Rodent populations grow very quickly so time is of the essence. It is best to target them when populations are small before it becomes a full-blown infestation. A successful and effective rodent control strategy typically involves sanitation measures, rodent proofing (exclusion), and population reduction.
Mice can live up to 1 – 2 years. Female mice are ready to breed at only 35 days old. Once a female mouse gets pregnant, it only takes between 19 to 21 days for her to give birth. Mice give birth to litters of babies that may have about five or six pups. In some cases, there may be as many as 12 baby mice in one litter. After a female mouse gives birth, she can quickly mate again and get pregnant with the next litter. This cycle can continue throughout the year, with some female mice giving birth to up to 10 litters a year. Each time she gives birth and her young reach sexual maturity, the number of potential litters increases and can create a massive infestation inside of a home.
The life expectancy of wild rats is around 2 to a maximum of 3 years with female rats usually outliving male rats. Rats are generally weaned around 21 – 28 days after their birth. Rats reach their sexual maturity at relatively the same age. Male rats reach it in 6 – 10 weeks while females are ready to mate and reproduce in 8 – 12 weeks. The gestation period of rats can last 20 – 22 days. Having in mind that the gestation period is relatively short, a female rat can produce 5 – 6 litters per year, each commonly consisting of about 5 – 10 baby rats.
RODENT-PROOFING YOUR HOME
Pt Pest Control will inspect your home to find any rodent entry points – such as any holes, crevices, or gaps that are larger than 1/4 inch through which rodents could use to enter your home – and seal them. By removing the places rodents have to find shelter and rest, hide, or build nests and rear young, they cannot survive in large numbers. Wood piles and other rodent shelter sites such overgrown weedy areas should also be eliminated.

The most effective rodent control begins with prevention. Trash should be disposed of properly, and sanitary conditions should be impeccably maintained. Rodents can survive in small areas with limited amounts of food and shelter. So no matter how clean, all places where food is stored should be made rodent-proof as a preventative measure by keeping food tightly sealed in metal or glass containers. Both human and pet food is an incentive for rodents. Cardboard boxes are attractive to rodents, as they chew them up for use in their nests. Our Pro Trap professional will provide you with detailed recommendations to remove objects which attract rodents.
The technician will also provide a thorough pest control treatment to eradicate vectors commonly living with rodents such as fleas, mites, roaches, and other feasting insects.
