Benefits of Poison Free Rodent Control

Rodent control is an important aspect of maintaining a clean and safe living or working environment. However, traditional methods of rodent control, such as using poison, can have negative impacts on both the environment and human health. As an alternative, poison-free rodent control methods offer a range of benefits that make them a more sustainable and responsible choice.

One of the main benefits of poison-free rodent control is that it is safer for both humans and pets. Poisonous baits and traps can be dangerous if they are not used properly, and accidental ingestion by children or pets can lead to serious health problems. Poison-free methods, such as live traps and exclusion devices, are much safer and do not pose a risk to human or animal health.

Another benefit of poison-free rodent control is that it is better for the environment. Poisonous baits and traps can harm or kill other animals that come into contact with them, including birds of prey and other non-target species. Poison-free methods do not have this negative impact on the environment and can be used without worrying about the collateral damage caused by poisons.

Poison-free rodent control methods also prove to be more effective. Poisonous baits are not always effective in eliminating rodent populations, and dead rodents can attract other animals to the area. Poison-free methods such as exclusion devices, habitat modification, and trapping can be more effective in eliminating rodent populations, and preventing them from returning.

Lastly, poison-free rodent control methods also save money. Poisonous baits and traps can be costly and may need to be replaced frequently. Poison-free methods, such as exclusion devices, are long-lasting and can be used for an extended period of time.

In conclusion, poison-free rodent control methods offer a range of benefits over traditional methods that use poisons. These methods are safer for humans and pets, better for the environment, more effective, and cost-effective. By using poison-free methods, it's possible to eliminate rodent populations without causing harm to other animals or the environment. It's important to consult with pest control professionals to implement an effective poison-free rodent control plan.

Rodents Nesting in the Attic- How to Get Rid of Them Poison Free

When you lay there in bed you may hear scratching in the attic. Often it is mice you hear tunneling underneath the insulation of your attic. Rodents lov to live in your attic. Rodents climb and crawl into your attic. This includes crawling up and down your walls to your attic space. Rodents will use your insulation for nesting material creating pockets to store things like seeds, nuts, and other food sources. Once the rodents have gained access into your attic they can cause the following problems:

  • Scratching in the attic
  • Scratching in the walls
  • Rodent droppings in the attic
  • Strong odors in the attic
  • Gnawing and chewing of wires
  • Chewing of plumbing pipes
  • Diseases like the Hanta virus

When you discover a rodent problem in the attic it is important to take action. Trapping, prevention and exclusion are the best techniques.

Get Rid of Rodents

How to get rid of Rodents in the attic?

How to get rid of rodents in the attic - The reality is that the reason that you are most likely reading this article is because you have some kind of rodent in your attic. This is not a pleasant idea at all. Rodents can do a great deal of damage inside your home, plus they are filthy animals that leave a great deal of disease and pestilence. The last thing you want is to be trying to keep yourself and your family healthy when these critters are living in your home.

You want to try to get rid of them as quickly as possible and in as safe a way as possible. However, you need to understand that this is not a one size fits all solution. Depending upon what you want to occur to the rodent, the type of animal plays a big part in the choices that you have available to you.

For example, if you had a mouse or a group of mice that were living in your attic your solution to getting rid of them would be quite different than if you had squirrels or raccoons living in there. Mice are not as easily scared away from your attic because they can easily scurry away into some kind of crevice or crack that will make it very difficult to try to get them to leave. On the other hand, if you were to startle a raccoon it will attempt to leave out of whatever entryway it is using to get into your home, and you would have a much greater opportunity to just enclose that gap so that it cannot get back in. This is the conundrum you face.

No matter what kind of rodent you are talking about, one option that you always have available to you is the use of some kind of poison to kill off the beast or beasts. We'd highly recommend you stay away from this method. Many like this option, because it's easy. Reality is that if you do not want this critter or critters ever returning to your home then this may seem like logical solution. You would no longer have to worry about whether they could get into your home or not, but you may encounter more issues such as flies, dead animal smell, or secondary poisoning to pets.

A 4 Step Process to Elminate Rodents and Keep Them From Coming Back

  1. Inspection: Inspect inside your attic for rodent sign. Look for the animal(s), or their feces, or tracks, or damage so that you know what kind of critter you are dealing with. If you've got rodents in the attic, they are getting inside somehow. You have open holes or gaps leading inside the house! You must find these areas to solve the problem.
  2. Live Exclusion: To prevent the problem from happening again, seal shut the entry hole(s)! Also, in the case of rodents, it's a good idea to repair the damage in the attic and clean it too.
  3. Trapping: The best way to get rid of rodents in the attic depends on which animal you are targeting. Once you know the species, read about that specific animal on this website.
  4. Clean Up: Some homes that are filled with mice droppings will require a clean up and possible attic restoration. Damaged insulation and dropping need to be removed sanitized and replaced.
