It is a fact that mice and rats cause home fires. They will constantly chew because their teeth continue to grow. They will chew through most anything, including sheet rock, plastic wire covers and that foam stuff that you buy at the hardware store to prevent them from coming in. If you need a rodent extermination service, call the experts at Buggsies Pest Services Inc. in the Wappingers Falls & Poughkeepsie, NY area today!
Let's do some math. Female mice can give birth to a litter of up to 14 youngsters. (Usually 6 to 8) One female can have 5 to 10 liters per year. Those new females reach sexual maturity in about 6 weeks. If you're using a calculator, this adds up to a LOT of mice.In addition to fires, they carry DISEASE. Rodents transmit disease to humans such as Typhus fever, Plague, Infectious Jaundice, Salmonella and YES, Bubonic plague.
Mice can get in through an opening the size of a dime. They come in through these openings and take up residence in your home. Once inside, they look for the same things that we do. Food, water and shelter. Mice are excellent climbers and can pretty much climb up anything, including walls and pipes. Once inside, you now have unwanted house guests. Mice need very little water to survive. The condensations on your water pipes are just fine for them. Then, they make their way to the kitchen area. You will often see their droppings around the stove. I have serviced homes where there were they were nesting IN the stove area. I've also serviced homes where mice and rats have totally taken over the home.
We are the experts in rodent extermination service. This MUST be a combined effort between the two of us. The first thing that we do is a complete exterior inspection. This will tell us where the problem is coming from. This is the most important step. If they can't get in, they can't multiply. First, we seal all entry points with steel wool. As I mentioned, they will gnaw through any kind of foam. By using steel wool, they will cut their gums when the try to gnaw and realize that this is not the place to go. Than we seal those areas to keep the steel wool intact. Once this process is complete, we are able to bait the home. This will take at least 2 visits. We use a combination of baits throughout your home to eliminate them. DON'T worry. The baits that we use are enclosed in tamper proof boxes. They cannot be opened by anyone without a key. We also use scented glue traps, snap traps, tracking powder and all other baits allowed by NYS law. Now that they are trapped inside, you may ask the question that most homeowners ask. "Where are they going to die? Will there be an odor?" My answer is....They are going to die where ever they want and Yes there will be an odor. We do have several scents to offset the odor and it should only last about 2 weeks. This is a small price to pay compared to the damage that these rodents can cause. Please call us with any questions or concerns. 845-476-1899
