Discovering unwanted guests in your home can be unsettling, especially when those guests come in the form of rodents. But how do you know if you have a rodent infestation? Let’s explore some signs and effective solutions without the hassle.

Mysterious Noises

Often the first indicator is mysterious noises emanating from the crawlspace, attic, or even within the walls. A subtle scratching or scampering could be the telltale sign of a rodent presence.

Unpleasant Odors

As the infestation progresses, you might notice a peculiar smell. This odor is usually a result of accumulated urine or droppings. Thankfully, this unpleasant aroma only becomes noticeable after the problem has lingered for a while.

Initial Inspection:

Dealing with a potential rodent issue is a thorough inspection by one of our trained field technicians. They’ll determine entry points and assess the extent of the problem, ensuring a comprehensive solution.

Identifying Entry Points

Finding where these elusive rodents are getting in requires a keen eye. It takes practiced expertise to locate openings, often as small as a mouse passing through a hole the size of your little fingernail. Our experts pay close attention to areas like chimney junctions, dormer overhangs, and other unexpected entry points.

Effective Trapping Techniques

When it comes to getting rid of rodents, our primary method is trapping. Unlike baiting, trapping allows us to control the location of the rodent’s demise. This approach minimizes the risk of dealing with unpleasant odors caused by rodents dying in inaccessible places.

Strategic Exclusion

To prevent future infestations, we employ a method known as exclusion. This involves sealing up all access points that rodents might exploit, ensuring a long-term solution to your pest problem.


Dealing with rodents doesn’t have to be a complicated or drawn-out process. By recognizing the signs early and employing effective trapping and exclusion techniques, you can reclaim your home from these unwelcome visitors. 

Trust our experienced team to handle the situation with precision, making your rodent problem a thing of the past.
