Rodent Control


There are several rodent species that we deal with in this region. All of which, can pose a significant health risk if they make their way into your home. Not only do they carry several different diseases and illnesses, but these pests can also cause significant damage to your property as they build nests and look for food. At Effective Pest Services, we don’t only help you get rid of them, we will put measures into place to help you avoid them in the first place.

Rodent Specialists

Treating rats, voles and pocket gophers takes specialized knowledge to eliminate these pests and the extensive property damage that they cause.

Many people will attempt to treat these rodents themselves, because of success in the past in treating mice themselves. In most cases they will be unsuccessful and will eventually need to call a pest professional as the damage starts to add up. The amount of damage that they can do to landscapes and wiring in cars/homes/barns can easily run into the thousands of dollars. It is much more cost effective to call professional when voles/rats/gophers/moles are first discovered. If you are experiencing any rodent activity, please call us to get more info about pricing as the price will vary based on the amount of activity and size of the affected area needing to be treated.

Danger of Rodents

Rodents are vertebrate animals with front teeth in the upper and lower jaws that grow continuously throughout their lives. Because of this, rodents gnaw to keep their teeth size under control and can cause extensive property damage in the process. Some types of rodents such as voles and gophers also cause damage with their digging and burrowing. In addition rodents can spread dangerous bacteria and diseases including Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, Tularemia and Salmonella.

Rodent Exclusion & Control

One of the most overlooked aspects of rodent control is finding the entry points where the mice/rats are getting inside. One of the reasons people keep getting rodents inside after thinking that they had gotten rid of the little pests is rodents will urinate at these entry points which later acts as a marker to any rodents in the future that may come lurking around the home. It can be a process to find these areas but when they are discovered and sealed, combined with using rodent baiting suppression techniques the activity will cease. There are some cases where it is not possible to find and seal all the entry points. In these cases, trapping and bait suppression techniques can greatly improve the activity. Effective Pest Services offers rodent control to remove any existing rodents as well as exclusion to keep future rodents out of your property. Call us for a rodent inspection today!
