Rats infest your home in all seasons and summer is no exception. You may be surprised to deal with an invasion of rats at this time of the year, as people often associate this problem with the cooler months of the year. There’s a good reason for that because, due to the cold weather and scarcity of food, rats used to take shelter in your home to survive. However, that’s not the only time you can see these problematic pests, though. They can hit your house even in the summer. To ensure your space is pest-free, call rat control melbourne services to keep your home protected from these dirty creatures. If you’re looking for ways to get rid of them, here are some tips you can use.
Fix Potential Entry Points Immediately
During summer it’s natural that you keep your windows and doors open. This can be easy access for them to enter your home. Even If you have a small hole cracks or crevices, they can get in your house. You can take a walk outside your home and look for spots where these rats could invade easily and fix all the entry points immediately.
Cut Down The Food Sources
Rats always look for the leftovers that are on your counter tops and on your open trash can. They’ll even chew through the groceries and eat up all the nuts. So, ensure to keep all of your food is heavy, tight containers. Always keep the trash can closed and should not leave the pet food out overnight.
Keep The Garden Trimmed & Debris-Free
Rats need good places to hide, and if your garden is bushy, they can get into your house sooner. So, take time to remove your garden waste immediately. Also, keep some repellents and summer flowering plants to beautify your garden.
