Newsday Asks Our Pest Control Experts
Suburban Exterminating was recently interviewed by Newsday to provide expert advice on pest control. In the Homework Section, the article “Keep the Rats Out” gives homeowner’s information on signs of rats and prevention tips.
One of our experts, Bob Wiemer, General Manager at Suburban Exterminating, gave this advice.
You can spot rats by looking for their droppings around your garage cans. Rat borrows are small holes one to four inches wide with smooth exits. Rats create runways – they leave a greasy trail in the places they frequent. Rats also like to gnaw. Is your garbage can “chewed”?
Homeowners can prevent rats by cleaning up. You know – your garbage can area, that cluttered basement and a messy yard. Rats love to be feed and they will eat your dog’s food, bird food and any other tasty snacks. Keep plants off your home’s foundation and plug up any holes into your home. Of course, your neighbors have rats too! Give them a call!
