Poison-free Rat Control and Mouse Control

Rats and mice can enter your home looking for shelter, warmth, and food. Bad enough to have unwanted house guests, but these pests also present a danger to your home and the health of your family.

Although you want them out of your home, you may wish to use the most humane methods possible.

Solutions Pest Control standards encompass control methods that leave the lightest environmental footprint while being effective. The protection of our customers’ homes and businesses from the hazards brought about by a rodent infestation, is our first priority. Secondly, we focus on delivering pest management through the most humane methods appropriate.

With our many years of experience in pest control, we know each situation needs to be assessed to determine the suitable control methods to be used.

Rodenticide Free Rodent Control

At Solutions Pest Control, we employ rodenticide only as a last resort. There are a number of rodenticide free (or poison-free) methods that can be very effective, depending on the specific circumstances.

Our preferred poison-free rodent control methods include:

Altering the Environment

If you leave food and water out for your pets, rodents will be more than happy to help themselves. Bird feeders can also attract them and should be positioned away from the home, as should garbage and compost bins. Also, be sure that these bins are securely sealed.

Ultrasonic Repellents

These devices are meant to emit sound at a frequency that humans cannot hear, but which irritate pests. Rats and mice will stay away to avoid this discomfort.

Natural Deterrents

In recent years, consumers have been moving toward natural products and this is true also in pest control. Several natural deterrents exist that can help defend your home without the need for harsh chemicals. You may plant a border of mint, lavender, or rosemary, for example. Organic products now appearing on the market are using these ingredients and others, such as garlic, cinnamon, and clove to keep rats and mice at bay.

Other Deterrents

Water sprays activated by motion detectors and strobe lights have also been used in deterring rats and mice from entering your property.

Mouse and Rat Traps

These are not the same spring traps that you likely remember from years ago. Modern traps have come up with a variety of ingenious ways to attract and catch mice and rats without killing them. This allows them to be removed from your home safely and securely.

A note about spring traps: they are still in use as are several other traps that can cause unnecessary pain and suffering, such as glue traps. Be aware that some companies might employ these devices to rid your home of rodents. At Solutions Pest Control, we focus on humane traps, without sacrificing effectiveness.

Exclusion

Once rats and mice have been removed from your house, exclusion is your means of keeping them out. This is part of our holistic approach to pest control. By sealing up any vulnerable points in your home such as drainpipes, air vents, and damaged foundations, we keep your home secure.
