Montgomery County, Philadelphia Rat Control Situation:
Hi, I have read your website and am hopeful you can provide me with some direction. I seem to have rats around my house. I see their holes along the side of house (under the front windows, not far from my porch). I don't see any evidence of them being under the porch, only holes along the sidewalk and under the window. Problem is I don't have any food for them. A year ago I paid to have someone come out. He put down poison. Now they are back. I have tried on my own to kill them with poison and gas flares, but I still see small holes. Is there anything I can do before they get into my house? This is a brand new house. I lay awake at night afraid they are going to get in. I am scared to death, literally. Is there something I put down? plant ? something? Please please advise. Warm regards, Lisa - Gone crazy. Be back soon.
That sounds more like vole (field mouse) activity. Rats don't really dig holes.
Thank you for responding. Do you have a website so I can determine how I located you. I think you might be right. I have done some preliminary research on the internet and I do have soft squishy spots in my lawn. One the rain has gone I will go and check if these are holes. Also, I lost most of my tulips I planted.

Hi David, I live out in Bryn Mawr, PA and I need a trustworthy service to come to my home and help me with a living creature, I think it's a rat, in my attic. I have been speaking with many services and they all sound like they all want tons of MONEY to deal with this. I am very skeptical and need honest advice. Can you refer me to the right source, and someone who is not a THIEF and simply wants to charge a reasonable professional for fee for servicing my home. Thanks, Fern

Best Ways To Keep Rats Out Of Your Garbage
The Most Effective Method
Have rats destroyed your garbage, and you are thinking about what to do? Are you in search of the best method to keep rats out of your garbage? You can end your concerns as the solution you are searching for is simply inside this article. There are numerous ways through which you can keep rats out of your garbage. Black and Norway rats consistently love to benefit from foods in the garbage and trashcans. Thus, homeowners regularly have issues of their waste and garbage being eaten by rats.
Ensure You Dispose Of Your Garbage Often
An ideal approach to disincentivize rats from visiting your garbage is to arrange your garbage so that it doesn't consistently sit around. If the rats find that they don't get enough from the garbage, they will quit coming. That essentially means you don't wait until your garbage gets filled to the edge before disposing of it. This technique will assist you with discouraging rats from visiting your garbage and spare yourself from managing a rat infestation.
Spread Ammonia On Your Garbage Bag To Repel Rats
Without a doubt, if you realize that you can't dispose of your garbage as frequently as conceivable to keep rats from visiting it, you can keep them out using ammonia. What you need to do is to spread ammonia on your garbage bag before tossing it inside your dumpster. The smell from the ammonia will keep rats from revisiting your trash or garbage. This technique is exceptionally compelling as it won't kill the rats, rather chase them away without any problem.
