Rodent Removal in Your Buffalo Home

It's been quite a cold winter this year in Western New York, even reaching a new record low temperature in Buffalo on New Year's Day. With freezing weather not stopping anytime soon, there's no doubt pests are more desperate than ever to find shelter. Rodents

are a huge problem in winter, invading homes with no preference of zip code.

While you can take some preventative steps to keeping rodents out of your Buffalo home, once you find them, it's important to keep them out for the safety (and comfort) of your family. Rodents can carry harmful diseases like the hantavirus or Lyme Disease, which can be transmitted to humans through contamination of food and water sources. So, if you find rats or mice in or around your home, here's what you can do to remove them:

Do-It-Yourself Rodent Control

It is possible to handle a rat problem on your own to save money; however, it's important to note that an infestation should be taken care of by a professional. As a homeowner, you have the ability to make improvements to the structure of your home. This type of DIY pest control is helpful to keep out a variety of pests of all sizes. Take the time to seal any gaps or holes in walls, door and window frames -- anything a tiny mice could fit through!

Once your home is sealed, you will want to purchase rodent traps to place around your home. The trick is to use multiple traps. This can take time and money to handle a consistent rodent problem. To keep your children or pets safe, it's vital to monitor and remove any rodents that are baited and killed by the trap. While DIY-traps are helpful, they do not ensure complete rodent removal. If your rodent problem persists, call a professional to inspect your home.
