Cold Temperatures in NYC Means Unwanted Pests Indoors


With temperatures dropping and winter well under way, rodents and pests are more commonly seen indoors in New York City residences and businesses. Magic's exterminators are experts when it comes to removing rats and mice.

Norway rats, one of the more common rodents found in NYC, are often found indoors in lower levels (crawl spaces, sewers, basements, etc.). These rats can cause significant structural damage and carry disease, so it is important to eradicate their presence immediately.

The House mouse, another frequent invader of apartments in New York, typically nests in dark, secluded areas, where nesting materials (paper, cardboard, insulation, etc.) are available. These mice are often found in closets, walls, and other small locations.

As with most exterminating services, Magic's first step when handling rodent problems is to locate and identify the problem area. Discovering how the rodents entered the NYC business or apartment is the most important step to preventing the problem from simply reoccurring.

Once located, the next step to exterminate rats is using our preferable green exterminating method with mechanical traps and lures. Some of our most popular green rodent control solutions for New York City residents include Detex blox, Terad3, glue traps (without pesticide), and mechanical traps.

Once the rodent threat has been eliminated, the final step, where necessary, is exclusion - the process of sealing pests out of homes and businesses. Magic's team of skilled carpenters will find exterior entrance points - mainly through doors and holes near ground level, and patch and repair as needed.
