Rodents have average life expectancy of one year however within homes, as they get ideal conditions, they can live up to 2 years and sometimes even more. As the rodents manage to get away from the harsh conditions of environment and danger of other animals, the life expectancy of rodents increases dramatically.

Rodents like to live closer to humans and that is why they don’t need huge living space. On an average day, rodents might not travel more than 150 feet from their shelter either. As soon as their search for food and water is over, they would immediately return to their hiding places and that is why they are seen rarely and not all the times like insects.

It is important to know while setting traps for catching rats and mice. Rodents are more active at night and travel across walls and the edges.

Especially the feeding territory is something that rodents actively travel across and give more consideration to. When residents of the home are not able to catch the rodents by setting traps, it is advisable to move the place of the trap as rodents will try to look into it most probably. Obviously, there is alternate to an effective rodent control company, but still there are few measures that the residents can take to overcome the rodent problem.

The seed or food used in this process must be carefully selected as well. Generally the food based poison baits which are available to common people take longer time to kill rodents. They cause internal bleeding and that it why it takes longer for rodents to die. However, rodents can die anywhere inside or outside the home.
3. Setting up traps is a tactic for rodent control that has been adopted since a very long time. In this method, it should be ensured that no kids should come in contact with these traps and all of the residents must know the exact location where these traps are placed.
4. Glue boards may be used by homeowners to trap the rodents and it is much safer than the traps. The rodents get stuck in attempt to cross over the glue boards. However the effectiveness of glue board is much less in dusty areas.

Process of Rodent Control by Care Taker
Rodent control process is bit lengthier and time taking as compared to other pests. Although there are several ways for rodent control adopted by companies in Pakistan, Care Taker team opts for the economical yet effective rodent control services. The most common types of rodent control services are slow poisoning, trapping and gap analysis. In slow poising, tablets are placed at places where rodents visit more frequently. The result of these tablets is that rodents do not die instantly but they go outside the home and then die eventually. Rodents feel much irritation inside and in search of fresh air, they go outside and stay outside for a longer time and then die after some time.
In trapping method, specially designed traps are placed in some places after observation that where do the rodents visit more often. Traps are set at those places and rodents are unable to escape these traps. This method is effective when the number of rodents is less in the home. Care Taker uses gap analysis technique for rodent control which needs a lot of observation and frequent visits at the site. There are few precautionary measures required from the residents of the affected home during the rodent control process. The residents should be careful not to touch or let their kids touch the rodent control tablets or traps. After all the rodents are dead, the home needs to be washed thoroughly specially the kitchen and washroom areas and all other areas where tablets and traps were placed. The home can be used soon after it is washed after successful rodent control.
