Rodents in your home can be a concern for obvious reasons. These pests eat through walls, damage your home’s foundation and often bring friends along with them. Rats and mice carry dirt and disease if not taken care of right away.
How to Know if You Have a Rodent Problem
Mice, rats and rodents are nocturnal creatures that sleep during the day and search for food at night. Rodents leave a number of tracks behind that can help you decide if they are traveling inside your home.
The majority of homeowners notice rodent infestations through a few key warning signs:
- Squeaking sounds and activity at night: To discover a rodent infestation, use your ears. When your home is quiet at night, listen for any rustling and movement from rodents. You might not spot a mouse or rat since they are great at hiding, but you might hear them squeak or drag food across the floor.
- Droppings, bite marks and grease marks: These pests do not cover their trails. Monitor your home for droppings or bite marks across pantries, kitchen cupboards and locations with food storage. Rodents are excellent travelers, so you might notice droppings along furniture, baseboards, boxes and any structures you rarely move.
- Signs of chewing: Rodents love to chew. A sign that there are rodents living in your home is the sight of chewed wood, walls, wire and pipes. Rats and mice are scavengers, so they might even leave holes in grocery product bags while looking for a snack.
If you notice any of these warning signs, turn to Pestech to resolve the infestation.
Residential Mouse and Rat Extermination
Pestech wants to keep your home free from rodent filth and structural damage. Through our Healthy Home Program, we offer routine maintenance for comprehensive pest control around your home. We keep pest populations down through regular visits on a monthly or quarterly basis.
One-time visits are only a temporary fix. Our team offers routine home visits to ensure rodents (and any friends) stay away for good. Pestech treats you like family and helps you sleep better at night knowing your home is safe and protected.
The key to solving a rodent infestation is to attend to it immediately. If you ignore the problem, mice and rats will increase in numbers and move to new locations within your home.
Professional Rodent Control Services
Depending on the severity of the infestation, Pestech offers a variety of methods for the control of rats and mice. We utilize locking bait stations in homes for the control of mouse populations. These tamper resistant stations are specifically designed for safe use in residential settings. Inside each station is a block of commercial grade rodenticide, which will control mice in as little as 5 days. Most importantly, this control method is completely safe for the whole family (pets included)!
If the infestation is too large, we offer environmentally-sensitive ways to service your home. In severe cases, we offer fumigation services for total structural elimination of rodent populations, and exclusion to seal off every possible point of entry into your home. Stopping the spread of over 35 rodent-borne diseases is possible through baiting, trapping or fumigating a rodent infestation.
