What causes rats & other rodents to enter your house?
- Warmth and comfort: Rats enter homes for the same reasons as any other animal: food, water, and shelter,” Cox says. Rats and other rodents are warm-blooded animals, so seeking a warm place to nest is a natural instinct.
Food—all types of food: Rats aren’t picky eaters. Milk, meat, veggies, soap, leather, fur—it’s all good to them. This explains why the first thing that attracts rats to a house is garbage bins, if they are not well-covered with lids. If you have any unsecured food in your home such as bags of pet food, birdseed, or even grass seed— rats will sniff it out.
Pet waste and compost: As rats are attracted to all types of food, they’re attracted to digested food, too. Your pile of compost or yard littered with dog waste is a buffet to them.
Dripping pipes: Rats need a daily source of water, and if they can’t find it outside, they will be attracted to indoor sources. Have a small leak in a pipe somewhere? Or drippy sprinkler heads, pet water bowls you keep outside, or even a birdbath? Rats will see a watering hole—and stick around for the easy hydration.
Easy access: If you have a hole or crack in your home that’s larger than a half-inch, a rat can squeeze itself through. They can also climb trees, making this a common way for them to access your attic. Roof soffits and vents are other clever ways for rats to come into your house.
Indoor plants: Indoor fruit plants and nut trees are attractive to rats, especially roof rats, who will seek out fruit.Rats often take advantage of large, potted plants as a safe spot indoors.
