Rodents are a stressful and scary problem to deal with. Pest control alone will not deter them from entering your home. Rats, for instance, are able to transmit diseases that they carry through contact with their feces, urine, or saliva; as well as through bites from fleas, ticks, or mites that they may carry.
They are also responsible for property damage. Rats will find or create a hole somewhere on the outside of the house to gain access, quite often this leads them to the attic. Once in the home, there are many things that they can begin damaging.
- Insulation can be displaced, trampled, and absorbs rodent droppings
- Wiring can be chewed and become a fire risk
- Plumbing lines can be chewed and cause water damage
- A/C ducts can be damaged or ruined
- Food and stored products can be contaminated
- Drywall and moulding can be chewed to gain access to the interior living space
We will check your home, from roof to floor, and identify where rats or mice are gaining access, and assess the situation on the inside of your house to determine what needs to be done. Our customized rodent control programs ensure that we solve the problem by keeping rodents out of your property.
Our first step in rodent control is finding where they are accessing the home and repairing the damaged area to seal up access. Any hole or gap bigger than 1/4" will be repaired.
The house is sealed up, and now we have to handle the rats or mice that can no longer come and go as they please. We do this by trapping and removing the rodents inside your home. This part of the rodent control program is done in the attic whenever possible.
As we work through the house, we will sterilize and clean any excessive amount of droppings found. This removes a health risk from your house, making the air safer to breathe!
We provide monitoring boxes on the outside of your house as a first line of defense against rodents. As part of our rodent control program, bait is checked regularly to keep the rodents at bay.
