Baltimore faces significant rodent pressures, from rats that may come up through sewer lines to those drawn to older structures that offer points of entry. This can affect properties of all kinds, from healthcare facilities and schools to office buildings and warehouses. The key to getting problems under control is to work with an experienced rodent control partner that combines monitoring, exclusion and remediation.
Rodent monitors can tell you a lot about the quality of service you are receiving. When working with new clients, Billie Carberry, Commercial Regional Sales Manager, often sees the signs of past problems in their previous monitoring equipment.
From Your Commercial Pest Control Specialist: “Rodent monitoring stations are supposed to be checked, cleaned and dated at regular intervals. However, this frequently gets missed. I’ll check them when we start with a new client and see that they’re neither cleaned nor dated.” – Billie Carberry, Commercial Regional Sales Manager, PA / DE / MD
Not only are there regulations governing proper upkeep of rodent monitoring stations. They also need to be updated with fresh bait so that they’re working as hard as possible to identify rodent problems quickly. Carberry notes that in older buildings that are attractive to rodents, monitoring gaps are a serious issue that can escalate infestations. If you’re unsure whether your facility is protected, a Western commercial rodent control expert can help you conduct an audit and identify if it’s time for change.
