Winning the War on Rats!

War on Rats

There is no magic to rodent prevention and control. Residents can win the war against rodents by using a variety of common sense techniques.

HOW TO DISCOURAGE RATS FROM YOUR PROPERTY:

  • Use rodent-proof garbage cans with tight fitting lids to eliminate food supply.
  • Don't leave pet food out overnight.
  • Clean up pet droppings daily.
  • Don’t feed wildlife. If you have a birdfeeder, it must be 48-inches above ground level. It should be kept clean and tidy
    and never be overfilled.
  • Remove junk trash and tall vegetation that rats use for shelter. Trim weeds and brush and keep grass short (3-inches
    or less) to minimize cover and food sources.
  • All building materials, lumber, boxes, firewood and similar items should be stored either on rat-proof paved areas or
    stacked 18-inches above the ground.
  • Screen dumpster drainage holes with hardware cloth.
