Have you noticed the sound of scratching in your walls or noise coming from the attic? When trying to keep rodents like rats and mice out of your home, it is important to have a professional rodent control team like Termite and Pest Control, Inc. come out and inspect. When inspecting, we look for any entryway that these rodents could potentially be entering through. Next, we seal off any entryways that we do find. From there, we ensure that the rodents do not come back by completely cutting off their access to food, water, and shelter. We will continue to return until all of the rodents have left the building.
Rodents can do a lot of damage to your property such as chewing AC ductwork, eating electrical wires, leaving urine and fecal matter on your insulation, rendering it necessary to remove and replace it. We offer exclusion services sealing off all holes of entry in your house.

Rats can enter a home in a hole about the size of a quarter. With that being said we look around the home and find every entry point that we think a rat can enter. They might be areas around the bottom of a home if the home has a crawl space. A home might have an AC chase that allows the wires and Freon tubes to enter the attic area of a home from the outside AC unit. Electrical wires, cable wires, satellite wires sometimes enter the home through the soffit area if the hole letting them in is too big rats can make entry. We look at a loose soffit. Pipes on the top of the house used as air vents. We look at all vents around the home such as the dryer, and cooking vents. We look at where one roof dives into another roof. At these roof meeting areas we find a lot of holes. In other words, we look at all areas we think a rat can get in and stop the entry. We use cement, foam with wire molded into it, hardware cloth, screws, and stainless radiator clamps to cover and fix every area we see. We then set traps inside attic areas tethered in case a rat is caught and tries to escape into the attic. These are monitored for two weeks
One note moving forward: in homes with tiled roofs, rats have been known to eat through the sheeting to gain entry. If we find this happening in the future, we will call a roofing expert and extra charges will be applied for their work
