It’s important to proactively monitor for rodents. Thorn used bar codes and the latest technology to track rodent activity. We also provide you with clear documentation, so you know exactly what is going on. Thorn reacts quickly to stop new infestations.
A detailed inspection is critical for successful control of rodents. Rodents are attracted to shadows, warmth, smells, and tight spaces that offer protection from predators. We need to identify these conditions that attract rodent activity. The better the inspection, the better the results.
Exclusion is one of the best control strategies for rodents. Identifying entry points and sealing them up to stop mice and rats from getting inside. Thorn professionals have tools and techniques to find out if a gap is large enough for a rodent to crawl through. A rat can fit through a 1/2″ gap and a mouse can fit through a 1/4" gap.
Rodent control isn’t just setting out a few traps and hoping you will catch them; “hope” is not a great strategy. Every day each mouse is depositing about 75 droppings and thousands of micro droplets of urine which will attract other mice. By assessing the situation and understand biology we can place traps I the right spots for quick control.
