Rodents are destructive to homes, commercial businesses, and reputations in the local community.

Effective Rodent Removal
Mice, rats, and other rodents enter homes and commercial buildings to find food, water, and a safe place to raise their babies. Unfortunately, rodents can spread disease and cause serious damage when building their nests and chewing constantly. If they chew into wires, cables, or plumbing pipes, you could have a disaster on your hands.
Since rodents are most active at night, they are often not noticed immediately. Knowing the signs of rodent activity can help you catch the issue and get rid of them before they keep breeding inside your wall voids or attic. You may have rodents if you notice droppings, hear scurrying and scratching noises in walls or ceilings, or see gnaw marks on baseboards or food boxes.

After conducting an inspection to identify the rodents that have invaded your property, your technician can create an effective control program. The first step is to locate the places where rodents are hiding and nesting. Our professional technicians have the latest equipment and most effective techniques for getting rid of rodents and keeping them out.
How Do I Keep Rodents Off My Property?
Keeping rodents off your property involves a combination of preventive measures and proactive strategies. Here are some tips to help you deal with rodents:
- Seal Entry Points: Check for gaps and seal them with caulk or steel wool.
- Remove Food Sources: Store food in airtight containers, clean up spills, and secure trash cans.
- Proper Waste Management: Dispose of garbage regularly and avoid leaving food scraps in open bins.
- Trim Vegetation: Trim bushes and trees away from your home to eliminate hiding spots.
- Remove Standing Water: Fix leaks and eliminate standing water sources.
- Use Natural Repellents: Consider using peppermint oil, vinegar, and cloves as natural repellents.
- Set Traps: Place snap or humane traps in areas with rodent activity, and check them regularly.
- Professional Pest Control: If the problem persists, seek help from a professional pest control service.
- Maintain Cleanliness: Regularly clean and declutter your property to reduce hiding spots.
Remember that a combination of these strategies is often more effective than relying on just one. Additionally, it's important to address the issue promptly to prevent a small problem from turning into a larger infestation.

Removing the rodents that have taken up residence in your property is important, but it is only half the job. Steps need to be taken to keep new rodents from moving in. This starts with exclusion techniques to deny rodents access to your home or commercial property. Rodents can get in through surprisingly small gaps and holes. These will need to be closed to keep rodents out.
Be aware of things that attract rodents, such as:
- Open garbage cans
- Outdoor eating spaces
- Compost piles
- Fruit trees and vegetable gardens
- Pet food
Your technician can alert you to steps you may want to take to make your property less attractive to rodents. Look for sources of food and water and block their access. This may include using garbage cans with tightly sealed lids, putting food in containers, picking up pet food, and cleaning up debris in the yard that may provide food or harborage for mice, rats, racoons, and other critters.
