How to overcome rats

Regardless of whether you’re dealing with hornets, dealing with fleas, or dealing with rats, it’s important to use the right tools for the job, but it’s even more important that you have the right people for the job. Here’s why.

Specific Professional Grade Products

Professional pest control companies will have access and know how with using materials that it’s better off that everyone else stay away from. For example, there’s a new product called Racumin foam that is extremely effective for dealing with rats, but also has the disadvantage of being a bit dangerous for regular people to use.

For example, the product has all sorts of warnings on it including about how you can only use it indoors, how it contains a percentage of a deadly chemical, about how it can’t be used on or near anything that uses electricity at all, about how it can’t be used with any other pest control product, and so on.

The right professionals will know how to use it though, and it’s been proven effective for use against rats of around 20 grams or mice of around 4 grams or around the size of a tennis ball.

Being Safe

The problem with trying to take care of a rat infestation problem yourself is that it’s easy to make a mistake if you don’t have the experience and proper equipment. A lot of pest control people will have extensive safety equipment such as professional grade masks and professional grade gloves and suits as well as a number of professional safety procedures for making sure that they don’t accidently get exposed to a deadly poison meant for rats.

Rats are large enough that if you get exposed to the poison meant for them, it can have serious consequences on your long term health. As a result, try to find professionals who have access to Racumin foam so that they can take care of the problem for you.

How to deal with a mice infestation

When it comes to dealing with hornets, dealing with fleas, dealing with mice or dealing with any kind of infestation, the important thing is to go with a professional pest control company. Here are a few reasons why.

Traps

Professional pest control companies will be able to lay down traps suited specifically for the particular type of mice that you have infesting your house or other building. There are actually multiple different types of mice out there including field mice and others, so the type you have actually matters.

The pest control company will be able to figure out precisely what kind you have by looking at the droppings, through surveillance, and through other means.They will then be best suited to figuring out what sorts of traps will work, what sorts of bait will work the best, and so on. After all, if you try doing this yourself chances are pretty good that you’ll get it wrong because it’s easy to underestimate or overestimate the size of the traps you need or what you should bait them with if you don’t have the equipment or expertise to figure it out on your own.

For example, many people think that mice like cheese and so they might bait their traps with cheese. But the truth is that pest control companies will be able to identify the sorts of food products that the actual mice in the wild would want, such as peanut butter or grain. Mice in the wild don’t often get access to cheese or milk, after all.

Spraying and Other Procedures

While capturing individual mice can certainly help, professionals will often have more experience with the procedures needed to remove the problem entirely instead of going one mouse at a time. The key is to root them out at their source often by using sprays.



This is one of those things that’s difficult to handle by yourself while being entirely safe at the same time.

Racumin Pesticide (Rodenticide) Foam



It’s important to use a professional company to get rid of rats. Professional pest control companies will have experience dealing with hornets, dealing with fleas, dealing with rats, and dealing with many other types of pests. It’s important to check what type of experience a pest control company has before moving forward with them, however. Here are a few of the methods such companies might use.
New Foam Product

There’s a new foam product out there called Racumin Rodenticide Foam that’s specifically designed for helping you eliminate rats in your home. The idea is that it’s easy to apply and it specifically works based on the normal behavior of rats.
The grooming behavior of rats is how the product works to get rid of them. The advantage with the product is that it can be used in many areas in the house where it’s not normally possible to use other kinds of rat poison such as for baiting.
The fact that the product is non-bait is definitely an advantage that many pest control experts will use. It works especially well on the Norway rat, or House mice. The product only works indoors and its designed for use in the UK and Ireland.  Essentially pest control experts will place the material on areas where rats are known to walk up and down, or especially in places where they enter or exits such as known rat holes.
Essentially, all the experts have to do is put the material in a place where a rat will walk over it. Once it’s on their skin and fur, they will transfer it into their mouth themselves by washing their fur with their tongues. This means that you don’t have to worry about getting the rat to eat anything which can be difficult or at least, considerably more difficult than simply putting it in an area where the rats might walk by.
