Physical exclusion of rodents is the most important part of any rodent control program. Physical exclusion keeps rodents from entering your structure and damaging food, equipment, and goods to be sold.
Our licensed inspectors and service specialists will properly inspect your home or business and note all areas where rodents may be able to enter your structure and seal them off to ensure that your facility is “rodent proof”.
Once the structure has been properly sealed a rodent trapping program can be performed to get any rodents that may have been inside during the rodent proofing.
People always ask what we look for and where they can help?
1.) Remove all dead palm fronds as rodent may use them and nest inside them.
2.) Roof vents that are not properly screened off or sealed will allow rodents direct access into the structure.
3.) Air conditioning lines that are not properly sealed off provide rodents a runway directly into the structure.
4.) Trim tree limbs and high plants six feet away from the roof, attic vents, eaves, and utility lines. Thin out ivy and other thick vegetation and leave clearance to stop rodents from harboring on your property.
5.) Remove old non-salvageable items and clutter to eliminate additional harborage areas.
6.) Do not leave pet food out overnight. Be sure to remove pet food trays and pick up all pet feces on a daily basis.
7.) Often times holes from defects in construction or areas rodents have chewed through are found. Part of the rodent proofing includes sealing off these areas using concrete mortar, 1/4 inch galvanized mesh, stucco patch, and construction adhesive to ensure rodent can’t access the structure.
8.) Wood piles and debris piled up along the side of the home allow harborage close to the structure and give rodent a shorter path to enter your home or business.
9.) Dryer and additional vents at the home can provide areas where rodents can enter. We inspect and ensure these vents have not been compromised and seal off all vents that allow access into the structure.
