Get Rid Of Garden Rats
Rats can be a major annoyance to those who keep their garden on their properties. Getting rid of rats in the garden often starts with ensuring that you do not have items lying around that will attract them, such as rotting fruit, or compost that contains food. To protect your plants and trees from the nibbles of rats, consider making a small fence around them while also removing any areas that rodents may be tempted to hide in. Rat repellent should also work to scare them away, as it typically smells like the predators that commonly threaten them. One free, fast method of eliminating rats in the garden is to tidy it up, picking up fallen vegetables and fruits, since these may attract hungry rats. While putting compost in the garden is a popular way to help it grow, the kind that contains food scraps can attract rodents.
For this reason, you should consider only using yard clippings in your compost, such as leaves, rather than garbage. While you are making these changes to get rid of rats in the garden, make sure to remove any sources of water that may attract them, as well. Once they do not have easy access to food and water, they may be encouraged to leave your garden alone.
