Rodents and Critters

Our rodent control program has four important steps:
  • A thorough inspection to identify the species, where they’re nesting, and what factors are attracting them.
  • Recommendations for effective sanitation so that rodents are denied both food and hiding places.
  • Eliminating all potential entry points.
  • Reducing the population by applying poison, bait, and traps.


A. If BAITS are used, they are placed just inside the crawlspace and/or attic access door.  The rats go all over and will find the baits.  If one dies inside we will remove it at no charge.   If it dies in a wall, we will not open your wall.  We can treat with a deodorizer to help mask the smell.  The body dries out in 3 weeks, but there could be a putrid smell for about a week.  This does not happen very often; most customers choose baits.

B. If TRAPS are used, they have to be checked twice a week and it is an extra charge per trip for us to do this unless you want to check them. 


  1. If noises are heard during day, it is probably squirrels.
  2. If noises are heard at night, it is rats.
  3. By law we must pick up the baits in 30 days or monitor them every 30 days.


  1. No preparation.


  1. You may hear noises up to two weeks with baits, which is normal.  If you hear noises after two weeks, you need to call us to come back out for which there is no charge.  After the guarantee expires you could still have a problem and there would be another charge if you do not screen to keep them out.


  1. We can provide you with an estimate to screen access points, if applicable.
  2. Screening can be done in 1 week if traps are used and 2 weeks if baits are used.
  3. If you are doing your own rodent control and just need a screening estimate, we can do that for an $85 inspection fee.
