Montgomery County continues to grow as more families and couples decide to move into the area. As the population of the county continues to grow, more wildlife is being displaced from their natural homes while other wildlife is attracted to the increase in food. Since the population has been increasing in the area, Montgomery County residents are finding themselves in need of rat control services. While some residents may not believe that rats can cause harm, they can create health hazards for your family and pets. Rats are known to carry several parasites and diseases, which could then be transferred to your pets or children should they play outdoors after a rat has been present.
Rat Control Steps
- If you participate in trash removal services, be sure to store your trash bags in metal trash cans with a secure lid. This will help prevent rats from being attracted to the smell as well as ripping into your trash bags.
- If you have areas with standing water, such as yard ponds, consider filling them in with soil. Any type of standing water will help to attract the rats and have them coming back regularly for a water source.
- Be sure to check the outside of your home for gaps or holes where rats can enter. If you notice holes against your home’s foundation, you most likely have a rat nesting under your house.
- Keep your yard clear of any dog or cat feces from house pets. This will attract rats and give them a source for food. Try to also keep your yard clear of any other debris or trash that could act as a food source for rats.
