Austin Rodent Control – Rats, mice, and other rodents often find their way into Austin homes in search of food, water, and shelter. These pests sometimes overrun the space, eating and contaminating food (including pet food), and damaging and destroying property. If there are rodents in or around your property, it could be the start of an infestation that threatens your health and well-being. If you see signs of rodents in your home, you likely need professional Austin rodent control services to eliminate the pests from the premises–the pros will know what steps to take to resolve your rodent problem. One of the most effective ways the pros suggest for getting rid of rodents is to use bait stations.
WHAT ARE RODENT BAIT STATIONS?
There are both disposable and refillable rodent bait stations available; choosing which to use depends on the severity of your infestation. Disposable bait stations effectively mitigate rodents when infestations are small, but refillable bait stations can be better for homeowners who experience larger and/or recurring rodent infestations.

WHAT IS THE BEST RODENT BAIT STATION PLACEMENT?
It is important to note that rodent bait stations should NEVER be placed where children, pets, or other people or animals can disturb them, so as to keep from coming in contact with the rodent baits. All baits are poisonous and must be avoided for health and safety. To avoid contact completely with the poisonous bait, the safest course of action is to call in a professional team of pest control experts experienced with Austin rodent control.
