Problems a

Rat or Rodent Infestation Brings

Allergic Reactions

Rodent dander or urine can trigger an allergic reaction in those who are sensitive to it. These reactions include sneezing, coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, nasal congestion, hives, eczema, and eye irritation. In more severe cases, it can even lead to asthma attacks or anaphylaxis.

Disease Carriers

Rodents carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans and other animals. They pass these off through their saliva, urine, and feces when they contaminate surfaces and food. These include the hantavirus, Lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV), salmonella, tularemia, and rat bite fever.
Rodents can also carry ticks, mites, and fleas, which can infest pets on your property and pass on the diseases they carry. These include heartworms, Lyme disease, tapeworms, and murine typhus.

Property Damage

Fleas feed on blood, which leads to the body lacking red blood cells in extreme cases. On the other hand, ticks transmit diseases like Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountains spotted fever that damages the body’s red blood cells.

Why a Comprehensive

Approach to Rodent Extermination is Necessary

Controlling a rodent infestation can be difficult, especially if you only use chemical pesticides, baits, and traps. Here’s why:

Rodents Adapt Easily to Their Environment

Rats, mice, and squirrels are highly adaptable creatures. This is how they can easily find hiding spots and food sources in various environments. With a single pest control method, they will eventually adapt to it by avoiding trapped areas and changing where they go and live.

They Can Get Aggressive When Threatened

Rodents, especially rats, are known to bite and scratch when they feel threatened, like when they are caught in a trap or bait. This poses a risk to humans and pets, especially if they are infected.

Infestations Can Escalate Quickly

Rodents reproduce rapidly. A few rats can easily turn into a full-blown infestation that leads to extensive damage to homes, yards, and buildings. Having only a singular rodent control approach will not be able to ensure that they will not be able to reproduce.

Why Integrated Pest Management is

the Best Approach to Rodent Control

1

Holistic Approach

Integrated pest management (IPM) uses a combination of pest control methods to solve the root cause of the infestation while addressing the immediate pest problem. It identifies the specific pests to create the best approach and involves ongoing monitoring to ensure a lasting result.
2

Reduced Environmental Impact

IPM does not rely on chemical pesticides. If a situation requires its use, it does so in a targeted manner. This minimizes the harm chemicals can inflict on the environment and reduces the risks to human and animal health.
3

Health and Safety

Chemical pesticides are used sparingly and in a targeted manner in integrated pest management. As a result, humans and animals are at a much lesser risk of being exposed to toxic chemicals and experiencing an allergic reaction.
4

Long Term Results

Integrated pest management addresses the conditions that attract the rodents and the existing rodent population infesting the property. This prevents future infestations and ensures a sustainable pest management strategy over time.
