Rodents

When you think about pests it's likely only a short amount of time before you think about mice, rats and other rodents. Mice and rats carry diseases and destroy property with their sharp incisors that allow them to chew through wood and other materials to gain access to your home or nearby property. Beyond that, these rodents tend to make a mess with their droppings, crawl around in filth, and carry parasites and other pests within their fur that bring health problems.

If you think that you might have a rodent infestation call a Western Exterminator rodent control expert at 800-937-8398 or contact us online.

If you've seen one...

Mice and rats are prodigious breeders, which means that you could soon end up with a large number of rodents running around your home. So, if you see one mouse or rat in your home or at your business know that there are probably more hidden away.

That's why setting traps and using other do-it-yourself methods may not be the most effective way of dealing with rodents. Western Exterminator Technicians get rid of rats and mice by killing the rodents that are in there, but we also remove the rodent nests and seal up entry points.

Signs of rodents

Often the first thing that homeowners find indicating a rodent infestation is the droppings. If you find them in pantries, cupboards, behind garbage cans and receptacles or anywhere else you might have rodents. You might also hear them scurrying in the walls or see the mouse and rat tracks in dirt around the home. 

Diseases associated with rodents

Both mice and rats carry disease risks. They include:

  • Bubonic Plague - carried by rats and passed to humans via the fleas that feed on them. The Black Plague nearly wiped out most of civilization during the Middle Ages until the source of the problem was found.

  • Hantavirus - rat urine and feces carry this bacteria and it can be fatal.

  • Rat Bite Fever - a disease that can be transmitted to humans when a rat bites someone.

  • Leptospirosis - a very serious illness that can cause bleeding in the lungs.

If you find mice, rats or other rodents around your home it's important to get a residential rodent control professional out there fast.

Rodent treatment options

Western Exterminator uses treatment options that are proven to keep rodents away. We discuss the nature of the infestation with our customers and develop a comprehensive treatment plan to address any rodent-related issues. 

So, if rodents are so adaptable and covert, how do you keep them away?

Rodent repellents, baits & traps

Rodent repellents are highly effective but potent rodent treatment option. The chemicals in rodent repellents require the utmost care when handling them. There are over-the-counter rodent repellents, but if these repellents aren’t strategically placed on your property, you may not see a reduction in rodent activity.

Western Exterminator pest control specialists are trained to use rodenticides properly. Our experts know where to place repellents according to the nature of your infestation. They also make sure to remove these materials from your home or business after rodent control treatments are completed. We make sure baits are kept out of reach of pets, humans, livestock and wildlife.

For customers who are concerned with the environmental impact of rodenticide, we understand your concern. To clear up some concerns, here are some key points about rodent repellents and rodenticides:

  • If rodents are not present on your property, then there isn’t a need for rodenticide or baits. Pest-proofing and sanitation are components of our green pest control program
  • Rodenticides are only used when there is confirmation that rodents have entered your property
  • If rodenticide poses a threat to non-targeted animals, like pets and wildlife, extra safety precautions are taken

Rodenticide bait containers or “bait stations” are commonly used in the pest control industry. Commercial grade bait stations are made with durable materials, like metal or plastic to reduce the likelihood of accidental poisoning of humans, pets, wildlife etc.

But, no matter how effective the bait station is, if it is not placed in the right location, rodents will not enter it. It's important to use a professional pest control service to ensure rodent repellents are utilized in the correct manner.
