Control Dangerous And Damaging Rodents With Covenant Pest Control

Keeping rodents off your Boerne area property is one of the best ways to protect your health and your home from pests. Rodent infestations are one of the worst pest infestations you can get because they spread disease and destroy property at the same time. This means you have to pull out the big guns in order to defend yourself from these unsanitary pests.

Rodents pack a one-two punch of danger. The diseases they spread are no joke, and this is the first danger they pose. Rodents threaten your health in a variety of ways because they spread illnesses such as:

  • Hantavirus
  • Leptospirosis
  • Rat-bite fever
  • Salmonellosis
  • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV)
  • Tularemia
  • Lassa fever
  • Eosinophilic meningitis

The second threat rodents pose is to your property, and it is no less severe. All rodents have front incisors that are constantly growing, which means they have to grind them down all the time. This causes rodents to chew on everything from your home's plumbing work to its wooden components and even its electrical wiring, which is a common cause of accidental house fires.

Rodents are another one of those pests that home and business owners really can't handle on their own. Rodent control is difficult for a variety of reasons. The main reason is that rats and mice breed at lightning speed. Grocery store methods like snap traps and glue boards just cannot keep up. For every rodent they eliminate, there are many more they don't. Not only this, but rodents are not like other pests. They're very smart and are often able to outfox store-bought control methods.

Rodent infestations can also be much worse if you are attracting rodents from outside as well as supporting a breeding population that's already inside. There are a lot of innocuous ways to attract more and more rodents to your property, things that you might not even think of that are important to avoid. 

Most of the time, a combination of unknown rodent attractants and ineffective control methods will mean you alone cannot do much more than temporarily reduce the rodent population around your home. Here at Covenant Pest Control, our rodent control methods are far superior. Our effective rodent control process consists of multiple steps, each one of them designed to increase the effectiveness of our professional-grade products and techniques. Rodents may be able to get around over-the-counter products, but they cannot get around us.

Our Rodent Control Process

The first thing we do when we come out to your property is perform a thorough inspection. This allows us to figure out what types of rodents are invading your home and how they are getting inside. Discovering all rodent entry points is a vital part of eliminating them from your home.

Once we determine what kind of rodents are infesting your home, we will develop a treatment plan customized to your specific problem. Bait boxes are usually the best method for eliminating house rodents like rats and mice from your home. We can also discuss your options for excluding rodents from the entry points they're using.

Bait box management is important after the initial placement of the boxes. We offer bait refills as a standalone service and also as part of our Integrated Pest Management plan. We will work with you to figure out what type of follow-up service works best with your schedule and budget to keep rodent infestations from coming back.
