Rats and Mice

Rats & Mice are a serious problem in urban, suburban and rural areas. Rats & Mice will infest buildings. They can also be a serious problem in newer areas where new houses have been built. Man is the only animal on the planet that wastes food, and materials. Rats and mice because of their inability to hunt for their food, they rely on man to provide their food, shelter and water.

This black light can detect the presence of a rat infestation, when used in the dark, it will make rat urine glow.

Rodents adapt well by staying close to human habitats. We grow vegetable gardens, fruit trees, and set food out for squirrels, birds and other wildlife that we want around us, but in doing so, we provide plenty of food for the rodents as well. The rodents that we have in our areas are called commensal rodents. (Meaning: we share our dinner table with them.) Without mankind they would die off from lack of food and shelter.

The rat is the most dangerous animal for humans. It is a killer of thousands of people. Rats carry more than 20 pathogens of various infections including bubonic plague (Black Death that is transmitted to humans), leptospirosis, relapsing fever, and epidemic typhus.

They gnaw on our dry goods and sometimes on our electrical wiring in our homes, which can lead to an electrical fire. Rats and mice both carry several diseases that can debilitate our health and can lead to such serious illness such as bubonic plague, Histoplasmosis, Murine Typhus, Jaundice, and many others. They cause fear, and frustration to most people. We become uneasy when they are in our presence.

Our first step to solving your rodent problem is to make an inspection of your home and its surroundings, then we make recommendations to eliminate the way they can get into the attic, walls, and house. We give you a report of our findings and you can make the changes with a contractor, or we can correct the deficiencies for you.

A call today will eliminate your rodents in less than a week.
