How Can an Olympia Rodent Control Company Help?

Mice and other rodents are more than just a nuisance when they make their way into a home. These rodents can traumatize people, and make them scared to open cupboards, or even walk around their home. Mice and rats, the most common types of rodents to go into a home, are nocturnal, and the sound of them scratching or scurrying within walls can also make it difficult for people to get a good night’s sleep.

For most homeowners, getting rid of a rodent infestation is their top priority when one develops. Unfortunately, doing so on your own is incredibly difficult. Working with an Olympia rodent control company is the more recommended route, as these experts will eliminate the problem quickly and effectively.

How to Prevent Rodents from Entering the Home

In addition to making people feel uncomfortable in their own home, rodents also carry and transmit a number of different diseases. To avoid these problems, it is important to take appropriate steps to prevent rodents from entering the home. The most important prevention tips are as follows:

  • Repair any damage to the home: Leaky faucets and pipes provide water access to rodents, and cracks in a foundation and gaps and holes around windows or doorways can provide an access point for rodents. Always inspect your entire property regularly, and make any repairs necessary.
  • Perform regular yard maintenance: Ivy, trees, and untrimmed bushes all provide a great spot for rodents to make shelter. They also bridge the gap from outside to inside your home if they touch any part of the structure. Mice and rats will crawl along extended branches to get into cracks and under siding to gain access to the home.
  • Store refuse properly: Food waste makes up the majority of household garbage and if you store your trash outside, there is a good chance it will attract rodents such as mice and rats. When possible, store your garbage in a shed or garage and always use tight-fitting lids on all garbage cans. Always rinse out containers that go into recycling, as well, so the food left inside does not attract rodents.
  • Store food properly: You may not think that leaving food improperly stored in the home will attract rodents from outside. However, they enter homes looking for food and shelter and if you make those basic necessities easily accessible to them, the infestation will only grow larger, perhaps without you even knowing it.

Although the above tips are helpful in preventing rodents from entering the home, they do not always work. If you have spotted rodents in your home, it is important to speak to an Olympia rodent control company that can help.

How Can an Olympia Rodent Control Company Eliminate Your Problem?

With all the baits, traps, and poisons on the market, many people think they can eliminate a rodent problem on their own. Unfortunately, that is rarely an effective solution. If you have an infestation, it is always advised that you speak to a professional Olympia rodent control company.

An Olympia rodent control expert will first get to the root of your problem by determining how rodents are making their way inside. They will begin by examining the exterior of the home, looking for cracks and holes. Rats and mice will both chew through wood, so holes on the outside of a home are an open invitation to enter. After determining how rodents are making their way in, a rodent control expert will then seal off the access points so the pests do not return.

To eradicate the problem, a rodent control expert will then use traps strategically in the home. Unlike what many people think, you do not have to stop having friends over because of the traps lying around everywhere. Traps are usually placed in the attic, crawlspaces, and corners, where the entry and escape routes for rodents are. In some cases, rodenticide is also necessary to completely get rid of the problem.

After a rodent control expert has taken care of the initial problem, they will then follow up. Rodents produce quickly, with female mice giving birth of up to six offspring as many as six times a year. A follow up visit will ensure the rodents have not returned, so you can finally have peace of mind.
