We employ the Bait technique to Control, Eradicate, and Exterminate the infestations of these Pests. Some of the advantages of the Bait technique are:
Our exterminators will inspect the structure for points of vulnerabilities that may result in cause of future infestations or conditions that may be helping the Pest flourish. It will be up to the owner to act on the recommendations.
A Bait in Block form being
deployed in Bait Station
In about 3-5 weeks, all pests would have been eliminated having consumed the bait. Typically, the Pests would simply cease to exist. However, it is possible that some Pests may expire near human living spaces. As well, they may result in bad odors. In that case, client would have to investigate the source and remove it.
Mice are feeding on
Bait in Block form.
Bait is mostly in block form and is usually deployed inside Bait Stations. The Bait Stations are placed on the floor level along the walls and have a tunnel through them from where the Pest may enter and leave.
Mice and Rats, during their normal foraging activities, will find the bait and consume it. It is common that it may appear that the pests become more active or appear to have become greater in numbers as they may come back a few times to feed on the bait.
At QPM, we have highest success rate of complete elimination of these pests with one treatment alone. The treatment includes a thorough inspection of the property before a comprehensive application process. We are one of the few service providers who are confident to provide a warranty that these pests would be gone for good. For a no-obligation quote call us anytime.
These pests are most active at night, they are shy and very cautious. Mice are more domestic in their nature whereas Rats have tendencies for the wilderness. And Mice try to be very inconspicuous whereas Rats' presence is hard to miss. Also, Rats are much massive than the Mice.
There is no Spray, Fumigation or Fogging Application for their elimination. To eliminate these pests we employ bait method. We use most effective baits available from the leading rodenticide manufactures.
These rodenticides are highly palatable and contain powerful active ingredients, for the strongest, single-feeding bait. These are utilized for both rats and mice. Bait is usually placed behind appliances (or dropped in holes or above a ceiling) where it is inaccessible to non-target life forms. In other places QPM utilizes tamper-resistant and lockable bait stations.
These rodenticides are registered with PMRA as Commercial and are not sold to the public. Only Licensed Pesticide Operators are allowed to employ these.
Areas favoured by mice are food storage and preparation areas such as kitchens and pantries. Sub-floor areas, enclosed pipes and baths in bathrooms and loft areas are also favoured areas. Bait can be placed under or behind kitchen fittings, behind fridges, under kitchen units, behind the bottom drawer of the stove, etc.
The bait method results in gradual and almost fool-proof and guaranteed removal of these pests.

QPM will obtain as much information as possible from people on site and use this information when conducting the survey.
