  • Our Approach to Control Rats and Mice:

    When it comes to these pests we have several different options that include the use of the following methods:

    Sanitation is a key factor in gaining control of rodent infestations. In poor sanitation areas where there is a constant water and food supply, control is difficult and sometimes impossible. There has to be a limit to food and water access to control rodents. Once your facility has been inspected we will make recommendations on what needs to change in order to assist in controlling the rodent infestations.  After addressing the sanitation issues one or a combination of the following techniques will be used.

    • Snap Traps - Placed in the locations where rodents are known to frequent.
    • Multiple Catch Traps - These traps catch more than one rodent at a time.
    • Rodent Exclusion - This technique is an attempt to stop rodent entry. Stopping entry may include cutting overhead branches, patching holes, and re-screening attic vents.
    • Baiting - Baiting involves placing bait in the rodents home range which has to be determined by inspecting the premises.
