Here our guide to prepare for Rats and Mice this summer.
- Gardening – Possible the most important aspect of this blog post. Rats, Mice and other Rodents use trees, shrubs and creepers to gain access to you warm roof. You need to cut back any and all over hanging foliage to prevent ingress.That garden rubble there in the corner or your garden, ensure that its removed, Rodents as well and Reptiles and Insect use that for a lovely cozy home to nest or hibernate through winter. Rubble could be home to so many species, natural matter produces the perfect ambient temperature and humidity level to allow an entire little ecosystem to thrive.Excess fruit that’s fallen from trees, ensure that’s picked up and disposed of out of the reach of unwanted Rodents. The less availability of food your unwanted pests the less chance you have that they will decide to stick around.
- Housekeeping – This is way up there in terms of important as gardening. Starting off at refuge and refuge storage. No matter what the situation all refuge should be kept out of the reach of Rodents. Prepare for Rats and Mice this summer by ensuring all refuge is stored in out of reach areas. All bags should be kept in bins fitted with lids. Lids should be closed at all times. If they don’t close, you either need to fix it or buy a new one. Refuge rooms to be kept neat and tidy, lean and free of spilled waste. By doing this you limit food for Rodents, this makes conditions less favorable.Food storage is also very important, all food should be kept in sealed containers. This keeps it fresh, Insect and Rodent free. Old food should be disposed of and excess opened foods removed from cupboards.
If you own a restaurant and have a dry foods store, shelving should be used and gaps should be left between walls and floors for inspections.
Animal lovers should ensure dog, cat and animal feeds away from the access of Rats, Mice and other Rodents. Many of the more expensive animal foods have higher levels of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin K is the natural antidote of all anti-coagulant based Rodenticides. Not restricting animal feeds during rodent baiting could lead to problems in the long term. Rodents could develop an immunity much the same as Black Rats have for Warfarin
