Lehigh County, Allentown Rat Control Situation:
Hey! Found your website and I'm hoping you can help with something! I work in the Downtown Eastside of Bethlehem PA for an outreach organization that operates single old hotels (single room occupancy) to help severely mentally ill and addicted persons get services and get off the street. I often work nightshift in different hotels, and some of them have worse rat problems than others... Sometimes I am working alone and cannot leave the office area, and a few places have so many rats that they crawl across the floor while you're working in there. I'm not able to leave, I have nobody to help me, and I just want the rats to stay away from me while I'm working! I know they get Bethlehem PA Pest Control in these buildings all the time, but unfortunately they cannot get into all of the rooms without the resident's permission! So sealing up all the entry points is sometimes impossible. This is also a frustration with bedbugs and roaches... Anyway, I am hoping there's something I can get that would keep them away from me on nightshift when there is nothing I can do about getting an exterminator in Allentown or Bethlehem or Easton. I'm also working alone with no safety equipment, so I don't want to be disposing of dead rats in traps :( Do strobe lights help for this kind of thing or is it a waste of money? I was thinking one may help keep them out of the space I'm occupying just for the time I'm there? Your help is SUPER appreciated! Thank you so much!!
Allentown Rat Control Tip of The Week
City Subways And The Presence Of Rats
Rats, like pigeons, badgers, and foxes thrive in urban environments, even moving to these places. Cities are full of garbage dumps, abandoned lands, and sewers that can provide a cozy burrow for rats to live in and raise their families. Human beings have provided the perfect conditions for the well-being of this species.
Sewers And Rats
Sewers can provide everything needed for an exponential multiplication of rodents. The problem is that the more rats there are, the more they need food, so to get it they will be severely aggressive towards each other. This aggressiveness and the search for new food sources can cause serious damage to the city.
Rats Are The Real Infection
These rodents are known for carrying bacteria that cause infectious diseases leading humans to death. Something similar occurs with rats when they spread through sewers, subways, garbage dumps, and train tracks.
Rats survive thanks to the mountains of garbage in the city and play a vital role in reducing this waste. However, wiring or holes and infrastructure problems can be just some of the catastrophic consequences for the city's subway system.
Humans love junk food and in big cities, high-calorie garbage has given the rats that eat it the energy they need to grow exorbitantly even creating resistance to some rat poisons.
The well-being of citizens begins with professional pest control combined with a mind-set of not throwing garbage into the environment. Briefly, if there is neither food nor garbage, there are no rats. The fewer rats there are in places like the subway, the fewer rats will be able to reach homes. The more we take care of the city, the fewer health problems or economic damage there will be.
