Putting rat poison down won't always get rid of your rat problems for good, but Avon Pest Control will

If you have rat problems in your home you may be thinking about getting rid of them with poison – this, after all, is the way people have done it for a long time. While it is true that poison works, it is not effective if you are dealing with more than a couple of rats. In fact, although poison has been used for rat eradication worldwide, their numbers only continue to grow.

There are two problems that you will face if you choose to use rat poison. The first is that you will not kill them all – you may be able to get one or two but the rest will catch on and avoid anything that has the poison in it. The second problem is this – once the rats eat the poison they curl up and die in hard to reach places. In a few days they start to decompose and then the smell permeates your home. The smell of dead and decomposing rats is very hard to get rid of.

If you suspect that you have a rat problem it is vital to call a professional pest control company straightaway before they breed and their numbers become even bigger. This is the only way to ensure your rat problem is taken care of. Exterminators are experienced in dealing with rats regardless of the numbers. They have the proper equipment and chemicals to make sure that they get every last rat in your home. Better yet, they block any entrance that rats may use to come into your home – they usually come in through small holes in the property or through the roof.

A professional exterminator will block all the gaps to ensure that you don’t get any further rat problems.

Don’t let one mouse turn into hundred; call Avon Pest Control without delay

You have seen a mouse or two in your home and are wondering whether you should do anything about it. The truth is that many homeowners don’t take mice in the home seriously until they have an infestation. If you see a mouse it is important to investigate and find out whether there are more. You will hear them scurrying around at night and you will also see rat droppings around the house. Check furniture that is made out of wood and fabric – mice love to eat that kind of thing. You may also find mice nests in the attic or in warm, dark corners. 

The reason why you should take mice seriously is how fast they breed. They breed exceptionally quickly; you may think you only have one or two mice in your home but before you know it this number can increase to hundreds because they breed so quickly. To break it down, mice have a gestation period of 3 weeks and they give birth to an average of 8 mice. If you don’t take action right away you can be sure that before long your home will be overrun and you will have to fork out a lot of money to do repairs to your property. 

Some people recommend rat poison as a solution. That is not the way to go; for starters, you will not get more than a few. The other thing about poisoning mice is that once they die in hidden corners they will stink up your home. The best thing to do when you suspect that you have rats is to call in a pest control company. They are experienced in rodent removal and the great thing with them is that they provide a lasting solution – you will not have mice in your home for a long time.
