There is absolutely nothing appealing about rats and mice. They enter your home quietly and easily because of their ability to squeeze themselves through small open spaces or when you leave your door to the outside open. They are looking for food and shelter. Once inside your home, these pests are in for a long haul in hiding. They move around at night in darkness searching for food particles left within their reach. They leave a trail of germs and diseases all over your kitchen spaces that will make you and your family sick. Pest control exterminators are your best choice to get rid of rats and mice infestation inside your home.
Making Their Way Into Your Home
Rats and mice easily enter your home by forcing their small bodies through cracks and holes in flooring, walls and foundation. You may not be aware of the small holes in these spaces until when you notice rodent droppings left behind on flooring and even on your counter-top spaces. Pest control exterminators will find other spaces in your home that give access to rats and mice.
Other Means Of Access To Inside Your Home
Rodents like warm and cozy areas that are out of your sight inside. So they get busy searching for indoor spaces when temperatures on the outside begin to drop. They scurry through drainage pipes that are not tightly sealed such as sink and shower drains and even through gas and plumbing lines. So exterminators search piping areas and plug up any openings that exist there. They also examine ceiling and window spaces that may have small openings. These professionals also perform spray applications where necessary to annihilate rodent nests. Bear in mind too that there are responsibilities you must take to secure food items in your kitchen.
Securing Your Food
It's a good idea to remove food items from store packaging and place them in metal or glass containers. Do that because mice will gnaw right through paper or plastic bags that hold food items. Make sure to clean out shelves and drawers so that there is no food left behind there. Seal up trash in garbage cans, and use garbage cans that have cover lids. Wipe off the counters to get rid of rodent droppings. Your aim is to shut down their source of food and wipe off counter-top bacteria. Your pest control exterminator is poised to finish off your home's rodent population for good.
Exterminators Set Traps
Leave it to the exterminators to set traps for rats and mice. They will set up glue and live traps. You have the choice of setting up old-fashioned snap traps that work. Just remember that the trapping stage can be difficult to arrange. That's why it's best to have your pest control professional set baits and place them safely out of the reach of kids and pets.Share

When we realized that our daughter had severe allergies, we started thinking about what types of products we were using around our home. Instead of spraying things everywhere, we started focusing on natural, herbal remedies. Believe it or not, we even found chemical free ways to control the pests in our house. We contacted an all natural pest control company who specialized in effective, humane treatment. For example, we substituted our chemical rodent traps for glue versions, which allowed the rodents to be released back into the wild. Check out this blog for tips for choosing safe, effective pest control methods.
