The Pest Control Company ranked urban areas based on the number of new rodent treatments conducted from September 1
Orkin admitted that due to the closure of restaurants and businesses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, rats have seen an increase in their sight after finding new sources of food.
Orkin said in a press release: “There is no need to consume food waste. These pests have been found to clear new areas and exhibit unusual or aggressive behavior.”
As a result, the CDC issued A guide on how to keep rats and mice out.
Orkin believes that as the weather gets colder, rodent activity may increase, and warmer areas will become targets for refuge.
Orkin suggests the following tips to help prevent rats in and around the house:
- Don’t miss the food. Crumbs and garbage, as well as dry goods such as grains and grains, are common food sources. These should be kept in sealed metal or glass containers to prevent contamination.
- Avoid spatial confusion. It turns out that cardboard items are attractive to rodents because they tend to chew them for use in the nest. Use your extra time at home to clean and tidy up the crowded spaces around the house.
- Don’t let the beautification go crazy. The tall grass has enough space, such as the wooden stakes next to the house, which is an ideal habitat for rodents. Branches in contact with the house can also allow rodents to easily enter the upper floors of the house, where they may enter the attic.
- Check the interior and exterior of the house for rodent droppings, burrows and scratches on the skirting and walls. The sooner rodents are found, the better.
- Look for possible entry points outside your house and seal cracks and holes (if found). Install windshields at the entrance (especially under the door) to help prevent rodents from entering the interior.
