Suffolk County, Suffolk County Rat Control Situation:
I am writing from England. I am sure we have rats and/or mice in our bungalow in Islip Long Island. The problem is that I haven't seen them. I am constantly being woken up at night hearing noises, but I try to tell myself that I was dreaming or imagining it. I have long scratches on my leg (from my ankle for about 3 inches up my leg). I do not know what has caused them but they happen overnight. I am scared and do not know what to do. I cannot remember the last time I had a good night's sleep. My husband says that there are no droppings so we can't have unwanted visitors. I did buy one of those mice repellent things and all was well for a while but now the winter is here, the noises are happening again. I do hope you can help/advise me.
Hi David, We live in Ronkonkama, we had some rats in our attic last year and I think they are gone. At least I do not hear them any more and I found a dead one. Our attic has areas where they had nests and lots of paths through the insulation. I also found where I think they came in which was where one of our roof lines is not sealed. Do or who could we get to seal this area and clean up spots in the attic to prevent them from wanting to visit again? About what would something like this run to have done?
Suffolk County Rat Control Tip of The Week
How Can I Get Rid Of Rats Outside My House?
Having rats outside your house disturbing your peace is indeed a big deal. Apart from being a nuisance outside your house by creating burrows in your yard or lawn, it's just a matter of time before they find their way into your home. This simply means getting rid of the rats outside your house is as important as getting rid of those in your house.
Have you been looking for the best way to do this in order to keep your environment free from rats? Right here, we will be taking you through some of the most effective and humane ways to get rid of the rats outside your house.
The use of traps in getting rid of rats is a method many people are quite familiar with. To use this method, all you have to do is to buy a trap from a store, bait it, and set them around the places where the rats frequent the most. Before setting this trap, make sure your pets are locked up in a compartment or restricted from moving around your yard to avoid injuring your pets instead of the rats.
2. Smoke Bombs
If the rats have successfully created numerous burrows around your house, using smoke bombs is the best way to get rid of them. To use this particular removal method, all you have to do is release the smoke bombs into all of their burrows. It is very effective, but you need to avoid using it on burrows that are close to trees and other flammable structures in order to avoid fire hazards.
3. Use Dry Ice
This particular removal method is the best option if you are in an urban area. Dry ice is a solid that releases carbon dioxide when dropped into the burrows of rats. When the dry ice is released, the carbon dioxide anesthetizes the rats and kills them. This particular method is very quick and humane.
