How to Get Rid of Rats from Your House Fast?

Among the pests and rodents that are common in Sydney, rats deserve a special mention. These vermin can be quite a nuisance in your home and cause a variety of problems. You would essentially want to implement a quick rats removal solution. The longer the rats stay in your property, the worse the problem would get.

How do you know that you have rats in your home?

You may not always see rats running around your home until it’s too late and you have a huge infestation to deal with. In fact, rats are usually sneaky and tend to stay out of sight most of the time. Here are a few signs that you may have a rat problem at home:

  • Weird noises such as those of scratching from dark places like the attic
  • Gnawed structural wood and wires
  • Burrows
  • Gnawed fruits in trees on your property
  • Rat droppings
  • Piles of nesting materials

In case you place mousetraps and notice that they have snapped without catching any mice, the chances are high that you are facing a rat problem. This is because mousetraps cannot always trap rats as rats are much larger in size than mice.

What is the best way to get rid of rats?

There are multiple ways to control a rat problem and get your home free from vermin. Three of the most popular and helpful techniques are:

1. Professional rat control services

Hiring a rat pest control company is by far the fastest and the most effective way to eliminate rats from your property. Especially if you are in need of a quick solution, it is highly advisable to hire professional rat control services. They would inspect your property, gauge the scale of the infestation to determine the best course of action. Accordingly, they would implement rat removal and control techniques to protect your property from rats.

2. Traps

One of the conventional rat control methods, a rat trap essentially holds or kills a rat. However, note that snap traps for rats are larger than mousetraps, decided specifically to catch rats. A mousetrap may fail to catch a rat or injure it in an inhumane manner. Live traps would trap rats alive, by letting them enter a space and locking them in. You may then release them in the wild or kill them humanely.

3. Bait stations

If you do not wish to trap the rats and would rather just kill them, bait stations are a viable choice too. The bait stations contain food poisoned with rodenticide. The rates would enter, consume the poisoned food, and exit. After a while, the poison would take effect and they would die. However, make sure to use only approved rodenticides in the form of pastes or blocks.

Why are professional rat control services better than DIY?

While DIY solutions seem to be more cost-effective, professional rat control Sydney is far more effective. This is because professionals possess greater expertise, better equipment, and high-quality rat-control products. Moreover, DIY solutions like rodenticides and rat traps often pose a threat to children and pets. If you are looking for a safe and effective solution, professional services are the best.
