There are no “magic bullets” or “quick fixes” when it comes to controlling rodents and stopping them from gaining entry into your home. The first and most important step is to perform a thorough inspection of your home or business to try and determine what type of rodent or animal is getting in. After determining what animal or rodent is the problem, another inspection of your home is performed to find the probable points of entry. Trained professionals like the ones at Hitman Pest Control have the knowledge and experience to find how the little “varmits” are getting in.
Usually an “exclusion” service or blocking of the points of entry is all that is needed to stop further infiltration of the offending species. Depending on the type of construction and the age of the home will determine how extensive the remedy could be. In the case of rats or mice, the exclusion work will be performed first and then usually all that is needed is a short period of trapping (normally 5 days) to rid the home or business of rodents. Other animals such as squirrels or raccoons in attics need to be caught first before the exclusion work would be done to avoid trapping the animal in the attic thus sending them into a panic causing them to do damage and possibly either injuring themselves or worse dying.
In certain circumstances such as, older homes with open crawlspaces and the possible points of entry are too numerous to be able to block them all, then a baiting strategy is utilized to cut down on the sheer numbers of rodents that are in the area.
Hitman Pest Control always utilizes approved secure bait boxes to protect your family and pets from ever coming into contact with the poisonous baits. These bait boxes will be placed around the outside perimeter of the home or business, never on the inside thus cutting down on the chances that a rodent will die inside the structure along with the accompanying odor. The utilizing of baits is always the last resort in rodent control, but along with regular pest control service and regular monitoring of the bait boxes, an effective method of controlling rodents that are entering the structure.
