Rodents running rampant?
Determining whether you have a rodent infestation can be challenging, but there are several signs to look out for. While the most obvious indicator is seeing a live or dead rodent in your home or workplace, rodents are nocturnal creatures and often remain hidden during the day. This makes other signs more noticeable. Spotting small, dark droppings in cupboards or along baseboards, gnaw marks on food packaging or structures, unexplained noises within walls or ceilings, and nests made of shredded paper or other material in secluded areas are all indicators of rodents like rats and mice. Unusual, musky odours also tend to be a sign of infestations.
The Rodent in Question
Rats can adapt to different environments and exhibit a rapid reproduction rate. Their nocturnal behaviour and fondness for hoarding characterises them as an invasive pest. Their tenacity can also lead to significant issues if they infiltrate your home or business, as they can quickly spread disease and cause substantial damage. Prompt action at the earliest indication of a potential rat problem can significantly manage the duration and intensity of a rat infestation.
Mice are classified as rodents due to their distinct physical and behavioural characteristics. Like other rodents, mice are highly adaptable creatures capable of thriving in diverse environments. They also have a high reproduction rate, another common trait among rodents. Since these critters are predominantly nocturnal and exhibit hoarding behaviours, they can easily cause infestation if not controlled.
Integrated Rodent Control
Long-term rodent control combines comprehensive methods to eliminate existing infestations and prevent future ones. Our process begins with a thorough inspection of the property to identify signs of rodent activity, entry points, and potential nesting sites. Following our inspection, we employ various methods to eradicate rodents, including traps, baits, or rodenticides. The next step involves rodent-proofing the property by sealing all identified entry points and identifying all environmental factors that may attract rodents, such as food sources and clutter.
Regular monitoring and maintenance follow, as key components of our rodent control management. Our pest control team can conduct contractual inspections to ensure the treatment’s effectiveness and make necessary adjustments to avoid re-infestation. This approach helps maintain a rodent-free environment for residential and commercial spaces.
