The Best Rodent Control For Moline, IL Properties

The most common rodent invaders to your Moline property and business are house mice, deer mice, meadow voles, and Norway rats. These invaders will bring diseases, ticks, and fleas, potentially exposing your family, employees, and customers to danger. They will also chew through wiring, in some cases causing fires. They tear up attic insulation, and what's left gets saturated with urine and feces. They will chew through the drywall, paneling, or flooring. If they gain entry to the main living space, there is no end to the places rodents can hide. Quick-Kill Pest Eliminators has a plan to help you regain control of your property.

How And Why Rodents Invade

Rodents will come in search of water, food, shelter, and a cozy place to nest. Humans have always unknowingly provided meals and harborage for rodents just by being themselves. Rodents have a longstanding dependency on us for that very reason. Again this is nothing new; we have developed this relationship over the centuries.

Here are some of the most common entry points for rodents:

  • Sewer Lines: This is extra gross. If a rat can gain entrance by swimming through the sewer lines, he won’t hesitate to bring diseases with him.
  • Though The Garage: This is easy access for any rodent. Garage doors are usually open for extended periods of time, allowing them to enter freely.
  • Window Openings and Wall Cracks: smaller rodents can squeeze through the tiniest of holes or cracks, even under doors with faulty door sweeps.
  • Ventilation Holes: Your home should have several ventilation holes allowing air to circulate and keep your home free of moisture. Unfortunately, mice know about these holes and use them to their advantage.
  • Outdoor Holiday Decorations: Rodents may get cozy in your Nativity scene or Santa's beard, and when you pack them up, the mouse gets packed up too.
  • Chewing Through Walls: Rodents will sometimes chew their way into your home if they want in bad enough. Squirrels are notorious for this.

The trick here is never to let them in. Once the word is out that you have a cozy place with lots to eat, you are gonna have a tough time evicting them all.

Rodent Prevention Tips

Now that you have taken steps to have Quick-Kill Pest Eliminators come out to the property, you need to do your part. Here is your checklist:

  • Caulk all holes and cracks in exterior walls and foundation.
  • Cap off any unused sewer lines.
  • Keep garage doors closed when not in use.
  • Put mesh screening overall ventilation holes and cover the chimney.
  • Keep food stored in plastic containers.
  • Clean out basements, closets, garages, and attics. Remove anything that a mouse could use as nesting material. Tidy areas also make it more difficult for a mouse problem to go unnoticed.
  • Store firewood away from the house.

A female house mouse is capable of producing 50 pups per year. Half of those will be female mice that will reach sexual maturity in six weeks. That is thousands of mice in just a few months.

There are hundreds of DIY products available to homeowners—poisons in every form, many types of traps, ultrasonics devices, and repellants. You can also opt for natural or herbal remedies and rodent-repelling landscaping. These will do well enough, but they are temporary measures and will not rid you of the entire infestation.
