RAT & MOUSE TRAPPING AND BAITING IN IRVINE
To control rats & mice in a building is the safest and most effective method for rodent and pest control in homes and businesses in the Irvine area. Baiting inside homes to control rats is not recommended because the dead rats or mice may end up in the wall, attic or other hard to reach place. While trapping is generally recommended for rodent pest control indoors, when the number of rats and mice around a building is high, you will need to use either baits to exterminate large number and gain adequate control, especially if there is a continuous re-infestation from surrounding areas. Enclosed bait stations, are place around the building. They are checked and refilled every two months to maintain a steady supply of bait for the rodents.
“Building rats out” is the most successful and long lasting form of control in buildings. Seal cracks and openings in building foundations, and any openings for water pipes, electric wires, sewer pipes, drain spouts, and vents. Use sheet metal, stainless steel mesh to cover possible entry points. No hole larger than 1/4 inch should be left unsealed to exclude both rats and house mice. Make sure door sweeps, windows, and screens fit tightly. Because rats and house mice are excellent climbers, openings above ground level must be plugged. Rat proofing against roof rats usually requires more time to find entry points than for Norway rats because of their climbing ability. Roof rats often enter buildings at the roof line area so be sure that all access points in the roof are sealed. If roof rats are travelling on overhead utility wires, Contact the utility company for information and assistance with measures that can be taken to prevent this.
Rat Proofing Check List:
Repair or replace damaged ventilation screen around the foundation and under eaves.
Seal all openings around pipes, cables, and wires that enter through walls or the foundation.
Be sure all windows that can be opened are screened and that the screens are in good condition.
Cover all chimneys with a spark arrester.
Make sure internal screens on roof and attic air vents are in good repair.
Cover rooftop plumbing vent pipes in excess of 2 inches in diameter with screens over their tops.
Make sure all exterior doors are tight fitting and weatherproofed at the bottom.
Seal gaps beneath garage doors with a gasket or weather-stripping.
Install self-closing exits or screening to clothes dryer vents to the outside.
Keep side doors to the garage closed, especially at night.
