Rodent Control

RODENT CONTROL by Envision

Rodents are notorious public health pests. They have filthy habits. The diseases they carry, and the resulting property damage can make rodent control one of the most important jobs an exterminator does.  Rodents have been linked to spreading diseases such as Murine, Typhus, Hantavirus, Salmonellosis, Leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, Lyme disease, Bubonic plague, and other diseases, as well.

Rodent Control Treatment

Treating rodent infestations effectively requires a proper inspection to accurately determine the type of rodent and or size of the population. Also, at this time of the inspection, our Service pros will be looking for Food, Water, Shelter, and any entry points larger than ¼ of an inch entry point into your residence or commercial business. After our service pro has completed a proper inspection of the property, we will then determine the proper treatment.

Treatments can range from installing door sweeps and/or installing new weather stripping, caulking, or sealing pipe chases, making sure dog doors are properly maintained, and other similar methods. We then recommend steps the homeowner can take to eliminate food sources and nesting areas. Some examples include making sure landscaping is properly maintained including keeping trees trimmed back that touch or hang over the home or building, repairing trash bins and dumpster lids and keeping them closed, picking fruit, and picking up fallen fruit. We then use a variety of treatment methods to reduce the current population including the use of mechanical controls.
