Keeping critters at bay

by | Nov 18, 2016 | Pest Control

Once the first touches of frost touch the trees and the leaves begin to fall you can bet that all the critters that have been enjoying the summer months will be looking to move indoors. Before you know it squirrels are decided to winter in the eaves of your home, mice have taken over your garage and rats have found their way into the basement. Once these critters have found their way inside they begin to destroy your home; chewing the insulation of wires, nesting in the attic insulation and knowing at your woodwork.

It’s even worse than that:

When you know you have problems with unwanted visitors you must arrange pest removal in Fauquier County as soon as possible. Not only will these creatures destroy your property, they are ridden with disease that can pose serious problems for you and your family. On top of all that, it only takes half a dozen mice to become 60 in only three months. If you don’t get rid of the problem right away, it will only get a lot worse.

Eliminating these pests from your home:

The three worst offenders that technicians dealing with pest removal in Fauquier County deal with are squirrels, mice and rats. There are basically two ways to deal with the problem; the use of poisons or traps. Poisons take minimal effort and the results are quick, the problem is, you never know if the critters will die outside or inside.

There is no doubt as to the outcome when the pest removal team uses traps. Mice and rats are best dealt with lethal traps, squirrels usually are trapped live. This approach is obviously more humane but it is a bother because the traps have to be monitored daily.

Virginia law allows for trapped squirrels to be disposed of in a humane way, it is always best to rely on the knowledge of those involved in pest removal in Fauquier County to decide on what is acceptable and what is not.
