Rodents

With 2,277 species, rodents account for 41% of the known mammals. They are a very diverse group in both size and habitat. All species of rodents have large incisors that continuously grow, which requires them to chew and gnaw on things to control the growth.

Rodents are found on every continent except Antarctica. In North America, when it comes to homes and commercial properties, the most common types of rodents found as pests are mice and rats. However, there are other rodents that can cause damage to your property including chipmunks, moles, voles, gophers, and squirrels.

Rodents can cause tremendous damage to homes and businesses and most rodent species have health risks associated with them. This is why Ehrlich Pest Control offers rodent removal services and can help you get rid of rodents and prevent their return.

Rodent control service

Handling rodent issues is best done by a pest control professional. At Ehrlich, we are prepared to address your situation so that these pests are no longer a problem. We incorporate an integrated pest management (IPM) approach in our rodent removal services, designed to provide effective and environmentally-friendly control and management solutions. We understand that not every treatment option is a great fit for your situation. Our specialists will start with a property inspection and look everywhere to find where the rodents are hiding. We'll determine if you have mice or rats and then work with you to find the right treatment solution for your needs.

Ehrlich offers methods to control and prevent rodents such as:

Property inspection

Property inspections are essential to finding out why you have rodent activity and where it is coming from.

Exclusion

Exclusion involves sealing cracks, gaps, holes, and crevices to stop rodents from entering and infesting your property.

Bait stations

Bait stations will be used to trap rodents on your property.

Vegetation management

The vegetation management service (VMS) will eliminate weeds or unwanted plants around your home or business.

Commercial rodent control

We know how important your business is to you and we know how frustrating and disastrous a rodent infestation can be. That’s why we offer our discreet and reliable commercial rodent removal and prevention solutions that will get rid of the rodents and stop them from coming back. Ehrlich’s commercial pest management programs are administered under the oversight of our on-staff entomologists and are guaranteed to tackle even the most demanding rodent problems.

Rodent control costs

The costs of rodent control can vary due to a number of reasons, which is why an inspection prior to quoting will provide the most accurate cost. Our rodent control specialist will take into account some of the following factors:

  • Infestation severity
  • Property size
  • Property type (commercial or residential)
  • Number of follow-up treatments required

Signs of rodents

Rodents will use just about any space they can find to get inside a building or home. Since their teeth are constantly growing and they have an innate instinct to gnaw and chew to control this, they are also perfectly capable of chewing their way into buildings, including through wood and even aluminum siding. Some rat species have teeth so sharp and strong they can even chew through softer stone or concrete. Most rodent species also have collapsible skeletons which allow them to make their body very narrow. This means holes as narrow as a pencil or spaces beneath doors that are just barely a few inches off the ground provide access.

Here are the top six signs of a rodent infestation:

  1. Droppings: mice or rat droppings are one of the most common signs of a rodent infestation.
  2. Gnaw marks: rodents can chew through several building materials, including wires and plastic.
  3. Nests: rodents nest in secluded areas where there is less chance of disturbance.
  4. Rub marks: rodents tend to leave dark grease or dirt marks on areas frequently traveled.
  5. Strange noises: scratching noises in the walls often occur at night when rodents are active.
  6. Sightings: rodents breed rapidly. If you spot one, it’s very likely there are others.

The difference between the signs of rats and the signs of mice is subtle, but important — size. Droppings, smudge marks, and holes created by rats are larger. Mice are smaller - chewing smaller holes in walls and leaving smaller droppings behind..
