Austin Rodent Control

2 rats cartoon 200x168How can I get Austin rodent control? This is one of the most frequent questions I am asked by customers, especially during the winter months, is how to stop unwanted guests (aka rodents) from entering their house. My first answer to them is to trim the trees away from the house. As beautiful as trees may be they can act as a highway for rodents to easily access your roof. From the roof there are many different venues the rodent can use to get inside the property. The chimney is a great example of such an entry a point; roof intersects and vent pipes are very common entry points as well. When closing any entry points found do NOT use foam. Rodents can chew through foam very easily (flashing or hardware cloth is best). Given a little attention to the condition of your property your rodent problems can be a thing of the past. You can also get a rodent inspection by a professional anytime, just contact us!

To recap Austin rodent control:

  • Trim all trees back away from the roof
  • Check for any openings around the house where rodents may enter
  • Close all holes found with hardy materials, NOT foam

If all else fails call in the prosand get an aggressive trapping plan in place. Do not use poison alone in any enclosed area, as this can be a very smelly solution.
