Don't let mice and rats damage your property
If you’re hearing noises in ceilings and walls at night, have noticed rodent droppings in your home or business, or have discovered chewed belongings and wires and contaminated insulation, belongings, or stored products, there's a good chance mice or rats are trying to take over. For effective rodent control services that stop these destructive pests, Getem Services is the local pest control company to call!
Customized rodent control services
When you contact Getem Services about getting rid of mice and/or rats, we'll start by performing a comprehensive inspection to determine the size, nature, and location of the infestation. Our highly-trained rodent exterminators are thorough and inspect both inside and outdoors, including, but not limited to the attic and crawl space. If there's rodent activity on your property, you can count on us to find it!
Upon completion of our rodent inspection, your pest control specialist will review findings, recommend a plan, and then we'll provide you with a rodent control quote.
Rodent Control Solutions
When you partner with our team of experts we will implement a multi-step solution that uses a combination of removal methods to eliminate the existing rodent population and prevent new rodent activity from occurring. Our services are customized to your home or business but may include:
- Installing interior rodent traps (including attic & crawl space)
- Using exterior bait stations
- Rodent exclusion services
After our initial service is complete, we'll return for three follow-up visits- one every seven days. Should you see or smell rodents in traps in between our follow-ups, simply give us a shout and we'll handle it.
If, during our inspection, we notice potential entry points and other conducive conditions, we'll let you know and recommend exclusion services. Exclusion, or pest-proofing, consists of sealing up cracks, gaps, and other openings that mice and rats can squeeze through, including:
- Foundation vents
- Screen vents
- Openings around pipes and utilities
- Crawl space doors
- Holes in the walls
- And more!
