Need advice on rat catching?  What are the best rat traps to get rid of rats quickly?

Rats in the home can be a serious problem and quickly grow out of control based on their ability to breed quickly.  Getting rid of rats permanently may take a professional exterminator specializing in rat and rodent control.  If you would like to get rid of rats on your own, traps instead of poison are usually the best DIY approach.  The most common rat traps include:

-Snap traps

-Glue traps

-Spring-loaded wood traps

-Electric box traps

Wondering how to get rid of bats?  Especially to get rid of bats in attic?

Bats around the home are awesome as they feed on mosquitoes and other annoying insects.  Bats in the home are another story.  Bats inside your home or attic can become a problem that quickly grows out of control.  Not to mention the dangers of bat guano and histoplasmosis.

The only way to keep bats out of your home or attic is to make the structural repairs necessary to prevent them from coming in in the first place.  Bats can get through very small cracks and openings so structural repairs need to take that into account.  Before making structural repairs, it is critical to make sure all bats and possibly babies are out of your home.  Getting rid of bats can take time.

Bat arms are an excellent choice to allow bats to leave your home safely and not return. Bats can fly out of the bat arms but can’t return as it is a one-way device.  After confirming that all bats are out of your home remove the bat arms and start structural repairs as quickly as possible.

I found squirrel poop in my attic?  How to trap squirrels?

Finding poop in your attic from an unknown animal can be alarming.  The first step to taking care of this rodent or squirrel problem is to identify what you are dealing with.  Squirrel poop and rat poop are two of the most common types of poop to find in your attic.  Rat poop is larger than squirrel poop up to 3/4 inch in length, dark in color with sharp ends.  Squirrel droppings or poop looks like pellets with rounded ends and are lighter in color.

To get rid of squirrels in the attic, first identify where the squirrels are getting in.  Structural repairs are a must after removing squirrels from the attic.  Trapping squirrels can be difficult and may take the skills of a pest company specializing in wildlife removal.  Squirrels can be trap-shy so using a variety of traps with baits including seeds, peanut butter, and/or nuts is a good idea.

What kind of bed bug treatments will kill baby bed bugs?

Finding blood fecal stains, shed skins, or live bugs in the bedroom and on your mattress can be alarming.  These are common bed bug signs and if small baby bed bugs are present, it means you have an urgent bed bug problem that could quickly grow out of control.  Do-it-yourself bed bug treatments are rarely effective.  Bed bugs have evolved and grown resistant to some of the most common insecticides.

The critical first step to getting rid of bed bugs permanently is bed bug preparation.  This can take hours to days to complete the right way.  After that bed bug treatments can be divided into three groups: bio-pesticides, insecticides, and heat treatments.  Sometimes, a combination of two or all three of these bed bug treatment methods is necessary.

What are the best termite treatments to control termites?

There are two types of termite treatments to control, prevent, or get rid of termites.  The first type of treatment is a pre-construction termite prevention treatment.  Required by law in most states it involves the application of liquid termiticides prior to pouring the slab.  This type of treatment can help prevent termites in your home for up to 12 years.

The second type of termite treatment is post-construction termite treatments.  These treatments can either be preventative or can occur following a termite infestation in your home.  The two most common post-construction termite treatments are liquid termiciticides and termite bait systems.

Liquid termiticide applications require digging a trench around the foundation of your home and filling that trench with termiticide.  These applications can provide protection of your home for 5-10 years.  Termite bait systems are the latest technology in cutting edge termite control.  Bait stations are placed around the perimeter of your home and baits are replaced annually.  Termite bait systems, unlike liquid applications, do not ever need to be re-installed or repeated.
