Urban environments provide excellent habitats for rats to survive and thrive. Rats are active at night and generally avoid contact with people. Improved sanitation and the elimination of nesting sites will help ensure rat activity is eliminated. A Barrier Pest Control technician can help identify areas of concern as well as help eliminate activity.
Multiple visits are usually required to ensure a steady supply of bait or traps is maintained. Rats will feed on a variety of different items and are very shy when new things are put in their environment. It may take a day or two for them to approach anything new, such as traps or bait placed near where they are living and feeding.
With this cautious and slow to adjust rat it is best to take action quickly so at the first sign of activity it's best to reach out to your Pest Control Specialists at Barrier Pest Control.
