5 steps for DIY rat and mouse control
It’s worrisome to see a mouse in your home or a rat in the yard.

 

Not only can rodents make you sick, but their gnawing causes considerable damage to cars and homes. They’ve even been known to start fires by chewing up the electrical wiring.

 

It’s best to get rid of these pests right away, before they cause bigger, costlier problems. You can do this effectively by following 5 do-it-yourself steps from the rodent control experts at Pest HQ:

 

  1. Know your foe. Take a few minutes to learn about rats and mice: their biology, behaviour and why they’re in your home or yard in the first place. The more intel you have, the better you’ll be at inspecting, monitoring and getting rid of the rodents.

  2. End the appeal. Make your home and yard less attractive to rodents by eliminating access to the three things they need to survive: food, water and shelter.

  3. Find entry holes. Thoroughly and patiently inspect your home and yard to identify where the rodents are active and how they’re getting inside. Use proper tools and protective gear.

  4. Eliminate the pests. Use the best rodent control products approved in Canada, including the top 5 for rats. Pest HQ sells discounted rat and mice control product bundles that ship fast or can be picked up at our headquarters.

  5. Prevent future intrusions. Seal up holes, cracks and gaps found during your inspection with rodent-proof exclusion materials, and always be on the lookout for signs of rodent activity so you can act immediately to deter them.
