Rodents are the number one threat to West Palm Beach homes when it comes to pests. They can find their way into your home through what seem like impossible cracks in walls or even floors to slowly destroy it and threaten the health of your family.
Rodent elimination is the best way to protect your home. Our pest control experts in West Palm Beach can trap and remove mice and other pests, but there is still the need to prevent future generations from entering the home. The only sure way to do this is with snap traps and poisoned bait traps.
Despite advances in trap-building and quick-acting baits, the most effective method on rodents is still the snap trap. It acts immediately and quickly kills the rodent. That makes it often more humane than most bait traps, where the pest might suffer for hours or days before dying. Our specialists can set snap traps in any room in your home, and also place them at every possible entrance such as garage doors and points where rodents can squeeze in like the entry points for water or gas pipes and electrical or TV cables.
If there is a concern with small children or family pets, we may not be able to use snap traps at every location though. For these situations, Clean & Treat has an extensive variety of bait traps. Many of the ones we use today are designed to turn the rodent’s advantage into a way to protect your family.
Technicians place the bait inside the trap and then lock it down. The entrances allow the mice and other rodents to flatten themselves and crawl inside. This design, however, prevents children and pets from being able to reach in and touch the bait. The rodents though, eat the bait and then die, often in the trap.
Clean & Treat understands just how much a rodent infestation can cost a homeowner regarding damaged and lost property. We also understand how dangerous rodent-borne diseases like the hantavirus are, with people dying from it as recently as April of this year. If you suspect there are rodents in your home, call us today at (561) 842-4700 to help you get rid of them.
