Keep Rats and Mice Away with Rodent Protection

You’ve found the secret to rodent removal: exclusion and protection! Once Honest Rodent Proofing has completed rodent proofing in your house, we can offer you a follow-up Rodent Protection Program. This follow-up plan is custom-designed by one of our pest management professionals to work with your house’s specific layout and surroundings. Because of this, rodent protection is one of the most important services we can provide to homeowners and business owners. It will help reduce the exterior rodent population around your property and minimize the likelihood of re-infestation.

01

Why Rodent Protection Matters

While proofing is important for restoring your house, and eliminating existing entry points, the Rodent Protection Program or the Bi-Monthly Perimeter Defense keeps rats and mice out. It reduces the likelihood of re-infestation by stopping new rats from getting inside which may be attracted by telltale signs left by the previous rats and mice.

​Specifically, rats and mice use urine scent trails (pheromones) to navigate from areas where they gather food to wherever they nest. Since rodents were nesting in your house, they have left urine scent trails in and around it. This makes it easier for them to return to your home through secluded entry points after foraging for food.

​The bigger problem is that other rodents will instinctively use these scent trails (pheromones) after the original infestation has been cleaned out. For those other rodents, the trails are like a signpost letting them know that your home is a good place to live, eat, and reproduce in. Once a rodent detects such a scent trail emanating from your house, it will attempt to find entry points. And if it can’t find any, it will make new ones. Which means before you know it, you could be dealing with thousands of dollars of new rodent damage. This is an issue that proofing alone can’t solve.

How Rodent Protection Works

Because Honest Rodent Proofing has an amazing success rate of eliminating rodent infestations, we know how determined they can be. They will continue to look for and make new entry points into your homes and businesses unless they are stopped. This remains true even after your home has been sealed up. Because of this, at this stage in rodent control…

​We will:

  • Conduct another inspection to assess exclusion repairs, and to identify new entry points around your house if there are any.

  • Place outside perimeter defense boxes (We NEVER use poison)

  • Remove any rodents that have been caught by traps, which were put in place during the initial inspection.

  • Place new traps around your property based on our follow-up rodent protection plan, which will help to stop a re-infestation.

Why Rodent Control is Imperative

It’s imperative to control the outdoor rodents around your home by reducing their population. Doing so will make re-infestation that much less likely. This is why your rodent protection plan will include new trapping systems that keep new rats and mice away. Did you know that new construction in your neighborhood could cause rats to try your home for shelter? There are many reasons rodents will look for shelter, so it is best to exclude them from your property so they will move elsewhere.
