When even a single mouse is seen in the house, it means the entire family of the rats are living in the house, the walls, storerooms, basements, and many more such places. As the rats are active mostly at night, they are rarely visible during the day time. And for getting rid of them, a proper process of rat evacuation or rat pest control needs to be carried out.
What is the Process of Rodent Removal For Your Home?
Be it a professional rodent evacuation or DIY, there is a particular process that needs to be carried out for effective results. Again, while carrying out the evacuation process, there are certain things that need to be looked after too. Here is how the process of rat evacuation carried out.
Look after the food and other eatable ingredients
While carrying the process of rodent removal, make sure there is no food left out. Store the food items in the jar or can and store it inside the refrigerator or some plastic container during the process. Be it the cereals, nuts, candies, bread, grains, or any other type of food, store it inside the refrigerator or on countertops. The rodents can the food if stored in plastic bags, so make sure you find a strong storage bag or something for keeping it safe.
Repairing of holes
Is there any hole in the baseboard, basement, wall, apartment, or any other place? If yes, it needs to be repaired as that is the place where the rat enters your house at night. Be it a half-inch diameter hole or a bigger one, they are the right places the rats enter. So, repair the holes properly.
Clear the top and bottom areas
Are there things on top of the refrigerator? Or some unwanted bottles or other kinds of stuff beneath the sink of the kitchen? Clear all such things to work on such areas that allow access to the rats.
Activities with the technician
When the service provider arrives for rat removal, discuss the actual situation, damage, and other essential things with him regarding the removal process. Tell him the areas where the rats are widely observed. When the technician places the traps or baits, you can help him, but make sure you don’t touch the baits or traps and disturb them.
Eliminate what’s not necessary
There might be bundles of newspapers in the storeroom, unwanted boxes, clothes that are not fitting anymore, and much more. Make sure you eliminate all such stuff from the house as they provide shelter to the rats. They damage the items for making their homes and even breed which is quite disturbing. So, clear out all such things.
Even after the process of rat evacuation is carried out, make sure you are carrying out proper measures to control them from coming again. Vacuum your house properly or contact Peters Pest Control Melbourne for effective pest control and regularly maintain a home that is free from rodents.
