Are You Causing Your Rodent Problem?

When you have a rodent problem in your home it’s hard to wrap your mind around the thought of, “Rats and mice in my house? How?” 

It’s unnerving to know these rodents are wreaking havoc in your home, but figuring out the source of the problem can be just as helpful in preventing the same mistake twice! 

Factors that can increase the chances of rodents making their way into your home include:

  • Bird Feeders: Feed that accumulates on the ground beneath and around bird feeders draws in rodents. Keep bird feeders far away from your home.
  • Feeding Pets Outside: When it comes to feeding time for outdoor pets, be sure to clean up any leftovers before they attract rats and mice.
  • Ground Cover Landscape: Any ground cover landscape that comes in contact with the foundation of your home gives rodents access to your home. Keep a 2-3 foot buffer between foundation and ground cover.

While there is no such thing as rodenticide that forces rodents outdoors to die or seek water, Century Pest Control can initiate a trapping service as a complete package for a low price that will ensure the capture of these disease-carrying creatures. 

The full trapping service includes:

  • Site assessment
  • Trap management
  • Capture

Identifying and sealing entry points in your home is an additional service and can be quoted during an onsite inspection.

Contact Century Pest Control today to find out if our trapping service is the right choice for your home.
