Rodent Control in Sarasota, Florida: How do you protect your home or business from rodents?

Sarasota, Florida, is home to various rodent species, including mice, rats, and squirrels.  These rodents can cause severe damage to your home or business if left uncontrolled. Below, we’ll describe the procedures that the pest control professionals at Rodent Solutions use for preventing rodent infestations and rodent control in Sarasota.

Identify the Rodent at Your Sarasota Home or Business

The first step in rodent control is to identify the type of rodent you are dealing with. Each species of rodent has different behaviors and are attracted to different types of environments.  It’s important to accurately identify the pest rodent before taking any action. Rats, mice, and squirrels will each require different procedures to control them.  The most common way is through feces identification.

Perform a Rodent Exclusion to Control the Rodents At Your Sarasota Property 

Once we have identified the type of rodent you are dealing with, the next step in controlling the rodent is to seal up any entry points.  This process is called “rodent exclusion.” A rodent exclusion is the most effective and important form of rodent control in Sarasota.  Rodents can squeeze through small gaps and openings, so it’s important to have Rodent Solutions inspect your property for any cracks or holes in the soffit, roof, walls, foundation, and doorways.  At Rodent Solutions, we use only aesthetic methods with materials tested successfully to control rodent entry.  Once each area has been rodent proofed (excluded), we only have the rodents still remaining inside to deal with.  

Trap & Remove any Remaining Rodents Inside the Sarasota Structure

Next, we trap any rodents remaining inside using a custom bait with attractants made specifically for the target rodent species.  With the outside exit/entry points sealed, the rodents inside your building can no longer get outside to a food source.  The rodents must come to our traps for food.  Our rodent trapping program progresses quickly at this point as their desire to eat overpowers their neophobic (fear of new things) tendencies. If squirrels are the target rodent, an excluder trap with a one-way door is the best method.  

Rodent Bait Stations or Rat Birth Control Stations Reduce Exterior Populations   

After the rodents have been controlled from gaining entry to your home or business, you will still have a large population of rodents (rats or mice) trapped outside.  At this point, they will look for a new place to live.  Common new nesting areas may include your car, trash cans, pool heater, or shed.  One effective way to control rodents outside is with rodent bait stations.  Rodent control bait stations are an effective way to help control the rodent population around your home or business now that the building is rodent-proofed.  If rats are the target rodent, we also have the option to use rat birth control.  We have extensive experience reducing and controlling rapidly reproducing rat populations with rat fertility control. 

Protecting Your Sarasota Home or Business From Rodents

Proper rodent control in Sarasota requires a specialized pest control company like Rodent Solutions.  Our rodent control professionals have the construction knowledge needed to rodent-proof your home or business, as well as the pest control experience to place rodent traps with effective bait to get you rodent-free quickly.  If you live in Sarasota, Florida, partnering with a rodent control company like Rodent Solutions, which specializes in rodents is an important aspect of home and business ownership.   By sealing up entry points and using traps or bait stations, we can effectively prevent and control rodent infestations at your Sarasota location.
