RATS - MICE PEST CONTROL
Rodents Pest Control.
Why are rodents considered a pest?
Rodents are considered a pest because they can eat and contaminate food, do physical damage by gnawing on wiring, packaging, upholstery and food containers. Rodents can spread disease by direct food contact, leave urine and faeces where the activity is and be a nuisance by running through the roof making noise.
First Strike Pest Control technicians will inspect and advise the client of a treatment plan using traps and rodent baits. Where possible, we will close entry points and advise the client of ways of changing the environment.
Areas of treatment.
Clients will advise where the issues of rodent activity have occurred. First Strike Pest Control will then implement a baiting or trapping plan of action.
