WE ARE SPECIALISTS

You hear running noises inside your walls?  You see little droppings along the walls, in drawers or inside cupboards?  You probably have rodents in your building.

To get rid of these rodents, call specialists.

Our company is specialized in elimination of parasites living in buildings’ structures like rats or mice.
We also own a RBQ general contractor license, telling of your extensive knowledge of a building’s structure and its components. We know where the rodents are traveling and we know where to trap them.
We follow Health Canada and Quebec’s Ministry of Environment recommendations to the letter to make sure we apply rodenticide as safely as possible.

RATS:

the clues to the presence of rats are: their droppings, they leave them along their trails and they produce from 20-50 of them per day. They also move edible objects around ( they are much stronger than mice), they chew on things and they bite holes in the walls ( Sheetrock panels do not last long against them ). They also leave urine trails and sometimes you can hear them running or fighting inside the walls. They are much bigger than mice and they can produce really loud noises

They usually live in sewers but they sometimes find broken pipes or they enter buildings through sewer drains lacking non-return valves.

Rats can fit through a hole the size of a 25 cent coin and you have to plug all the possible entryways to a building very carefully. You can’t only plug the holes using urethane foam or silicon, rats will chew through these materials instantly and within an hour, they will come back in using the same holes. Hire specialists to prevent infestations.

They are considered harmful pests mostly because they carry mites, flea, lice and other human diseases or bacteria like salmonella, yellow fever, rage and dysentery from their roaming in the sewers to the human dwellings. They contaminate human food with direct contact, their urine and droppings.

They have from 3 to 12 litters per year of 7-8 ratlings, making them one of the most prolific animals on the planet. In ideal conditions, two rats could produce almost a million offspring in 18 months.

Inside buildings, they will look for water access first ( they die if they do not drink water within 24 hours ).

Water from plumbing or condensation is enough to sustain them. They will also look for soft materials to build their nests like insulating wool, clothing etc. ( in a warm and isolated spot )

They will look for food, but they are not too difficult. They will prefer oily food, but anything edible will suffice. From leather shoes to wax candles.

The best solution to prevent their introduction is to keep your dry goods in sealed solid plastic bins.

To get to the water and food, they will chew holes in the walls and eat through any obstacles standing between them and their target.

By chewing in the building’s structure, they do a lot of damage and they often cut through electric wires, sometimes creating short circuits and starting fires.

As they are very wary and smart animals, their eradication can take a long time and you need to begin treatment as soon as you detect their presence in your environment.

Be careful when laying rat traps and glue traps, a rat bite from a trapped animal could seriously harm you.

Be also careful not to buy common poison bait you can find in popular stores, these poisons are now ineffective. Most rodents have adapted to them and are immune. Instead of killing them you are feeding them.

For example, look in the picture , you will see a box of a common poison bait called  WARFARINE that was left under a sink. The rodents have chewed through the box and have eaten all the poison from the little plastic bags. In this house, over 25 rodents were caught and they were very healthy.

MICE

The signs of their presence are very small pointy ended droppings, about 6 mm or less they produce at a rate of 40-100 per day. You can also see a trail left by their tails or feet, gnawed upon objects and the characteristic smell of their urine she drops copiously along her trail.

Because they are propagation vectors for human communicated diseases like meningitis (70% of them would be infected) and other parasites like mites, flea and solitary worm, you can not tolerate its presence inside your walls.

The mouse lives mostly in human inhabited structures and you have to be careful not to mistake it with field mice ( meadow vole) who prefer living outside and only enter houses during fall season.

On average, a mouse can have 5 to 10 litters of 6 babies per year. Their population increases exponentially when they find shelter, food and water and it’s important to treat them as soon as you notice their presence.

To build its nest, the mouse will look for soft material like insulating wool, paper ( books and documents) or fabric (clothing) and will bring it to a hard to reach location; usually inside a wall or a floor.

Once it has found its nesting location, it will start gathering food from its surroundings about ten meters from the nest max.

Unlike the rat, the mouse is a curious animal and it will explore around until it finds what it’s looking for. They like to taste everything and they often damage objects along their trails.

She prefers grains, sweet foods, greasy products, meats, fruits, vegetables, pet food etc. She will often contaminate food with her urine and droppings.

To prevent this problem, put your rice and other dry goods in sealed plastic bins, that way you will limit their food supply.

A mouse can fit through a hole the size of a 10 cent coin, so you have to be very thorough when you plug holes to prevent access to the building.

Moreover, you can’t use urethane foam or silicon to plug these holes, mice will chew through it and they will enter the building using the same holes. The solution to get rid of them is to use poison bait.

Be careful not to buy the common poison bait you can buy in popular stores, these poisons are almost all ineffective against rodents.

They have all adapted to these molecules and you will feed them instead of killing them. For example, look at the picture of a box of WARFARINE, a common poison bait, that was left under a sink.

The rodents have chewed through it and they have eaten all the poison in the plastic bags. In this house, over 25 rodents have been eliminated and they were all healthy.
