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
How Can I Get A Rat Out Of My Car?
Clean Up Your Car:
When a rat no longer has access to the food inside your car it will no longer have a good place to nest, sleep, or find food. Rats always nest close by to where their food source is and if you have a large amount of garbage in your car or items that can be fed upon, they're much more likely to stick around.
Trim Back Foliage From Your Car:
When you notice branches that overhang your car it's possible that you can have problems with a number of uninvited guests. Trimming back the items around your car can be a crucial way that you can prevent pests like rats from having a direct line to get into the vehicle.
Close Up Your Car:
Make sure that you are closing up your car. If you have a window that is open, a sunroof that opens, or a door that doesn't quite close, a rat can make their way in quite quickly and easily. A rat only needs around half an inch to get into a space and even though it may not seem like there is that much room, a rat can make it into the area easily.
Remove Moisture And Damp Clothing From Your Vehicle:
If you have paper, damp clothing, or other items across your vehicle, they need to be removed quickly. Damp clothing can be an ongoing problem when it comes to attracting rats and keeping them in your car.
Set Down Some Traps:
A quick set trap that you place in your car in the evening or a metal pedal trap can be a great way to manage a rat problem in your car. Making sure that you can trap the rat in your vehicle can be crucial to building a better method of keeping rats out of your vehicle.
