That’s right, more and more we are seeing rats not only invading homes but finding their way into our vehicles. It’s really not surprising, our vehicles have an unlimited number of openings from underneath that easily allow access for small animals. Our homes and vehicles offer many things that they are constantly in search of: food, nesting material, and warm shelter.
Why does it matter? Rats chew constantly and can damage electrical wiring in the home and vehicle. This chewing can start fires or simply stop an item from operating. They carry many types of diseases that are transfered through their droppings. And could you imagine driving to work and seeing a rat in the car? Here’s an AP story linking rats to a car fire.
So what can you do? The best advice would be to hire a pest control professional to create a program that will lower the rat population around your home. Programs should include baiting and trapping, as well as exclusion service. An exclusion service will seal openings on your home to prevent entry. Once you have made your home rodent resistant, poison baits can be placed around the exterior to remove the remaining population. If you are able to park your vehicle inside your garage that would be best, but outside is fine with the proper bait stations in place.
