Rodent Extermination Process
Rodents are one of the most versatile creatures on the planet and can be incredibly difficult to eradicate. They bring with them extensive harm to neighborhood gardens and plagued structures. Additionally, rodents are known to bear numerous illnesses, posing a health threat to the humans around them.
Unfortunately for us, rat populations are notorious for growing relentlessly and at rapid rates, which is why it is best to begin controlling these pests before an invasion. When you choose 1st Stryke for your rodent extermination needs, you can anticipate a thorough four-step process.
Step 1: Rodent Inspection
Rats, mice, and other rodents are clever creatures and can gain entry to your home via openings as small as ¼” in diameter because of their size. When they find a source of food, they can become increasingly destructive to reach it. They can easily chew through the softer structural materials of your home to create an entryway.
The first step of our rodent extermination process includes one of our trained rodent technicians coming to your home to conduct a thorough inspection. At this time, they will identify infestations in your home and look for potential entry points. We conduct an inspection covering all corners of your home, including:
- Underneath decks
- Exterior perimeters
- Crawl spaces
Once we complete your inspection, your technician will draw up a complete report revealing their discoveries. At this time, your technician will also provide you with an itemized estimate for possible resolutions.
Step 2: Rodent Cleanup and Sanitation
Next, following the review of your plan, you and your technician will agree on the appropriate course of action for your home. In every extermination, we send our team to complete a thorough cleanup of your home. During the process, we are sure to sanitize your home simultaneously. Cleanup and sanitation of damages may include addressing:
- Electrical shorts or wiring concerns
- Ruined food items
- Soiled or destroyed insulation
- Rodent waste
We will include removing any signs of rodent infestation by eliminating any urine, feces, debris, or other rodent-contaminated materials during this process. Following this cleanup process, we will spray the contaminated areas with a California state-approved sanitizing and deodorizing solution.
Step 3: Rodent Exclusion
After the cleanup and sanitation of your home, our technicians will locate potential entry points around your house that might have caused the infestation and seal them off to prevent future issues. Our professionally trained technicians use a variety of materials to rodent-proof your home, including:
- Galvanized steel screens
- Metal flashing
Eliminating entryway points will minimize the threat of rodents returning to your home or other potential infestations in the future.
Step 4: Rodent Trapping
Lastly, our technicians will begin baiting and trapping the mice or rats in and around your home. We prefer trapping to poison for a few different reasons, but primarily due to safety concerns. Poison baiting might cause rodents to die in areas that can’t be reached in your home easily, including attics or within your walls. As you can imagine, not only will this cause an odor issue, but it can also create a health concern for your family.
