Environmentally Friendly Pest Control – Rats

Question:

I have a small compost bin in my yard, I went to put some vegetable waste inside and out came a rat, now I am frightened to use it, what can I do?

Answer:

Rats usually don’t go into compost bins unless there’s something for them to eat, usually meat.

Make sure there’s no meat or non vegetable foodstuffs in the compost pile.

If you are scared, make a noise before opening the lid and use the bin only during the day. Rats are nocturnal. If you regularly see them in daylight you may have a bigger problem. Before it gets out of hand call me.
