Garden & Plant Care : Getting Rid of Rats Without Poison

hi this is yolanda vanveen and in this

segment we're going to talk about how to

get rid of rats without poison if you

have rats you know what a distraction

they can be and how disgusting they can

be and how you want to get rid of them

so the only way to get rid of rats is to

get rid of their food sources and their

places wherever they're making their

nests so if you've got a gap in your

garage where they're coming into the

garage or you have an area underneath

your deck where they're coming into your

deck the only way to get rid of those

rats is to block it off so you got to

actually put kind of a fencing or screen

or block off every part or every area

where they might be nesting and then

you've got to get rid of all the food

sources so if you have a lot of wood in

an area or you've got a garbage area

somewhere where a storage area where the

rats are getting into it make sure get

rid of all those paper boxes and put

everything into plastic because they

can't get into plastic they love paper

boxes and make sure to get rid of all

the garbage all the food sources and

that way you can get rid of the rats and

so another trick to is if they're coming

into area they don't like spices so

cinnamon red hot cream or red hot chili

pepper or anything that's really spicy

if you sprinkle it around that area they

usually won't come closer and so you can

also cage them and put them and move

them to another area and there's all

types of companies out there that'll

come in and actually catch the rats for

you

but in the end if you don't get rid of

those food sources if you don't get rid

of the place where they're nesting

underneath the deck then you're never

going to get rid of those rats more will

come so you get rid of the food you get

rid of the nesting areas and then you

get rid of the rats with that poison
