We're guessing that the last thing you want is to start thinking about how to remove rodents from your home or apartment after one has already made its way into your living space. The best way to avoid an infestation is by taking preventive measures when it comes to food storage and waste disposal - but if there's already an invasion on your hands then don't fret! There are plenty of other things you can do besides just taking out the trash more frequently. These critters can be sneaky, so it's important to know how to keep them out of your home or apartment quickly! Here is an article about how to get rats & mice out of your home or apartment FAST. This blog post was written by a professional exterminator who knows just what you need to do if you have rodents infesting your house. Read on for more information! How to Prevent Rat Infestation There are a few things you should always be doing to ensure that rats will not infest your home or office. Food and shelter are the two main things that rats are looking for on your property. So if you eliminate those rat necessities, you’re setting yourself up for success. Instilling simple processes like not keeping food in the garage, or holding trash cans near the perimeter of the house, will help keep rats away. If you have openings of any size on the exterior of your home, you are going to want to cover those holes as soon as possible. Rats will find a way into your attic or walls through holes that are as small as a silver dollar coin. You can also spray peppermint oil or ammonia along doorways and indoor/outdoor perimeters to deter the rats from entering. How to Remove Rats From Your Home


Even though rats and mice seem like clever little creatures, they really aren't that smart. That means you can trick them quite easily. The timeless design of the mousetrap still works, but you have to put them in the right place. If you place traps in a location that the rats/mice don't reside around, chances are you're not going to trap them. That being said, a little bit of cheese or some peanut butter on the trap will make these vermin come out of hiding. Rat-Proofing Techniques


One way to ensure that rats won't enter your home is to seal up holes they can fit in. This includes cracks under doors, gaps around pipes and wires, and spaces between the foundation and walls. Do you have holes around your house that you don't want to completely seal? There are workarounds for this, like stuffing these holes with steel wool or mothballs can do the trick.

Don't want to Kill the Rats? Humane Trapping


If you don't want to brutally take the lives of these rodents when you rid them from your home or office, there are ways around that. Humane options for rat removal include cage traps and glue traps. After you have them trapped, you can have them relocated to a rural area where they can live out the rest of their lives as field rats that enjoy the countryside forging and living off the natural land.
