“’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse”
—Clement Clark Moore
Unfortunately, the scurrying mice in your home did not get Mr Moore’s memo! While you’re dreaming of snuggling up with a blanket on your couch, squirrels, rats, and mice are also looking for a nice, warm spot to stay warm—your home! These uninvited guests are not only a nuisance, they also contaminate food, spread disease (salmonella bacteria and hantavirus through their urine and feces or directly through bites), and cause structural damage (by chewing through wood and electrical wires, leading to possible house fires).
When Truly Nolen services your rodent infestation, we approach it in a way that ensures the quickest possible results. After conducting a thorough inspection of your home, your pest control professional will develop a customized plan for your home adhering to our Complete Rodent Control “CRC” program, which involves sanitation measures, rodent proofing (exclusion), and population reduction (trapping).
- Sanitation: In addition to providing necessary tips for conditions which may be attracting rodents (rodent-proof food storage containers, pet food areas, elimination of cardboard boxes used for nest-making) our pest professional may use a HEPA vacuum system to remove dried fecal matter and apply sanitizing agents your property to eliminate the long term contamination left behind by rodent feces and urine.
- Rodent-Proofing (Exclusion): The most successful and permanent form of rodent control is to limit shelter and prevent rodents from entering your home. We will inspect your home to find any rodent entry points (holes, crevices, or gaps larger than 1/4 inch) and seal them.
- Trapping: Rodent infestations typically require some form of population reduction (e.g., trapping). Many factors, especially placement, account for the overall success. Rats are very leery of anything new in their environment and will avoid a freshly placed trap so this process could take a few days or up to a few weeks.
