Rodent Control Service

What's In Your Attic?

Rats and mice can be some of the most significant pests we have to deal with. They will continuously attempt to co-exist with us in just about every building we live, eat, and work in. Rodents have been known to carry and transmit diseases, damage, and destroy our buildings, electrical wires, and water lines through their gnawing. Most people have a greater fear of rats and mice than they do of spiders. This fear can make you, your employees, or customers extremely uncomfortable.


Hiring an exterminator is the first step in solving the problem. At Go-Pher The Kill, we perform rodent control like nobody else. In addition to trapping, baiting, and exclusion, we incorporate video into our service. You will have a live video stream to the areas of activity, so you can monitor our progress, and spy on your intruders, even at night. This service also provides our customers with confirmation that their current problem has been resolved.
 
Rats and mice can remain active indoors throughout the year so it is best to have your home monitored year-round. Go-Pher The Kill’s Regular Service Plan can help to guard your home against rodents such as rats and mice.

Treatment Options

Bait Stations

When there is evidence of rodent activity limited to the outside of your home, bait stations are a great tool to keep populations down. By reducing the number of rats and mice outside, you reduce the chances of them making their way inside. We will suggest the number of bait stations to be anchored down around your home. Once in place, we will monitor their activity on a regular basis and keep a fresh supply of bait for them to consume.

Exclusion

A great way to help prevent rats and mice from getting into your home is by locating their entry points and blocking their access. Rodents can find and squeeze through the smallest cracks. Rats can squeeze through a hole as small as a quarter, and mice can squeeze through a hole as small as a nickel. If the hole is too small, they can usually gnaw their way to a larger opening. By using the proper materials, they can be denied access to your home.

Trapping

If they have already made their way inside or if the infestation is large enough, we will use traps.Traps enable us to remove rodents from your home or business physically. Using bait to kill rodents inside can lead to dead rats or mice left to decompose in hard to reach places. Traps can also act as an indicator to determine if any rodents are still in the area being treated.
