Community-driven and long trusted pest control service, Unipest and their experienced crew is educating our community on how to gain the upperhand in the battle against the rising rodent population in Santa Clarita.
All over Southern California and Los Angeles County, pest control services have been reporting a steep jump in the rat population, seeing more and more rat-related problems every year. While there are many theories about why the population has spiked, including environmental factors, homelessness, and lack of rodenticides, no one theory has been proven true yet.
According to Cardon Ellis, over the past few years, many rodenticides and control methods have been outlawed in an effort to be environmentally friendly. In Los Angeles rodenticides were completely outlawed, though rumors of the danger to people and pets have since been debunked.
“We want to keep our homes clean and free of pests but we also have concern for our children and pets. That’s where UNIPEST steps in. With multiple traditional, eco-friendly, and organic options, UNIPEST will customize a pest control plan for your home that keeps pests out and happy family members in,” Unipest stated.
This may be in part due to rats’ ability to use their secondary reasoning to use tools and outsmart traps. In a late September interview at KHTS, owner of Unipest Cardon Ellis spoke about how rats will use sticks to trip traps and then scamper off happily with the bait.
To keep these invasive rats and their buddies out to the best of your abilities, keep a clean home, apply insect repellent to defend against mosquitos and ticks, regularly bath and brush your pets, and clean supplies well after camping and other outdoor activities such as picnics and hiking.
