How to get Rats out of your attic - To know that rats are living in the house can be a shocking experience. Rats can transmit diseases and create hazardous environment for your whole family. In order to exclude rats from your attic you have to quickly act according to these five steps:
EXAMINE. Carefully examine through which voids rats are coming to your attic. It is very important to do this job; otherwise, there will be no chance to get rid of the rats. Rats may be entering through vents, voids in piping, holes in walls and roof. Also do not forget to check the chimney and most importantly your attic. Basically, very thorough examination of house condition and structure is required. Also, try learning about the behavior of the rats. Answer the following questions: when do they leave, where do the mostly gather (you may see the signs of brown stains, gnawed structures and greased places)? Only then you will be able to locate all the spots they get in to the attic.
SEALING. Sealing of the holes and voids is a key to a successful riddance of the rats. Once the holes and voids are sealed rats will not be able to get in or get out from the house and it will be easier to trap them. It is recommended to use a quality sealing substances as rats can chew their way in. Consider using thick and strong materials for this job.
TRAPPING. Use the traps of your choice to capture the rats. You may try staying humane to the wildlife and choose either cage traps or netting. When putting up the cage use bait and after the rats are caught set them free far away from your house. Using netting requires more attention to the behavior of the rats. Install a net on a primary rat entrance and wait until they leave without the ability to get back. However, rats populate very quickly and they carry diseases, so it is highly recommended to use lethal snap traps. They are cheap and very effective. It is important to place traps in the right spots. Look for the droppings and greased spots - rats are gathering in those places.
CLEANING. It is crucial to clean after trapping the rats. Feces may cause to grow mold on the wooden structures and worse - they cause health problems. Also, the scent that rat has attracted other rats, so it is important to remove the bad odor. Remember: throw out the rats, vacuum their droppings, clean urine and fog the whole attic with recommended cleaner.
CHECK. It is important to repeatedly check your house for appearing gaps, cracks and other voids. Also, keep good sanitation of your house.
