Mice & Rats
Rodents are intelligent pests whose keen awareness of their surroundings and tendency to nest in tight, hard-to-reach places often makes them difficult to eliminate with over-the-counter traps and baits. Mice and rats can quickly cause costly damages to property, burrowing through walls and baseboards, chewing into wires, and contaminating foodstuffs. Importantly, rodents spread diseases and parasites and contribute to allergies and asthma through shedding. Unfortunately, mice and rats are prodigious breeders who increase their numbers year around.
The first step to combating an infestation of mice and rats is a thorough inspection. An Extermco Pest Control professional will determine what, exactly, is attracting your rodents and will locate their nests. Your professional will implement a treatment plan tailored to your situation and discuss ways in which you can reduce or eliminate common causes of mice and rat infestations. Whether it’s eliminating mice from your kitchen or getting rid of rats from an attic or storage area, Extermco can get it done.
