Problems with DIY Rodent ControlA rodent infestation can be a homeowner or business owner’s worst nightmare. Rodents cause significant damage to the infrastructure of buildings. They bring with them disease and disaster. Often, people try to eradicate their rodent problem themselves with DIY methods. There are store-bought options to use; however, unlike using professional help, there is absolutely no guarantee those methods will work.

The Flaws of Traps and Repellants

The more common DIY methods of rodent control include snap traps, live-catch traps, and rodent repellants. They may seem like a successful option; however, they may not be as effective as you think. Some common problems with DIY methods are listed below:

1. It’s only a short-run solution

Pursuing DIY rodent control is only half the battle. In the long run, your rodent problem will come back. If you are lucky enough to trap and release the rodents quickly, there is still a high chance that they will return to your home or business where they know they can find food, shelter, and water.

2. The expenses add up

The amount of money you will have to spend on rodent control supplies will add up. If you are unsure where the rodents are living, you will have to set multiple traps. The money you spend on buying supplies every time you fail to catch a rodent, could instead be spent on seeking professional help to eradicate the problem once and for all.

3. Rodents are dangerous

They carry diseases that are potentially harmful to you and your family/co-workers. They defecate and leave urine around homes and businesses which not only smells horrible, but also causes health problems. They can also be aggressive if they feel threatened, which could lead to bodily harm and injury.
