How to keep Bandicoot Rats away
The first defence against a bandicoot rat entering your home or an infestation by them is to proof your home. Ensure there are no gaps around windows or doors that bandicoots can get through and if necessary fill these with bristle strip.
It is important not to attract bandicoot rats with food – store food in plastic or metal containers and regularly clean under cookers and fridges.
Outdoors, ensure household refuse is kept in closed bins, do not put meat into compost heaps and use squirrel-proof bird feeders.
