Bret definitely deserves a bonus and recognition for how great and thorough he has been since he's been helping me and my husband with our rodent problem. He caught 18 rats and has been able to communicate everything so clearly every step of the way. I can't express enough how thankful I am to him. I trust him fully with my home and dogs.
Depending on which area of Austin you live in, any variety of rodents or animals may become an unwelcome presence in your home. Mice and rats are the most common rodents, but we also help our customers with squirrels, raccoons, opossums and armadillos.
All of these rodents can create problems. They may gnaw through electrical lines and water lines, create holes in walls via sheetrock, baseboards and siding, and get into and spoil stored food. They also pose a health risk when they take up residence in your home (even if you don’t actually see them) because they carry pathogens in their urine and feces, which they spread around your home as they mark trails and go about daily activities.
You can use a variety of mousetraps and similar devices to try to get rid of a lone mouse or a rat. Your cat may even think a mouse is little more than a snack. But odds are that if you see one mouse (or rat) there are others you don’t see.
A single mouse can produce a litter of six to eight mice in just three weeks. Moreover, they are adept at hiding during the day, and then venture out at night in search of food. For other, larger forms of wildlife, basic traps won’t work at all—you need a professional solution.
Ultimately, in doing it yourself, catching them isn't your biggest hurdle. By far the hardest part is finding their access and egress points and permanently sealing those up - otherwise...
We use a thorough treatment approach that has proven successful against every form of rodent and wildlife. First, a licensed inspector will inspect your home to determine the nature and extent of the problem. Whether it’s one pest or many, our inspector will zero in on the problem, where it exists and how extensive it is. Then, a highly trained rodent and wildlife control specialist will use the information gathered by the inspector to apply a treatment that is specific to the problem you are facing.
The specialist may set traps, find and close potential entry points through which the pests are getting into your home, maintain and remove wildlife caught in traps. We take the process seriously and we offer a full one-year warranty on our service.
