Rodents are a common problem in homes and businesses, causing damage and spreading disease. Rats and mice are the two most common types of rodents, and they can both cause significant issues if left untreated. At Pest Services Company, we specialize in treating rodent infestations to keep your property safe and pest-free. In this article, we’ll cover the basics of rats and mice, as well as answer some frequently asked questions about these pests.
Rats and mice may seem similar, but there are a few key differences between the two. Rats are larger than mice and have longer tails and more prominent ears. They tend to live in outdoor burrows and can cause significant damage to buildings, pipes, and electrical wiring. Mice, on the other hand, are smaller and have shorter tails and rounder ears. They tend to live indoors and can quickly reproduce, causing a rapid infestation if not dealt with promptly.
At Pest Services Company, we use a variety of methods to treat rodent infestations. Our first step is to conduct a thorough inspection of your property to determine the extent of the infestation and identify potential entry points. We then develop a customized treatment plan that may include traps, bait stations, and exclusion techniques to keep rodents out for good.
Our first step is to conduct a thorough inspection of your property to determine the extent of the infestation and identify potential entry points. We look for signs of rodent activity such as droppings, gnaw marks, and damaged materials.
We emphasize the importance of sanitation to prevent rodent infestations from recurring. Our technicians will provide guidance on how to properly store food and dispose of garbage to remove potential food sources for rodents.
We may use a combination of bait stations and traps to capture and kill rodents. Our technicians use bait stations that are tamper-resistant to prevent the accidental poisoning of pets and children. We also use humane traps that allow us to capture and release live rodents outside of your property.
Our team will monitor your property after treatment to ensure that the infestation has been eradicated. We may also provide follow-up treatments to ensure the complete elimination of rodents.
We use exclusion techniques to prevent rodents from entering your property in the first place. This may include sealing cracks and gaps in walls and doors, installing door sweeps, and using wire mesh to cover vents and other openings.

This company has professional technicians and their residential services are very thorough. The technician climbed up on a 40 foot ladder to remove a birds nest in one of my exhaust pipes and they replaced the exhaust cover. I will definitely use them again.– Kelly B. I had a home inspection done, preparing my house for sale. The inspector told me I had termites in one room of my basement. Pest Services had helped me with a mouse problem, so I called them first for a free inspection. The gentleman (Tim) who came took a quick look and told me that I DON’T have termites (thank heaven), but a powderpuff beetle infestation that I can take care of on my own, and said the spray I used for termites will take care of them. He pointed out a few beetle bodies (way tiny) and the webbing they leave. He said he would provide a report for me on PSC’s letterhead to answer the inspector’s problem.I guess it’s awful to be so cynical, but I’ve reached the point when I’m amazed to find such honesty – they could have charged me a lot for my “termites”.– Christine H. They come out each month on the third Monday and they are always on time. They are friendly and will treat for other things if I ask them to. They drive nice trucks and the price is about average I guess.– Garry B.
