    Unfortunately wherever you live, rats and mice are present.

    Our product works wonders on dead rat odor anywhere in your home and exterminators across the world use our product. Check out our tips to keep rats and mice out of your home.

    How do you know if you have rats or mice:

    • You will notice droppings in your home or garage.
    • Sprinkle powder around the floor or anywhere you suspect rats, put a piece of food in the middle and see if you see tracks the next day from rats or mice.
    • Check your pantry for holes or chewed edges on food packages. Also shredded paper or tooth marks are a good indication you have rats or mice.
    • Listen for scratching in walls or attics especially at night.

    In order to avoid having rats or mice invade your home and wreak havoc, you should follow these helpful tips:

    • Keep garbage can lids tightly covered. Feed dogs and cats in a dish and take up the food they don’t eat. Don’t leave any reason for rats and mice to visit your yard.
    • Don’t provide hiding spaces for rats or mice. Pull weeds, remove trash and any sort of junk you may have in your yard. You should also store wood and other materials a foot off the ground and never up against the house.
    • Keep any entryways to your home closed up with screens and make sure the screens do not have holes in them. Mice can get through the tiniest of holes. Caulk or cement around pipes and cables where they can pass through walls.
    • You can use poison or bait traps in your home. Put them in along the walls or cupboards where mice might get in. Remember to keep Clear The Air Odor Eliminator Bags handy if a rat or mouse dies behind a wall or inaccessible area.

    At last some good news for New Yorkers: Thousands of RATS may have drowned in superstorm as water swept into city’s tunnels.  By Louise Boyle

    In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, fears were rife that the streets would be overrun with rats escaping the flooded tunnels and subways.

    But it now looks as if those fears may have been groundless as there have not, as yet, been any reports of rodents roaming the streets.

    Experts are saying the water likely rushed into tunnels so fast that the rats – despite being strong swimmers – had no time to escape and died.

    Sam Miller, a spokesman for the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, told Forbes the city has not seen an increase in rats above ground caused by Sandy, adding that while flooding normally does drive them to the streets, it ‘also drowns young rats in their burrows and can reduce the rat population’.

    Rodentologist Robert Corrigan, who works with the city on keeping populations under control, told LiveScience that baby rats will likely die unless they are carried to safety by their mothers.

    Another expert, Herwig Leirs, a rodentologist at the University of Antwerp in Belgium, confirmed that most would drown.

    ‘Rats will be carried away by the current and won’t be strong enough to swim to the surface and breathe, or they’ll be pushed to grates, they will get stuck there and they won’t be strong enough to swim against the current,’ he said.

    However, the rats that are able to survive the floodwaters will be treated to a surge of garbage and food to feast on once things have dried out.

    According to NBC, approximately 28 million rats live in the subway tunnels of New York. Whether they pose a health risk in the aftermath of the hurricane depends how quickly the water evaporates and how quickly subway crews can clean out the tunnels.

    Rick Ostfeld of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Milbrook, New York, earlier told The Huffington Post that if rats were forced out of their lairs, this could result in a rise in infectious diseases carried by urban rodents, including leptospirosis, hantavirus, typhus, salmonella, and even the plague.
