Reputable Rat Exterminator Posts New Blog On How to Get Rid of These Nuisance Pests
Apex Pest Control has just added a new blog called 'Rat Exterminator: How to Get Rid of a Rat Infestation'. They did this because now is the prime season for these nuisance pests to try to take up permanent residence in many homes and businesses. This has many unwanted consequences for those who own or live in the places that rats occupy. The company wants the general public in the Sheffield area to know that even though a small number of rats living together can cause big problems, by reading this blog, they can learn how to get rid of rats.
The company’s owner, Tony Johnson, states, “Rats have a well-deserved reputation for being destructive and carrying diseases that can spread illness. Not to mention, they can be very scary to accidentally stumble across as they scurry around in the middle of the night. That makes them something that you don’t want around your home or business for a second longer than you have to. That’s why our customer-friendly business took the time to post this new blog. It will give you some ideas that can help you rid yourself of these nuisance pests. As a reminder, rat removal is also a service that we at Apex Pest Control provide and are experts at doing.”
The newly posted blog article started by saying that most rat activity takes place at night. It also mentioned that the two biggest threats from rats are the fact that they are highly likely to contaminate food sources and their gnawing and left behind droppings & urine can cause extensive damage to any structure. Also brought up in the article is the fact that homes and businesses with large attic or basement spaces are the most susceptible to rat infestation. The blog then went on to say that while some people have success trapping a few rats that may only eliminate the ‘tip of the iceberg’ as far as the problem goes. It also cautioned against poisoning rats because they usually die in places where the bodies cannot be retrieved and the rotting carcass will create a foul odor and present other problems too.
In the new blog, it was also discussed how to spot signs of rat infestation. These are especially important to look for because since rats are nocturnal, they may not even be noticed by those in a home or a business. The new post went on to say that among the most common signs of the presence of rats include gnaw marks and the rice-shaped brown droppings that they leave behind. It may also be the case where a person sees footprints in dust, notices holes around the structure, or may even find evidence of a nest. Scratching and rattling noises at night are also a telltale sign of the presence of rates. The new blog post added that some of the more common areas that rats visit in a home that were not previously mentioned are rubbish bins, kitchens, decks, overgrown gardens, sheds, garages, and near drains.
The blog added that professional rat control is often the best way to go because it also helps prevent rat infestation. The blog talked about how Apex Pest Control uses a time-tested 4-step method to control rats on any property. It was also pointed in the article that the best way to get rid of rats is to not give them a reason to enter a property in the first place. That’s done by doing such things as keeping compost bins covered, not leaving food scraps around, not overfilling bird feeders, and by sealing up holes where rats can enter into a home or business.
Johnson added, “You should definitely be worried when rats get in your property. So, if you don’t want to take the time to do rat removal yourself or you are unsure how to go about doing it, our professional pest control services can get that job done for you.” The company owner mentioned that they can easily be contacted by both phone and email for more information on their rat control services.
