Greg came today for scheduled ‘rodent check-up.’ As always, he was very reliable - carefully checking traps, replenishing bait as needed, and looking out for any signs of new rodent activity. He is polite, pleasant to talk to, considerate of my house, and listens to my concerns. Thank you for your efforts, Greg!

What kind of rodents do you get rid of?

The most common rodents we handle are rats, mice and squirrels.

How do you treat for rodents?

Rodent control is not one size fits all. Every home is different and each requires an individualized exclusion program.

ABC will send over a specialist to design a rodent control plan tailored for your home’s unique situation. We will conduct a thorough inspection, identifying the type of rodent with which we’re dealing and any conditions supporting their habitation. We will find and seal all entry and exit points, large and small, and strategically install traps.

And don’t worry—we’ll come back to collect the traps, too.

Are rodents dangerous?

All wildlife is potentially dangerous, but rats pose a particular danger because they spoil food and carry a host of serious diseases transmittable to humans. The two kinds of rats you will find in Dallas/Fort Worth are roof rats and Norway rats—the same rats usually associated with big-city subway systems.

Unfortunately, the rat population in Dallas/Fort Worth seems to be increasing as of late.

What can I do to prevent a rat/mouse infestation?

The most effective way to prevent a rodent infestation is to clear away any food or water sources that might attract and support them.

But sometimes rodents will take up residence in your attic or behind your walls, despite your best efforts. This is especially common in the winter months, when rodents seek out shelter and warmth.

How do they get in? Usually through hidden cracks and holes which may be hard to locate if you’re not a professional.
