- Removing their food source
Garbage provides food and shelter for many unwanted organisms, as well as an area where still water might collect and be used as a breeding ground by mosquitoes. Communities that have proper garbage collection and disposal, have far less of a problem with rats, cockroaches, mosquitoes, flies and other pests than those that don’t.
Open air sewers are ample breeding ground for various pests as well. By building and maintaining a proper sewer system, this problem is eliminated.
- Chemical Poisons
Poisoned bait is a common method for controlling rat populations, however is not as effective when there are other food sources around, such as garbage. Poisoned meats have been used for centuries for killing off wolves, birds that were seen as a threat to crops, and against other creatures that can do harm to your home or yard.
This can be a problem, since a carcass that has been poisoned will kill not only the targeted animal, but also every other animal, which feeds on the carcass. Humans have also been killed by coming in contact with poisoned meat, or by eating an animal that had fed on a poisoned carcass.
