Getting rid of mice in a home can be quite the chore and keeping them away is another job in itself. Most of our cutomers call us after they have tried it themselves many times and and just can't take it anymore. There are basically two different ways to get the mice out of your home. The first way is the fastest and most efficient, our Trap and Seal service removes all the mice on the inside of the home and seals up the home from the outside to prevent re-entry. The second way is our rodent control program. This service does what it's title says, it a "control" program. It's a population reduction service, a bait only program that keeps the problem under control. This program does not include rodent proofing, it allows the mice to enter, eat the bait then exit to go outside and perish. As long as your home remains open "not rodent proofed" the rodent population may be under control but the threat of mice inside remains. Our rodent control service is great at keeping the population down and it's certainly better then doing nothing. It's not a permanent solution, it's not the "never" see a mouse again scenario, that would be our Trap and Seal service. Both programs serve a purpose.
TRAP AND SEAL
1. Intensive Trapping: Our Intensive Trapping program is still our best offense for eradicating mice quickly. For mice problems Meerkat PRO-traps are placed in in the crawl space, attic, basement, garage etc and exterior. Our Intensive trapping program will eliminate small or large mice problems very quickly.
2. Rodent Proofing: For a structure to be professionally rodent proofed, all 1/4 inch gaps and larger from the roof top to the lower level sill plate must be sealed. Areas that are sealed include the brick to fascia tie-in, fascia-soffit, dormer tie-in, j-channel, corner posts, chimney tie-ins, foundation to siding, mortar repairs, electrical and plumbing chases, garage door seals, door sweeps, bilco doors, and all other corner intersections. Spaces that need ventilation are usually already sealed with screening, like the ridge vent, louver vents etc. At times there can be rips and tears where flyers and bats can enter. Depending on the location and gap size we use a combination of all weather silicone, high perfomance metal, copper mesh, HW cloth steel screening, mortar and foam based rodent deterrent.
3. Sanitize, Hepa Vac, Odor Control: Once the mice have been eradicated and the home has been rodent proofed, the next step is to clean up the droppings and sanitize the harborage areas and pathways. We also offer odor control. The area's may include the attic, basement, sill plate-rim joist area and the exterior foundation. This step is critical.
4. Exterior Monitoring: This last step is optional but adds additional defense to the outside of the home. After the home is sealed exterior monitoring bloc can be placed in Tamper Resistant Stations which are anchored into the ground. At this point we like to fight the battle from the outside not the inside.
