If you hear strange sounds in your attic at night, like scratching or scuffling, it could mean you have unwanted visitors – rodents. These are small animals like mice or rats that can cause problems in your home or business. But noises aren’t the only sign. If you find small, black pellets on your kitchen counter or in your cupboards, see holes chewed in your food packages, or notice greasy marks on your walls, it’s likely that rodents are around. And when these little creatures get inside, they can create big issues. They might damage your home’s insulation, chew on electrical wires, mess with plumbing, and even harm the structure itself. What’s more, rodents can carry and spread up to thirty-five different diseases to humans. So, if you notice any of these signs, it’s a good idea to consider Optimus Pest Control to keep your home safe and healthy.

Rodent Trapping

Our experts in rodent control are skilled at getting rid of roof rats or mice in your home. They strategically place traps in areas where rodents typically move. Since rats can be cautious around traps, putting them in the right spots is crucial to make sure they don’t avoid them in the future. Our technicians find these pathways by searching for signs like rodent urine, feces, and rub marks throughout your home. Roof rats often live in groups of five to ten, so we use many traps to quickly reduce the existing population. We at Optimus Pest Control can keep the various pests away from your home or office.

Most commonly, we set traps in the attic. However, if you’ve spotted rats in other parts of your home, we’ll also place traps along their usual paths. If your home doesn’t have an attic, we typically put traps on the outside foundation. This way, we catch rodents as they leave the house at night to find food and water.


Rodent Exclusion and Rodent Proofing

Preventing rodents from getting into your home is a crucial part of rodent control. Our team of experts uses integrated pest management practices to identify areas around your house that might be tempting entry points for rodents. We at Optimus Pest Control not only seal off potential entry points but also provide you with tips to make your property less appealing to rodents.

Rats are pretty agile and can travel up to 300 feet, using jumping, climbing, and gnawing to enter buildings. Roof rats, in particular, can create access points on your home’s exterior due to their sharp teeth and the ability to squeeze through small holes, even as tiny as a nickel. By sealing even, the smallest holes, we can prevent rats from entering your house.

Common areas we focus on sealing include the AC chase where air conditioning lines enter, plumbing vents on the roof, roof returns, soffit vents on the eaves, and gable vent screens. Rodents often sneak in through damaged garage door seals as well.

Removal of Contaminated Insulation and Attic Sanitation

After successfully removing rodents from your home, there’s still work to be done. Rodent feces can transfer diseases, so it’s essential to address any contamination. We recommend removing and replacing contaminated attic insulation to ensure a clean and safe environment.

For attics that have been affected, we offer services like contaminated insulation removal and replacement. This process helps restore your attic to its clean state before rodents invaded.

Additionally, we provide attic fogging using a powerful disinfectant. This fogging is highly effective against viruses and disease-causing bacteria, ensuring that your home is thoroughly sanitized and free from any contamination left behind by rodents. It gives you peace of mind, knowing that your living space is now safe and healthy.
