Rodents in your home or place of business can do more harm than you realize. A rodent in your home can spread diseases to you and your house pets and ruin your insulation. And in your place of business, you can be legally liable – at a high cost – for damaged stock, contaminated foods, health code violations, or other consequences. And if you own a restaurant, grocery store, or any other business that has food, the site of a rodent can tank your reputation and can increase health concerns.

Rodent Control Frequently Asked Questions
Mice and rats are both rodents. The easiest visual difference between the two is size. Rats tend to be larger than mice and have darker fur colors. Rats also have larger teeth so the gnaw marks they make on furniture tend to be larger as well. Regardless of what rodent is in your home, our team can help you get rid of them.
Mousetraps not working? That is not uncommon. Mice reproduce quickly so even if you catch one or two mice a month with bait traps, it still might not be enough. Aside from reproducing quickly, mice often learn how to avoid traps over time. A trap that worked once rarely works consistently. Instead of wasting time and money on traps, hiring pest control is the best way to handle a mouse problem.
Mice, like many rodents, go towards homes in search of shelter and food. The best ways to prevent mice, rats, and other rodents from moving in is to decrease entry points and decrease food that is readily available. Fixing your siding, roofing, and ensuring that windows and doors are properly aligned can prevent rodents from entering in the first place. Keeping food in airtight containers, vacuuming up spills & crumbs, and throwing out trash quickly can decrease the likelihood that your home would appeal to a family of rodents.
For starters, if you believe you have a small mouse/rat problem, you can always try a traditional mousetrap. There are a variety of traps including humane traps that don’t kill the pest. Another alternative some homeowners do is get a cat. Not only are cats experts in pest control, their fur actually deters mice from moving in the first place. If a mouse has to choose between a home that has one of its top predators in it, and the house next door, they are picking the latter. When traps or DIY solutions don’t work, you are best off calling a local pest control service.
