18 Most Popular Pages on RatControlTips.com Since It’s Launch

As our small, but extremely informative (and most importantly – 100% FREE) rat control website is growing, I decided it would be a good idea to publish the top 18 pages that are getting the most views since the launch of the website. To be honest, I spent almost 1 week writing and tweaking the article for the page which you’ll find at the top of the list. People love my advice ;)

All Content Finally Up!

I’ve been looking forward to this moment for a very long time already. As of today, all the main pages on ratcontroltips.com are officially filled with top-notch content that will definitely help you become more educated on the rat extermination problem. I’ve also implemented some other stuff that I will definitely talk about in this short post.

All Content is Up

Yesterday I managed to add (after working for almost several weeks on writing it!) the Rat Diseases article and also had enough free time to publish the Rat Proofing and Rat Infestation ones.

Also, several readers kept demanding for me to add pictures of black and brown rats and I did it here and here. You’ll get to see some really high quality images of these rodents and also some interesting fact listed below each of them.

New Social Buttons

We also decided to use a slightly different plug-in for social buttons on each page and post since the old one was giving us a pretty bad headache by making the website load slower then usual. I hope you guys like the new buttons and please don’t be shy and start using them at once! LOL

Local Pages are Gone

After a long debate with my web developer we concluded the only way to decrease the load on the database of this website is to get rid of the several thousand pages for various cities and towns in United States and Canada where we initially wanted to list local pest control companies. Well, it looks like WordPress it not really able to handle this job properly and that it requires a lot of DB optimization to have 20-30k pages live on your website so we decided to move forward without it.

From the Web

Browsing online for various type of information (including rat control) should be a pleasant experience filled with plenty of quality recommendations from one website to another. No one really likes getting to a web site only to stumble upon an article with no external references, links and recommendations. That’s why I decided to add a “From the web” module at the end of each informative page so that readers are able to learn more on the topic on their own, from various other high quality sources on the internet.

That’s would be it with the latest tweak to the website in terms of content and functionality. Please let me know in case you guys have any questions or comments or if there is anything I can help you with.


Learn the Basics Module Updated

Just a quick note here to let everyone know we’ve just updated the “Learn the Basics” module on this website (one can easily spot it in the left sidebar). Two awesome and well researched articles have been added: What are Rats & Types of Rats.

You can also check out plenty of high quality images of Black Rats and Brown Rats by click the above links.

Once again, we are eager to remind you that RatControlTips.com is much more than just another pest control website on how to get rid of rats. Our goal is to build the ultimate rat extermination encyclopedia. Stay tuned for more excellent content.


Our Website is Officially Live!


Thanks everyone for your support!

We are proud to officially launch RatControlTips.com, the encyclopedia of rat extermination!

Please make sure you like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, vote for our Google + page, subscribe to our YouTube channel & show your interest in our Pinterest ;-). Social media is one of the easiest way for us to keep you updated with the latest news in the rodent control world!

Here are several of the best pages on this website so far, pages we’ve worked hard on and are very proud of. So go check them out ;-)

1) Rat Exterminators > A well researched, quite in-depth article on everything you ever wanted to know about these guys. Also, if you follow the drop down menu in the navigation bar below this link, you’ll easily be able to locate a licensed exterminator in your area by simply selecting your Country > State > City (or Town). We currently support only USA, but plan to expand and list pest control companies that deal with rodents in all other English speaking countries on this planet. (project temporarily delayed) If you want your company listed on this website, please contact us.

2) DIY Rat Extermination > Ever wanted to learn how you can get rid of rats on your own? This is probably one of the best and to the point guides you’ll stumble upon online. Give it a try and let me know what you think. We tried to uncover the truth about all the old rehashed peppermint oil & cotton moth balls type of rat repellent methods available everywhere on the web these days and present the guide via a slightly different angle. Hope you’re going to like it!

3) How to Get Rid of Rats > Basically there are two main ways one should consider when attempting to get rid of these rodents: humane and inhumane. In this particular article we did our best to shed some light on both of them and attentively compared the pros and cons.

4) Baiting Rats > While it’s a well known fact that rats eat almost everything humans do, finding the right bait to lure these rodents into your trap may seem a little bit easier than it actually is. That’s why we decided to write another 100% free guide on this topic and let people know of almost all currently available options.

5) Rodenticides > The topic of using rat poison to control these creatures has been a pretty controversial one since the appearance of several animal rights organizations all over the world. Nowadays, more than half of all existing rodenticides are banned in United States of America and Europe, the reason being the danger they provide for both humans and pets.

6) Rat Repellents > A really concise follow up of our main Do It Yourself article on rat control, talking mostly about every single particular method, presenting both the pros and cons in a correct and rather objective manner.

7) Rat Traps > Usually, a PhD is not required when trying to kill rats using traps, but still, there are some things most people are not aware of, therefore their attempt to exterminate rats using traps fails. Go through this article to discover what professional pest control experts know and you don’t. Rat traps are still one of the most effective methods of rat control, when done right of course.

8) Is Killing Rats Ethical? > Home owners go crazy when rats infest their property, while animal rights organizations claim people should endure their presence and somehow try harder to get rid of them humanely, without causing any harm… Is this even real? Read this article to find out.

9) Shooting Rats with an Air Rifle > One of the most effective and “entertaining” (at least for some folks) methods to control rats on a property, farm, etc. Do you have an air rifle? Do you have the guts to do it? If you answered “YES!” to both questions, you may be eligible to do it. Go check out our page. We’ve also compiled a nice collection on videos on this topic.

Let me know if you have any questions guys.
