Combatting Rats

FAIRFAX, Va. (June 4, 2014) –  Rats are pests that are not afraid to leave the safety of their den to seek out food in trashcans, garages or pantries.

To combat an infestation of rats, towns and cities across the country are putting task forces in place to directly eliminate infestations in areas where homeowners are having the most trouble with these pests.

Rats can fit through holes the size of a quarter, so homeowners should seal any cracks and voids in homes, sheds and garages. Homeowners can also incorporate other pest proofing steps into their home maintenance routines to keep rats and other rodents out.
