How to Control Rodents

If you’re a homeowner, you’ve probably found that rodent and pest control is an extremely important aspect of homeownership. The best defense is a good offense, and a rodent control company and/or pest control company can defend your home from them before they can ever take up residence in your home, but there are also many solutions if you find yourself with an infestation. Here are some of them.

Prevention

It’s important to protect your home from the prospect of pests. They can go unseen for an unbelievably long time while they feast on your food and breed behind your walls, in your crawl space, and in your ceiling and attic, and they can wreak havoc on your home before you even realize they’re there. This is why it’s important to hire a rodent control company or pest control company to take preventative measures that will render your home uninhabitable to pests of all kinds.

Inspection 

It’s vital to call a pest or rodent control company at the first sign of trouble. If you see one roach in your home, it’s likely there are many, many others you haven’t seen: probably an entire family or horde of roaches behind your walls and appliances. An inspection is an inexpensive way to gauge your infestation and find out how much eradication will cost and how invasive treatments will be. A great pest or rodent control company will be able to inspect your home for pests and let you know their plan of attack before you commit to their treatments.

Treatment

If you’ve had an inspection and you trust your pest or rodent control company, the next step is to receive treatment. A good exterminator will have a series of treatments available for any one pest control problem, and they will be able to cater treatment to your situation and your concerns. Some companies offer eco-friendly solutions, which are preferable, especially if you have small pets or children.
