5 Ways To Make Your Property LESS Attractive to Rodents


1. TIGHT LIDS
Make sure all bins containing rubbish or waste have a properly secured
lid. Rodents will exploit any openings or gaps.




2. MIND THE GAP
Look around the outside of your property, garage and shed for gaps
and holes – FILL ANY GAPS. Key areas to look – pipe work, drains and
doors. (FACT - Mice will fit through a hole the width of a pencil.)




3. DON’T BLAME THE BIRDS
Many people like to feed the birds (it’s a nice thing to do). Any “feed” is
a good source of food for rats and squirrels. If you do want to feed the
birds use a "closed" bird feeder and keep it off the ground.





4. LOVE THE COMPOST
This is a favourite area for rats. Stand your compost bin on a hard
surface (a complete slab) or a strong wire mesh. This will stop rats from
digging into the compost.




5. USE A PROFESSIONAL
Give your local expert a call. Look out for the BPCA accreditation as a
sign of a good pest controller.
