There are a variety of rodents which infest southern Utah’s. The most common are the roof rat, wood rat, Norway rat, house mouse, field mouse & deer mouse. These species vary greatly in their nesting habits, food preferences, and behavior. Without an in-depth knowledge of these attributes of different rodent species, control is difficult at best. Rodents are known to transmit a myriad of diseases to human. Control should only be done by a licensed and trained professional. Proper preparation is necessary for a successful service. The following steps must be completed prior to our treatment.
Step 1: Clear the exterior of your home to allow uninterrupted access to the perimeter of the property.
Step 2: Remove any excessive yard waste such as yard clippings, mulch piles, leaf litter, etc.
Step 3: Turn off your sprinklers if they are on directly before, during, or after our service application.
Step 4: Clean your home and remove debris from the floor (children’s toys, cloths, etc.).
Step 5: Insure there is a safe location for our pest control specialists to access the roof if necessary.
Step 6: The service may require the removal of sheet-rock, attic insulation, or fascia. In the event that such actions become necessary to properly provide a quality service we will need those areas fully cleared. Your pest control specialist will advise you if this will be necessary.
After the Treatment
Insure all rodent droppings that are found after the removal or elimination of the rodents is quickly swept up and thrown away. Rodent droppings have negative health attributes and should not be left or swept behind furniture. Your pest control specialist will schedule a return visit to ensure you are 100% satisfied with your service and that the rodent problem has been eliminated.
