Prevent Rat Infestations

Also remember to seal up all the food in your house and keep everything in closed containers. If the food is left hanging out in the open it could attract rats or other pests.
A great way to remove rats from your home is to get a cat. They are great company and natural rat predators. A good cat can help to remove a rat infestation in just a few weeks.
Trapping rats is the traditional way to remove a rat infestation and the best way to ensure your success is to identify the rats’ feeding and nesting places.

Just remember to check the traps regularly and remove and dispose dead rats immediately.
