Rat Control

Rat Control Virginia Beach

Rat control is an important aspect in keeping your home pest free. Rat problems are becoming more common, particularly in Virginia Beach Va.

Not only will you have to deal with pest droppings and possible rodent bites, but rat infestations can cause additional health problems like leptospirosis (Weil’s disease). Rat damage to structures can be costly too; rodents will chew through building materials like insulation, water lines, cables; if they get into the walls they can gnaw on structural beams and electrical wiring.


Rats are attracted to enclosed spaces because it protects them from predators like cats and raccoons. Rat control methods should target any potential entry points around your property. Along buildings, gaps under doors should be caulked to prevent rodent entry. Rat control should be conducted in winter and early spring when rats are most active and seek shelter.


To find every possible entry point that the rats may use, you should walk around your property with a flashlight at night (to see if they run away from light source). Rats will leave evidence of their presence; look for rat droppings and chew marks on food or anything made of wood. You can also follow them back to where they came from, like garbage cans or dumpsters where they store food.

Rat control ideas include:

– Covering openings with hardware cloth (see image below) – Rats cannot chew through this material; make sure it is buried around 12 inches deep so rodents cannot burrow under.

– Rat traps can be used on rats that are already inside your home. Snap traps and glue traps are cheap and readily available; although traps can kill many rats, some will escape. Rat poisons work by causing internal bleeding and organ rupture but they require time to poison the rat (days or weeks). Rat control with poisons is difficult because you must get all of the affected rat(s) inside your home; another option is to put out poison bait boxes outside around your house.

– Repellents like Rat Away may also help repel rodents from entry points like doors, vents or other openings. More importantly, repellents prevent new rodents from coming in after an infestation has been eliminated. Some repellents contain castor oil which has a strong smell rats don’t like while others use chemical odors.
