When facing a rat problem you want to take action quickly, but rashly dealing with rat infestations with pesticides or traps can be dangerous! A natural rat deterrent is a safe and effective alternative. Learn how to prevent rats in your home naturally with help from Green Rat Control.
Benefits of Natural Rat Control
Your goal is simple: protect your home and family and keep rats out! It’s tempting to try to take pest control shortcuts to get results, but don’t forget that your family’s safety is your number one priority. That’s why you should only consider natural rat control methods for dealing with rats and mice.
Natural rat deterrent has several benefits over other traditional methods:
- There is little odor, no ammonia smells or harsh airborne chemicals
- It is non-staining, so your furniture and flooring will not be compromised
- Natural pest control of rats is safer for children and pets
- This method is less irritating for people with asthma, allergies, and respiratory challenges
- It is organic and environmentally-friendly

Environmentally and Family Safe Rodent Control
Dealing with a rodent problem on your own can really backfire and put your family in an unsafe position. Rats and mice are known to contaminate food, spread disease, and develop rodent infestations, which can cause serious health risks to you and your family.
DIY rodent control methods such as baits, poisons, and traps are easy to pick up at your local hardware store but are rarely used appropriately by the homeowner. The main problem is that they must be accessible to rats and mice to be effective, which means they are often out in the open and unattended where a curious pet or child can stumble upon it. If you buy a rodenticide that advertises that it will kill rats, imagine what it will do to your family dog!
How to Prevent Rats in the Home Naturally
Green Rat Control can curb rodent activity and help you eliminate your rat problem safely. We have developed a step-by-step process for natural rat deterrent that begins with a home inspection and rodent proofing:
Home Inspection: To effectively remove rat infestations it is essential to search for and locate all of the rodent entry points. This is why inspection is a central part of the approach and is crucial to successfully get rid of mice and rats. Our qualified inspectors perform an inspection of your home to identify all current and potential entry points. They will inspect the lower crawlspace, the attic, the roof, garage, and the entire exterior perimeter. All rodent entry points will be found and a trapping system will be installed in the infested areas. After the inspection is completed, your inspector will fill out a rodent exclusion report and go over the details of the report with you.

Rodent Proofing: After investigating your property, our team will rodent proof your property by sealing up any entry points created by these critters. GRC has a tried and true rodent exclusion method for sealing entry points:
- Fill The Holes: There’s no rocket science here. Once we’ve found the entry point, we fill the holes with steel wool or copper mesh. We make sure to fully extended the product through the length of the hole.
- Seal It Up: next we use caulking and get to work sealing the area around the mesh. We always use the hardware cloth first. Although it might seem easier to just fill a space using caulking alone, we must remember that mice and rats can chew through the stuff like it’s peanut butter, so we fill small holes with steel wool first to deter chewing.
- Use Grout And Broken Glass: This method works best for outdoor foundations and sidewalks. We can patch holes and cracks in your foundation using wet cement mixed with broken glass. The glass will deter rats trying to take advantage of the cement before it dries.
Environmentally and Family Safe Attic Care
You probably haven’t been up to your attic in ages! This important space plays a major part in the heating and cooling of your home, helping to regulate temperature and keep you comfortable. Unfortunately, mice and rats naturally gravitate to your attic insulation. They tunnel and shed within your attic insulation, using it as a nesting ground and ruining it! Everything rodents touch becomes contaminated by their urine and droppings.

A neglected, dirty attic will undoubtedly attract rats and mice. It is the perfect hideout! As they destroy your attic insulation your monthly energy bill will begin to climb. Get ahead of this problem by properly servicing and cleaning your attic regularly.

Our company will rodent proof and decontaminate your attic upon request, leaving it clean, safe, and better than ever. This is an additional specialty of GRC that is not traditionally offered by a pest and rodent control service!
Why Choose Green Rat Control
