KEEP RATS & MICE OUT WITH PESTWORX

Ann from PESTWORX

Rodents can cause considerable damage to homes and risk to our health. It makes sense to keep them out of your home or workplace.
Proof your building - Rats & Mice can fit through small gaps. Check around your building for gaps particularly around pipe-work. Seal any gaps & attach draft excluders to doors. Check for overhanging foliage - Rats often climb trees & drop down onto the roof & enter under the edge of the roof.
Baits & Traps – Bait is the most effective & efficient way to deal with infestations. Make sure you use secure bait stations to keep pets and children safe. Traps are also useful, although rats and mice can become trap shy. They are safe and effective when used in conjunction with baits. Bait traps with peanut butter or chocolate. Place the traps against walls and behind furniture where rodents travel.
