Rodent Proofing Vs. Rodent Control
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 Rodent Proofing service. Both programs serve a purpose.
Basic Rodent Proofing
All rodent proofing is not the same! We offer two different services our basic rodent proofing service (caulk, foam, copper mesh,) and our more advanced Rodent Stop Metal X System. If you are trying to solve your rodent problem for good one of these two systems are needed. You will never fully solve a rodent problem with bait or traps alone, peppermint oil, moth balls, electronic sound and other home remedies either don't work, make things worse or offer a short term band-aid for a few weeks at best.
With traps alone you may catch the current mice inside the home but there's nothing stopping the next batch from moving right in. Bait is a form of Rodent "Control", it doesn't eliminate the problem on its own, it's meant to reduce the population and if it's not done by a professional there is a chance of exposure to kids or pets. Worst of all open bait containers leave rodents to die in your wall voids creating a nasty odor from the dead carcass. The only way to eliminate the odor is to locate the spot in the wall, cut out a section and hope you find 'em. This is a costly situation you want to avoid, I promise you. The other problem with open bait in a home is rodents have a tendency to gather it and store it somewhere else in the structure. This is a problem as you may never know where it is and worse they can bring it into your living area's like your kitchen, bedrooms or laundry rooms. The only way to fully eliminate a rodent problem for good is to seal up the entry points to eliminate the transient situation of coming in and out. This should be the center piece of any rodent proofing strategy to keep mice or rats out for good. Basic Rodent Proofing includes the use of Silicone, caulk, foam deterrent, steel wool and copper mesh. The more advanced Rodent Stop Metal System is meant for long term solutions and carries a better warranty then our basic rodent proofing package.
For a permanent solution to your your mouse problem, our Rodent STOP Metal X System answers the call and completes the job with precision and performance. Utilizing high performance metal, we wrap the foundation at the siding tie-in with the color of your choice. We don't overlook any other gaps or potential entry points either, on a typical home in the northeast that is on average 10 years old, there can be over 15 diifferent points of entry for mice and other nuisance wildlife like bats and flying squirrels. Included with our Rodent Stop Metal System is our famous "basic rodent proofing service" which includes all 1/4 inch gaps and entry points around your foundation, siding, wire & plumbing chases, garage door seal, windows and doors tie-in, vents, fascia, soffit, gable, eves, ridge vent, returns, chimney, corner posts, roof, faulty gutters or shingles, dormer tie-in, and all other corner intersections.
Metal X works for Mice, Rats & Insects using a combination of High Performance Metal. The Metal is a Pre-Painted Metal in which we can match to the color to your siding or use a base white trim. It doesn't just work well, it looks good too! For mice and rats, we install and anchor exterior bait/ monitoring stations for additional protection if needed. It's the best exclusion system on the planet and we back it up with a full 100% Warranty. Exterminator for Mice - Get Rid of Mice for Good in 5-7 Days
