Rodent control can be accomplished in a variety of ways, including traps, poison, and traps. Rodents are very clever and can hide and destroy a wide variety of household items before you even know they are there. Rodent control is important because many pests cannot survive in controlled environments. Rodents can carry diseases that are harmful to humans and pets.
Rodent Control Methods
Rodent control methods include baiting systems, rodenticides, and rodent control products. Bait is placed around the perimeter of the rodent infestation to trap the rodent population. Baits are usually shaped like cheese or chocolates but can be any food that the rodent has an interest in. Place bait in rodent-proof containers and hooks throughout the house. This will ensure that rodent control will work as intended.
Rodenticides are poisonous and kill mice instantly. Rodent control products kill mice and rats instantly. Rodent control products can be placed on rodent-proof food sources and rodent-infested areas and will destroy any mice or rats that come into contact with them. These products must be used immediately upon detection of a rodent infestation and then daily to ensure effectiveness.
Rodenticides are applied to rodent control areas using a rodenticide collar. The collar is placed around the neck and shoulders of the rodent and will kill the rodent instantly once it touches the collar. To capture mice in homes without a rodenticide solution, rodent control professionals often use a trap and bait combination system. If you are having trouble finding rodenticides, there are alternatives. For example, roof rats can be trapped with baits on the roof of the home, so that they will starve to death.
Rodenticides are a great way to deter rodents. However, sometimes these products are too harsh and cause harm to people or pets. Therefore, rodent control companies have developed humane alternatives to these toxic products. For example, mice droppings can be bought at your local hardware store and used as rodent repellents. The droppings act as a natural repellent, attracting mice and rats to the area. Similarly, rodent control products containing squirrel repellents can also be purchased at hardware stores.
Another type of rodent repellent is Ivy Helix. Ivy Helix is a synthetic plant stem found in certain species of plants. The synthetic substance is highly toxic to mice and rats and can cause severe health problems for humans exposed to it. In addition to preventing rodents from gaining access to your home or business, Ivy Helix traps animals when they crawl across its surface. The substance is odourless and non-toxic, making it the perfect rodent control product for apartments, offices, and other areas that would be impractical to implement outside of a veterinary office.
Once your rodent control products and ivy sprays begin to take effect, you should consider calling a rodent control professional for help. While you will be able to successfully control rodents on your own, it is better to have an expert come out and take care of the clean-up. Rodent droppings are not easy to remove. In many cases, a clean-up company will use an Envirojet chamber to blast air into the affected area. This process will kill any residual rodent droppings and make the clean-up much easier. They will also be able to advise you on how to prevent a rodent infestation from occurring in the future.
Rodent control is a very specialized job and requires specialized equipment and resources. Before taking on the responsibility of rodent control yourself, it’s best to consult with a rodent control professional to make sure your system is effective and properly maintained. Without the help of a professional rodent management system or rodent monitoring devices, it can be difficult to effectively control rodents and keep them from creating safety hazards and disease.…
