How to control Rat at home

To control rat populations in your home, you can try the following methods:

  1. Seal entry points: Rats can squeeze through small holes, so inspect your home and seal any cracks or gaps with steel wool or caulk.

  2. Store food properly: Store food in airtight containers and clean up spills and crumbs promptly.

  3. Remove harborage: Remove piles of debris, wood, and weeds near your home to eliminate places for rats to hide.

  4. Traps: Place snap traps in areas where you have seen rat activity. Check the traps regularly and dispose of any dead rats.

  5. Poison bait: Poison bait stations can be effective in controlling rat populations, but use them with caution, as they can be dangerous to pets and children.

  6. Professional extermination: If the infestation is severe, consider hiring a professional exterminator.

Note: It's important to use humane methods of controlling rat populations, and to avoid methods that cause suffering.
