Trapping and exclusion, not harmful toxins and poisons

Treatments should not include poisons, glueboards, or other inhumane practices. Not only can it take the rats a long time to die, poisons can also harm or kill other animals such as birds of prey, cats, dogs, etc.There is no reason to use rodent baits to control rodent populations. Baits often will eliminate the problem but can lead to even worse issues. Secondary poisoning is one. Rodents can also die in the walls, causing terrible smells and possible health hazards. We use a trapping and exclusion program that not only eliminates the existing population but also prevents future issues.
