If you suspect you have a rodent infestation at your home or business the most effective way to get rid of them is to set traps. If this is successful, you will find rodents caught in these traps. If there are many rodents around your home, you may need to do this several times until the problem is solved.
If the rodent trap clean-up intimidates you or the rodents won’t respond to your traps, we recommend calling for professional help.
It’s wise to contact a professional pest control company, such as Hill Country Pest Control Fredericksburg because they multiply at a rapid rate and can spread diseases. Unlike ants, which are annoying but usually harmless, rats and mice are dangerous creatures to keep around. In addition to spreading disease, they can carry fleas and ticks which may carry their diseases if they bite you or a pet. They can even chew through wires that rarely lead to fires and more often lead to expensive repairs to cable TV, wifi, electricity, and so on.
As for cost, every situation is different. Many pest control companies such as Hill Country Pest Control Fredericksburg offer free consultations and estimates as well. Although there will surely be a cost to hiring an exterminator to get rid of rodents, the cost is reasonable when compared to the cost of the repairs to your home’s wiring and potential medical bills for your pets or family members.
The cost of getting rid of rodents will depend on a few factors: Generally, more work = more expensive.
The extent of infestation – How many traps, bait, and cleanup visits are needed?
Size of your property – How many holes and cracks need to be sealed?
Accessibility – Is the infestation in a hard-to-reach area?
Clean up – What cleaning measures are needed to avoid Hantavirus and other airborne pathogens left behind by the rodents?
These are the types of questions that a pest professional will ask themselves during a consultation to give you a fair estimate.
If you do not have a rodent infestation but have spotted a rodent on or near the property, we recommend preventive treatments. If rodents are already commonplace in your home or business, we recommend hiring professional help as soon as possible to get the lowest price.
