Rat & Mice Pest Control
Residential & Commercial Rodent Extermination Serving Bergen, Morris, Essex, Passaic & Somerset County
DID YOU KNOW…RATS AND MICE CAN ENTER YOUR HOME THROUGH OPENINGS AS SMALL AS ¼ INCH?
As the weather cools down rodents want to enter your home in search of food and a place to nest.
Rodents are not only unsightly but they are vectors of over 50 diseases including salmonella, bubonic plague, tapeworm, hantavirus, lyme disease and asthma.
MICE HAVE HAIRLESS TAILS AND ARE DARK GREY
RATS ARE BROWN OR GREY AND HAVE HAIRLESS EARS
- Rodent populations in the wild are kept down by natural predators but in human dwellings where harborage and food are abundant, temperatures are comfortable the number of rodents can boom
- House mice will give birth to 3-16 young per litter and will give birth to a new litter about once per month
- Norway rats will give birth to 2-33 young per litter and will also give birth to a new litter about once per month
- House mice will leave 40-100 fecal droppings in an evening and will leave 3000 droplets of urine in 24 hours (imagine them running across a food counter)

We recommend the following preventive procedures for your home and office in order to prevent infestations from developing and growing:
- Trim trees and bushes at least three feet away from buildings.
- Cover garbage cans and remove any debris away from exterior of building.
- Weather-strip exterior doors.
- Seal crevices around doors, windows, vents and outdoor plumbing entry points.
- Screen all windows and vents.
- Keep food, garbage and birdseed in sealed containers. If you have birdfeeders clean up bird seed that falls onto ground.
- Store all food products including coffee, tea, sugar, salt, jelly etc. in closed tight lidded hard plastic or metal containers.
- Clean all food debris from your areas where you eat and your office desk area, lounge tables, and food and coffee preparation areas on a daily basis
- Do not throw out wet or moist drinks or food in garbage receptacles but instead wash out food and drink containers in a sink before disposing
- Try to keep all storage materials off the floor in your basement, garage, crawl space and offices in order to eliminate nesting areas and allow for thorough inspections
- Correct exterior and interior moisture problems including leaking flashing, clogged gutters and downspouts, roof leaks, plumbing leaks.
These additional recommendations can help keep other pests (including carpenter ants other crawling insects) from infesting your home.
- Remove tree stumps within 50 feet from a building.
- Seal knotholes in damaged trees.
- Make sure that the grading of the soil is tilted away from foundation walls.
- Keep leaf litter away from the foundation of building.
- If you use mulch keep it six inches away from the foundation and do not overmulch.
- Store firewood off the ground and away from buildings.
- Only bring firewood in the house that you will use that day.
- Eliminate wood to soil contact.
- Replace any rotten wood.
