Perimeter Rodent Control

What is Perimeter Rodent Control?

Perimeter Rodent Control is an exterior rodent control method that protects your house from mice and rats by preventing them from entering your home by placing outdoor rodent control bait station boxes around the perimeter walls. Each bait station box contains a block of “delicious” rodent food which the rodents take back to their nest which helps to eliminate their population.

For the past ten years, BBP has been treating shopping centers, office buildings, and apartment complexes for rodents control and rodent removal. We provide and manage those “black boxes” that you see around properties and now we have formulated a program for our residential customers.

Perimeter Rodent Control by Backyard Bug Patrol

Each bait station box contains a block of “delicious” rodent food which the rodents take back to their nest which promotes rodent extermination.

Where are rodent control bait stations placed?

Exterior bait stations are placed strategically around the perimeter of your home. We make every effort to hide them when we can. This means placing them in a garden area tucked close to the foundation or in shrubs.

Is perimeter rodent control safe?

Yes! Our pet-friendly rodent control boxes and bait stations are made from strong plastic and are locked so that kids and pets can’t get access to them; only our technicians can open the boxes.

Is perimeter rodent control needed when I already have Tick Tunnels?

Mouse and Rat Bait StationsTick tunnels are designed to directly kill the ticks… not mice or rats. When rodents, specifically mice, bring the treated Tick Tunnel cotton balls back to their nest, it kills ticks. Now with the addition of our Perimeter Rodent Control, it takes care of the rodents! When a rodent dies, the ticks do not. Our two-pronged approach provides you with the most security from these pests. For a complete protection program, you should consider both Tick Tunnels AND Perimeter Rodent Control.

Do you just place the rodent boxes around the house and leave them there?

No. As part of our service, we will check the boxes for activity and add or changes the baits as necessary.

Do you provide a guarantee for your service?

If you find that you have any rodent activity while a member of our Program, just call us and we will come out, inspect the bait stations, and re-bait as necessary.
