A rodent infestation cannot only be unpleasant but can cause property damage and present serious health concerns. Rodent populations grow very quickly so it is best to target the issue when populations are small before it becomes a full-blown infestation. Time is of the essence! Call your Truly Nolen Canada pest control professional today for a inspection.
House Fires: Rodents’ front teeth are constantly growing and so they perpetually gnaw on surfaces to wear their teeth down. Their incessant gnawing behavior has been known to cause significant property damage. Rodents’ gnawing on electrical wiring is a significant cause of house fires. They also cause significant damage to PVC pipes and HVAC ducts.
Rat Bites: Not only do rodents chew, they also bite! Sadly small children and infants are most often victims of a rodent’s bite. Infants have suffered the loss of toes or even died as a result of rat bites. In addition to the dangers associated with a rat bite, a rodent bite can pass diseases like strep bacteria to its victim.
Airborne Transmission: After they have dried, rodent feces can be reservoirs of a variety of dangerous diseases and viruses. These dry droppings break apart upon contact and release airborne particles that may enter your nasal passages and cause serious infection. Consequently, rodent droppings should be handled with utmost care.
When Truly Nolen Canada services your rodent infestation, we approach it in a way that ensures the quickest possible results. We understand each Canadian home is unique and our professionally trained Truly Nolen Canada technicians will take the time to understand your individual needs and then conduct a thorough inspection of your home. We will identify any signs of rodent activity and potential entry points. At the end of the inspection, your Truly Nolen Canada pest control professional will develop a customized plan to address your specific rodent problem.
A successful and effective rodent control strategy typically involves rodent proofing (exclusion), population reduction (trapping), and sanitation measures.
The most successful and permanent form of rodent control is to limit shelter and prevent rodents from entering your home. In the exclusionary phase of the program, your Truly Nolen Canada expert technician essentially rodent proofs your home. By excluding rodents from your home and effectively removing any places they have to find shelter, rest, hide, forage, or build nests, rodents cannot survive in large numbers. A rodent can squeeze into your Canadian home through holes that appear to be much too small for them. Mice can enter a home through a hole as small as a dime; rats can enter through a hole as small as a quarter. As part of the exclusion process, Truly Nolen Canada will inspect your home to identify and seal potential entry points – any holes, crevices, or gaps that are larger than 6 mm through which rodents can squeeze through. An ongoing monitoring program ensures that these exclusionary measures remain intact for the long term.
When a rodent infestation already exists, some form of population reduction is also necessary. This could take a few days or up to a few weeks. Many factors, especially placement, account for the overall success. Rats are very leery of anything new in their environment and will avoid a freshly placed trap. Your Truly Nolen Canada professional technician will routinely check and promptly remove the rodents as they are trapped. By not relying on inherently hazardous poisons, we can make sure rodents are disposed of properly, and avoid any unpleasant odors for you or your family to endure. Your safety is our priority!
Your Truly Nolen Canada technician will provide a thorough pest control treatment including the eradication of vectors that commonly live with rodents such as fleas, roaches, mites, and ticks. These feasting insects use the rodent as a host and also transmit disease.
Even when rodents and associated insects have been eliminated, their feces and urine may have been left behind and lead to long-term disease and contamination. As a result it may be necessary to sanitize your property. Removal of rodent droppings is a serious business, so your Truly Nolen Canada technician will discuss the rodent sanitation plan best suited for your particular needs. They will typically apply a sanitizing agent to all affected surfaces. Truly Nolen Canada uses a HEPA vacuum system to prevent dried fecal matter from becoming airborne.
An ongoing monitoring program ensures any exclusionary measures remain intact for the long-term. We will regularly monitor your home to ensure the rodent prevention plan is effectively working, making any necessary adjustments. We will consult with you and provide education on ways to prevent future rodent infestations. Our goal is to deliver a long-term rodent-free environment and to provide 100% customer satisfaction.
The most effective rodent control begins with prevention. Trash should be disposed of properly, and sanitary conditions should be impeccably maintained. Rodents can survive in small areas with limited amounts of food and shelter. So no matter how clean, all places where human or pet food is stored should be made rodent-proof by keeping food tightly sealed in metal or glass containers. Cardboard boxes are attractive to rodents, as they chew them up for use in their nests.
