Almost half (40%) of the world's mammalian population is comprised of rodents. There are over 2,000 species in the ‘Rodentia' order, the most common of which are squirrels, mice, and rats. With these kinds of numbers, it's no wonder that many homes and businesses often unknowingly harbor these furry, four-legged creatures.
Many rodents, while seemingly harmless, can cause structural damage and can carry fleas and mosquitoes, as well as a number of airborne bacterial diseases. In western North Carolina, some of the most notorious rodent pests include the Flying squirrel, Norway Rats, Roof Rats, and Deer Mice. Go-Forth Services controls these and other types of rodents through an Integrated Pest Management approach - using the least toxic method first in order to remove the pest from the premises.
Rodents are characterized by their continuously growing incisor teeth that must be maintained by gnawing. To maintain teeth size and sharpness, rodents may damage attics, house siding, buildings, electrical wires, and even concrete.
Go-Forth Services utilizes a combination of baits and traps for rodent control. We locate and place the treatments at entry points, areas of frequent activity, and nests. Traps are usually implemented for mice and squirrel control, and baits are more often used in controlling rat infestations. Integrated Pest Management solutions are available for those wishing to incorporate natural or low-toxicity pest control methods into their home or business pest prevention plan.
