There are several reasons why rats may be attracted to your home. Primarily, they seek shelter from the cold and harsh outdoor environment. By finding a heated and comfortable place, rats can easily multiply and build nests with a nearby food source. This combination can lead to multiple generations of rats living in your home. Additionally, leaky pipes and other sources of water can provide an easy source for rats to quench their thirst.
Rats have a non-specific diet and are known to eat feces, dumpster contents, and garbage from our trash cans. What may seem like trash to us is actually a full multi-course buffet for them. Unfortunately, rats are carriers of several diseases, including the infamous plague, salmonellosis, leptospirosis, and tularemia. It’s important to be aware of the potential health risks associated with rats.
It’s important to avoid contact with rats’ urine and droppings as they can transmit diseases. To prevent rats from entering your home, it’s recommended to thoroughly inspect the perimeter of your house as rats are highly agile and can enter through cracks, gaps in structures, and exposed pipes. The key is to limit any possible entryways for rats to prevent them from gaining access to your home.
For effective prevention of rodents from entering your house, it is highly recommended to hire a reliable pest control service to conduct an exterior inspection and identify any possible entry points that need to be sealed. The technician can also install tamper-proof exterior bait stations in strategic locations where rats are attracted and eventually perish. As a precaution, make sure to inspect your back and garage doors as well as any gaps in your foundation, as mentioned earlier.
