Let Garrie Rodent Proof Your Home or Business

Rodent proofing or rodent exclusion is the process of making structural to limit the amount of access points that mice and rats use to be able to enter.   It sounds easy, but rodents are expert at getting into small places.  Takes small cracks and holes for example, rats can squeeze through a space ½” wide and mice get through cracks as small as ¼”.  The rule of thumb is, if you can fit a pencil in the hole a mouse can get through.  Additionally, rodents can expand hole by gnawing.

They can climb many pipes that are vertical and are excellent jumpers both horizontally and vertically.   Most people do not know that a rat can jump 8 feet from a branch that is 15 feet above your roof.  Once on the roof, they are highly skilled at finding a way in.  They are equally talented at gaining entrance from the ground or around windows or foundation cracks.  Garrie can complete a thorough rodent proofing of your home to keep them out

  1. Eliminate mice and rats that have infested the building
  2. Infrared scan of home to find the tiniest holes and cracks – even behind sheet rock
  3. Sealing of pipes and electrical wires at the point they enter the building with materials mice and rats will not gnaw through.
  4. Closing and plugging holes or cracks in the building and doing so with materials rodents will not remove or gnaw.
  5. Searching attics and hard-to-reach places in your home or business that offer a way in to the building.
  6. Install pest-resistant insulation.

DEER MOUSE (WHITE FOOTED MOUSE)

Description: This species has a medium to dark brown colored backs and their under bellies and feet are white. They are rather large, with their bodies from 2.5in to 4 in long and their tail being another 2in to 5in long. The deer mouse has larger eyes, ears and body than the house mouse.

Habits: Active year round, constructing nests in hollow areas. Although this species is not as prominent in residential areas, they tend to look towards shelter in homes, garages, occasional campers or unused cars during the fall and winter. Once inside they have the ability to destroy furniture, furnishing, stored materials and foods.

Treatment: Best treatment begins with exclusion, sealing all possible points of entry due to mice being able to fit through a hole the size of a standard pencil diameter. Once they have entered the structure, they can be effectively controlled with traps. Dead rodents and droppings should be removed immediately.

HOUSE MOUSE

Description: The most common rodent mouse. The bodies are mostly gray in color.  They are slightly smaller in comparison to the deer mouse with them being about 3in to 4in long and their tail another 3in to 4in long.

Habits: They are good climbers, can jump up to a foot, and can drop 8ft down. They can fit through a hole as small as 6mm in diameter. They prefer to nest in dark secluded areas, but if an abundance of food is present they will nest within 5ft of the food.

Treatment: Looking for signs of activity such as droppings and rub marks to ensure rodents are present. Sealing all possible entry points, and storing foods where they cannot be accessed is important to control and eliminate house mice. Baited and unbaited traps are important to control this rodent population, furthermore moving traps around helps improve success due to their curiosity.

NORWAY RAT

Description: The body is about 7in to 10in long and tail adds an extra 6in to 8in in length. They are stocky rats weighing about 7oz to 18oz. They are brown to black in color with coarse hairs. They are able to fit through 1/2in hole.

Habits: Nocturnal and become cautious about changes to their environment. Outdoors, they prefer to nest in burrows, railroad track beds, near stream or river banks and next to buildings. Indoors, they prefer to nest in the lower levels and crawlspaces of buildings.  These rats have the ability to cause significant structure damage. Food preferences include meats, fish, and cereals.

Treatment: Proper treatment includes sanitation, elimination of shelter areas, and rodent-proofing. Stored foods should be at least a foot off the floor. Rodent abatements, installation of door sweeps and the placement of bait stations is essential in controlling or eliminating these rodents. With rats being cautious of new objects in their environment, leaving bait stations in the same place helps them to become more accepting of this change.

Fact: Leptospirosis, a bacterial disease, is spread by rats through eating foods and drinking water contaminated with infected rat urine.

ROOF RAT

Description: The body is about 6in to 8in long, and the tails adds an additional 7in to 10in in length. The roof rat has a small body, and weighs about 5oz to 9oz. They have soft and smooth fur that is brown in color.

Habits: Nocturnal and become cautious about changes to their environment. Outdoors, they prefer to nest in trees, but occasionally they will nest in burrows or vegetation.
