Process of Rat and Mice Eradication

Eradicating rats and mice from your home or property requires a systematic approach. Here’s a step-by-step process to effectively eliminate these rodents:

  • Inspection and Assessment: Professional technicians start by conducting a detailed inspection of your property to assess the extent of the infestation. They identify the type of rodents present and their entry points, as well as the areas where they are active.
  • Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the inspection findings, the pest control professionals develop a customized treatment plan. This plan outlines the methods and strategies to be used for eradication, tailored to your specific infestation.
  • Exclusion Measures: Technicians implement exclusion measures to seal entry points and prevent future infestations. This involves identifying and sealing gaps, cracks, and holes that rodents can use to access your property.
  • Trapping and Baiting: Pest control professionals strategically place traps and bait stations in areas of high rodent activity. They use a variety of traps, including snap traps, glue traps, and bait stations with rodenticides, to target and eliminate the rodents.
  • Monitoring and Follow-Up: Regular monitoring is conducted to check traps and bait stations. Technicians keep track of the rodent activity and adjust their methods as needed. Follow-up visits are scheduled to ensure the infestation is fully resolved.

Identifying Signs of Mice and Rat Infestation

  • Nocturnal Activity: Mice are primarily nocturnal creatures, meaning they are most active during the night. They tend to come out to forage for food and explore their surroundings when it’s dark.
  • Gnawing and Chewing: Mice have a constant need to gnaw and chew to keep their teeth from overgrowing. As a result, they leave behind evidence of their gnawing habits on various materials, such as wires, food packaging, and wooden structures.

Types of Rats and Mice

  • Common House Mouse: This small, adaptable mouse is one of the most widespread rodents in the U.S. It is often found in and around homes and buildings.
  • Norway Rat: Also known as the brown rat or sewer rat, the Norway rat is a larger, brownish-gray rodent. It is commonly found in urban and suburban areas, often in sewers, basements, and other dark, damp places.
  • Roof Rat: The roof rat, or black rat, is smaller and sleeker than the Norway rat. They are often found in attics, trees, and other elevated areas. They have a preference for warmer climates, especially in the southern U.S.
  • House Rat: Another species of rat, the house rat, can be found in urban and suburban environments, often in and around buildings.

Pro-active Tips by Pillar Pest Control for Mice and Rat Prevention

Seal Entry Points: Inspect your home for gaps, cracks, and holes, and seal them with caulk, steel wool, or other appropriate materials. Pay special attention to areas where utility pipes and cables enter your home.

Screen Vents and Chimneys: Use fine mesh screens to cover vents and chimneys to prevent rodents from entering through these openings.

Keep a Clean Home: Regularly clean your home, especially the kitchen, to eliminate food sources that attract rodents. Keep food in airtight containers and clean up crumbs and spills promptly.
