To get rid of rats in the garden, there are several effective methods that you can use.
Remove potential food sources
One of the first things you should do is remove potential food sources. Rats are attracted to food, so cleaning up any fallen fruits or vegetables, and storing your compost in a secure container can help deter them.
Keep your garden tidy and free of debris
Keeping your garden tidy and free of debris is also important. Rats like to hide in cluttered areas, so keeping your garden well-maintained can help discourage them from taking up residence. You should also check your garden for any holes or gaps that rats could use to enter and seal them up with wire mesh or other appropriate materials.
Traps can be an effective way to capture rats in the garden. Rat cages can be used if you want to release the rats elsewhere. You can use lethal traps if you want to eliminate them. There are also several natural deterrents that can help keep rats away, such as peppermint oil, vinegar, and garlic.
If you have a severe rat infestation in your garden, it may be necessary to hire a pest control professional to deal with the problem. They can use more advanced techniques and tools to eliminate the rats safely and effectively.
