Our Experts Put an End to a Rodent Infestation
Xpert Rodent Solutions encompasses all types of mice and rat control. When dealing with a rat infestation issue we take matters into our own hands by applying what we do best, Rat Control!
Rodents are nocturnal creatures known for eating and contaminating food, chewing on electrical wires, nesting on insulation, making holes on air-ducts, among other damages that can result in major property damage.
What to Look for in Dealing with Rodent Infestation
- The presence of fecal matter (rat droppings), and the smell of urine are good indicators and you should act on it immediately, as rodents can proliferate and cause damages to your property rather quickly.
- Rat damage is not hard to spot as they will chew on almost anything including food, air-ducts, clothes, paper, etc.
If any of the above is found, you need to contact a rodent control specialist right away! We have the skills and knowledge to put an end to your rodent infestation!

Common Types of Rodents
The body is generally about 8 inches long with a blunt nose and smaller ears and eyes. The Norway Rat is filthier and less choosy about its diet than the Roof Rat. Norway Rats tend to choose the low road. They like ground burrows and crawl spaces.
One way to tell which kind you are dealing with is to notice the “bathroom habits.” The Norway Rat will use the bathroom absolutely everywhere while the Roof Rat will leave his/her droppings closer to, even inside the nest.
A little smaller than the Norway Rat and usually smarter, too. The Roof Rat is about 7 inches long and the eyes and ears are a bit bigger.
Roof Rats are a bit more choosy about what they eat. They like fruits, vegetables and nuts, but will eat meat if nothing else is available. Roof Rats tend to like higher places like trees and will walk across wires and plumbing and pipes in your home.
Mice are much smaller than rats, at about 2 to 3 inches in length and less than an ounce in weight. Their droppings are significantly smaller than rat droppings. Most people think they have a mouse, but it is more likely in our area to have a rat.
An adult mouse can fit through a hole the size of a dime. This makes a mouse infestation more difficult to control – especially in older homes that have settled and tend to have other issues with small breeches throughout the home.
Some things you can do to avoid making your house attractive to rodents are:
- Keep plant life away from the roof line and siding of your home.
- Make sure crawl space and offset vents are secure.
- Keep animal food inside at all times.
- Keep dog droppings picked up.
