Salt Lake City Rat Removal Tip: How to keep rats out of my garbage
Garbage bags and garbage cans are some of the most attractive areas where rats will like to be around. This is why rats will always be found where there is a dumping site. Rats like to scavenge for food and garbage presents a very attractive option to getting a good supply of food. Most especially if it is garbage from a residential area as opposed to in commercial buildings where garbage may be of inedible content.
Unfortunately enough, rats are not the most organized eaters and they will tear through garbage like a tornado and leave it scattered everywhere in the most unsightly manner possible. There are however some steps that you can take in order to prevent rats from making a mess of your garbage.
Some of these steps include:
1. Tidying up the area around the garbage
If you have cleaned the area where you keep your garbage and do it on the regular, it may be difficult for rats to smell the dirt and come to scavenge around there. Keeping the area clean will also ensure that there are no hiding places for this animals.
2. Storing garbage appropriately
Keeping your garbage in well tied up bags will also reduce the chances of rats coming in to scatter them. This is as opposed to leaving the garbage bags open as this might just attract more rats to come around.
3. Emptying garbage regularly and more frequently
Increasing the frequency at which you remove your garbage will also help to curb the rats nuisance around your home. When there is no trash in the garbage the rats will not get food to scavenge and so they will go on to look elsewhere.
4. Throw garbage in can with a lid
Instead of leaving your garbage in polythene garbage bags and leaving them outside, you might want to go a step further and keep the garbage bags inside a garbage can that has a secure lid. This will effectively keep these animals from going through your garbage or worse still, eating through the garbage bags to access the trash in it. Garbage cans are not easy to poke holes into and the rats will be at a loss and will leave.
5. Using smell deterrents to mask the smell of food
While rat repellent chemicals may not have the desired effect in getting rid of rats, they may just come in handy when it comes to masking the smell of leftover food that may have been dumped in the garbage can. You may not necessarily need to use rat repellents, a good bleaching agent will also mask the smell of food significantly, throwing off scavenging rats.
In conclusion, it is quite clear that cleanliness around the garbage area is the key to keeping away rats from your home. Going the extra mile and ensuring that the garbage is well stored and regularly disposed of will ensure that you don't have to constantly deal with the mess that these animals make in search of food around garbage bags.
