At B&T Pest Control, we believe in solving your pest problems; not just maintaining them. One of the most important aspects of this is exclusion. Pest exclusion is a preventative tactic that involves sealing up areas of your building where pests are likely to enter – essentially, denying pests access to your home in the first place. It’s much easier to keep pests out, than to get them out after an infestation takes hold.
Exclusion is of particular importance as part of an overall corrective strategy, but also to prevent the reintroduction of nuisance wildlife, mice or rats. Rodents and wildlife can be significantly reduced or eliminated from a structure initially, but if openings around structures continue to exist, it will simply be a matter of time before a new infestation occurs.
The key to pest exclusion is sealing and securing all possible points of entry into the building. This includes cracks in the foundation, improperly sealed vents, drain pipes, and other points of entry that are not properly sealed off. Of course, some parts of the building must remain ventilated and open to some extent; the point is to make sure that there are no unnecessary open entry points.
Besides being cost effective – because fewer chemicals are used and more efficient methods are employed – pest exclusion is safer for both humans and the environment. Pest exclusion is a great example of an affordable and highly efficient approach to pest management.
When threatened, rodents like mice and rats can bite, transmitting a wide variety of bacteria, viruses, and diseases through their saliva. These things can also be transmitted through their feces and urine in or around your home or food. Being a hazard to you and your family, it is critical that you keep all children and pests away from rodents, and that you never try to handle a rodent yourself. Even rodents that appear dead in a trap are capable of inflicting severe damage through a bite.
