Se debarrasser des rats et des souris
Si vous avez une invasion de rats ou souris dans la maison, il est important d’identifier le rongeur pour mieux agir. Les rongeurs sont dangereux par leur malgre, parfois tres fatal (hantavirus, salmonellose).
Infected by their own germs, rats and souris can cause a lot of harm to your family or pets. They can also spread a number of bacterial infections, such as the salmonellose or typhoide virus, among others.
Besides, they can also contaminate your food, and it is not unusual for their excrements to find their way inside of your house.
Rats et souris are nocturnes, which means they tend to be attracted to dingy and damp areas, such as garages or caves. This is why it is a good idea to keep your home tidy, and always dispose of any open food and drinks in sealed containers.
You can also keep your pet away from areas where rongeurs are likely to roam, as this will help to prevent them from coming into contact with these animals.
For the most part, rats and souris can be controlled with rodenticides and traps. But if you have an infestation that is becoming serious, it is a good idea to seek professional assistance for the best possible results.
There are a number of rat and souris eradication techniques, each suited to a different type of infestation. Some of these techniques involve placing baits in the area, while others require you to exterminate all rongeurs using a specialized tool.
To get rid of a rat infestation, it is best to use a combination of methods that work together. Depending on the type of infestation, you may need to combine trapping, poisoning and removing food and other sources of sustenance.
First, place a wire mesh in all your closets and cupboards. This will prevent rat and souris from entering the closets. You can then fill the baskets with a strong smelling substance, such as soapy water or garlic juice, to draw them away from the closets.
Alternatively, a scented wax may also be an effective way to control these pests. You can buy it in any home improvement store, or you can make your own by melting a few sticks of wax with a little molasses or cooking oil.
Another rat and souris eradication technique involves the use of anti-nuisible agents that target rats’ nervous system. This will reduce their ability to communicate and lead them to die.
You can also spray a liquid repellent in the areas where rats and souris are living, such as near your chimney or vent. This will entice the animals to seek a different habitat, and it will also discourage them from feeding on your garbage.
The odorless anti-nuisible agent you can purchase at most hardware stores will also work well on other types of pests, such as mice and moles. Just remember that they should not be sprayed in the vicinity of children and pets.
