Like all living organisms, rodents, be they mice, rats or others, need a place to live and food to grow and develop.
Therefore, they tend to seek refuge in our cellars and attics, but also in our gardens, just looking for a quiet place and in this hot season, where they can establish their den.
Intrusion by a rodent is never to be underestimated. In case there is any suspicion about their presence, it is important to nip this problem in the bud as soon as possible.
The control of rodents is essential especially at this time of year when the first cold weather changes their behavior; in preparation for winter they go in search of shelter and food with even more attention.
Beware of “do-it-yourself” methods: there is often the risk of not eliminating the problem completely, but only procrastinating it, thus increasing the damage in the long term.
The intervention of a specialized technician is important because he is able to adopt all the strategies suitable for pest proofing, i.e. the most appropriate fighting and confinement technique.
The pest proofing activity consists of two phases:
The first concerns a first inspection, necessary in order to identify the pest species. Depending on the type of rodent, in fact, different types and techniques of pest control will be applied.
The second phase identifies the access routes used by rodents, in order to buffer them with appropriate and possibly anti-rusting material.
With these procedures the infestation will be stopped and at the same time the introduction of new specimens into the property will be avoided.
Current deratization techniques are no longer based solely on the use of poisoned bait. Different types of traps are used in the professional sector to prevent contamination of the premises with poisons or pathogens carried by mice.
It is also good practice to adopt some preventive behaviours in everyday life that can help us in the management of this annoying problem, such as avoiding the dispersion of food used to feed pets, keeping the grass in the garden low and prune the bushes and avoiding, as far as possible, the accumulation of objects along the walls of buildings.
