Why Should You Not Fix Your Rodent Problem On Your Own?

 In Pest Control

Rodent infestation is probably the worst things that can happen to your house. When we talk about rodents, we are not just talking about mice. This includes rats, rabbits and other pests like squirrels. You may also be wondering how they got into your home. For now, we will focus on rats and mice, and we will show you why fixing this infestation on your own is not worth it and why you should hire an exterminator to do the job instead of you.

The internet is full of DIY pest control experts. The thing is, not all of their methods truly work. Although there are many valuable resources online written by many rat and rodent experts, most of the information on fixing rodent problem is provides by untrained individuals, that is why most online methods will not work for rodents. As a result, the infestation becomes much worse.

Monitoring rodents is a constant and scheduled activity. Most people who fix their own rodent problems do not do this. They set traps, visit them and feel happy once they caught a mice or a rat. And then they move on to their daily grind. On the other hand, professional exterminators use a lot of techniques to detect mice infestation, even if you do not see any rat or mice in your house. If you do not use these techniques, the mice will multiply very fast, and before you know it, they are back in huge numbers residing inside your property.

Traps are not created equal. There are certain traps designed for a specific rodent, and there are traps designed for specific places. Professional pest control service technicians know this, and they only use the right traps and the right baits in the right places that will actually work.

If you use the wrong trap for a type of rodent, you will not succeed in capturing them. Pest control professional exterminators went through intensive training to understand what works, and they also ensure that they only use methods that do not affect the environment around it.

So, what should you do if you have rodents?

The first thing you have to do is to call a mice removal service company such as www.maximumpestcontrol.ca and ask them to perform an inspection on your property for any access points of entry. Most of these inspection call visits are sometimes free, and the rodents consultation is also free for a qualified quotation.

The correct approach that works is laid out below: 

  • Inspection is done by trained qualified professional exterminators
  • Exclusion techniques where the rats and the mice cannot go back to your property. If a mouse was already taken out, there should be no other access points room for others to get in. What this means is that the professional mice removal will use exclusion working methods to block the holes such as caulking, copper wires, or concrete.
  • Use of tamper-proof bait stations. These are specific traps that are specifically designed for the type of rodent that infested your house or business. And since the baits they are tamper-proof, no one can tinker with it and touch the inside baits. This is important as anyone touching bait can pass his smell to the bait. If the rats smell your hands on it, it will not work properly.
  • Continuous inspection of the property. An expert rodent control will come back a month later to visit and look for signs of infestation such as droppings and food spills in specific areas in your house as well as re-bait if required.
