It’s Winter and you should not Try to Treat Rodent Infestations by yourself

Rodent infestations are not a do-it-yourself project. Right now, it’s the dead of winter, in New Jersey, and rodents are looking for warm shelter with a food supply.  The other seasons they look for the same reasons, but the cold makes the need more urgent.

If you are, unfortunately, dealing with an annoying rodent infestation, after you call for help, you most likely want to know how rodents found their way into your home. Whereas, if you do not have an infestation or signs of rodent infiltration, then the knowledge of prevention is very important.  Our goal is to provide you with the tips, techniques, and information around rodent infestations and why you should not go it alone.

There are many experts, such as zoologists and pest management experts, with information that is factual regarding rats and mice. However, rodent control often turns the facts and trustworthy information into non-applicable pieces of knowledge or unsuccessfully addresses the issue. Pest control experts, such as On the Spot Pest Control, are trained to use a wide range of strategies and tactics to detect the presence of mice and rats in a home or office and they must be properly exercised to achieve results.  Simply trapping rodents is not as easy as it sounds. Their instinctual defensive behaviors assist in their avoidance of most traps.  Proper placement is the first step to extraction, but behavioral insights is required. Additionally, traps are not created equal.  Wrong trap equals failure.  On the Spot Pest Control knows what traps work and which ones don’t.

Improper techniques used in removal could leave rodents behind and leave you exposed to the dangers that come with having mice or rats in your home such as sickness, damaged building materials, damaged belongings, ticks and fleas, the smell of urine, and a distinct risk house fire.
