Robert Hicks - Thursday, September 28, 2017


While some may keep rats as pets, the kind that find their own way into your home or business are not friends to humans. They can carry diseases — like the bubonic plague, salmonella poisoning, rat-bite fever, and leptospirosis, to name a few  and cause damage to your home or property.

Some of these diseases can be fatal even with medical treatment and internal damage that rats cause to homes and businesses can be tough to repare, which is why we're going to discuss how Markle prevents rats from ever entering.

What are some of the ways to prevent rats from entering a home?

  2. Cleaning up left over foods after eating outside
  3. Keeping the inside of a home tidy by vacuuming, sweeping and cleaning counter tops
  4. Using rat traps in areas the rodents may enter
  5. Spraying rodent repellent spray around the foundation of the home
  6. Sprinkling rodent repellent powder around the foundation of the home
