How do exterminators get rid of rodents?

Professional exterminators will inspect your property for entryways, such as holes and cracks in your foundation, in windows and doors, screened vents, and pipes going into buildings. Sealing these openings is essential to prevent rodents from entering your home or business. There are many ways to eliminate rodents but the tried and true snap trap is a good place to start. Some pest control companies place snap traps baited with the food rodents have been snacking on in your home or business, such as peanut butter, dog food, or fruit in strategically chosen locations. In Southeast Mississippi, the Roof Rat is the most common rodent to infest homes and other structures. Pest professionals should pay particular attention when inspecting the attic as this is a main area where roof rats tend to travel and nest. Norway rats, are less commonly found in Southeast Mississippi and are most often near waterways and sewers or nesting in ground burrows outside. Installing tamper-proof baits around the perimeter of your home or business also helps reduce rodent populations. A professional pest control company will visit your home or business after rodent reduction treatments to remove dead rodents until rodent activity ceases.
