Rat and Mice Control & Extermination
Have you come across chewed baseboards, furniture, or cabinet trim? What about droppings or chewed-through bags of food? Do you hear scratching noises at night? If you answered yes, you likely have rodents.
Why Choose My Pest Pros for Rodent Control?
Rats and mice are dangerous to both property and people. They can chew through walls and pipes, causing water damage. Just as bad, rodents can start fires in your home by gnawing on wires. Even worse, they contaminate food and food prep areas with their urine, feces, and saliva. With contamination comes illness. Rodents are known disease vectors, transmitting rat bite fever, dysentery, Salmonella, and hantavirus. For these reasons, it is best to seek professional help from an experienced, local pest control company. With over 10 years of experience, My Pest Pros is your resource for residential and commercial rodent control. We approach rodent control as a multi-step procedure and do the best to guarantee a rodent-free home or business. Contact us today to schedule your inspection & estimate!
About Rodent Control
Mice & Rats are some of the most commonly found mammals in the entire United States. They can flourish in many different environments, and possess a level of intelligence that’s uncommon with most pest creatures. Therefore there’s no denying the potential trouble mice can bring. Mice infestations are particularly burdensome because of their destructive nature, and the number of diseases they spread. This combined with their incredibly fast breeding habits make them a problem for any home or business owner they come in contact with.
To keep mice and other rodents out, My Pest Pros uses a series of proven techniques to alleviate the infestation from your home or business. We first identify any possible access points and conducive conditions that the rodents will use, followed by a series of baits and traps. Other pest control companies may use only one approach to remove the rodents, but this has been proven to be insufficient. With My Pest Pros we will come to your home multiple times until our traps return clear, and your home or business is removed of the rodent problem!
