Rodents are the second most successful mammal on our planet, just following behind humans. They depend upon us for food and shelter, and mice are not usually a welcome guest in anyone’s home. There are four steps we take to rid your home of these unwanted tenants.
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 healthy adult mouse can leave up to 50 droppings per day. Rodent waste can often be confused with bat, rat or even roach droppings. The type and quantity of organic materials helps your pest control professional determine what type of pest is present.
Location of the markers are a 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.
