Effective and Effective Methods of Control

  1. Assessment: Pest control experts will first assess the extent of the infestation and identify the specific types of burrowing rodents causing the problem.

  2. Customized Treatment Plan: Based on the assessment, a customized treatment plan is developed. This plan may involve a combination of methods to effectively control the rodent population.

  3. Trapping: Traps specifically designed for burrowing rodents are strategically placed in active tunnel areas. These traps are safe and humane, designed to capture the rodents without causing harm.

  4. Baiting: In some cases, baiting stations might be used. These stations contain bait that is poisonous to rodents. However, it’s important to use these baits with caution to prevent harm to non-target animals and pets.

  5. Exclusion: To prevent future infestations, experts may recommend measures to exclude rodents from your property. This might involve modifying landscaping or installing barriers to deter burrowing.

  6. Monitoring and Follow-up: After the initial treatment, regular monitoring is necessary to ensure the success of the control measures. Follow-up treatments might be needed to address any remaining rodents.

  7. Educational Recommendations: Pest control professionals often provide clients with tips on how to minimize conditions that attract burrowing rodents. This could include proper waste disposal, maintaining a well-trimmed lawn, and eliminating food sources.

Quality Pest Solutions should be able to provide you with a comprehensive solution tailored to your specific situation. It's important to choose a company that employs humane and environmentally-friendly methods while effectively addressing the pest problem.
