Rodent Removal &
Rodent proofing is a vital part of a complete rodent control program. The objective is to close all present and potential openings which may serve as entries for rats and mice. This means changing building details to prevent rats and mice from entering. It is important not to seal rodents indoors until baiting, trapping and removal is completed.
Tips to Rodent Proof Your Yard in Marietta & Metro Atlanta
Remove defective garabge cans and provide a sufficient amount of garbage cans. A 32 gallon container with a tight fitting lid is best. Also, do not litter.
Drain and wrap garbage before disposing and remove pet food immediately and clean up animal waste.
Keep all drains covered and secure and make sure hoses are not leaking. Get rid of any standing water in yard and fix any defective pipes or drains.
Get rid of junk, lumber, old boxes, discarded appliances, chairs, and bedding on the ground. Also, remove abandoned vehicles.
The Dixie Wildilfe Technician begins with a thorough inspection of the premises and locates openings larger than one-quarter of an inch, and openings where utilities enter. We check floor drains and sewer pipe grates, as well as make sure doors, windows and screens are fitting tightly.
Rodent Proofing & Control
The materials used for rodent proofing are rodent resistant, such as sheet metal, heavy wire mesh, concrete, or brick and mortar. Steel wool is a good for plugging holes because rodetns cannot chew through it. To prevent rats and mice from using wires and pipes to enter, the appropriate metal guards should be used, such as a flat funnel twelve inches wide for a single vertical line next to the building, and an eighteen inch radius disk guard for horizontal lines.
After the property is sealed and the problem is under control, we continue to monitor both inside and outside your residence to make sure your property is rodent free. Remember, re-infestation can occur inside rodent proofed buildings when doors and windows are left open. Re-inspection is necessary to be certain rodent proofing remains effective. This process must be repeatedly evaluated to assure control. If you notice rats on the outside of the property, locate their nest source as well as their sources of food and water and eliminate if possible.
