How to get rid of Rodents?

Inspection and identification is the first and foremost step in getting pest problems under control. Rodents are some of the most adaptable creatures on the plant and can be extremely difficult to exterminate. Small populations of rodents can become full-blown infestations in very little time.

    Evidence of rodent activity:

  • Observing the animal.
  • Their burrows or dens, plant damage, feces, tracks, rub marks from their oily fur contacting surfaces.
  • Damage to inanimate objects caused by gnawing.
  • Damage to food and food containers.
  • Bits of paper or vegetation they use to construct nests.

Rodents usually gain entrance to a home or building through openings that lead inside from the exterior. However, rodents may hitchhike inside when infested items are brought into the building. They are instinctively wary of things new to their environment, including rat control measures such as traps and bait, and colonize in attics, burrows, under concrete and porches, in wall voids and other hard-to-reach places.

Rodent control is best started prior to infestations. In order to protect your home, business and health from rodent infestations, professional, customized solutions are often necessary.

It is recommended that anyone experiencing a infestation contact a pest control professional to arrange for a consultation. Professionals are trained not only to address current infestations but also to prevent future infestations. Scheduling a home inspection is free and it will save you time and money.


With about 2,300 species of rodents, the appearance and identification of rodents is a very broad and diverse topic. Most rodents that are associated with homes and businesses are mice, rats, squirrels, chipmunks and voles. Other mammals that may be familiar to homeowners, but are not rodents, include rabbits, shrews, moles and groundhogs. Rodents have large incisors they use to chew, have fur, and relatively large eyes.

They can harbor and transmit a number of serious diseases and introduce disease-carrying parasites such as fleas and ticks into your home.

    "A few months back I decided that I wanted to check on different prices of pest control because I felt that I was paying to much with another company. I ended up finding Care Free Pest Control Solutions through my search. I had spoken to Tim over the phone, he was very polite and took the time to speak with me. I didn't feel rushed or as if someone just wanted to make money. Tim came out to the house for a basic routine check and did a wonderful job he even went above and beyond his job of duty. I had told him that my mom had a rat problem at her house. He took the time to make another appointment with me to meet at my moms house and helped recommend what she needed to do in order to get rid of this problem. She was so impressed with his thoughtfulness to take the time and step out of his regular services that she asked for him to become his routinely pest service guy. I highly recommend Care Free Pest Solutions as they provide the every day, to the difficult to even going above and beyond the normal job of duty."
