4 Steps in Preparing for Rodent Extermination Services

If your home or business has a rodent problem, the very best way to get it under control and keep it under control is to contact a professional extermination company. After you’ve made the call to Genie Pest Control, there are a few things you can do before our technician arrives to make sure the service is as effective and long lasting as possible.

Preparing for professional pest control services is an important step that can make a real difference in getting a handle on and solving pesky rodent problems. Here are four important “prep” steps that help us rid your home or business of rodents and keep them gone.

Clear the way for our technicians to do their work.

This means removing items from the top of the refrigerator, emptying the items stored beneath sinks, closets or anywhere rodent activity has been noticed.

Don’t leave the mouse or rat droppings until the technician arrives.

Clean up those areas promptly, remove garbage, remove clutter and vacuum or sweep floors to ensure the health and safety of individuals who would otherwise be exposed to the leavings from rodent activity. Wear respiratory protection when cleaning up these areas, then be prepared to point out these problem areas you’ve noticed to your Genie Pest Control technician.

Ensure food is stored appropriately.

When our technicians are there to provide extermination services, make sure all food that is not in a can or a jar is packed away in a heavy plastic tote or similar container. This includes snack foods, cereals, pet foods, candy – really any food that a mouse or rat could chew through packaging and consume. The refrigerator is also a secure place to store food during this time. You’ll need to keep these foods stored away in this manner for at least two weeks after treatment.

Tackle minor home repairs quickly.

Locate and repair any holes in the wall, siding, baseboards, windows or doors where rodents might be finding a way in. Mice can squeeze through a hole as small as ¼ inch in diameter.

Genie Pest Control sees excellent results in getting rid of these pests and keeping them gone.

There are a variety of techniques we can use to solve the issue, and they depend on many variables which our technician will discuss with you. Baits and traps are one line of defense. The expertise of Genie Pest Control is your best line of defense. When you follow the steps listed above, the pest control technician can more effectively rid your home of the problem making it possible for you to maintain a rodent-free home.
