A traditional way to treat rodents is with professional rodent poison bait. Rodents are clever and very cautious creatures. At PestMen we use a slower acting bait that takes a little longer for the bait to kill the rats or mice. This is to stop them becoming “bait shy”. If they see that the food (rodent bait) that they are eating is making them sick they will stop feeding on the bait. It is also the safer more environmentally friendly option. The use of powerful single feeding anticoagulants have been replaced with less toxic safer alternatives.
Will they die in my house? WIll they die inside my roof? Most of the time rats and mice will exit the place they have fed on the bait to seek water and safety. Usually back to the safety of their nest. Sometimes rats will die inside the house. Usually inside your roof which sometimes creates a nasty smell. In this case we can come back and remove the dead rat or mouse.
These traps are designed to attract the rodents and release them, a humane way to remove these pests from your property. If you are considering using a trapping device you need to be aware that under the Best Practices Act, these traps must be inspected and emptied daily.
