Do you know that rats and mice cannot see properly, so they prefer running close to structures? If you leave a scented path unintentionally which is familiar to them, you will notice that they are running on the same path repeatedly. But removing rats and mice from your home comes with limited options for a homeowner. This is because rats seem to be smarter while mice are more curious.

Most of the people get fed up and use poison for getting rid of the rodents. But it is not at all an expert’s recommendation, as it results in emission of foul smell after their death. This is because rat prefer dying in closed and complex areas. That is why, it is a smart choice to hire a professional offering commercial pest control in Melbourne.

So how do these professionals deal with the gnawing invaders?

Snap Traps
Snap traps are laid along the path of their excrement, gnawing marks and urine stains. In this process, food sources are removed without disturbing the habitat. The trap is placed perpendicularly to the structure where they live or hide so they do not have to work hard by walking around the trap. Rats do not like to change their course and are very cautious. When trapping a rat, it is advised to set the traps in the same place where they have been planted before. But in the case of mice, you can change the place of the trap as they are curious about everything.

Glue Boards
Glue boards are deadly structures for rats and mice. They are placed on the path of their movement. Glue boards must not be placed at extreme temperatures. The best thing to do is plant the trap for two to three nights so that the critters get familiar with it and run upon to test the field. The traps must be placed alongside walls, corners or under the table and chair.

Repellent
Professionals sometimes prefer using user-friendly productsto repel mice and rats. They include powders, ropes and sprays. Powders are sprayed in the areas where they come for a regular visit like trash cans, exterior walls, garage, and basement. Ropes are used in the same manner. They can be cut into specific sizes depending upon the need. On the contrary, sprays are applied on objects which are prone to rat and mice gnaws. The sprays are used to create an unpleasant taste for those critters.

These are the basic professional solutions for removing rats and mice from a property.
