What control measures can be taken against rodents?
The most important part of rodent control is good house-keeping & hygiene practices to ensure that conditions remain unfavourable for infestations to develop by reducing the amount of readily available food and shelter. Good maintenance practices should help to restrict potential entry points and deny access to potential harbourages; these include proofing with brush strips, cavity sealing, meshing, wire wool and expanding foam. Using a reputable pest control contractor like Santia to apply rodent baits, contact poisons and traps in a responsible and professional manner will help to achieve control. Rodenticides are the most widely used control method which include edible baits, liquid baits and contact rodenticides. Physical traps (sprung wire killing traps) also play a significant part in controlling infestations. Santia also supply the Electronic Mouse Detection System (eMd) which offers an effective solution to pesticide free rodent monitoring.
