Rodent control in Raleigh North Carolina


Seeing signs of rodents is a scary thing for homeowners. No one wants to know they are sharing their home with a mouse or a rat. Luckily, we have trained professionals ready to rid you of any rodent issues you may have. 

The first step in ridding homes of rodents is to identify what type of rodent is there. Typically, in North Carolina homes, we are looking for house mice, roof rats, or Norway rats. When our technician comes to your home, they will be looking for entry points, droppings, or other signs to help identify the rodent in order to provide the best treatment plan. 

Upon inspection, our technicians will be looking at any chewed rodent entryways in walls near the floor. Mice will gnaw a hole about the size of a dime, whereas rats will gnaw a hole about the size of a quarter. This is due in part to their sizes. Mice are small rodents and rats are larger in size. Mice can also leave scratch marks around their entry point, and rats will leave bite marks about ⅛ inches. 

Our technicians will also look for rodent droppings. The most common areas to look for droppings are cabinets, the attic, and the garage. Small, dark droppings will let us know that we are dealing with a mice issue. Larger, curved droppings will let us know that it is a rat issue. Mice droppings are typically no larger than ¼ inches, whereas rat droppings are typically ½ inches or larger. 

If the infestation is not very serious, there is a chance that our technician won’t be able to find entryways or droppings. At which point we would recommend snap traps to catch one so we can identify the rodent. Mice are smaller in size with a thin tail, and rats are larger with a thick tail. Their snouts are also differently shaped. Mice have more of a pointed snout, whereas rats have a curved snout.
