How Track and Trap Rat Control Program Works

If rats or mice are causing you trouble, Stern’s innovative Track & Trap rodent control program is the answer. The smart solution to rodent problems, Track & Trap uses a special tracking system that allows you to actually see all the places where disease-carrying, destructive rodents are getting into your home or business. One-pound, one-foot long rats can squeeze through an opening the size of a quarter. Mice can push their tiny bodies through spaces that don’t seem to be much bigger than a baby’s fingertip. Finding their entry points can be a challenge.

The Track & Trap program begins with installation of a special tracking box. Packed with tasty rodent treats, the box is dusted with a special fluorescent powder that adheres to the feet of the hungry varmints. As they come into feed, they track the powder around, leaving trails to their entry sites and back to their nests. Stern’s rodent eradication experts use a special UV light to follow these tracks. We know exactly where homes and buildings have to be sealed to prevent rodents from entering.

The program is eco-friendly and comes in two sizes for mouse or rat control. Click here for more information on Stern’s innovative Track & Trap rodent control program.

Mattress Encasements can be your Sherlock Holmes

It would be great to have an amazing bed beg early detection device, but unfortunately it doesn’t exist. A small colony of the insects can often go undetected. An expert will have a difficult time discovering bed bugs in your home if there are only four eggs hidden in a small crevice or on a piece of luggage. Well trained dogs can be useful in finding the pests. Cats often refuse to participate (that’s understandable).

Utilizing a mattress and box spring encasement that has been constructed to trap bed bugs below the top surface of the mattress can also be a way to detect the presence of bed bugs in your home. If your neighbors have a bed bug infestation problem, placing a bed bug encasement on your bed can serve as a type of detection system.  Bed bug evidence is typically located deep inside the mattress which makes finding the evidence very difficult. With a quality encasement the bed bugs gangs that want to use you as a late night snack will have to traverse the smooth exterior of the encasement. Signs of their shedded skin, fecal matter and spotting can be easily detected. If you find evidence, stop screaming (pouting is allowed) and call a professional.
