How To Get Rid Of Rats & Mice
Rodents can be very challenging to control for homeowners and even other pest companies. Their behavior and habits, can make them avoid traps, glue boards, and poisons, and cause a serious health and safety risk to your home. If you are attempting rodent control in your home, do not limit traps to just in the interior. Rodents will never have a opening that leads straight into the inside of the home. Rodents will often enter construction gaps around the foundation or roofline, giving them access into the attic, wall, or crawlspace. From there, rodents can go up and down walls, come out across baseboards, and utilize openings around pipes to gain access into the interior of the home. Here is what you need to know:
- Control: Rats can be very wary of traps. Utilize more than a few traps in the attic and crawlspace. Avoid the use of glue boards, as rats are large enough, they can drag the glue board away. Avoid the use of poisons, as rats can die in walls and other inaccessible areas.
- Behavior: Rats rely heavily on scent markings, body oils, feces, and urine from other rats to communicate and be attracted to your home. They can fit through very small openings and be extremely destructive.
- Disease Contamination: Rats can harbor over 30 human communicable diseases associated with “rat bites” and their “droppings”. They have larger droppings than mice, and can harbor pathogens and parasites.
- Control: Mice are opportunistic, and control can be achieved with snap traps and glue boards. Avoid the use of poisons as mice will die in walls and other inaccessible areas.
- Behavior: Mice have the ability to enter extremely small openings. They will utilize small construction gaps, and you will notice waves of activity from seasonal changes.
- Disease Contamination: Mice can contaminate much more than it eats daily.
