How to prevent rats and mice
These are some ways you can try to prevent rats and mice:
- try to eliminate any sources of food, water and shelter e.g. open storage of food, bird food or pet food. If you like to feed the birds try using a rat proof table or container
- check to ensure rats and mice cannot enter your property, e.g. through gaps under doors or around pipes
- compost bins should be fully enclosed and fitted with 6mm galvanised wire mesh to the base before placing it on the ground. This will prevent rats and mice tunnelling into your bin. Use your compost bin only for vegetable matter
- ensure your dustbin has a properly fitting lid and that all refuse is properly disposed of
