Lansing Rat Removal Tip: Keeping Rats Out of Your Garbage
Rats are persistent, and they can be aggressive, too. They are omnivores that scavenge for food and anything will do. This means nothing is off limits.
Unfortunately, rats will often raid your trash looking for food. If they find what they are looking for and they have easy access, they will keep coming back with all their little friends. Before you know it, they will be inside your house, too.
The best way to protect yourself is to rat-proof things. Start with your garbage first, since that is what is attracting them. Here are a few things you can do to keep rats out of your trash.
First, you'll wan to eliminate access. This means clean up the area where your garbage can sits. You don't want to leave any type of debris or wood piles laying around. This is an open invitation and it gives them a cozy place to nest next to their new food source.
After you have cleaned things up, you'll wan to ensure that you are using a garbage can with a secure lid. This may mean purchasing one. If the lid fits loosely, you'll want to use a bungee cord to hold it on there tightly. If they can't access the food, they will be discouraged from visiting.
It also helps to throw food down a garbage disposal. If you don't have one, then tie it in a plastic grocery bag before throwing it away. Don't make it easy. You'll also want to use some baking soda or air freshener. The smell is what attracts them. If they can't smell it then they won't find it. Even if they do, you should have the lid secured so they can't get inside.
Another effective technique involves ammonia. Rats hate the spell of ammonia. It won't kill them, but it will repel them.
Keep a spray bottle full of ammonia. Its okay to dilute it a little but you want the smell to be strong. When you take your trash out, spray the outside of the bag down with ammonia before putting it in the can. You can also spray down the outside of the can. This usually does the trick.
However, keep in mind that they are persistent, and they will be back if they smell food. Even if you are using ammonia, you must clean the area around your garbage can and secure the lid on top. If you are not consistent, they will catch you off guard.
