    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.

    Don’t let rats invade your home.

    Both rats and mice can cause major destruction to your home. Clear the Air would like to share some tips to avoid a rat infestation in your home.

    First you need to check to see if you have rats. Look to see if you see mouse or rat droppings. In your yard, you can check weedy places, under boards and dog houses or near garbage cans to see if a rat has made a burrow or nest. Also any holes or edges around your home and yard with chewed edges are sure signs of a rat or mouse.

    Rats and mice breed fast. A mouse can have several young when she’s two months old. Then, two months later, her young will breed. In the meantime, the mother will produce another litter. So you must keep working to get rid of them. Here are some tips to keeping them out of your property:

    • Keep garbage in tightly covered cans. Feed dogs and cats in a dish, then take up the food they don’t eat. Don’t leave it out for rats and mice.
    • Remove trash, old boards, weeds and junk cars. Rats and mice like to hide in such places. Don’t pile wood against the house. Store wood and other materials at least a foot off the ground.
    • Keep doors closed. Cover windows with screens. One-fourth inch or smaller mesh will keep rats and mice out. Keep floor drains tightly sealed. Cement or caulk around pipes and cables where they pass through walls. Mice can get through any hole that will admit the tip of your little finger.
    • If you use poison or a trap to kill your rats, chances are the rat will die in the wall of your home. This can cause a horrendous odor and thankfully Clear the Air has an easy solution to rid your home of that dead rat odor. Click here to learn more about eliminating dead rodent odor.
    • Birdhouses and seed should be on poles and in trays rats can’t get.
    • Roof rats get into your house from tree branches that hang over the roof. Keep trees cut back and cover any openings in the eves.

    Do you have a problem with rats infesting your home?

    Maybe it has only happened once and the problem was taken care of.  It is important, however, to make sure you take continuous precautionary measures to ensure rats do not become a nuisance in your home again.

    If you have a rat die in the walls of your home, the odor can be overwhelming to say the least.  Instead of having to get into the walls of your home to remove the dead carcass, simply hang one or two of our Clear The Air Odor Remover Bags in your home and the odor will be eliminated.  It truly is that easy, guaranteed!

    Get familiar with these pests so you are able to know what to do to prevent infestation.  Read below to find out what type of food and housing they are attracted to and how to keep them out:

    Where do rats live outside?

    • Under wood piles or lumber that is not being used often
    • Under bushes, vines and in tall grasses that are not trimmed or cut back
    • Under rocks in the garden
    • In cars, appliances and furniture that has been put outside and is no longer being used
    • In and around trash and garbage that has been left on the ground
    • In holes under buildings

    Where do rats live inside?

    • In the insulation of walls or ceilings
    • Inside the crawl spaces
    • Behind or under cupboards, counters, bathtubs and shower stalls
    • Near hot water heaters and furnaces
    • In basements, attics and wherever things are stored in boxes, paper or cloth

    What types of food bring rats into my yard and neighborhood?

    • Garbage that rats can get into, like garbage cans with loose lids, plastic or paper bags, and litter.
    • Food for pets and birds that has not been eaten. Birdseed on the ground, pet food in pet dishes, bread crumbs, etc.
    • Fruits and berries that have fallen to the ground.
    • Compost pile or worm bin that isn’t taken care of the right way (do not put meat, fish, poultry, or dairy in the compost)
    • Dog droppings

    What food do rats eat once they are inside the house?

    • Foods, fats, oils that have been spilled and left on counters, floors, appliances and tables
    • Grains, like cereal, oats, rice and vegetables like potatoes and carrots that are in cardboard boxes and plastic bags
    • Pet food in boxes or bags
    • Any garbage that is not in a can with a tight lid

    How to keep rats away from your home:

    • First of all, do not give food and shelter to these unwanted guests.
    • The time to act is before the signs (droppings) of a rat or mouse.
    • Stack fire wood 18 inches off the ground and away from all buildings.
    • Birdhouses and seed should be on poles and in trays rats can’t get.
    • Keep garbage can lids closed tightly.
    • Plant bushes so they will stay at least 3 feet from your house.
    • Keep yards and alleys clean. Take junk to the dump!
    • If you feed them, they will stay. Pick up fruit and vegetables in your yard.
    • Do not compost any animal products (fish, meat, chicken, cheese, butter). Keep lids tight.
    • Use only rodent resistant composters.
    • In basements keep any food in closed containers that rats can’t chew through.
    • Cover all openings to your house. Rats can get into very small places.
    • Do not leave your pet food outside. If your pet doesn’t eat it, the rats will.
    • Roof rats get into your house from tree branches that hang over the roof. Keep trees cut back and cover any openings in the eves.
