Victor Pest Control – Ultrasonic & Electronic Rodent Control and Mouse Traps

This post brought to you by Victor Pest. All opinions are 100% mine.

victor pest logoA few months back,  I had an unwanted house guest. No, I’m not talking about my mother-in-law, I’m talking about a rodent in my home.

After seeing droppings several times, witnessing our plants and food get mysteriously munched on during the night, and going on several critter hunts with my wife to no avail, I called a professional. Almost $400 later, the problem was solved.

However, if I had known about do-it-yourself pest removal products, such as the ones from Victor Pest, I could have saved a bundle.

If you find yourself with unwanted visitors, here are some of Victor’s best do-it-yourself tips, products, and packages that can save you time and money.

Rodent Control

VictorPest is the leading manufacturer of all rodent control products – and a trusted purveyor for over 100 years. In addition to displaying their complete line of products through their website, they offer a tutorial to help you identify your particular problem. Trust me, as someone who has been through the ordeal of identifying and eliminating a pest control issue, this tutorial can save you a lot of time, money, and stress.

Since you’re probably not a rodent expert, you’ll be able to learn about specific identifiers to help pinpoint your issue. Although the topic may be less than savory, Victor can help you better understand your rodent problem by analyzing the age of the droppings you may have in your household, and determining the size of the infestation. Not fun, but it’s necessary if you’re going to clean up the situation without paying for the services of a professional (and overpriced) pest control company.

Victor also offers a Rodent Library, which can assist you in learning more about the rodents that may be infesting your home, building, yard or field, and how to control them in the safest and most efficient way possible.

Additionally, if your rodent problem is more of an exterior issue, Victor can offer expert advice on how to control the moles and gophers. The complete line of Victor products in this area can help protect your yard, garden and shrubs from damage.

Tips & Strategies

In addition to pest control products, Victor has a “Tips & Strategies” section on their website that should prove helpful for anyone trying to solve their pest control issues. As I mentioned earlier, Victor offers an easy-to-follow guide on how to actually identify the rodent problem you may be experiencing. This is the main key to solving your rodent problem.

The site also offers sanitation and exclusion strategies which will help you combat the infestation and prevent future ones. Finally, their FAQ section provides answers to just about any question you may have on the subject of rodent control.
