New Haven County, Waterbury Rat Control Situation:
Hi David - I just read your article on rat/mice removal using the DIY approaches. We are currently looking for a professional to come to our home asap, in the meantime I wanted to get your recommendations for the clean-up inside our home, not the attic. Is it ok to use a household vacuum cleaner? I found droppings our master bedroom closet and wanted to vacuum the entire area and other closets as well, but was unsure of the potential issue of contaminating my vacuum cleaner. If a vacuum cleaner is not a good option, could you recommend an alterative tool to clean floors/carpeted areas where 1) Droppings have been seen and/or 2) just general clean-up in the same area. Thanks for your time. Angie

Waterbury 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.
