We provide high quality rodent removal and prevention services to most of New Jersey. Mice and Rats are the most common rodents we exterminate and that is because they live wherever humans live. They contaminate food, they damage buildings, and other property by constant gnawing and burrowing. They can also spread diseases to people and pets.
Mice will invade homes in search of food, and shelter and can fit through a hole the size of your finger tip. These rodents have a remarkable ability to adapt and are very agile. By nature mice are herbivores. They prefer to feed on cereal grains, but will eat almost any type of food. They require very little water, because they obtain most of their water needs from their food. When outside temperature drops mice seek warmer living areas, which often include homes. They will choose a safe hiding place to nest and begin burrowing and making paths to their food sources . They create their nests out of any soft material they can find, but most commonly leaves, paper, and grass and will live in this one nest for their entire lives or until their food source becomes scarce. Since mice are so small and secretive, people are often unaware that they have mice living right alongside them – in wall voids, attic spaces, between floors, beneath the house, or behind a cabinet.
Rats often live in the attics or substructures of our homes for months or even years without our knowing it. These rodents damage houses by their nest and tunnel building; they consume, and spoil our stored food: they contaminate kitchen counters, food containers, and eating utensils; and they can spread disease or bite people. Rodents have been known to start fires by gnawing on electrical wiring. They don’t require much water and will eat nearly any type of food, but they prefer foods such as meat and grains. They will jump, swim, and climb to reach a food source.
Prevention is key to avoid rodent infestations and we consult our clients on the best prevention methods for your conditions. Poor sanitation and garbage is an open invitation for a rat infestation. While good sanitation will efficiently limit the number of rats that can survive in around your home, good sanitary practices will not completely eliminate the possibility of a rat infestation, but will make your home less suitable for them to thrive.The most successful rat control procedure is to build them out and make their access to your living area very difficult …All small holes and opening should be sealed shut.
