Call a pest agent company, and these are the actions they’ll probably do upon arriving:
- They’ll locate rats in your drains: Specialists would investigate how rats are going in and out of your drains. To know the entrances and exits, they will look for cracks, holes, crevices on outside walls. They’ll also look for pipes with an opening outside the property. However, the most effective way to investigate, though, is through a full CCTV drain inspection.
A full CCTV drain inspection is the insertion of a small camera inside your drainage. The small camera will be guided through your whole drainage system. It gives a live feed of what’s inside your drain.
- Blocking rodents: After a round of a full CCTV drain inspection, you’ll find several like damaged drains and scampering rats. They’ll likely recommend having your drains also fix the inclusion of installing rat flaps or rat blockers on the significant points of the pipes.
They’ll recommend ways of preventing rodents from accessing your drains: The personnel would gladly give you tips in preventing rats from bothering you again.
They’ll tell you the following tips:
⦁ Rats want to live where they can get food, shelter, and water. Remove these resources to them, and they’ll leave you alone. Therefore, it’s important what you place on your plugholes and how you maintain your drainage.
⦁ Food debris doesn’t escape the ultra-sensitive sense of smell of rats, so try to tie up your garbage as securely as you can.
⦁ Don’t flush sanitary pads, wipes, diapers, and tissues on the toilet, aside from clogging. Rats love the smell and feel of these materials.
