Rodent-Free Zone: Safeguard Your Space with Our Expert Extermination!
With our expertise and commitment to excellence, we are dedicated to keeping your home or business free from pesky rodents.
Rodents, such as rats and mice, are more than just a nuisance. They can cause significant damage to your property, contaminate food sources, and pose serious health risks. At Hern’s Pest Control, we understand the urgency and importance of addressing rodent infestations promptly and effectively.
Using safe and environmentally friendly methods, we employ a combination of traps, baits, and exclusion techniques to eliminate rodents from your space. Our goal is not only to remove the existing population but also to prevent future infestations by sealing off access points and implementing proactive measures.
A house compromised by mice and rats is a house saddled with higher utility bills. But more importantly, treating a home for rodents means creating a healthy and clean space for the whole family.
Rodents can be a severe health risk because they can cause rat-bite fever and spread salmonella, hantavirus, and even the bubonic plague. The way that they spread these diseases is by contaminating food sources inside the home. These pests are incredibly capable of reaching any food left open or poorly covered.
Households with children and pets should be especially concerned about making sure there are no rodents on their property. Rats, in particular, should not co-exist with children and pets. Even if a dog or cat instinctively kills a rat, that could lead to them picking up harmful bacteria.
Keep in mind that rodents can get into electrical wiring. Their constant gnawing needs are due to teeth that are continuously growing. They always have an urge to chew and do so on almost anything. If a household fails to tend to their problem with rodents, it could lead to an electrical fire.
The first step to successful rodent removal is locating cracks or holes that mice or rats have made in the house. The inspection also includes searching for gnaw marks, nestling locations, teeth marks on food packaging, urine stains, and droppings. Hern’s Pest Control is always thorough and checks all the areas where rodents could be hiding, such as the attic and basement.
In most cases, certain areas of the house have higher rodent traffic than others. Exterminators place traps in these spots and use potent rodenticides to eliminate them permanently. Trapping is just one part of the effort—the other involves the safe removal of dead rodents where the key is not to endanger safety or health. Rodent removal can be tricky and should always be left to professionals.
Bait Stations & Rock Stations
Bait stations are structures containing pellets or meal. They are sealed and can be found wrapped in paper, cellophane, or plastic. The rodents can easily get into any of those by gnawing with their teeth, leading to a quick death. Rock stations are appropriate if the rodent infestation is not as severe. They are placed outside where rodents eat them and die before getting into the house.
Rodent Proofing & Exclusion
Prevention is often the most effective method of pest control. Also, rodent proofing and exclusion are excellent ways to ensure mice and rats do not get into the home. One way to do this is to close all holes and entry points where rodents can sneak in. It could be a vent cover, an attic, or a chimney. Alternatively, if the problem is around gas lines, electrical lines, or plumbing, that is where proofing is necessary.
Sanitizing & Contamination Remediation
The only way to minimize a repeat rodent invasion is to perform sanitizing and contamination remediation. To do this, Hern’s Pest Control takes a detailed look at all the contaminated areas and determines what needs removing. We will make any necessary recommendations for sanitizing and contamination remediation.
