Delray Beach Rodent Removal

Rodents and the Dangers they Pose

No one welcomes rodents in their living and working spaces. Mice, rats, and squirrels spread diseases through their urine, droppings and even bites and scratches. They carry viruses, bacteria, and parasites, damage your home and vegetation and create safety hazards. They spend time in your pantry, kitchen and dining areas where you store your family's food, presenting numerous health and sanitation hazards. Many people also suffer from allergies due to their dander and droppings. Eliminate these problems with the services of an established and reputable rodent removal specialist, like Critter Control® of West Palm Beach.

Rodent Control & Wildlife Removal Professionals

Our specialists are familiar with area wildlife, their habits and how to locate, trap and remove them. While rodents share many similar traits, their behavior differs, and intimate knowledge of each species is instrumental in applying the most effective removal measures.


Our specialists concentrate on control measures that address the entire rodent population on your property. This differs from the method most property owners use when they try to deal with a rodent infestation on their own, trying to trap or kill each rodent individually. Instead, we use integrated lethal and non-lethal approaches tailored to the individual property owner's rodent situation.

Preventative Measures

Once our technicians establish that you have a rodent problem, we take steps to ensure that the problem doesn't get any worse and to prevent future infestations. Our specialists perform a complete inspection of your property, paying particular attention to areas that are commonly vulnerable. This includes some of the following:
  • Vent covers
  • Chimney pipes
  • Roofing
  • Decks
  • Piping
  • Stone and brick foundations
We take measures to seal or close off any access areas, cracks, gaps, holes, and other openings. It's important to be very thorough, as rodents can enter your home through very tiny holes, as small as 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Our technicians are skilled at locating and identifying these vulnerabilities.

Delray Beach Squirrel Removal

Squirrel infestations typically begin in your yard and could eventually extend into your home. A squirrel family's favorite room is the attic, where they use insulation for nesting material and chew on wiring and wood to keep their teeth short and sharp. These cute but always unwanted house guests gain entrance into your home by finding small holes and cracks leading from the outside of your home to the inside.


Like other rodents, squirrels are wily creatures that can squeeze their furry bodies through openings three times smaller than their bodies. If you see squirrels racing up and down trees in your yard and have never checked your home's exterior for inconspicuous cracks, chances are you may have squirrels in the attic.

How is Squirrel Removal Performed?

The technicians here at Critter Control® of West Palm Beach remove squirrels from buildings using humane trapping methods that safely capture squirrels. After trapping squirrels, we take them to a wooded area where we release them into the wild.


Removing squirrels from your property may take more than a few days, especially if you don't take action and contact Critter Control® as soon as you find squirrels nesting in your attic or overpopulating your property. They breed quickly and are hardy rodents. As non-stop chewers and voracious consumers of anything edible, two or three families of squirrels can wreak total havoc on your home's interior, exterior, and yard.


Once we have eliminated your squirrel infestation, we will put effective preventive measures in place so that your property is protected from future squirrel invasions. Placing mesh screen over vents and chimneys, sealing exterior openings into your home and trimming tree branches overhanging roofs are just a few things we can do to keep squirrels from re-infesting homes and commercial buildings.

Critter Control® of West Palm Beach strongly advises against trying to trap squirrels by yourself. Like other rodents, squirrels carry diseases, parasites and may attack and bite you if cornered.

Delray Beach Rat Removal

Do you hear scratching or scuttling noises at night and find dark brown tapered droppings in or around your Delray Beach home? You may have a rat infestation problem. Other signs to check for include dirty and greasy smudges along your walls and baseboards, holes, shredded insulation and other materials, and even tail marks and footprints. Common areas to search for signs of rats are in your garage, shed or compost bin. You may also find holes in your garden and signs of gnawing on your deck.


If you actually spot a rat - dead or alive - your problem has likely advanced to a full-blown infestation. These animals are typically very secretive and prefer to stay hidden from human eyes. Only when space becomes an issue, usually due to too many rats in one area, do they venture out in the open. If you see this or any other signs of the presence of rats, it's time to call in the experts.

Rat Control and Removal Professionals

If you suspect a rat infestation, you may be tempted to take care of the problem yourself with traps. But this is not the best way to deal with the infestation and will likely be ineffective. Most rats are cautious around unfamiliar objects and will avoid traps. Meanwhile, more time is passing, their population is growing, and your problem is getting worse.


Perhaps you've considered poison. It will kill them, but then you have a brand-new unpleasant issue - dead rats decaying throughout your property, smelling and attracting insects and other pests. Additionally, poison is bad for other wildlife and the environment, in general. The most effective way to deal with a rat infestation is through rat population control. This is what our professional technicians excel at.


We use non-lethal tools to identify and remove the rats, based on proven and effective methods of rodent control. If the problem is extreme, we may use rodenticides combined with snap traps and glue boards to get rid of the rats quickly and eliminate the chance for them to continue procreating. We also use exclusion methods to effect long-term solutions. By locating and sealing access points in your home, we can prevent future infestations. Our technicians have the proper training to skillfully use all these methods as needed.

Delray Beach Mice Removal

If you see little droppings around your food stores, smell a musty odor or hear rustling and scratching when there should be no noise, it could be mice. These nasty, little rodents are the unwelcome houseguests that won't go away and keep bringing in more relatives - until you call in a professional.

Mouse Hazards

From the destruction of your wiring and insulation and the waste of your food stuffs to the many potential health hazards and the transmission of disease, a mouse infestation presents many hazards. Mice gnaw on flooring, siding, wood, and insulation, damaging your home and creating safety hazards. They can cause electrical issues, fire hazards and trip and fall dangers. Parasites, viruses, bacteria and a myriad of diseases accompany mice populations, and an infestation exposes you, your family members and your pets to these dangers. At the first sign of a mouse problem, the smart thing to do is call in the experts.

Critter Control Removes Mice from Your Property Effectively

Mice procreate quickly, so time is of the essence. You can set traps and try to rid your home of these rodents on your own, but it's a difficult task and they can be sneaky, elusive and resilient around traps. Don't be lured by the perceived ease of using poison either. Dead mice in your walls, under your flooring and throughout your property is nearly as unwelcome as live ones.


Our knowledgeable technicians are trained in the most effective methods of mouse control, removal and prevention. We understand the importance of eliminating the entire mouse population quickly and efficiently. And while it's especially difficult to mouse proof your home, due to their tiny size, we can help you take steps to minimize the chance of a re-infestation.

Critter Control Reviews

Robert B.
Full service. Excellent job of extracting raccoon, cleaning all animal waste, sanitizing, and spraying anti-parasitic substance. They closed all potential ports of entry, though the work did not match the vinyl, and it looks kind of tacky. They added blown insulation, which added a lot to the cost. They provide a one year warranty against animal intrusion, with an option to extend the warranty at the end of each one- year period. They were willing to work with me one the price. I will probably extend my warranty, and will definitely use them it the future.

I was really impressed by these guys. Got a call within a few hours of making an inquiry. Had a rep out to inspect the situation by the end of the week, and when they laid out the timeline they kept if not exceeded listed times.

Rob, Travis, and Jim were all professional, polite, and courteous and after months of hearing squirrels in my ceiling they are gone and the repair to my flashing looks excellent. Can't recommend these guys enough.

Jeff was incredibly professional and helpful. I'll use them again and would recommend them to anyone.

We heard some noise from the corner of our house. Concerned that it could be inside we called for an inspection. Jessy arrived as scheduled and conducted a complete inspection of our home. Based on a recording we made he determined we had a tree frog on our roof. I was pleased that we didn’t have any rodent in our house. And his inspection could a few spots I can tighten up around my house. I am very happy with the outcome.

We have a vacation home in Western Mass and haven’t been there much during the pandemic as we live and work in Atlanta, GA. On our most recent visit we noticed that we had some rodent intrusion as well as some un-welcomed wildlife who decided to make our vacation home their home.

We contacted Critter Control and Mr. Cahoon was quick to set up an appointment as we wouldn’t be in town very long. He came out and assessed our issues. He informed us of our options to both eradicate and control future intrusions. Keeping in mind that wildlife is wildlife! He quickly got to work eradicating the rodents and wildlife from our home and addressing the intrusion issues. We feel much better leaving our vacation home for periods at a time knowing that Mr. Cahoon and Critter Control did their job and did it right! Thanks again!

We bought an old cabin last spring , it was used for years as a summer vacation cabin, therefore maintenance wasn’t a priority. After our project to remodel started, we found evidence of mice droppings.

We immediately called Critter Control and they came and gave us a reasonable estimate to remove all remnants and insulation. They sanitized and replaced with new insulation and sealing up points of entry .

Seeing their professional work made us feel confident and secure that the problem was solved ! Everyone we worked with continued to show professional and respectful work. Highly recommend this company! We continue to use critter control monthly to be sure we are mice and bug free!
