Rodent control is very important on the interior and exterior of your home. Besides, the basic ‘ICK’
factor of living with rodents in your home – 35 diseases are spread by rats and mice worldwide.
These diseases are spread to humans directly and indirectly. Humans may contact diseases from
contact with rodent feces, urine, and saliva or simply from handling rodents and rodent bites.
Humans may also contract diseases indirectly from fleas, mites and ticks that have fed on an
Another unpleasant side effect once rodents gain entry to your home is the thousands of dollars
in damage they cause. They chew through duct work, costing many homeowners the replacement
cost of new duct work or living with higher power bills. They chew through electrical wires which
can cause house fires. They urinate and defecate in your insulation, which may smell or cause
disease, therefore will need to be replaced. Rats can also contaminate the food in your kitchen. In
addition, they may die causing unpleasant odors and fly infestations.
Find It! Fix It! Trap It!
Pest Control Solutions offers several services to help homeowners control rodents including free
inspections, fixing the rodent entry points, rodent exclusions and rodent bait boxes.
Our trained technicians find rodent entry points through thoroughly inspecting the interior and
exterior of your home for rodent entry points. Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel,
and rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a quarter!
Once the technician has found the entry points, the technician will provide the homeowner with an
estimate to fix the holes and trap the rodents. We do not use poisonous bait on the interior of your
Rodent Bait Boxes
Once the technician has found the holes, fixed the holes and trapped the rodents, the homeowner
may want to consider reducing the rodent pressure around the home. The rodents (now dead!
) left a urine trail marking where they were gaining entry to your home. Other rodents in the
neighborhood may follow the trail and gnaw their way back in. By strategically placing rodent bait
boxes around the exterior of the home we can reduce the number of rodents in the area. With less
competition for food, the rodent will find easier places for food and shelter. We have several rodent
bait box replenishing plans available; quarterly, every other month, or monthy.
