Rodent Control

Mice and Ratsrat mouse

Mice, rats and rodents are most attracted to congested areas where there are a lot of closely situated restaurants, buildings or residences, but they also attracted to rural areas and can be seen in gardens or around homes.

Mice can slip through holes as small as a dime, and rats can fit through holes as small as a quarter. It’s not hard for a rodent to come in though small cracks and holes in the foundation of your building or home and set up a nest in the walls or in furniture.

Mice and Rats Treatment

When inspecting for mice or rats, a professional A1 technician will look for rodent burrows. These are holes in the ground where rodents nest and create an underground tunnel around dumpsters, home or buildings. Another sign for mice or rats are “rub marks,” which is the dirty and oil from their skin that rub off and leave a funky smell, on the surfaces which rodents frequent. Dusting can be a method to get rid of rodents, or rat bait stations are often used to get rid of mice and rats, especially in alleys.
