Residents can help reduce the risks of rodent infestation by:
• Not leaving food out for wild birds and other animals, as this provides a food source and may attract rodents to your property.
• Reducing potential nesting sites by keeping gardens as clean and tidy as possible and aiming to cutting back overgrown areas.
• Compost bins can be a warm comfortable environment for rats. Place your compost bin on a hard standing or on a strong mesh and make sure the door fits correctly.
• If you keep animals such as rabbits or chickens in your garden, store their food in steel bins and only give them enough food for one sitting. Remove any surplus food before sunset.
• Keep your home in good repair so rodents cannot gain entry, ensure there are no gaps under doors/windows (including garage doors). Any cracks/gaps around pipes should be filled.
• Decking provides great homes for rats so where possible make sure litter doesn’t accumulate underneath and check for signs of digging.
• Ensure drain covers and air bricks are in place and undamaged.
• Store household waste appropriately in bins or sealed bags and try to avoid leaving food waste exposed.
