How to Get Rid Of Rats in Yard


Rats become the bane of our existence with their nosy habits and invasive attitude. If you think your roommate is impossible, wait till you get rats as roommates. Everyone who is suffering from rat issues will back us on this.

Rats are not nice. It is as simple as that. Humans and rats are just not made to co-exist in the same space, and under one roof. Someone needs to fold and considering the fact that it is your house, your territory, and you are, after all the more progressive creature of the two, it must be the rats.

The rats need the boot, but first you need to get to know your nemesis better.

What We Need To Know About the Rats in Our House

Most people like to ignore the presence of the rats, saying that they are completely harmless. Well, they couldn’t be more wrong.

To begin with, Rats alone carry at least 60 communicable diseases on their back, and some of them as risky as Hantavirus, typhus, leptospirosis, and meningitis. Another bad habit of the rats is that they can bite through wires, pipes, food and just anything, even human skin, so don’t be surprised when you wake up to someone (or something) tearing your skin apart. And as for your yards, don’t think the foliage and plants that you grew so lovingly are safe from their wrath. These rats will stop at nothing, until they had chewed down all your prized possessions.

If those are not enough reasons to kick the rats out of your house and your yard, then we don’t know what is. Besides you cannot trust a furry, fuzzy creature that refuses to flush down the toilet and is the proud possessor of belly buttons.

  • Use the Detour Rodent Repellent to keep the rats as far away from your yard as possible. This magical solution repels and deters the rodents with its active ingredient, white pepper. The fumes from Detour repellant irritate the sensory nerve endings of the rats and they end up running away. This repellent also keeps them from returning, congregating or causing any damage to your yards.

  • Seal all the gaps, holes and cracks and other unnecessary openings around and within the house. You can use copper mesh or caulks to do the job.

  • You must de-clutter your garages, homes and yard. Clutter provides rats with good hiding places.

  • Make sure to keep your trash cans properly sealed and covered. Rats are enticed by anything that is disgusting, and the garbage cans are their favorite.

  • Even if you don’t have rats in your yard, make sure to occasionally set a trap or place a bait stations outdoors. This will take care of the occasional rats that will stroll past your house.
