Mice & Rat Control Services

It comes as little surprise to people living in Metro Vancouver area - mice and rats they are virtually everywhere as they are commonly spotted scooting across city streets, climbing up trees, and even hopping up on cars.  It is a completely different story when these four-legged creatures find their way into your home. 

 

Mice and rats can reproduce quickly and breeding occurs throughout the year.  They are carriers of disease, and can contaminate you and your pet's food.  

 

When they get into your house, they can do substantial damage to the property as they can chew up insulation and wiring, creating fire hazards that can be very expensive to repair. They can cause significant damage by gnawing on paintings, books, mattresses and other material which may be irreplaceable.

 Our Rodent Control Service 

Our service technicians will perform an inspection to identify the type of rodent and set out a treatment plan depending on the situation.  At the same time, you will be notified of any possible entry points and be provided with recommendations for rodent prevention. 

There are various methods in controlling rodent activities.  Poison bait stations, glue boards and/or traps may be used depending on the situation.  Our bait stations have been successfully tested to ensure they can offer effective treatment against rats and mice.  The bait stations are secured so they are safe to use even in areas where children or pets may be present.
