Protecting your home and business against pests is of utmost importance to us, and that’s the reason we do what we do with such care and seriousness. However, here at One Man and a Ladybug we also understand that harsh chemicals aren’t a safe way to take care of pest invasions of the furry variety. In a chemically overloaded world, it’s in everyone’s best interest to learn and apply more sustainable practices. Here’s why we choose environmentally responsible rodent control to help you with your pest issues.
Removing rodents from your home doesn’t have to include noxious chemicals that could potentially jeopardize the health of your family, your pets or your clients in your place of business. Most rodenticides that you can purchase in stores are chock full of terrible chemical properties that cause horrific and painful deaths for the fuzzy creatures that consume them. When a mouse or other rodent ingests these rodenticides, it can take up ten days from the first consumption for them to die of internal bleeding. They’ll often keep feeding on the poison in this time frame which causes them to substantially weaken and makes them easier prey. Your pets are at risk of dying themselves if they’re unfortunate enough to catch a poisoned mouse, let alone the numerous animals that hunt rodents just beyond your front door. Regular use of these types of poisons will cause the rodents to build up a tolerance to the toxins. This is even more of a problem for predators, as they haven’t built up any kind of defence against the chemicals and are much more likely to become ill and face a painful death if they eat poisoned rodent. The use of these chemicals does substantial damage to the environment every year if not disposed of correctly, so please remember not to dump them down the drain!
We care about the health of the environment, and we care about the health of you and your loved ones. That’s why we at One Man and a Ladybug believe in environmentally responsible rodent control. With the use of kill traps and other environmentally sustainable options that work immediately, we want to make the process of riding your home or place of business of pests to be as painless and safe as possible. If you’d like to learn more about your options, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us! We’re here to help you make this year rodent-free.
