About Pest Animal Scranton and Our Services:
The idea of a Scranton rat in your home sends shivers down the spine of most people. Not only are they unsanitary, but they chew through everything in sight. Their incisors never stop growing, and they need to gnaw on hard surfaces in order to keep them short. Most people turn to rat traps to get rid of these unpleasant creatures. However, before you set about killing them you might try to repel them instead. They are wily creatures and are not easily deterred. There are numerous products available that promise they will repel rats, none of them are terribly effective.
If you are willing to give them a try, you might find your guest would rather find a less noxious smelling place.
Smells that repel rats
These are the most widely believed to rid your home of Pennsylvania rats.
· Mothballs. These have always been the go-to product when it comes to repelling pests. They leave everything smelling terrible and seldom repel the pests that they are meant to. The pressing concerns regarding these are that they have been found to possess carcinogenic properties (cause cancer in humans) and they are extremely bad for the environment.
· Ammonia. This strong-smelling liquid can be found in most homes and are typically used to clean bathrooms or kitchen. They are often found to induce headaches in humans but are not proven to keep rats away.
· Peppermint or citronella oil. The only thing that makes people believe this would work is the fact that it has a very strong scent. There is no proof that it indeed works.
· Predator urine. This can be purchased on the internet and is frequently used outside of the home. While it might deter other animals, it is unproven to deter rats. The reason behind this might be that rats are often found living in the vicinity of predators. They don't seem overly worried they will become prey.
· Cat litter has been rumored to be just the thing you need. Scranton rats will think that there is a cat in the house. Because they are naturally afraid of cats, this should keep them away. It does not seem to work as well as is promised.
· Pepper. In particular cayenne pepper. The strong-smelling spice will burn the nostrils and is not a pleasant thing for anybody to inhale. It might just work, you have nothing to lose.
Prevention is better than cure.
When it comes to keeping your Pennsylvania house rat free it works on a case by case basis. There is a reason why all of these scents are rumored to work. They worked for someone. You can try them to see if one works for you. The alternative would be to make sure that there are no openings that allow rats entry to your home. If you do find holes, you can fill them with steel wool and chalk. Rats cannot chew through them. It is easier to deal with it before it becomes a problem.
