Homemade Rodent Control

Rodents are some of the most adaptable creatures on the planet and can be extremely difficult to exterminate. They are destructive pests and are carriers of disease in both metropolitan and rural areas.

Homeowners may seek homemade solutions to their rodent problems.  They may try a variety of repellents such as mothballs or even essential oils. They also may try to plug up rodent entry points with steel wool or pot scrubber pads, which is a bad idea, since those products usually rust and fall apart when exposed to moisture.

These homemade methods are not capable of addressing full-blown rodent infestations. They also may create additional problems in the form of rust-stained surfaces. It is recommended that anyone experiencing a rodent infestation contact a pest control professional to arrange for a consultation. Professionals are trained not only to address current infestations but also to prevent future infestations.
