Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea.
"True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus. Many members of other rodent genera and families are also referred to as rats, and share many characteristics with true rats.
Small nooks and cervices can be gnawed on and expand as an accessible entryway to your home.
Good housekeeping within buildings reduces shelter and food for house mice.
Seal all structural cracks and openings larger than 1⁄4 inch. Use wire screen or coarse steel wool that mice can’t chew through.
Ensure all doors, windows, and screens fit tightly.
Feed pets only the amount of food they will eat at a single feeding.
Keep all food storage and garbage containers sealed.
Thin or remove plants next to or climbing up buildings, since house mice are excellent climbers.
Our trained technicians will use multiple strategically placed baits and traps to rid your property of rodents in the most effective and humane way possible.
