We’ve been getting many calls right now for Rodent Control and for good reason – Pack Rats (Wood Rats) are very active right now. Active meaning they’re looking to ‘move in’ to your property or in your home! There are a number of things you can do to minimize the chances of this desert dweller from making your home, ‘their home’.
Rodent control is recommended for homes that are in close proximity to the desert, especially is your home is near a wash or homes that are in neighborhoods with large numbers of roof rats. Rodent bait boxes containing rodenticide (rat poison) won’t totally eliminate the Pack Rats or Roof Rats but will minimize their numbers, lessening the chances of them making your home – ‘their home’.
For homes that are experiencing rodents inside of the home – in walls or crawl spaces, Snap Traps are recommended but; setting, baiting, re-baiting and finally ‘snapping’ the rodents up and out is expensive – why installing and using preventative rodent bait boxes is ‘cheap insurance’.
