Apex Pest Control, a pest control Leeds, West Yorkshire, UK service provider, has warned about pests like rats and mice invading homes and businesses in Leeds and neighbouring areas. As the winter season is fast approaching, it brings with it unwelcome guests to homes and other buildings as rats and mice look for warmer places to build their nests. The presence of food also attracts these pests to homes, which means people will soon find themselves facing a rat or mice infestation, with its corresponding inconveniences and health risks. These rodents may also increase the risk of electrical fires as they gnaw on electrical wires in the home or building. The solution is to have the property inspected for rats and mice so that the proper infestation control measures can be applied.
The pest control firm also advises homeowners and property owners on what they can to proactively prevent rodent infestation. They can: install door sweeps on outside doors; seal splits and holes outside the property; display vents and openings to chimneys; keep cellars, attics and crawl rooms dry and well aerated; store food in airtight containers and remove rubbish routinely; eliminate all moisture areas; change loosened mortar and weather stripping around the windows and cellar foundation; store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house; and inspect grocery bags, boxes and other packages brought into the house.
Tony Johnson, head pest technician at Apex Pest Control, says, “At Apex, we offer rat control across Yorkshire. Local rat control gets tailored to each property needing rat control, as no two jobs are the same. Our professional rat removal team uses effective control methods to eradicate a black rat or brown rat pests for homes and businesses. We follow a simple process: survey, treatment, follow up and prevention.”
The first thing that they’ll do is inspect the home or building and adjacent areas for signs of rats in order to determine the presence and the size of the infestation. They will also look for places like water and drain pipes that may need to sealed up to minimise the entry or exit of rats. At the present time, conventional rat traps are no longer effective against a family of rats. Apex Pest Control makes use of baiting using a range of pesticides for poisoning rats. They will choose the proper grade of professional rodenticide for the bait stations. And finally, they will conduct follow up visits in order to get rid of dead rats and examine the situation whether any rats are coming back. After being satisfied that they haven’t seen any more rats for a set period, they will declare that the property is pest-free.
With regards to mice control, the team from Apex Pest Control will also conduct a survey of the property. They will look for signs of mice infestation like holes, nest, runs, smear marks, knowing, damage, tracks, dead or live mice, smell, and droppings. After completing the survey, they will put baits in various areas that have been visited by mice. They will use smaller amounts of baits but there will be more baits to be positioned in the property because mice are omnivorous and tend to feed from a number of different points.
They also take great care in placing the baits in order to prevent human contact and non-target species. To do this, they will ensure that some or all of the baits are locked in tamper resistant bait stations in a wax block formulation. All of the baits will be in a second generation rodenticide formulation. And just like with rat control, they will conduct several follow up visits. The frequency of these visits will be determined by the size of the mice infestation and during this time, baiting will continue until the baits are no longer being taken. They will then look for dead mice and get rid of them to avoid problems with odours and insect infestation.
