SMART Rodent Control in Somerset County New Jersey

SMART Rodent Control in Somerset County New Jersey

Rodent control is an essential service for Somerset County, NJ. Rat problems have reached crisis points in some Somerset communities in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida and haven't seen much improvement since. Fortunately, there are advances in pest control technology that make such problems easier to handle. Anticimex SMART Rodent Protection from Viking Pest combines technological savvy with an environmentally sustainable approach for mice and rat control in Somerset County, NJ. 


There is little more disturbing than knowing that rodents are breeding in your home, business or community. Rats adapt fast, breed quickly, and eat almost anything - from plastic to clothes, even metal if their teeth can sink into it. 

Fall is now in full swing. Temperatures will continue dropping in preparation for winter when most rodents seek warmth indoors. Without a proper plan, mice and rat infestations can become virtually impossible to control.

All rats need is one place where they can breed and spread. If one house becomes infested, there can be a ripple effect on other homes in the neighborhood.


Why You Need A Long-Term Solution for A Severe Rodent Infestation

Undomesticated rats and mice can inhabit the same ecosystem as humans but should be kept far away from homes and businesses. They belong in the wild, where survival of the fittest controls their numbers, maintaining an ecological balance.

When rodents get cozy with humans, they can easily become a problem because of their:

Breeding Characteristics

Rats' ability to reproduce is the main reason rodent control is a big challenge in most urban and suburban settings.

One female rat produces anywhere from 9 to 12 pups in a single pregnancy. These pups can reach sexual maturity after only three months. Mature female rats can give birth every 3 to 5 weeks.

Rats can become pregnant as soon as one day after giving birth. Ready access to food in your home boosts this ability significantly.

Omnivorous Appetites

Rats and mice can eat virtually anything, and your home has plenty of potential food sources - from the sewers to the kitchen cabinet.  Their bodies retain plenty of nutrients from tiny food and non-food substances. You can tell from their hard droppings that they digest almost everything they ingest. For that reason, sealing your foods with plastic containers or pot lids becomes a weak deterrent at best. 

Quick Adaptation

Rat and mice control also gets tricky because of the rodents' ability to adapt to virtually any environment. They can climb quickly, squeeze through the tiniest of spaces, and easily find warm, comfortable hiding places.

They are also extremely opportunistic, changing their behaviors to function around common and predictable human activities, easily avoiding observation and capture. 

Potential to Spread Disease

Rat infestations can be hazardous to human health. They spread disease through direct contact and contamination from their droppings and urine. People can also develop allergies to their fecal matter, dander, and shed hair rats leave behind.

Rats are known to cause around 35 types of diseases. Some come through their skin, bites, and saliva. They should not inhabit the same space as humans; they belong in the wild.
