Rodent Control

Rodents can spread diseases and cause damage to your home and property. To find food, rodents will often go to trash cans, garages and vegetable gardens. Rodents can also chew through wires and wood, which increases the danger of houses burning. Rodent damage is responsible for up to 25% of American house fires. Rodents can also urinate anywhere they like, which can lead to unpleasant odors and health risks.

It doesn’t really matter if there is one rodent problem or an entire infestation. To control an infestation, it is important to know the type and size of the rodents. Ant Control Sacramento is a trusted company that uses the most recent products and treatments. We send service technicians out to your home or business.

Causes of Rat Infestation

As with all pests, rats require shelter, food, and water. Rodents will seek out readily available food sources. Trash cans and dumpsters that have lids that are open, missing, or damaged are common food sources. This allows them easy access to all types of waste. Depending on the rodent species, there are many shelter options. Large roof rats infestations are common all over California. Many pack rats live in the Valley. They are more prevalent in desert areas. Many house mice live in garages and homes. Fall is a time when rodents are more common. Rodents are attracted to warmth and will seek shelter in homes or buildings.

Treatments for rats and other rodents

To effectively treat rodent infestations, it is necessary to inspect the area and determine the species and population size. Then, we implement “Integrated Pest Management” (or IPM).

  1. Seal the rodent-infested area. You can seal the rodent-infested areas by installing door sweeps and caulking, filling pipe chases and making sure dog doors are maintained. The homeowner will then be advised on steps to eliminate nesting or food sources.
  2. Maintaining your landscaping can be done in a number of ways. These include trimming trees that touch or hang above the building, fixing trash bin lids to keep them closed, picking up fallen fruits, and repairing dumpster lids.
  3. To reduce the population, we use a variety of treatment methods, including mechanical controls.

Prevention of rodents and rats

Rodents won’t be able to enter your home if you seal or close any entry points. Even a tiny hole, such as a nickel or dime, can let rodents into a house. We can help you identify areas where rodents have entered your home. It is possible to eliminate rodent infestations from your home and keep them away. For rodents such as rats and mice, the path of least resistance will be the best. You should keep food scraps in cans with a lid and unpicked fruit from your home. This will make your home more attractive to pests. In the Valley, roof rats are quite common. Tree trimming and proper maintenance will help reduce their numbers.
