In Goa, officials ignore mosquitoes in lakes, creeks, harass home owners for water in pots

It is a well known fact that the lakes,ponds and creeks are used by mosquitoes for breeding worldwide. For example, anyone walking around Powai lake,in Mumbai, would often be completely surrounded by a swarm of mosquitoes which are visible to everyone
Yet in a clear case of misplaced priorities, the officials in panaji, goa are ignoring the fact that mosquitoes breeding in lakes and creeks in Panaji, are the most likely source of dengue causing mosquitoes, and harassing home owners, insisting on inspecting their home, falsely claiming that the mosquitoes are breeding in the water in the pots for plants

There is very less water in a plant pot and it evaporates in a few days, so the mosquito larvae cannot flourish, when the water evaporates, they also die . Yet the officials are insisting on inspecting the terrace of homes , which is a clear case of invasion of privacy

How to get rid of rats

If the rats are entering the house from outside, the entry points in the property should be closed with the right material, because rats can eat wood.

The agency hired to get rid of rats will also have to select the most appropriate way to eliminate them. There are many ways of getting rid of rats like rat poison, glue traps, metal cage traps and the effectiveness of these methods will vary to a very great extent. Usually in families with pets and small children, using poison is very risky, so other methods have to be used. Metal cage traps are often not very effective for catching the rats as the rat may not enter the cage. Glue traps for rats may catch some of the rats, however the right size should be selected , because larger rats may be able to break free if they are trapped in smaller traps.

Damage caused by rats, rat control services

Many home and business owners are looking for reliable services providers who offer rat control , to get rid of the existing rats in the home safely and also ensure that the rats do not enter the home in future due to a number of reasons. Rats can create many problems for home owners, like eating food, damaging furniture, killing plants and other items . They can also spread many diseases like plague . If rats are not eliminated immediately after they are detected, they can multiple rapidly, creating major problems for the home owner as the home will be flooded with rats.

Since most of the rats are only active at night, the pest control service provider will first have to find the number of rats in the house, whether they are living in the house or property or entering the house at night from outside. In case of a large property, especially storage areas with a large number of items, finding the hiding areas of the rat can be fairly time consuming.

Some of the rats are entering the house through the holes in the floor while others enter through the open windows.
