What are DIY Rodent Removal Methods and Why Don’t They Work?

DIY home projects can be fun; painting an old dresser or changing the knobs on kitchen cabinets. But, when it comes to DIY rodent removal solutions, it’s easy to run into problems.

Aside from getting rid of the one-off wasp or a few sugar ants in the kitchen with simple countertop traps, DIY pest and rodent control can be ineffective and potentially dangerous.                                       

DIY rodent removal tactics typically do not address the root of the problem. Rather, these methods tend to treat only the surface issue. By using DIY rodent removal methods, you are most likely wasting time and money by not taking care of the cause of the issue, plus many rodents carry diseases that, if not professionally handled, could be introduced into your home or property.

Also, rodents may chew through electrical wires, which is a fire hazard and may lead to electrocution when handled with DIY methods. Attempting to handle rodent removal issues on your own is not advised. Call Critter Control of San Antonio for all your professional rodent removal needs.
