Get Rid of Mice and Rats
Rats and mice invade homes and buildings in search of food, water, and shelter. The Pacific Northwest has one of the highest populations of rodents in the United States. There are 3 common rodents that we deal with here in Washington State: the House Mouse, the Norway Rat and the Roof Rat.
Their filthy lifestyle is evident from the biological contamination of their urine, droppings, and afterbirth that surround their nesting sites. Rodents can damage or destroy insulation material found in crawlspaces and attics, costing property owners hundreds of dollars. A rat or mouse must gnaw on objects to wear down their teeth and prevent overgrowth. If given enough time, they can gnaw through just about any material. They pose damage to building infrastructures like electrical wiring, ducting, doors, and weather stripping from their chewing and gnawing . Since most home fires are caused by electrical problems, a rodent infestation can pose a significant risk to your home and family. Rodent droppings can also carry the HantaVirus as well as other allergens, toxins, and bacteria.

End Rodent problems in 4 easy steps.
Initial Inspection & Treatment
Inspect and begin treatment
On the day of your first appointment, your Technician will inspect for rodent activity, damage from rodents, and evidence of any other pest problems. Treatment begins after reporting our initial findings to you. Your Technician will set traps, bait stations, and other child-safe and pet-safe rodent control devices wherever activity is found. Your technician will recommend scheduling an exclusion survey to find all potential entry points allowing rodents into your home. If this is not recommended then your technician will come up with the best plan to protect your home.
The initial service usually takes 1 or 2 hours, and we’d like the homeowner to be present to meet your Technician, let us inside, show us where you have noticed activity, as well as hear our findings and recommendations on how to get effective control of the infestation.
Get them out
After setting traps and other rodent control devices inside the home or the crawlspace or the attic, your Technician will need to return to check the traps, replenish the bait, dispose of carcasses, and relocate control devices wherever activity is evident. The goal of these proactive follow ups is to get the rodents out, and follow ups are usually recommended every 2 weeks.
Follow Ups stop when inside activity stops. The last followup marks that last time that we do inside treatment. Each followup treatment is individually priced, there are no bundled fees and we do not require continuing service contracts.
Repair, Sanitize, and Deodorize
Clean up and repair
Your Technician may recommend additional services necessary to make repairs and clean up after severe infestations. Regular rodent control is often more effective when we can seal up and repair entry points where rodents are getting in and out. Your technician can perform most repairs needed to exclude rodents from your home. After the initial Exclusion Survey your technician will put together a bid to repair all the areas he finds that rodents could use to access your home. They could be entering via the crawl space or attic areas of your home and then accessing the inside of the home. We want to stop them from being able to ever get into your home.
Other recommendations may include removing filthy insulation from your crawlspace or attic and replacing it with new material, or perhaps utilizing an enzyme spray to digest odor-causing bacteria and viruses commonly found in rodent feces and urine.
