Do You Need a Rodent Pest Control Specialist?

If you’re experiencing an infestation of rats or mice in your home, or squirrels and moles in the garden, it’s time to call rodent control! A rodent pest control specialist will assess the level of infestation, come up with a plan for eradication and then work to eliminate the rodents infesting your property. Left unchecked, a rodent infestation can cause serious damage to your home or garden, and can even attract bigger pests like foxes, exacerbating the problem.

If it has gone beyond what a few carefully laid mousetraps can do, let HaMuch help you find a friendly, local rodent control expert who can take care of the problem in no time.

What Does a Professional Rodent Control Specialist Do?

A rodent control specialist, or rodent exterminator, will:

  • Provide a list of preparatory activities: Controlling rodents requires a variety of tasks, including removing leftover foods and sealing storage cans. This list of preparatory activities is conducted by specialists to help ward off additional rodents before the main deinfestation.
  • Inspect the property and environment: A rodent control specialist will inspect the property and surrounding environment upon arrival. Rodents are capable of living in crevices and pipes; they burrow through wood and to make holes leading outside. Rodent control specialists inspect and block channels and cracks that lead outside to prevent colonies moving in and out of the property.
  • Place traps and bait: Traps range from snap traps to multiple catch traps, glue traps and electric traps. These various traps have different application principles, depending on the environment and type of rodent they’re attempting to snare. Baits are very effective if used correctly. A rodent pest control specialist knows the most effective bait to apply when exterminating different types of rodents.
