Rats are a common nuisance in many houses around the world. Here are some techniques that can help you drive the rats away from your house.
One of the most effective methods to do this is to use electronic pest control techniques. These techniques employ ultrasonic rat repellent devices that let out sounds of very high frequencies to repel rats. Neither human beings nor household pets can hear these sounds and they are hence safe for use in houses.
One can also use organic rat repellents for driving rats away from the household. These include use of small tablets or tiny granules that give out a smell of different animals that feed on rats. They can be spread evenly across the house, in the backyard, garage and all other places that are frequented by rats.
You can also use moth balls that emit very strong repelling smell and can drive the rats away from your house. These can be placed at the nooks and corners of the home for better results.
Making Use Of mechanical traps, often known as wooden snap traps, is a method of rat extermination that is still quite well known. They are not only cheap and easy to use, but are also extremely effective if laid with the correct bait. They must be kept away from children and household pets as they can cause injuries. One problem with these traps is that they can trap only one rat at a time. Yet a good thing about them is that they do not have toxic ingredients, unlike other rat repellents.
Rats can also be caught and eliminated by making use of a glue board. A glue board can be easily made by taking a cardboard or wooden plank and putting a lot of glue on it. The board can then be laid at specific places after placing bits of food to draw the rats. When rats reach for the food, they get stuck to the glue and they can’t get off the board. This eventually results in their starving to death.
