Up until recently, the pest control industry was primarily focused on rodent trapping and rodenticide baiting as the spear head in combating and controlling an ongoing rodent infestation. Ongoing being the operative word. Although these are not budget breaking means of controlling an ongoing rodent problem they are more akin to slapping a bandaid to a problem that is likely to reoccur again and again.
Let's be honest in acknowledging that rodents are crafty creatures that have shown great ability to conquer obstacles to get to the food, shelter and water that all creatures need to live. But also to reproduce if an abundance of resources is readily available. Sometimes they can even vex seasoned pros with their ability to exploit structures and establish an infestation in large numbers. This of course requires inspectors and technicians to think outside of the box.
Rodent Exclusion entails inquiring via inspection and experience of where rodents are likely to find and exploit a gap in the structure and thus gain entry. By sealing noted gaps and denying rodents and small animal access clients can feel even more confident that the rodent issue won't likely occur again.
Exclusion work is all about strategy, making the structure a fortress within means and reason. It is work that is detailed and at times dangerous. Access points will likely be on the roof as well as at ground level. Also every structure is different and requires thoughtful planning that takes into account aesthetics and architecture of a structure in regards to what exclusion material can be effect without being so unsightly.
Of course the level of protection will also be determined by the proper identification of the species of rodent. Each species has its own unique traits and areas of a structure they'll likely be found at. Level and extent of infestation will not be the same. So options become imperative in the long game.
Therefore, it is always wise to take in all the pertinent information and formulate a plan that best fits the situation, structure, budget and the desired results of clients. This will help both client and Galindo Exterminator to find success together.
