Westchester County, Westchester Rat Control Situation:
HI FROM WESTCHESTER COUNTY NY. DESPERATELY NEED YOUR HELP. ALMOST every night rats come into our motor home under the hood. SOME nights they eat 2 or 3 blocks of poissen other nigh they eat 8 or 9 blocks of poison. IF its on the market we have probably tried it. THEY chew up the wires and everything under the hood. SO far all we can do is just keep putting out more poissen. THE neighbor has many bird feeders out so he is just feeding the rats. HE just laughed when I talked to him. WE are the only ones on the block seemingly bothered with them. WE live close to farms in this area. PLEASE is there anything we can do to keep them off this property? WE ARE DESPERATE. THANK YOU
Hi David, I was just on your site and I really, really wish we had some companies in this area that will help 'resolve' the problem once and for all, rather than come back and keep charging me insane prices to trap my rats and tell me they have no idea how they're getting in my house!! I've cut down my hedge, and done numerous other things to keep them away, but they still come back. Other than rip the vinyl siding off my house (covers up the old stucco) to find out where the little devils are coming in, I'm lost in Victoria Any help or suggestion you may be able to offer would be so appreciated. PS: I love your website - very thorough
Westchester Rat Control Tip of The Week
Is One Rat A Sign That There Are More Present?
Rats are animals that tend to move around in groups, they are not solitary animals. For this reason, if you see a rat in your home, it is a sign that there are more rodents present. It is imperative that you start radical extermination as soon as possible, avoiding their reproduction.
In addition to traveling in groups, they have a very rapid reproduction capacity, especially if they find a comfortable place in your home.
How To Know If There Are Rats In Your House?
If you have seen or heard a rat in your home, there are probably more hidden in the most unexpected corners of your house. There are many ways you can tell if there are rodents in your home, even if you don't see them. For example:
Unusual Sounds: Rats are noisy animals; they can make noise at night, or even during the day. Whenever they bump into things, chew on objects or food, and move from one side of the house to the other, you will hear them
Nibbled Food And Objects: The best sign that there are rats in your house is if you find nibbled objects, such as clothes, shoes, or bags. Similarly, finding food packaging with holes or even foods with bites is a sign of rodents in the house.
Droppings And Urine: Rats will usually leave them anywhere in the house. It is important to be aware of any sighting of excrement, which can be quite small (the size of a grain of rice).
Where Do These Rodents Usually Hide?
Rats will always look for a place that provides them with safety and food. They usually hide in small spaces, as it is easier for them to move from one place to another. They will probably decide to stay in a place close to the kitchen so that it is easier to go out in search of food for their pups.
In short, seeing a rat is a sign that more are present and hidden. Don't wait a minute to take action in this situation! The last thing you want is a plague of rats living inside the walls of your home.
