Rats and mice can be some of the most significant pests we have to deal with. They will continuously attempt to co-exist with us in just about every building we live, eat, and work in. Rodents have been known to carry and transmit diseases, damage, and destroy our buildings, electrical wires, and water lines through their gnawing. Most people have a greater fear of rats and mice than they do of spiders. This fear can make you, your employees, or customers extremely uncomfortable.
When there is evidence of rodent activity limited to the outside of your home, bait stations are a great tool to keep populations down. By reducing the number of rats and mice outside, you reduce the chances of them making their way inside. We will suggest the number of bait stations to be anchored down around your home. Once in place, we will monitor their activity on a regular basis and keep a fresh supply of bait for them to consume.
A great way to help prevent rats and mice from getting into your home is by locating their entry points and blocking their access. Rodents can find and squeeze through the smallest cracks. Rats can squeeze through a hole as small as a quarter, and mice can squeeze through a hole as small as a nickel. If the hole is too small, they can usually gnaw their way to a larger opening. By using the proper materials, they can be denied access to your home.
If they have already made their way inside or if the infestation is large enough, we will use traps.Traps enable us to remove rodents from your home or business physically. Using bait to kill rodents inside can lead to dead rats or mice left to decompose in hard to reach places. Traps can also act as an indicator to determine if any rodents are still in the area being treated.
