El Paso County, Colorado Springs Rat Control Situation:
Hi David: I am dealing with a rodent issue in my apartment, I am constantly cleaning feces and washing and mopping and bleaching the areas in which they seem to deficate. It seems to be less now that I have put down the poison to kill them and send them to their nest. I now see that they are eating the bait by the change in the color of the fece, what is your safety recommendations on continued cleaning and what diseases might be associated with your field or house mice. Also I now see larger pellets. I am worried that the mouse might be larger then they were before. May God bless and keep you Andra
Hi David, I just looked at your website and found it very interesting,I've had rats in the roof of my house for many years and I'm just in the process of eliminating every possibly entry point as you explained. I've tried the poison and totally agree with what you say about that. When I look around my house I can actually see where they would be getting in.You say it's best to block every entry point while the rats are still there, and then trap what rats are blocked in,, yes that makes sense to me .Well thanks again for the most informative website . regards Colin in Colorado Springs

Tips To Get Rid Of Rats In The Attic
It's normal for you to have that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach when you keep hearing that scurrying sound coming from your attic because of the indecent activities of rats. To put an end to this weird feeling, you need to get rid of the rats living in your attic.
Have you been wanting to do this but you don't know how to go about it? Right here, we will be sharing some tips on how to get rid of rats in the attic. With the following tips, you will be able to do as you please and keep your attic free from rats.
When it comes to getting rid of rats in your attic, the first thing you need to do is to inspect your house in order for you to know exactly how the rats got into your attic. Being a very flexible animal with an ability to sneak around and pass through openings as small as a quarter of an inch, rats can enter into your attic through different openings. What this implies is that you need to inspect your attic properly to know how they got in.
The second step you need to take is to inspect your attic to know the extent to which the rats have damaged your attic. Rats in the attic are capable of chewing your wires and tearing the insulation in the roofing for their nests.
After inspecting the attic, the next thing you need to do is seal up all the entry holes that you were able to find while inspecting the attic. This should be done with durable materials that rats can't chew. Materials like this include steel screens and metal.
Lastly, you need to trap or kill the rats using either a snap trap or a one-way exclusion funnel. Do not use rat poisons to get rid of the rats in your attic. It will only create more environmental problems instead of reducing them.
