Mice and Rat Exterminators, Control & Protection

Your property needs a defensive barrier against these pests and this is where experts are needed. With their nocturnal habits, rats will often roam around at night in order to avoid human encounters – you may hear them scratching around and moving around but they know how to avoid contact with predators.

While hiding away from you, rats can be making damages to your floors, dry wall, wiring and more. They love chewing all kinds of electric cables and this can pause a fire risk to your property.

Rodents can be smart when it comes to not only staying close to food sources, but also having the ability to take this food to their young. They will also find clothing items, paper and other materials around your property and will use it to create a rat’s nest.

Roof rats

Roof tats love a more tropical climate. You will find these rats living near irrigation canals, citrus trees and mature forestry. You can identify them through their long tails (often longer than their heads) and their long, black fur.

Talking about making the best of any situation, roof rats can easily do that around your home and facilities. They can live indoors, or outdoors, and are able to climb trees, vines and wires to retrieve food and find shelter.

They can create a nest using various wiring and fabric and can easily contaminate your food by putting their droppings inside or stepping inside your food.

Because roof rats, like most rodents, are masters at playing hide and seek, you may hear these creatures first before you see them.

Norway rats

Being both nocturnal creatures and good jumpers, the Norway rat knows how to move at night and run away from predators. If you want to identify this rat, it is characterized by a brownish grey color along with a shorter tail. It’s not a small creature! This rat can grow up to 10 inches long with 8 inches being minimum.

House mice

With a grey coloring and smaller head and feet, the house mouse is the ultimate uninvited houseguest that loves free food and shelter.

You will find their droppings around your house and they love moving around at night when least likely to be found. This mouse will often eat very little and is very nocturnal and comfortable hiding away in warm, insulated, areas. Their feet are dangerous and touching their feces can lead to contamination and diseases like salmonella. Take care of your family, especially small children, from coming nearby these pests.

Rodent Control involves 3 steps:

  1. Eradication – The use of baits, traps, glue boards, tracking powders and other control procedures.
  2. Exclusion – Once a structure has been infested with rodents it will continue to be infested unless they are prevented from getting into the structure. Rodents leave odors that other rodents can smell and become attractive to new infestations.
  3. Sanitation – Once the structure has been cleared of rodents and sealed it is necessary to control food sources and unsanitary conditions as they are again attractive to new infestations.
