How to Eliminate Rodents in Your Yard & Neighborhood

Rats and other rodents can be a problem in any neighborhood. They can contaminate food and spread disease, they can start fires by gnawing on electrical wires, and they can destroy property and possessions.

Rodents can be detected by their droppings, rub and gnaw marks, or burrows and tracks. Rodents need a place to live and food to eat. They prefer to live within 150 feet of their food source. If you remove their shelter and food, they can be eliminated. But the best way to beat a rodent problem is through prevention.

Find out more information about how you can prevent rodent infestations.
