Between 1,000 and 2,000 species of rodents exist on every continent around the world except Antarctica. All types of rodents share the characteristic feature of large, ever-growing front teeth. Most are small mammals that feed primarily on plants, though some rodents will eat practically anything.

In places where humans live, rodents are often considered pests because they contaminate food, damage houses, and spread diseases.

The most common rodents we find to be a nuisance are mice, rats, and squirrels.

How to Get Rid of Rodents

Critter Control specializes in rodent removal and control. Rodent removal begins with a thorough inspection to determine how severe the problem is. The more established rodents are, the more involved the removal process will be. After inspecting, our wildlife specialist will build a custom solution to trap, remove, and seal all entry points.

Home Inspection for Rodents

During a rodent inspection, our inspector will thoroughly inspect your attic as well as provide a full exterior home inspection. The most common signs of rodent activity are chewing, droppings, rub marks, nesting material, and small entry points.

Rodent Trapping & Removing 

Based on the inspection, our wildlife specialist creates a strategic trapping plan to remove the rodents found in your home. Types of traps, placement of traps, and bait used in traps determines the effectiveness of rodent trapping.

Our wildlife specialist will ensure to use the most efficient and safe removal process for your home. Though the standard trapping/removal duration is normally between 5 to 14 days, the trapping process may be longer if the rodents are well established.

Rodent Control: Exclusion & Habitat Modification 

Rodent exclusion is the best way to prevent rodents from entering your home, but many homeowners do not protect their home until they have experienced a nuisance animal. After rodent removal, it is essential to repair any entry points on your home. Rodents leave pheromone trails, and other rodents quickly utilize those scent trails.

Habitat Modification to Prevent Rodents

Remove trees or branches close to your roof and keep your property clear of debris can help to keep your property rodent free. Rodents love clutter and will use debris for nesting material.

Keep your garage door closed as much as possible, especially at dark. Garages are often used as storage spaces, and rodents will take advantage of any food they can get to or any items that can be used for nesting.
