We are here to assist you with the rats or mice currently trying to take over your property. We can also help and advise on keeping them out for good.
Rats and Mice Treatment
If you have a rodent infestation, you will likely notice the mess they leave behind before you actually notice the rodents. You won’t commonly find just one rat or mouse as they prefer to stay in groups, so even if you have only spotted one so far, you can be certain that others are hiding, slowly and silently destroying and contaminating your property.
If you see a rodent please don’t shrug it off. Rodents, especially rats and mice, are very disgusting creatures that carry bacteria and diseases. Please contact us as soon as you notice a rodent on your property.

Diseases Carried by Rodents
- Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
- Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
- Lassa Fever
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
- Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
- Rat-Bite Fever
- South American Arenaviruses
That list consists of the diseases they can carry according to the CDC. Even if the ones on your property aren’t currently infected or carrying anything, you still don’t want them destroying and leaving filthy waste matter everywhere. They chew on pretty much anything either to keep their teeth sharp or because they are near food.
These particular pests are great squeezers and can fit through the tiniest of holes or gaps. You will want to thoroughly inspect your home for possible holes or gaps that are allowing them in so you can have them sealed up appropriately. Our professionals can help you do this when we come to inspect the property to determine the best approach for treating the issue.
Common areas to find these holes and gaps inside your home include:
- Inside of, underneath, and/or behind cabinets, refrigerators, stoves and other appliances.
- Closets – typically the corner of the floor.
- Around doors, plumbing, washing machines, fireplaces, furnaces and hot water heaters.
- In basements, attics and crawl spaces.
- In floor drains; laundry or basement.
- Between/inside floors and walls.
- Floor vents and dryer vents.
- Inside the attic.

They are fast little creatures and can climb extremely well so every floor of your home will need to be inspected. The outside is important because there could be holes or gaps that you haven’t yet noticed and are allowing unwanted pests to enter. The worst way to fall asleep is while listening to rodents crawl around or chew all night. Please contact us if you hear thes scurrying about or chewing on your walls.
Some good places to look for holes and gaps on the outside of your home include:
- Attic and crawl space vents.
- Gables, eaves and rafters.
- Holes or openings around pipes, gas lines, electrical lines and cables.
- Around doors and windows.
- Around foundations.
- Underneath doors.
