Effective Way To Find How Rodents Are Getting In: UV Tools

What's the best way to find out how rodents are getting into my house? There are many different tools and tricks to figure out what entry points rodents are using to infiltrate a property. One of the best kept secrets in the pest control industry is the use of UV backlights alongside UV non-toxic tracking powder.

How UV Light With UV Non-Toxic Tracking Powder Can Help Find Rodent Entry Points That Even Experienced Pest Control Technicians Cannot?

Tracking powder has been widely used across the rodent control industry for its effectiveness in finding where rodents are migrating throughout a structure. When using UV tracking powder alongside a UV light, the effectiveness is magnified. In the dark, the only thing that is highlighted is the footsteps from the rodents. UV lights will also illuminate droppings, urine, grease marks from rats, and any other bodily fluid that they could produce. This makes UV lights especially useful for sanitization efforts.

How To Properly Use UV Lights with UV Non-Toxic Tracking Powder

UV devices can be used in a variety of ways depending on what type of infestation you are dealing with. The best way to use UV tracking powder is by placing it in areas with high rodent traffic and using the UV light to find their exact migratorily patterns. Another way that UV tracking powder can be used is by sprinkling it around areas that you believe to be possible entry points. Lastly, if you're not a pest professional and do not understand how to locate entry points, you could place a wide barrier of non-toxic UV tracking powder around the inside or outside of your house as a last ditch effort, but this is not recommended.

Will This Technique Solve My Rodent Issue?

The simple answer is probably not. While this is a very useful tool for detecting rodent entry points, it is always a good idea to call a professional pest controller. Rodents are cunning and it takes a keen eye to recognize potential problems that are occurring in areas like plumbing, rooftops, and other entry points that UV tracking powder will not help with.
