Hiring an expert to remove rodents from your Vancouver property
If merely thinking of a rat problem makes your skin crawl, then how would you react if you were to know that these annoyingly persistent creatures are renting out your space for the winter or even year round?
A rodent problem is more serious than it appears.
Recently, a woman in Alberta died after she was exposed to an extremely dangerous virus called ‘Hantavirus’ that is normally carried by deer mice. The virus is present in rodent droppings, saliva and urine and is transmitted to humans when they come into to contact with either of these, or even if they breathe in dust that is contaminated with the urine or feces.
Like any other pest invading your home, rodents can quickly multiply, inflict serious damage to your furniture and worse of them all, contaminate your food and surroundings with potentially fatal viruses that can endanger the health of your family.
Thankfully, a rodent infestation is a lot easier to tackle if you detect the signs early and seek help from a Pest control company Vancouver.
Why DIY rodent control is not effective
Many homeowners feel that a rodent problem does not warrant the services of an exterminator. A few DIY methods is all it takes to get rid of the mice and the rats.
Well, its not so simple and here’s why.
- All it takes is a hole the size of quarter for a rat to enter your premises. How would you detect these entry points??
- If you have rodents living in your walls, no amount of traps or baits is going to completely eliminate them.
- You need to know where to install the barriers for it to be most effective. This is where the expertise and skills of a pest control company Vancouver will prove to be helpful.
- You can use Peppermint oil or ultrasonic repellers or anything else that is sold online. But it will hardly make a difference to an existing infestation.
