How Can We Help You: Our Rodent Control Process?

Our rodent exclusion work is unique that provides the homeowners with a proven method of preventing re-infestation in their homes. Our process compromises of the following:

  • Inspection

    The professionals of our company first inspect all the suspected areas and the hiding places of the rodents such as roofs, attics, crawl spaces, basements etc.

    They also inspect the rodent droppings, damages they have caused and also the rodent nesting sites. The main aim of the inspection is the identification of the species of the rodents so that the professionals can formulate effective eradication methods for them.

    Once they have located all the points of entry and the species as well they also work for future vulnerable areas that may need to be reinforced.

  • Rodent Proofing

    This step is essential for solving the rodent pest problem for long term. In this step, all the entry points from where the rodents might have gained access are sealed. Future vulnerable areas are reinforced by means of construction gapping.

  • Trapping

    If any activity of the rodents is suspected inside the house, then the professionals place traps and baits to capture them in the attics, basements and the crawl spaces. The traps used by us are baited with food, not poison because our aim is to capture the rodents not to kill them.
