Have you ever had a customer who said, “I think I have one rat”? Sure, a party-loving rodent can easily slip into a household without notice when people are rocking the pool deck and the doors are open. And of course, having even a single rat can be problematic, and you might have to use old-school techniques to coax it out of hiding and accept a particular bait.

But the sad truth is that most rodent infestations are not comprised of just one individual, and that’s when the work really happens. Rodent control normally takes a lot of physical work, but fortunately, with the advent of rodent monitoring devices, technicians don’t have to spend most of their time physically checking stations anymore. It is now possible to track rodent activity in real-time using strategically placed digital tracking devices that feed the data back to the technician.

There are several kinds of systems on the market now, so it’s a good idea to do a little research to see whether one would fit well into your rodent control program. You could potentially save time and costs using this kind of technology.
