  1. Take Immediate Action

You must act quickly to curb the spread of a rodent infestation. Not only will such a situation make you feel uncomfortable and unsafe in your own home, but one small rodent infestation can soon turn into a large-scale and long-term problem if not treated right away. Therefore, addressing the complaint as soon as possible will also help in protecting your property and ridding it of any unwanted animals.

  1. Identify the Animal Type and Location

Common types of invasive rodents include rats, mice, and squirrels. Even if you think you know what kind of animal is infesting your home, it’s important to concretely identify the culprit. Otherwise, you may run the risk of using an improperly sized trap or attempting an illegal wildlife practice.

Determining the location of the rodent is as equally important as determining the species. You’ll not only need to understand where the rodent is nesting, but also how they got inside. Identifying entry and nesting points will help you choose the correct removal method that is both safe and effective for the animal. If you are unable to identify and/or locate the rodent you saw, then enlist the help of a professional pest control provider.

  1. Keep a Detailed Record

Part of these steps is to ensure that such an infestation won’t occur again. Keeping a record of the wildlife activity in your home can help a professional rodent removal expert identify patterns and understand which areas need extra attention.
