Rodent Removal and Control
Are you looking into rodent removal services for your pest problem?
Rodents are some of the most common pests that homeowners struggle with. Because of their ability to fit through small holes, they can easily intrude on your property.
If a rodent decides to nest in your home or commercial building they can do extensive damage as they gnaw on electrical wiring and wood to create their nests.
Aside from the physical damage, rodents also pose a considerable health hazard to your family and pets. Rats and mice can carry ticks and fleas, infect your pets, and infest carpets. This can result in a much more problematic pest infestation.
The first step in rodent removal is to identify the type of pest you’re dealing with. The location of nests in your home may vary depending on your rodent problem. Mice can squeeze through dime-sized holes and door sweeps, and tiny gaps.
Delaware, Virginia and Maryland are home to two types of rats: roof and Norway. As the name suggests, roof rats prefer high entry points and often nest in neglected attics. Norway rats prefer to live in grassy areas but may take up residence in your home and commercial building when the temperatures drop.
A thorough house inspection will allow us to identify the pest and their nesting sites. This will also help us find points of entry that we can remedy following the proper removal.
Removal and Exclusion
Many rodent removal companies implement lethal methods to capture and eliminate pests. However, these methods can be dangerous to humans and other animals.
Chemical control weaponizes toxic fumes to immobilize and kill rodents but can put your pets at risk.
Wilkins Wildlife specializes in humane pest removal methods that are safe and effective.
Our physical rodent control methods involve a live burrow trap for burrowing rodents. We also have other live traps to capture rodents nesting in your home or commercial building.
Following the removal, we will utilize exclusion techniques to prevent the re-entry of unwanted pests.
