It is important that you find a company that knows what they’re doing when it comes to rodent removal; one wrong move could mean an even bigger infestation, more damage, and more costs associated with removing the rodents and putting the damage right again

Thankfully, we have a range of services that can help you, including the following:

  • trapping of mice and rats
  • complete rodent-proofing of the building and surrounding yard/garden
  • thorough and complete cleanup of contaminated materials, waste products, and dead rodents
  • full sanitation and repair/restoration of rodent-damaged areas
  • installation of property modifications and preventative measures to prevent all potential future pest problems

Putting off dealing with a rodent infestation for just a couple of days gives the population of rodents in that infestation to grow, with the individuals breeding with each other regardless of the fact they’re related.

Hazards to health

Rats and mice are associated with a wide range of diseases and medical problems, either directly or indirectly. The plague, for example, was spread around people during the Middle Ages by infected fleas that were traveling around on rats

Thankfully, the plague is a pretty rare occurrence in the western world, but there are other conditions you will need to think about when you live in the same building as rodents.

Lyme disease

is carried by ticks, and those ticks are carried by rats and mice. If rodents are in the property, ticks and other parasites are also going to be in the property.


is transferred from rodents to people or other animals by way of infected urine and feces, which go on to contaminate water sources, food, surfaces, and more. The early symptoms of hantavirus are similar to that of a common cold or the start of flu, so this is a condition frequently diagnosed late, which in turn leads to further complications.

Rat-bite fever

 is transferred by way of a bite, though there are other transmission methods. This is yet another condition that can look very much like a cold or flu in its early stages, and could eventually go on to prove fatal.

We URGE you to take immediate action if you believe you have a rodent infestation in your home or business property. We offer a fast, effective, permanent solution to rodent problems, ensuring that the property is 100% pest-free by the time we leave.

    Humane Rodent Removal Process

    Rats and mice are among the most problematic of all nuisance wildlife. Between the health risks they have the potential to cause and the property damage, these critters are a real nuisance. As most people know, rodents have the ability to expand their populations exponentially in a short time frame. This is why it is so important to remove these critters as soon as possible. Continue reading to learn more about rats and mice, as well as how you can remove them permanently.

    What problems can rats and mice cause?

    Rats and mice are very serious pests, as they pose a wide variety of health threats to you, your family, and even your pets. Among the most serious diseases rodents commonly carry are hantavirus, rat-bite fever, salmonella, and many, many more. Each of these bacterial and viral infections can potentially prove to be fatal, and even the more mild diseases can cause serious problems. The main issue with rodents is how easily these diseases can be spread. Obviously, the easiest form of spreading diseases would be a rat or mouse biting or scratching someone. In addition, coming into contact with feces, urine, or saliva can spread illness as well. Finally, rats and mice often get into food or food preparation areas, which can easily spread diseases to humans.

    As if the health problems were not enough, rats and mice also cause a lot of property damage. These critters love to get into attics in particular. Once in an attic, rodents will wreak havoc. Chewing on wires and creating potential fire hazards is a large problem. Rodents love to gnaw through all kinds of building materials, creating structural damage and creating new entry points for more nuisance wildlife to get in. Finally, your insulation will be chewed up and destroyed by rats and mice alike. This can cause a decrease in the energy efficiency of your home and could end up costing you thousands of dollars in the long run from your increased energy bill. As can be seen, due to health risks and damage risks, rats and mice should be removed as soon as possible.

    How can I prevent rats and mice?

    When trying to prevent rodents from getting into your home, it is important to remember that even rats can squeeze through a hole the size of their head. This means that any prevention work you perform must be done very well. The best way to prevent the entry of rodents is to take an inspection walk through your home and around the outside of your home. Look for any cracks, holes, or other problem areas you may see. Once you have found these problem areas, be sure to repair them and seal them up as best you can. Usually, all-weather sealant, steel wool, and aluminum sheeting can be used to keep rodents out. In addition, be sure to keep all pet food and garbage secured and away from the prying nose of rodents. These steps should ensure that rodents stay out of your home.

    How do I remove rats and mice?

    While many rat and mouse problems are often taken care of by homeowners, there are many that homeowners simply cannot win. This is due to the ability of rodents which allows them to breed and repopulate faster than they can be caught in many cases. When a homeowner falls behind the population growth of rodents, they should contact a professional wildlife removal service as soon as possible, as a serious rodent infestation is virtually impossible to get rid of on your own. Hiring a professional wildlife removal service will also keep you, your family, and your pets safe from any diseases the rodents may have.
