Rodents Are Coming !
November 2012


Rodents are coming. The rodents are coming. Mark my words you'll be inundated with rodent calls with the first cold snap.  Prepare for Rodent Infestation calls now!


Common signs of Rodent Infestation

  • Rodents have muscle memory. They use their muscles to detect the pathways to use again and again. That's why they usually travel along the side of something. This is where you place your traps.
  • Droppings and urine are located wherever they rest or travel.
  • Gnaw marks darken over time; fresh marks are light. Mice make scratch marks approx. 1/16 of an inch; rats make 1/8 inch scratch marks.  Larger marks are typically squirrel.
  • Rodents leave body oil, grease, and dirt along their paths. New marks smear; old ones flake.
  • Use a tracking powder like mason's line chalk for detecting difficult to determine areas of use.  Their tails drag and footprints will be evident the next day.

Tips and Hints

  1. Use food that is MORE attractive than what's available. (N.B. Squirrel & Rodent Paste Bait is a professionals favorite!)
  2. Our motto: Make the animal work for the bait! Place bait in bottom of the bait cup on the snap trap trigger or tie down bait at the back of a cage. 
  3. Bait glue boards.  BUT do not use an oily substance as this will reduce the glue board's stickiness. Keep glue boards away from dust and wet.
Use nesting materials like dental floss or cotton threads with a drop of bait or lure to attract mice and rats. 

As always thank you for your valued business!
