Rat and rodent control can be a big worry to us here in the UK. This is especially true if you live in a big city, like London. Just because the temperatures have dipped a little, doesn’t mean you should stop worrying about rodents. As soon as the temperatures start to drop, rodents will start looking for a place to hide.
There’s some signs you should look out for, to spot rats around your home.
•Hearing scratching and scampering noises inside your walls, or on your ceilings.
•Finding tiny brown droppings.
•Seeing rodents around your home.
•Noticing chewed wiring and furniture.
Rodents bring danger with them that you need to be aware of. Rats will cause major destruction through their constant chewing. They also carry nasty diseases and parasites, which can make you and your family incredibly ill. A chewed through electrical wire can spark a house fire, and cause extensive damage around you home.
With some hard work, and some elbow grease, here’s a few things you can do to seal rodents out of your home during the winter months.
•Clear your garden of overgrown grass, weeds, and other clutter. Rodents love to hide, so take away the hiding places around your home.
•Remove any food sources from your garden. Don’t leave any pet food, scraps or bird food lying around for a rat to feast on. Keep your bins tightly sealed too.
•Trim the shrubbery away from your house. Don’t give the rodents easy access!
•Seal up any holes, gaps or cracks around your home. It only takes the tiniest of holes to let a rodent in.
•Keep your house clean and tidy.
