Pest & Rodent Exclusion Process
Mice, rats, and rodents of all kinds are smart. If we just trap the existing ones, the rest of their families will find their way into your home to replace them. That’s why our rodent control technicians perform home exclusion service in conjunction with rat control or extermination. Exclusions include sealing eaves and overhangs, any cracks or spaces between boards, siding, doors, garages, or around windows and easements just under your roof. We also inspect attics, crawl spaces, and the inside and outside of your entire home to find and seal entry points.
Our exclusion service comes with a one year guarantee, so if they come back within that year we’ll come out to trap and seal your home again.
Mice are small mammals belonging to the order of rodents, characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, and a long naked or almost hairless tail. The best-known mouse species is the common house mouse (Mus musculus). It is also a popular pet. In some places, certain kinds of field mice are also common. This rodent is eaten by large birds such as hawks and eagles. They are known to invade homes for food and occasionally shelter.
Mice can at times be vermin, damaging and eating crops, causing structural damage and spreading diseases through their parasites and feces. In North America, breathing dust that has come in contact with mouse excrement has been linked to Hantavirus, which may lead to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS). This is why it’s so important to call a vermin control expert if you suspect an infestation.
Mice are primarily nocturnal animals and compensate for their poor eyesight with a keen sense of hearing, and rely especially on their sense of smell to locate food and avoid predators. You might find evidence of their presence, but it’s rare for people to see them with their own eyes. If you do, there are likely many more. Call a rodent exterminator right away.
Rat Treatment & Prevention
Prevention Methods: First it’s important to seal up any open areas around your home in which mice can enter. Mice have soft cartilage which means that they can fit through holes the size of a dime. To decrease the likelihood of a mouse infestation; unclutter your home including the attic and garage; mice like to hide in and under clutter.
If you keep food in your garage, it’s important to package it properly. Use appropriate storage containers such as: stainless steel, glass or thick plastic containers. Mice can chew through boxes and paper bags with very little effort.
Treatment: After taking the above precautions, it may be necessary to have professional rodent control treatment to ensure the mice or rats do not persist. Professional treatments may consist of traps, baiting, and the use of non-toxic chemicals to treat the area so the mice do not return to the treated area.
