Best Rodent Control
When providing a rodent service for a customer, homeowner, renter, business, commercial structure, etc. It is important to know that one solution is not available. Every home has different layouts, different levels of cleanliness, stored items, and landscape. For this reason, all rodent services must be tailored to each home and home's specific needs. Therefore, we typically do an inspection and devise a plan of action that will work best to rid you of rodents. We typically do a combination of Glue Boards, Snap Traps, and Rodent Bait Stations. We also offer a rodent exclusion service that can be found by clicking the link. Below you will find information about each of the methods we use for rodent removal services.
Rat Snap Traps
Rodent Snap Traps are just as they sound. Typically, they are a spring-loaded trap with a catch lever and pedestal that deliver a powerful snap that delivers a quick blow to the unlucky rodent. Although this may sound cruel, it is important to remember that rodents can cause many health hazards and home hazards. Rodents have a place in the world, but unfortunately, your house is not one of them. When rats and mice invade your home, you have no choice but to protect your loved ones. Because of the powerful punch these traps pack, we typically do not place them in living locations with children and pets.
Rat Glue Traps
Rodent Glue Boards are also just as they sound. These traps are typically a thin plastic container that has a very tacky glue inside of them. This glue is designed to entice the rodent to feed on the bait on the trap or run through them in the rodent's travel paths and capture them. The more the rodent tries to free themselves, the more intertwined the rodent becomes. As previously stated, this may sound cruel; it is important to remember that rodents are can cause many health hazards and home hazards. Rodents have a place in the world, but unfortunately, your house is not one of them. When rats and mice invade your home, you have no choice but to protect your loved ones. Because of the powerful punch these traps pack, we typically do not place them in living locations with children and pets.
Rodent Bait Stations
Rodent Bait stations are typically plastic tamper-resistant housing units that have secured bait placement chambers inside. These units are designed not to allow children or pets to get into them. They also usually require a special key to open them. The bait station is commonly thought of by homeowners to trap rodents inside; however, it is exactly the opposite. A bait station allows the rodents to feed freely on the bait that is inside. The bait is usually a hard-pressed material secured with pins so they cannot grab it and run off with it. The bait is also impregnated with a dye.
As Rats and Mice feed on the bait, they are forced to eat and consume the bait station's bait. The bait is so hard and compressed; it will show the Imperial Pest Prevention technician that the bait has been consumed once we see the gnaw marks. After confirmation of this, your Imperial Pest Prevention technician will scan the home, attic, and crawl space for signs of rodent excrement. Now that the rodent has fed on the bait, the dye will color the rodent's waste with a coloring tint that fluoresces under special lights that the technician uses. This confirms that the bait has entered the system of the rodent and will begin to work.
Your home will remain Rodent and other pests free with a regular pest control program such as those that Imperial Pest Prevention provides. Imperial pest prevention guarantees you to be pest free, or under our guarantee, we will return at no additional charge for service-related callbacks.
