Keeping the Rats Away


If you have problems with rats in your area (hopefully not your home), follow these simple steps to keep they FAR away from your house!  If you ever need advice, don’t hesitate to call a professional right away! 


  1. Keep the outside of the home clean.  Trim your shrubs and bushes.  Keep them off the ground so that nothing can hide underneath them.  Store firewood at least a foot off the ground.  No brush piles in the yard.  This is a perfect home for rats. 
  2. Tidy the garage and shed.  If you like to garden, keep your plant seeds and fertilizer stored in a sealed container.  These are viable food sources for rats.  Do not store firewood in the garage or shed.  This is a nesting site for rats. 
  3. Hide the garbage.  Make sure your trashcans have tight lids and made of metal, if possible.  If you use a plastic trashcan, make sure there are no holes in them. 
  4. Store pet food properly.  Rats love pet food, so make sure to store the pet food in a container with a tight lid.  Arizona Pest Control Near Me Carefree
