Newton Rat Control
Using integrated approaches to deal with rats will lead to successful population management. This technique is known as integrated pest management. It involves not relying on one approach, but instead using multiple approaches to deal with rats. Every location will have site specific opportunities. For example a dumpster area needs attention by people to avoid undue attention from rats. A solid pad, a solid dumpster (not rusted through on the bottom), doors and lids that shut and, most important, smart dumpster users. Smart dumpster users shut the lids and doors, clean up debris that falls around the dumpster and do not allow material to overflow. A parking lot needs to be free of trash and brush and weeds that leads to rodent harborage. Rats need a drink of water every day. Controlling or limiting access to water will keep rats out of the interior of facilities.
