How do you catch a rodent in your home?

So How do you catch a rodent in your home?

Many people use poison to kill rodents, but it can be challenging catching one in your house. If you find that the traps you’ve carefully set aren’t working, consider using professional help like Bon Accord Pest Control. We offer a wide range of pest control services for both residential and commercial properties.

Why is trapping difficult?

How do you catch a rodent in your home?

Without knowing more about what type of rodent you are trying to trap, it’s hard to say why traps may not be successful on their own. The first person who needs to look at  yourself – have you been putting the same traps out every day, have these been checked regularly and have they been maintained? Rodents need a steady supply of food and water or they will relocate elsewhere. Have other possible entry points for rodents been blocked? The type of rodent you are trying to trap will determine the best way to approach this.

What if I can’t exclude them?

You may be able to catch rodents in live traps, but it’s important that you let professional pest control services take care of exclusion at this point. If they have gnawed their way in, they’ll want out – and this is where your problems really start! Once a rodent colony becomes established in your home or business, trapping won’t work as none of the animals will be new arrivals – meaning they’ll know all about your traps. You need someone who knows how to locate and seal off every possible entrance a rat could use.

How do I get professional help?

Keeping track of every possible rodent entry point is a tough job – especially if these entrances are hard to find. If you would like help with trapping and exclusion, contact us today at Bon Accord Pest Control. We can visit your property to identify potential areas a rat could use as an entrance and then seal them off. If you need help, call us today at Bon Accord Pest Control. We offer a wide range of pest control services for both residential and commercial properties.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
