It is very simple, and following theses steps will ensure a lasting success.
Step 1: Identify what problem rodents you’re dealing with. Are they mice problems or rat problems?
Step 2: Remove the problem rodents. Snap traps placed in the attic, crawlspace, and interior of home. Place traps as close to the openings rodents are using for best results. If rats, use a few live traps, as some rats are big.
Step 3: Proper seal up of the home around the foundation and roof line. Rodents can enter the smallest openings, so closing off all openings will stop activity, and use materials rodents will not chew through. Make sure limbs and trees are trimmed back from home, or anything that would allow easy access.
Step 4: Clean up, or disinfecting and sanitizing rodent affected areas, removing contaminated insulation, duct lines, nesting, or fecal accumulations.

Understanding the difference can aide you in permanently solving your rodent problem. Pest Control companies will usually contract a homeowner or business for a monthly service of rodent control, which is fine in theory. But one factor that is not covered is repair of openings, and a true understanding of wildlife. Most pest companies have integrated into the wildlife field for the extra revenue. Bug specialists usually fall short in wildlife inspecting, turning a simple issue into a problem.

Wildlife Removal companies will inspect, diagnose, repair openings, and even clean up and restore damage. That is whats needed for a long term solution and understanding the process is half the battle.
