How to Get Rid of Rats in Your Home

Having rats in your home can feel frustrating, to say the least. And you might be looking for ways to get rid of them, so you can protect your home, your family and yourself. The truth is, it’s best to reach out to a professional rat exterminator who can rid your home of the infestation for good.

How an Exterminator Can Rid Your Home of Rats

There are various methods an exterminator will use to rid your home of rats. Of course, it depends on the size of the infestation as well as the location of the rats within your home. Some of the methods include:

  • Exclusion: Your exterminator may begin by determining where rats are entering your home and fix that issue before moving forward. This ensures future rats stay out and helps control the population inside your home.
  • Trapping: Rat traps may include live traps or other options, depending on what your exterminator feels is best. These traps are placed in high-traffic areas of your home.
  • Baiting: Baits are used to lure and poison rats, typically through a food source. This is a common form of extermination and is often highly effective.

Your exterminator may also use a combination of these eradication methods for the best results.

DIY Is Dangerous for Your Family & Your Health

You can go to any grocery store and find rat poison and other items that promise to help you combat your rat infestation. Unfortunately, rat poison can be dangerous for your family and pets when it isn’t used correctly by skilled exterminators.

It’s also possible that you’ll spend a ton of money on poison, traps and baits, only to still be fighting an infestation months later. And the longer an infestation is left to its own devices, the bigger it tends to grow.
