If you suspect that you may be experiencing the early stages of a rat infestation. Then follow these simple steps.
1. Do not touch, move, clean or block anything unless absolutely necessary. Just like a crime scene, the initial attack will leave behind crucial information that will determine and simplify how the rodent entered your home in the first place.
2. CONTACT PEST CONTROL SERVICES IMMEDIATELY, if they cannot attend within 24 hours or you have already decided to do DIY, then take photos of the area now.
3. You can now clear away the debris and clean the area using bleach and disinfectant, MAKING SURE TO WEAR GLOVES.
4. Follow the instructions carefully when using pest control products, especially poison.
