Rhode Island Rat Removal Tip: What should I do if I find a nest of rats in the attic?
One of the signs that will show you that you have a rats nest in your attic is shredded materials that they use to make a nest. Other obvious signs include rat droppings and urine in the attic, a lot of movement from the rats as they scurry back and forth looking for food to eat and holes in just about anything they can sink their teeth on thanks to their chewing mannerisms.
Having a nest of rats in the attic can be a huge nightmare to deal with. This is because a nest will not have one or two rats but it can have several, including their babies. More rats means you have a lot more damage and you have to put in a lot more effort to get rid of them. This is the point at which you might want to get help.
There are many ways in which you can trap the rats in the attic. Sealing off all holes in and out of the attic except one is one of the first steps that you should take. Setting a trap outside the remaining exit point is the next. Traps are available for purchase in stores and there is a variety that you can choose from.
Once you have a trap, you can go on to place some bait in it and leave it near the remaining exit. Your choice of bait should ideally be sweet smelling food that will quickly catch the attention of the rats. Rats have a good sense of smell that they use to look for food. As soon as the trap catches a rat, you should remove it and put it in a container and go on to trap the other rats that are in the attic. To ensure that you remove all the rats from the nest in the attic, you will need to keep monitoring your trap.
You should never try to poison rats anywhere in your home. This is because they may just end up dying in hidden places or places that you may not be able to access that easily leaving you with a lot more problems than you began with.
Consulting professional pest and critter control practitioners is the surest way to get rid of a nest of rats. This is because they would know just how to go about the procedure much more easily and effectively at the first attempt- well at least if they are a good reputable pest control service that should be the case. Moreover, the professionals will know the correct chemicals to use if any and administer the same within safe boundaries.
Professional pest removal services will also save you on a lot of time and money and take out the hassle of continuously monitoring the traps for rats. What's more, you get to have peace of mind later because they will put in measures to ensure the rodents do not return to your home.
