Rat is a different mouse. In fact, the pest control service should be called rodent control, not control mice, because of the rodent species.
But the fact is that when we see a rodent, mind screams soon: a mouse! So it is easier to use the generic nomenclature of rats for all rodents considered urban pests (about 50 species, most of the Muridae family).
MOST COMMON SPECIES OF RODENTS
Among the species of rodents that plague urban areas in Brazil, three stand out: the mouse ( Mus musculus ), a rat ( Rattus overgives ) and the lining rat ( Rattus rattus ).
We will separate them into two groups to get to easier identification: mouse (rat and lining mouse) and mice. See the illustration below to learn what you should observe to differentiate mice rats!
MOUSE IS GETTING SMARTER? CALL An IMUNISERVICE!
They do not fall into traps more? Poison flee you put it? Nor cats can hunt them?
If homemade methods do not solve your problem with rodents, it’s time to make a service pest control.
Out of the game, know that rats and mice easily adapt to any environment and learn from your mistakes.
Using homemade methods to combat rodents is not recommended. In addition to taking risks when handling poisons, the person can exacerbate the problem of infestation. So we have diversified strategies for the control of rodents.
COMBATING THE RODENTS
To trace the correct strategy is necessary to analyze the behavior and biology of the animal. Our employees are constantly trained by highly trained biologists, as the Marcio Alves, master of rodent control by the University of Reading (England).
The training combined with the use of products and the latest technology guarantee the success of our pest control services.
For example, in places where it is not possible to use rodenticides, our team will install PEP boxes (permanent poisoning point) strategically placed.
These boxes are closed and highly resistant. Inside baits attract rodents, entering through a small hole.
It is a safe method, widely used in environments with pets, children, or in establishments that handle food or medicine.
