Comprehensive Rodent Control For Your San Diego Home
Finding rodents in your house is never a pleasant surprise, and it always comes with a multitude of problems. Even if you only see one mouse or rat, you can be certain that more are present out of sight. Rodents cause problems in a variety of ways, but the most dangerous problems are the damage they cause to your house and the diseases they spread through their contaminated feces.
Protecting your family from rodents requires a comprehensive plan that takes more than simply eliminating the pests you see. Bite Away Termite & Pest Control offers the full-service rodent control treatments you need to protect your San Diego home from dangerous rodents.
Rodent Control From Bite Away Termite & Pest Control
In order to fully eliminate and prevent rodent infestations, it’s not enough to set out some traps and hope for the best. A comprehensive home rodent control plan that considers all factors of a rodent infestation must be employed. Bite Away Termite & Pest Control uses a three-part process to remove active rodents from your property and to prevent a new infestation from occurring. We’ll work closely with you to enact each step of the process to ensure a safe, rodent-free home.
The first step is sanitation which involves removing the food and harborage sources that allow rodents to thrive in your home. It’s important to remove or make inaccessible all food sources in and around your house. Instead of leaving food out on counters, store it in hard-sided, airtight containers. Outside, make sure pet food, bird food, and other items are not available.
It’s also important to remove harborage areas so that mice have nowhere to shelter in your home. They prefer cluttered places where they can hide, so removing as much clutter as possible will help minimize the areas where rodents can hide.
Keeping rodents out of your home is most successfully done when it is free of entry points. We provide exclusion services to seal openings into your house that rodents might use to get inside. By using heavy materials that cannot be chewed through, such as galvanized steel mesh, liquid foam, and more, we’ll seal all holes over ¼ of an inch as well as cracks and gaps.
Once we’ve worked together to take steps to prevent rodents from getting inside, it’s time to trap the rodents that are active in your home. This process does take time, but it is an effective way to eliminate rodents. There are several types of traps available, and we’ll use the ones that will yield the best results for your situation. Snap traps, bait traps, and glue traps are all available.
We can also use repellents to keep mice away. While chemical repellents rarely work and can be dangerous if not properly applied, there are natural options that can help. We recommend repellents only as an additional preventative step, not as your full rodent control plan.
