Even the thought of needing to call a rodent exterminator strikes fear in the heart of the average person. Homes and buildings can easily fall victim to wild animals and other mammal pests like rats and mice. Although rodents are a naturally occurring pest in just about every environment, they can be very difficult to deal with on a daily basis. In the event that you think you have an infestation of rodents, it’s important that you take the necessary steps to control the infestation before it becomes worse.
Our Rodent Exterminator Will Find the Source
The first thing our rodent exterminator will need to do is find where the rats or rodents are gaining access to your home, and where they’re nesting. He’ll also discover if you have an isolated problem, or if you have a real rodent infestation. Typically, you will see holes chewed in your baseboards, in the attic, or in your walls where they are in close proximity to the ground. It’s also common for homeowners to see evidence of rat or mouse droppings near the rodents entry points.
Buying DIY Rodent Extermination Products
Most homeowners like the idea of dealing with a small amount of rodents on their own. This is why home improvement and big box stores typically carry a wide selection of DIY rodent exterminator products.
First, there is rat poison which is not safe for children or pets. It’s also not recommended for individuals who have no experience working with pesticides and other types of rodent poison.
Next, you have the typical spring-loaded mousetraps which are designed to kill rodents as they try to steal food from the traps. These generic spring-loaded traps can be bought in bulk and are easy to use (minus the occasional lost fingernail – BE CAREFUL!).
Then we have glue traps that work like fly paper. Rodents stick to the board and inhumanly die from lack of food and water.
There are also “pest-friendly traps” that simply capture the rodents so they can be removed from your home and released elsewhere. The pest-friendly traps can be a bad idea as the rodents just invade elsewhere and infest other homes.
