The first step is to determine what type of pest is present. One of the first indicators of a rodent infestation is rodent droppings found in the home. A well fed mouse can leave up to 50 droppings per day. Rodent waste can often be confused with bat, rat or even roach droppings. This waste material helps your pest control professional determine what type of pest is present.
Where the pest markers are found, is another major factor in pest identification. Mice droppings are commonly found underneath kitchen sinks; however it would not be common to find bat droppings in the kitchen. Determining where the pests are nesting and feeding is key to successful pest elimination.
3. Clean up
Once the type of pest has been determined, the waste and other animal materials should be cleaned up. Fecal material can be hazardous; we recommend using a bagged hepa vacuum to remove droppings from accessible areas.
Safety is first and foremost. Baits and traps must be deployed in a manner that it doesn’t endanger people or non target animals. IPM of Northern Colorado employs structured bait and trapping programs to safely and effectively eliminate the targeted pest.
