WHAT TREATMENT DOES ARK PROVIDE FOR RODENT CONTROL?
ARK has a variety of ways of treating for rodents depending on the area that needs treatment, the extent of the problem and whether commercial or residential.
Most of the time we get calls from residents who hear something moving around in their roof.
When we come to do the treatment, we will firstly confirm what it is that you have on your premises, i.e. rodents, possums etc. This will be either be by sighting the animal or looking at the droppings left behind.
If rodents are confirmed, bait will be placed in the areas that the rodents appear to be visiting. Mice can be harder to control due to their erratic feeding patterns which is why our technician will ensure that the bait stations are placed in areas where droppings are most evident.
In locations where other animals or children could get to the baits, ARK will use plastic, lockable, bait stations that cannot be opened without the key and have an opening large enough only for mice/rats to enter. These stations are supplied at an extra cost but are yours to keep.
It can take up to 7 days for the rodent to die from when they ingest the bait. Rodents are very wary of new foreign objects around them so it may even take them a few days to accept the bait in the first place so please keep this in mind if you continue to see evidence of rodents within a couple of weeks after treatment.
New rodents can also move in to your property through the gaps already existing but they too will eat the bait and die within that 7 day period.
Our technician will put down enough bait to kill a lot of rodents but it may be that they need to be topped up if you have a bigger infestation.
Other methods we can use are traps (including humane) and also glue board. If either of these methods are used then the technician will revisit to check them after a week and dispose of any dead rodents found.
