Rodent-Proofing Your Home: How To Get Rid Of Rats 

Rats are one of the most common pests in  Cherryland, South San Francisco, San Mateo, Union City, San Jose, and the Bay Area. They can cause property damage, spread disease, and contaminate food products. The best way to prevent a rat infestation is through preventive rodent proofing.

What Is Rodent Proofing? 

Rodent proofing is a term used to describe all of the procedures used to keep rats out of buildings, homes, businesses, etc. This includes sealing off all potential entry points, removing potential food sources, and using traps or poisons as needed.

Identifying Entry Points 

The first step in rodent-proofing your home or business is identifying where rats may be getting in. Look for any cracks or holes that could provide an entry point into your home or business. Check around windows, doors, foundations, vents, and even roof eaves – rats can fit through surprisingly small openings! Once you have identified these potential entry points you can begin sealing them up with caulk or steel wool. 

Removing Potential Food Sources 

Once you have sealed off all potential entry points it’s important to remove any possible food sources for rodents. This includes not just food but also garbage cans and pet food dishes – both of which can act as a major attractant for rats. Make sure that all food containers are sealed tightly and stored in areas that are out of reach from rodents such as cupboards or pantries. It’s also important to regularly empty garbage cans outside so that rats don’t have an easy source of food inside your home or business. 

Using Traps & Poisons 

In some cases, you may need to use traps or poisons if you already have an established rat population in your home or business. If this is the case then it’s important to make sure they are placed properly so as not to harm children or pets that may be living with you. If you decide to use poison then it’s important to read all instructions carefully before using it as improper usage can lead to more problems than solutions! It’s also important to contact a professional pest control company if you think you have a serious infestation on your hands – they will know exactly how best to tackle it!
