Preventing rat infestation in Jamaica

Health Tips Ja Rat i
It is very important to understand the ways in which you can prevent rat infestation.
Food should be stored in sealed containers, to minimise smells that will attract the rats. Be careful about your solid waste, rubbish bins that contain leftover meat and cooked food will attract rats.This happens more when the food starts to rot, bag everything up carefully and put it in strong bins, such as a plastic wheel bins.Don't put meat, fish or cooked food on a compost heap. Not only is it no good for your compost, it will also turn the heap into an inviting home for the rats. The combination of warmth from the composting process, plus an easy food supply, will be irresistible to them. Rats are also interested in finding bedding materials and places to build a nest.
They will look for hidden corners and dark places away from too much noise and movement. Like us, they enjoy being outside during the summer but when winter approaches they'll want to find a warm spot to curl up in. One of the main reasons one should take rat infestation seriously is due to a dangerous desease called Leptospirosis.
This is a notifiable disease, and with more and more rats carrying this killer disease, it is little wonder that it ranks as one of the top diseases which rats carry. This is spread from rats to humans via the rat’s urine this disease proves fatal to people young and old throughout the world every year, so it should not be underestimated. It is a virulent organism, surviving in homes and outdoor spaces - remaining infectious for months. A single adult rat will produce litres of urine and Kilos of faeces, deposited inside and out every year, and with your average colony size between 5 and 12 strong, it is easy to see why rats in residential or other infested, occupied premises, can succumb to what become, significant contamination levels. The disease starts innocently enough, presenting as a mild case of flue 3 – 30 days after infection, but quickly develops causing internal haemorrhage and multi organ failure. some information was gathered from www.thebristolratcompany.co.uk

Rat can be found anywhere at any place. We need to protect our foot out of the reach of rats. We can use different techniques to prevent from rat infestation. We can make a nest to catch the rats and can use special medicines also to kill the rat.
