to do is provide them with an easy food source available in a nice cozy home. If you do, don’t be surprised to find you have a rat problem in no time at all. Keep your home clean of food scraps and crumbs to avoid rats.
