Rodents are annoying pests to deal with in your home, and if you are dealing with an entire colony of rats and mice, something needs to be done quickly to ensure that they do not cause damage to your home or health issues to your family. There are lots of ways that you can use to get rid of rodents, however, the best option is to call a professional rodent control company to come to your home and solve the problem for you. However, if you are still determined to do the task yourself, here are some tips to help you get started:
Using Rat Traps and Cages
Cages and small mousetraps are good options to consider for your rodent control project. Not only are these an effective way of getting rid of the rodents, no chemicals will be used and it will be easy for you to locate the carcasses after the rodents are killed. When using rat traps, make sure to place these in areas where the rodents usually pass by. Make sure to use smaller traps for mice because larger traps will not work. This type of rodent control might take a few days before you are able to get rid of the rodents completely.
Using Rat Control Products
Desperate times call for desperate measures, and if traps and cages do not work, you might consider using rodent control products to get rid of the rats and mice in your home. Make sure to practice extreme caution when using these products because a wrong usage might lead to health issues such as poisoning. Make sure to read the instructions before using to ensure that you know what you are doing. Also, if you have pets and children at home, it might be better that you call a professional pest exterminator instead of using these products.
