Pest Control and Exclusion Process for Rodents, Mice, and Rats
In eradicating a rodent control concern, we follow a four-step process to remove the problem and prevent it from reoccurring in the future.
Call: (877) 787-9531
Step 1: Rodent Inspection
Rodents, mice, and rats are very smart and can enter openings in your home as small as ¼” in diameter. Rats are incredibly destructive and can chew through soft structural materials of your home to gain an entryway. Our rodent technicians will come to your home to do a thorough inspection to locate any infestations as well as identify entry points.
The areas of your home in which our rodent inspections cover include:
- Crawl spaces
- Exterior perimeters
- Underneath decks
Once we complete your inspection, your technician will draw up a complete report revealing what discoveries were made and an itemized estimate for possible resolutions.
Step 2: Rodent Cleanup and Sanitation
After you review your plan with your technician and agree on a course of action, our team will come in and complete a thorough cleanup and sanitation process of your home. Rodent damage occurs when they build nests and forage for food inside of your home. Damages may include:
- Rodent waste
- Soiled or destroyed insulation
- Ruined food items
- Electrical shorts or wiring concerns
Our rodent clean-up and sanitation process will include removing any signs of rodent infestation be eliminating any urine, feces, debris, or other rodent-contaminated materials. Following this cleanup process, we will spray the contaminated areas with a California state-approved sanitizing and deodorizing solution.
Step 3: Rodent Exclusion
Following your home’s treatment, our technicians will locate potential entry points around your house that might have caused the infestation and seal them off to prevent future issues. Our professionally trained technicians use a variety of materials to rodent-proof your home, including:
- Metal flashing
- Galvanized steel screens
Eliminating entryway points will minimize the threat of rodents returning to your home or other potential infestations in the future.
Step 4: Rodent Trapping
Our process’s final step is to bait and trap any mice or rats in and around your home. We prefer the trapping method to poison for a few different reasons. When you have an issue with rodents in the house, poison baiting might cause them to die in attics or within your walls, creating an odor and health concern for your family.
