PEST CONTROL AUCKLAND RATS HOW IT WORKS?
Rat extermination in Auckland. We base our work on inspection. Once we understand how your pest rodents and your home or business goes together we form a plan. The plan will always exclude you, your family and your pets from the controls.
In 2016 we attended the NPMA meeting in the USA and completed Dr Bobby Corrigans RAT ACADEMY course.
Bobby encourages a scientific approach to pest control. Of high importance to Bobby is finding three key areas that rats trust. Their access point, their trails and finally their nests. We seek out these areas when inspecting your business or home.
Bobby told the story of a high rise in Manhattan Island New York that had a mice problem on the 15th floor only. They had gone through numerous pest control companies with the same result, they mice always came back or never went away. Bobby came in and applied his scientific approach. He inspected the basement and found what he suspected was an access point in a vent. Only a small gap and 15 stories down, he wasn't sure. He placed a non toxic radiolucent tracking bait next to vent. When a week later he inspected the mouse dirt on the 15th floor a week later, it had traces of the tracking bait!
The vent was an access point. It was critical to understanding the situation and enabled Bobby to get control of the mice on the 15th floor!
When using controls for rats we always exclude you, your family and your pets. This may be using the controls in an excluded area or in locked stations that only rats can access.

DOES DIY WORK FOR RATS?
We follow on from people that have tried DIY and it hasn't worked. One of the reasons is a lack of experience of the average punter. Without a trained eye they can not see the key areas that rats trust to place the bait. Secondly that rats are really smart and modify their approach for every house. Lastly the DIY bait is not very palatable to tempt the rats to eat it or take a lethal dose. The end result of these three factors is wasted money and dead rats in the walls.
