RODENT CONTROL

RODENT CONTROL

It’s summertime in the South  and you have probably noticed that your kids aren’t the only ones that have come out to play. Rodents aren’t big fans of heat or water so these rainy, hot and humid months are when rodents want to stay cool and dry in the comfort of your home. McCauley Services has been keeping neighborhoods rodent-free in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana since 1983. That’s a team of professionals that knows what they’re doing, and that you can count on.

Do I Have a Rodent Problem?

Let’s take a look at your home for a second. If any of these signs sound familiar to you, there is no doubt that you have an infestation of mice, rats, or other rodents.

  • Droppings under sinks, in drawers, around pantries, or near food containers
  • Materials that may be used to make nests - including shredded paper, trash, fabric, dead plants
  • Entry points that have been chewed into walls and floor boards
  • The sound of scurrying in your walls and/or attics
  • If you have dogs, you may hear them barking at cabinets, walls, vents, etc.

If you’re still reading, odds are that you believe you have a rodent problem and want to know what you need to do next.

 

How To Get Rid of Rodents

 

According to the CDC it is important that you discourage rodents from entering your residence by getting rid of water and food sources. Rodents can carry all sorts of diseases and need to be kept away from your family in order to stay healthy. This can be done by sealing any holes that may be used as an entry point for rodents. If there are any areas that look like a good nesting place for rodents, get rid of these immediately, and clean up all food and water put away in your home. That means making sure your garbage has a sealed lid and keeping any compost covered at all times.

 

While these precautionary measures will help with your rodent problem, it is best to call in the professionals at McCauley Services. Mouse traps and other DIY mouse removal products are not always effective in getting rid of rodents. Store bought chemicals can be dangerous to your family and pets if used improperly. So how do we keep rodents away from your home? It depends on what measures we need to take after accessing the problem.

 

McCauley Services doesn’t come in with a quick, short-term fix. We aren’t exterminators that bomb your house with harsh chemicals, we take preventative measures and educate you on what the safest, most effective, and most environmentally-friendly options are. We will seal any holes in windows, walls, floorboards, etc, and remove any debris in or around the home.

Spray

There are many store-bought sprays that you can buy to get rid of rodents. But what does that really mean? You could be bringing in dangerous chemicals that you are spraying into the same air that your kids and pets are breathing in. We use the safest and most environmentally-friendly products on the market. That means, we don’t rely on a spray. We get rid of any sort of food or water source for rodents and then set traps that are highly effective.

Traps

Traps can be bought at a store and easily placed around your home, however they typically are easily accessible to your pets and can be incredibly dangerous. When we come out and place traps on the inside and outside of your homes, they are safe for pets, meaning they cannot get into any poisons or a trap that will close down on those sweet little paws that we love so much. We reach areas that are difficult to get to.

Poison

Have you seen little black boxes that have been set by pest control companies? These mouse bait stations have a poisonous bait that attracts the rodents and is safe to your pets and children, because it is a lockable box that pets and children cannot break into. The rodents smell the bait and are lured in, believing it may be food. 

Non-lethal traps

Another form of trap we use is a sticky trap. These are to catch mice and other rodents. The rodent gets stuck on the glue-like substance and then needs to be disposed of in a timely manner. They can die on the sticky traps because without movement to keep their body temperature up, they die of hypothermia. There are also live rodent traps that do not kill the rodent but that keep them trapped in a space so they can be released, away from the home. If they are not disposed of in a timely manner, they can die inside of the trap.
