What Wenham Property Owners Need To Know About Rat Control

There is a reason rats come onto your property and get into the structures on your property. Some of them may surprise you.

  • Rats have poor eyesight. They must use their other senses in order to navigate. One of the senses they use quite a bit is their ability to feel objects around them with their whiskers and body hair. A property that has lots of clutter and piles of debris will be attractive to rats.

  • Rats are thigmotactic. Filling a hole with caulking material can be enough to keep rats out even though they can easily chew through.

  • Rats run along branches and jump onto roofs. Trim branches to prevent this.

  • Rats can climb up through downspouts and shinny up walls using exterior pipes. Use protective materials to prevent this.

  • Rats hide in vegetation. Trim the base of your plants to make rats feel more exposed.

When you alter conditions that invite rat problems, you have fewer rat problems. If rat pressures are high, contact Freedom Pest Control for rat management in Wenham.

Ant Prevention Tips Wenham Residents Should Know

When ants explore the perimeter around the structures on your property, they're looking for food sources. If they find them, they're going to create nests close to these sources and close to these structures.

When ants get inside, they'll do the same thing. It is essential to control food sources if you want to keep ants out and away from your home or business. Here are some examples:

  • Nectar - Address flowering weed problems.

  • Honeydew - Address aphids, whiteflies, and scale insects as quickly as possible.

  • Sugar water - If you have a hummingbird feeder, put it well away from your exterior.

  • Trash - Keep trash receptacles as clean as possible. Ants can be attracted by the scent of rotting organic matter from a distance.

  • Sanitation - Keep your home as clean as possible. Food particles in your home make ants want to live with you. Be sure to also keep an eye out for other ways ants might get a bite to eat, such as a banana peel in a waste paper basket, an apple core left by a child in an unexpected place, or pet food.

Along with controlling food sources, be sure to seal entry points in your exterior to help prevent ants from getting inside. If more control is needed, reach out to Freedom Pest Control for targeted ant colony control.
