Venice Rodent Removal

Rodents are infamous throughout history for their ability to transmit disease and cause damage wherever they go. While there is little danger of the black plague happening again any time soon, rodents can still be a scary thing to deal with when they are on your property or in your home. Luckily, Critter Control® of Sarasota is one of the premier rodent removal solutions in the Venice area, and our technicians are here to help.

How to Tell If You Have Rodents

  • Droppings - Rodents are always looking for something to eat or chew on, which means they also create a lot of waste. If rodents are in your home, you will likely spot their small, black droppings. They are typically around ¼” long and usually found along the walls or in the attic, basement, or other common nesting areas.
  • Nests - Nests are another common sign of the presence of rodents. They are typically found in out-of-the-way places like the attic, basement, garage, or even inside of walls. They can be made of shredded paper, attic insulation, cardboard, or chewed up wood scraps.
  • Gnawing Marks - Keep an eye on exposed wood around your house. Because rodents love to chew, they will sink their teeth into important wood structures around your house, base boards, cabinets, and even electrical wiring in some cases. If you see bite marks on these items, a rodent problem is the likely culprit.
  • Strange Pet Behavior - in some ways, animals have much more acute senses than humans. If cats or dogs around your home have been acting strange, pointing at seemingly random areas, or seem overly interested in entrances to your attic or garage, there could be unwelcome rodent intruders.

Venice Squirrel Removal

Since 1983, Critter Control® of Sarasota has built a reputation as the premier wildlife control and squirrel removal solution in the Venice area. Over time we have created strategies for ridding residential and commercial properties of nuisance squirrels in an efficient and environmentally-friendly way. Not only do our services rid your property of squirrels, but we also take measures to ensure nuisance wildlife doesn’t return in the future, giving you the peace of mind you deserve.

Squirrel Characteristics

Though they aren’t aggressive and don’t share the same negative stigma that rats and mice have, squirrels pose their own problems for Venice residents. They’ve been known to run along power lines which can cause transformers to short out, they love gnawing on wiring, building nests inside of attics, and generally making messes that can be costly to clean up. If you’re someone who keeps a bird feeder or bird house on your property, know that squirrels see these as easy targets and will steal seed from feeders and raid bird houses whenever possible. These characteristics are good reasons to call a professional wildlife control company that can quickly and permanently rid you of nuisance squirrels.

Do You Have a Squirrel Problem?

The first step in removing squirrels is identifying when you have a problem. Ask yourself the following questions:
  • Do you hear squeaking or scratching noises coming from your ceiling or walls?
  • Are your bird feeders being depleted faster than usual?
  • Have you noticed holes in your home’s siding, gutters, soffits, or flashing?
If you’ve experienced any of the above, consider calling one of our squirrel removal specialists today.

Common Rat Traits

Rats typically won’t charge at humans or go out of their way to bite, but they pose a problem in other ways. Rats love to chew on pretty much anything they can get ahold of, including structural wood components inside of buildings, electrical systems, and even some types of roofing materials in order to keep their constantly-growing teeth trimmed to length. They will also build nests in Venice attics using insulation, ruining it in the process. These behaviors, combined with how unsanitary rats are, make for a good reason to call the specialists at Critter Control® of Sarasota.

Are Rats in Your Home?

When determining if you have rats in your home or not, ask yourself the following:
  • Is there a foul smell of urine or solid waste coming from the walls or ceiling?
  • Have you noticed signs of chewing or biting on wood surfaces or food containers?
  • Do you hear squeaking or scratching sounds coming from your walls or ceiling?

Venice Mice Removal

For residential and commercial properties alike, mice are tiny critters that can cause big problems. Regardless of how cute they may be, or the fact that some people keep them as pets, the reality is that mice can cause damage and spread bacteria if they nest in a home or office. Mice removal is important, but it is something that should be done by a professional. Mice are skilled in finding even the tiniest openings in a building foundation or wall, and can squeeze through holes as small as ¼” in diameter.

The Signs of an Infestation

You may have mice on your property if:
  • You begin hearing squeaking, scratching, or the pitter-patter of footsteps coming from your walls or ceiling
  • You begin to smell a foul, ammonia-like odor from mouse urine, or spot the small pellet-like droppings that mice leave behind
  • You notice bite marks on food containers in your kitchen
If you do have mice on your hands, it is important to handle the issue before they are able to cause extensive damage.

Getting Rid of Mice

There are plenty of DIY methods available online for getting rid of, and excluding mice from a building. However, mice can be difficult to remove and are more intelligent than they seem, therefore, professional removal is the most effective option.

We Can Help

The team at Critter Control® of Sarasota is well versed in all forms of mice removal, and we can get your home back in top shape in no time. Call us today at 800-274-8837 with questions about our mice removal services or to schedule your complimentary consultation.

Our current technician is very good.  He always calls us the day before so we know when he is coming.  He also has done a very good job keeping pocket gophers in check.

Mike did our service today. He was awesome! He addressed and resolved a couple of critter issues we were having. It's really helpful to be reminded when he was coming and texted me when he was on his way. Thank you for the great service!

We appreciate that your company was able to rid our property of the squirrel activity that we observed. We were concerned that the squirrels would dig under the foundation of our house (which had happened to a neighbor in our area).

Thank you for doing what you said you would do to eliminate this squirrel activity.

It has been very effective at reducing the number of mice, lizard, and snake sightings. During one visit Edgar removed a rattlesnake he came across. We may see a snake maybe two to three times during the spring and summer months, but it has been far less than before.

Melinda is a true professional.  She has helped us maintain a "critter-free" home.  Whenever a mole decides to visit our property, she is right on top of it.  Her recommendations about mosquito control made a big difference for my boys to be able to enjoy our backyard.

Have been using for almost 10 years after a record rat invasion. The help I had back then was like a super-helpful friend taking a few weeks to rid me of that invasion. Over the years I have had a few other representatives. They are always nice and helpful.

On recommendations from a nearby pest control company, I called Critter Control for suspicious bat droppings.

Madison came out the same day to do an inspection. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and highly professional. She examined the ‘matter’ that had been scattered on my threshold and thought it was foliage. But she then asked to go up to my attic space where the bats could be roosting. She had to walk up 3 flights of stairs with a heavy ladder. She again spent some time searching all the nooks and crannies and found nothing.

She seemed so interested in her craft, it was truly inspiring to see! She reassured me and is writing up a prevention strategy for my appraisal. She charged me NOTHING!! I am so impressed. We need more Madisons in this world!

Daniel did a great job pigeon proofing. We have a huge pigeon problem in our neighborhood and the pigeons were roosting in the gutters of my house and my two next door neighbors, who also had nests in their gutters and under their air conditioner. Pigeon poop filled our gutters, and was piled on the outside floor when I bought the house. Since Daniel's pigeon proofing, and my neighbors also pigeon proofing their gutters, fireplace chimney, air conditioners, and removal of nest, I rarely see pigeons any more. Only the lovely native sparrows, robins, vermillion fly catchers, and mourning doves visit our property now.
