If you have RATS, watch this video immediately!

If you know that you have rats in your home, we highly recommend watching the accompanying video for a comprehensive guide on dealing with rats effectively.

Understanding the Threat

In the 14th century, the infamous plague claimed millions of lives, and researchers now attribute its origin to fleas carried by rats. Today, rats remain carriers of bacteria that can contaminate your living space and food. Addressing a rat infestation promptly is crucial to ensure the health and safety of your household.

Guess What? 

I hate to say this to you but, you have two problems. First, is you have a rat inside your home. Second, there is an entry point that allow rats access to your home. A strategic plan is essential to tackle both aspects effectively.


Identifying Entry Points

Look outside your home for potential entry points. Sometimes, the eaves or overhangs may have openings, such as those accommodating electrical or plumbing pipes. If there are larger holes than the pipes themselves, use copper mesh to seal them. Copper is preferred over steel mesh to prevent rusting.

Choosing the Right Elimination Method

There are a lot of different ways to get rid of rats in your house. There are live traps, snap traps, glue boards, or bait stations. Live traps capture rats alive, requiring additional steps to deal with the captured rodent. If you use Snap traps, he’s probably not going to survive, and glue boards present the challenge of dealing with a live rodent. Bait stations, while effective, require careful use following label directions to prevent harm to pets or children.

Importance of Safe Practices

When dealing with a rat infestation, it’s crucial to act swiftly and effectively, but safety should always be a top priority. If you’re unsure or the situation seems overwhelming, don’t hesitate to seek professional help. Gillen Pest Control are here to assist you in managing rat problems safely and efficiently.
