Mice & Rodent Extermination
The best in Monmouth County NJ
Cinderella’s mice may have been helpful companions, but the typical rodent population is far more destructive. With the ability to travel in the walls of your home, chewing on structures and electrical wiring, rodents feed on anything and reproduce quickly, making them difficult to control once a full-blown infestation has happened. That is why it is not enough to get rid of the rodents you see, you must eradicate the ones that you don’t, their young, and their nests. Typically, a successful and effective rodent control strategy has four parts – a thorough insepction to determine the cause and extent of your rodent infestation, sanitation measures, rodent proofing the property, and population reduction or trapping.
When Pride Pest Service visits your home, we approach your rodent infestation with an eye for the quickest possible results. Our certified, licensed technicians understand that each home is unique and conduct a thorough inspection of home’s unique structure. They will identify any signs of rodent activity, potential entry points and areas where rodents are likely to live. They will also take the time to understand your individual needs. At the end of the inspection, your pest control professional will develop a customized plan to address your specific rodent problem.
Once Pride Pest Service has identified any rodent entry points – such as any holes, crevices, or gaps that are larger than 1/4 inch through which rodents could use to enter your home – they will begin to seal them off. Once rodents no longer have access to your home, they will have to find shelter and rest, hide, or build nests elsewhere. Rodent-proofing may also include moving wood piles, wedding any overgrown areas and removing landscape that is known shelter for rodents.
If your property has already been infested, there will need to be a means of population reduction to control the rodent population already inside of your building. This may include trapping. Many factors, especially placement, account for the overall success of a trapping program. Rats are naturally suspicious of anything new in their environment and will avoid a freshly placed trap. The trapping process for rats tends to take a few days or up to a few weeks to be effective. Mice, on the other hand, may be more prone to find and set off the strategically located traps. Your technician will routinely check and promptly remove the rodents as they are trapped. Since our method does not rely on inherently hazardous poisons, we can make sure rodents are disposed of properly, without unpleasant odors or endagering pets or service animals.
For any rodent extermination process to be successful, it must include sanitation and vector control.
The most effective rodent control begins with prevention. Trash should be taken out regularly, counters kept free of food and debris and cupboards periodically wiped down. Rodents can survive in small areas with limited amounts of food and shelter. Even if your home is impeccably clean, you will need to store your food in metal or glass containers to prevent rodents from using cardboard for their nests. Even pet food is irresistible for rodents. Our technicians will help you identify anything in your home that might be attractive to rodents.
Rats, mice and other rodents tend to carry something called vectors (insects). Fleas, mites, ticks or other feasting insects may hitch a ride on their skin or fur while roaches tend to be attracted by the same things rodents are (small bits of food, cardboard boxes containing pet or human food, unsanitary conditions). In addition to getting rid of the rodents in your home, your Pride Pest Service technician will help rid your home of these secondary vectors.
