Why Traps Alone Are Not a Permanent Solution

Rodent Caught in Trap - Why Traps Alone Are Not a Permanent Solution graphic

One of the worst things a homeowner may have to deal with is the prospect of a rodent infestation on their property. Just the idea of rats and other pests scurrying around within the walls and in the crawl spaces and attic is terrible!

Not only that, rodents can create unhealthy conditions for you and your family, not to mention the significant structural damage that could result. While it is important to make sure the rodents are trapped and removed, rodent removal will not permanently solve it.

Trapping rodents and pests can indeed remove all of the unwanted critters in your home at that time, but it does not prevent others from coming back. Attic Projects not only performs humane rodent removal but also rodent-proofs your attic and crawl space, preventing them from coming back and providing you with a more permanent solution.

What are some signs that rodents are present in my home?

It’s always wise to know what to look for when it comes to rodents in your home, and there are tell-tale signs that you may have unwanted visitors. There are some obvious things to look out for, including brown smudges on the walls that may be caused by rodents rubbing against them and rat droppings in drawers, cabinets, and other closed places.

Most obvious is the sound of scurrying behind walls and in your attic. Other things to look out for are a foul smell and evidence of nesting materials that have been collected in cozy spaces. If you believe you have trouble, it’s always best to give a rodent removal service like Attic Projects a call. Let the pros handle your infestation so that it’s taken care of for good!

How do the rodent removal and rodent proofing processes work?

Once we’ve assessed the situation and come up with a plan, we’ll start by humanely trapping and removing the rodents in your home. This is usually a multi-step method that takes a few days or weeks, depending on the infestation size.

We use only humane traps and ensure that the process is carried out properly and effectively. Once the rodent removal process is complete, it’s time to rodent-proof your home!

We recommend a three-step action plan to make sure your rodent problem is taken care of for good. First, we thoroughly inspect your property, looking for gaps and cracks that a rodent could use for access. Next, the Attic Projects professional will use steel mesh and professional-grade sealant to permanently close off any avenues of approach.

As the last step, we’ll clean, sanitize, disinfect, and deodorize your crawl spaces and attic, erasing all evidence of the rodents and leaving you with a healthy home!

How do I get started taking care of my rodent problem?

That’s the easiest part! Just give us a call. We’ll come out, perform an inspection, then give you a free estimate of what it will take to get rid of those unwanted houseguests.

We look forward to helping you make your home as rodent-free and healthy as possible!
