Our 4-step rodent removal & control process is guaranteed to rid and safeguard your home against rodents.
No one likes to talk about them. Our goal is to make sure you don’t have to. Rodents can be a threat to humans, pets and your valued property, and the rat population is on the rise in Florida. Not only do rats and mice carry communicable diseases, but they can also eat through most materials in your structure, including insulation, trim, dry wall, wood and electrical wiring. Exposed wiring caused by rodents is a leading cause of house fires in the U.S. Rodents are a fact of life and can be a challenge to remove once they enter a home. If rodents do decide to take up residence, we will strategically remove them.
The goal, however, is to make sure that never happens. Our rodent prevention program utilizes pet and child-proof bait stations that are strategically placed around the property, out of site where rodents travel, and inspected regularly by experienced technicians. It’s important that homeowners keep bushes and trees trimmed away from the home, keep garage doors shut, and inspect the exterior of the home for potential points of entry. Working together, we can make sure the “R” word never becomes a conversation starter!
Signs of rodent infestation
We quite frequently receive calls from customers who are hearing noises in their attic at night. This is usually a sign that rats have accessed their attic space. While most people like to think it may be only mice, unfortunately mice do not occur frequently in South Florida. The rat population is on the rise in our area and we are responding to higher numbers of calls about these unwanted intruders.
Typical signs of rodent activity include:
- Scampering noises
- Urine odor
- Gnawed holes
- Rub & gnaw marks
- Rodent runways
- Rodent nests
- Unusual pet behavior
- Visual sightings
Our Guaranteed 4-Step Process
for rodent elimination
Our experienced team will inspect your property to determine the population size and rodent species. We will locate entry points, pinpoint nests and determine what factors are attracting them.
- Preventing Entry
After identifying entry points, our team will block off holes, tunnels and weak spots to eliminate the ability for rodents to inhabit your structure. If structural modifications are needed to prohibit entry, we will refer you to a professional who is experienced in this area. Rodent exclusion is generally not a do-it-yourself or handy man job.
We will reduce and eliminate the population by utilizing rodenticides placed in tamper-proof bait stations and/or traps that are not a threat to your children or pets.
We will strategically place and monitor exterior tamper-proof bait stations around the property to ensure against future infestation.
