If you’re a homeowner, there are probably a lot of projects around the house that you take on yourself—anything from small repairs to major home improvements. Some Temecula homeowners even try to take the DIY route when it comes to pest control, rodent control in particular.
DIY Rodent Control Methods
You can find many different products in the pest control aisle of your local home improvement store that claim to help you catch or kill rodents: snap traps, glue traps, live traps, and rodent bait are some examples. You can certainly try these over-the-counter options if you think you may just have one or two rogue rodents, but if you suspect you have a larger rodent infestation, or if you’re not sure where the rodents are hiding out, it is best to call a professional Temecula rodent control company.
The thing about DIY rodent control products sold in stores is that to use them successfully, you need to have an understanding of rodent behavior. As pest control experts, we know which types of methods to use for the type of pest problem you have, and we also know the most effective places to put each type of control method. Additionally, we can use rodent control products in ways that won’t endanger your pets or children.
