Here are some tips to follow to prevent new rodent infestations after extermination.
Eliminate all rodent attractions in your home
Extermination is by far a crucial phase in the process of deratization of your home. In other words, it alone is not enough! Whether you have carried out an extermination by yourself or by the care of a professional, rodents can always come. This state of affairs is possible when the sources of the presence of vermin in your home still exist.
Indeed, most of the time, rats and mice are embedded in your home in search of food. So you need to eliminate everything that attracts intruders to your home. Thus, your kitchen, dining room, garbage cans and all spaces that host food must be regularly cleaned and protected. A little mess in these places makes your hospital premises to rodents.
Properly decontaminate your home
Although essential and decisive, extermination is only one phase of the complete deratization of your home. It is undoubtedly necessary after this operation to carry out a complete decontamination of your home.
In reality, rodents always leave traces of their passage in the places they frequent. It can be the smells, droppings of mice, traces of their greasy coats or other elements that are specific to them and characterize them. Like a system of attraction, smells or other traces left by these critters in your home can attract new intrusions. So you need to disinfect your home in order to erase all these traces and prevent a new infestation. For decontamination, be sure to use only appropriate products that do not pose a danger to you or the environment.
