If you suspect you have a rodent infestation at your home or business, you can, as the first line of defense, place a few snap traps around the areas where you suspect rodents are frequenting. If this is successful, you will find rodents caught in these traps. This can be unpleasant and may not solve your problem completely but it’s a start.
Generally, when dealing with a rodent issue, it’s wise to contact a professional pest control company, such as Pestwise. Rodents multiply at a rapid rate so it’s important to contact a trusted pest control company for a rodent inspection. Although there will surely be a cost associated with an exterminator visiting your property to get rid of rodents, the cost should seem reasonable when compared to the cost of the repairs that might be needed as a result of damage caused by rodents eating your home’s wiring, etc. The cost of getting rid of rodents will depend on a few factors:
- Size of your property – larger properties require more labor to seal cracks and holes to exclude rodents
- Extent of infestation – the severity of the infestation will determine how many traps, bait, and cleanup will be necessary
- Accessibility – infestations in difficult to reach areas, such as behind wall voids, will require more time and work
- Clean up – specific cleaning measures are needed to avoid Hantavirus and other airborne pathogens left behind by the rodents.
