Rodent Facts:

The fact about rats is that they are everywhere and not easy to control unless you are a professional. Specifications for rats can vary. The length of an average rat is from 6-18 inches
that’s including their tail. Roof rats tend to be charcoal grey in color as compared to your sewer rat which is a brownish tan. Their diet consist of eating almost everything. They consume 1/2 to 2 oz of liquid a day. These are nocturnal creatures and eat and drink under the cover of darkness. Rats are the cause of much damage and carriers of parasites and diseases.

Rodent Exclusion:

Our rodent exclusion plan is ideal for all types of residential and commercial dwellings. It consist of:

Inspecting and identifying areas of rodent infestation.
Identifying conditions around the home that are conducive to rodent activity and make recommendations for improvements.
Installing traps and/or baits stations as needed.

We will start with a thorough inspection of your property to identify if a rodent problem already exists. During this time, we’ll also identify any areas that may attract rodents to your home and locate any points of entry.
