Pest Control for Rodents

Rodent Control Services

When most people think of rodents, images of scurrying mice and rats come to mind.  When any of these critters decide to hang out in or around your home, they pose significant health and property damage risks.

At Barefoot Mosquito & Pest Control, we’re familiar with all the rodents that make Houston, Austin or San Antonio their home. We know how to eliminate these troublesome pests by taking a naturally-superior approach that minimizes the use of potentially harmful rodenticides. We believe property owners shouldn’t have to tolerate rodents in and around their living space.

How to Keep Rodents out of Your Home

Rodents view a home as a place to nest, stay warm and find food. Rats and mice have the unique ability to compress their bodies and fit through the tiniest cracks and crevices.

You can rodent-proof your home by sealing any openings that could provide access. Keeping a clean home is also essential — even the smallest crumb or unsealed food container will attract these critters. If you have pets, put their food away immediately after feeding, and don’t leave their bowls out overnight.

Because rodents seek suitable nesting locations, you should do your best to remove these sites in and around your home. Try to minimize piles of debris in your attic or basement, as these are popular hiding places. Move woodpiles at least 100 feet from your house and clean up brush and weeds.

Telltale Signs of a Rodent Infestation

While you may not see mice or rats, the following signs can indicate their presence:

  • Scurrying or scampering sounds behind the walls, especially at night
  • Small piles of droppings in pantries and kitchen cabinets or under furniture
  • Claw or bite marks on food packages
  • Nests constructed from newspaper, fabric or other materials
  • Small footprints or trails in the dust on the floor

Some homeowners can deter rodents by using scents like ammonia, pepper, cinnamon or citrus. However, the effects of these methods are usually temporary. A professional rat or mice exterminator can provide a more permanent solution.
