Why You Should Never Use Store-Bought Rat Traps

Rodents can carry a number of contagious diseases that can be dangerous for humans. If your home or business has a rodent infestation, it can deter customers and visitors. Thankfully, there are pest control solutions you can use to treat an infestation. Through the help of a professional pest control specialist, you can safely remove rodents from your home and prevent the infestation from returning.

The Dangers of Buying Rodent Traps

There are a number of reasons why you should not buy rodent traps from the store. Rats are more likely to be fearful of new things than mice are, so they will try to avoid the trap. If they avoid the trap, then it will not work. If they sniff the trap and accidentally set it off, they will be afraid to return to it later on. Rats are smarter than mice, so they can easily learn how to avoid traps.

In addition, your rodent traps will not be able to kill enough rodents to make a difference. A pair of brown rats can produce up to 2,000 babies in a single year. This means you have to catch every single rodent in your home if you want to successfully remove your pest problem. Otherwise, you could end up with a massive infestation in just a few weeks.

How Over-the-Counter Pest Killers Work

The problem with over-the-counter pest killers is that they rarely work as well as they are supposed to. Instead of killing rodents, they have a tendency to repel them instead. When they do kill rodents like they are supposed to, it is sometimes because they are being used at an extremely high concentration. If misapplied or misplaced, these products could pose an unnecessary risk to your pets and family.
