Feb 17, 2017

It’s a relief when you get rid of an infestation of rats. It’s like a weight has been lifted from your chest. You want to shout to the hills how happy you are about not having to hear those terrible scratching noises and the fact that you can enter the garage again without that silent shudder and the feeling of being watched.

When it comes to rats however, you know how fast they can overwhelm your home if you don’t take care of them. They’ll chew threw anything, wood, plastic, and wire and unfortunately the mess they leave is worthy of a cleanup call itself.

Although the list isn’t exhaustive, here are the top 8 things you want to check to make sure there are no back doors for the rats to return through.

  1. The foundation
  2. Fascia
  3. Soffit
  4. Sewage piping
  5. Door sweeps
  6. Siding
  7. Vents
  8. Window screens
