Long Beach rodent control service
Our holistic approach to rodent control sets us apart from other pest control companies. We apply our understanding of how rodents think, move, and behave to every case. Rodents are scent-driven animals. When they find an area they like, they create scent pathways to allow them to come and go as they please. As rats come and go, they bring additional rodents with them thus increasing their population on your property. The new rats find their own favorite places in your home and create more scent pathways.
We clean up the scent trails so rodents can’t find their way back to their hiding spots. Therefore, once we oust the rats from your home, they won’t return.
Finding rodents in your Long Beach business
Rodents don’t only invade homes. They can make their way into your place of business. Restaurants and other food-oriented businesses attract rats like a magnet. If you feel like you’re in a never-ending battle with rodents in your commercial space, there are things you can do to win the war.
We will examine your property to determine the underlying causes of your rat problem. Perhaps you are storing food in containers that are not sturdy enough. You may not be disposing for food waste and other garbage in the best garbage cans for your situation. There may be maintenance issues like leaky plumbing that is providing a water source for rodents. Our technicians will eliminate the rodent infestation in your Long Beach business and make recommendations to help you remain rodent-free.
Discovering rats at home
Rodents don’t always make their presence known by making an appearance. In fact, they prefer to avoid humans. It’s possible for you to have a rodent infestation on your property long before you see a rat. Fortunately, there are other signs that will let you know that it’s time for you to call a rodent control specialist. Signs of a rat infestation include:
- rodent droppings
- the smell of rodent urine
- the sound of rats running around inside your ceiling or walls
- bite marks on a wall
- a new hole in the wall
- bite marks on food packaging
Contact a rodent control specialist immediately if you discover signs of rodents in your home. Not only are rats a nuisance, but they can affect your health and cause damage to your property.
We’ll get rid of them and clean the mess they left behind.
Health effects of a rodent infestation
Having rodents in your home can affect you and people who enter your home in several ways. Rodents are infamous for spreading diseases to humans. In the 1300s, rodents spread a deadly plague across Western Europe, parts of Asia, and North Africa. Although there are fewer cases of plague today, rodents spread other diseases, including:
- rat-bite fever
For some people, merely breathing the air in a home that has rodents can cause respiratory symptoms. People who have asthma and those who have respiratory allergies may experience symptoms if they are exposed to rodent dander.
Consuming food that has been contaminated by rats can cause illness. Humans can also contract an illness if they touch a surface that is contaminated with rodent bodily fluids prior to touching their own eyes, nose, or mouth with unclean hands. Because rodents are stealthy, it’s possible for humans to touch surfaces in their home without knowing a rodent has contaminated the surface. Protect your health by calling a rodent control professional to resolve your rat problem.
Rodent proofing your Long Beach home
Rodents squeeze into your home through cracks that are as narrow as ¼-inch in width. We can keep rats out by rodent-proofing your home. We’ll seal every crack, crevice, and hole rodents may use as a point of entry if left unsealed. We use a variety of materials to make it more difficult for rodents to invade your space.
Air duct sealing
If you have a traditional HVAC system with ductwork, the air ducts may be doubling as a point of entry for rats. Over time, ductwork can develop cracks or sustain damage. Not only does cooled air escape through the cracks, but rodents are able to infest your air ducts by entering through the cracks. We offer an air duct sealing service to effectively keep rodents out. As a bonus, you may see your cooling bills drop as sealing the air ducts will keep cooled air inside.

How do rodents spread diseases to humans?
Rats and mice can spread diseases directly to humans through scratching and biting. There are also several ways human can be indirectly infected with a rodent–borne illness. Biting insects like fleas and ticks can spread diseases from infected rodents if they bite a human after biting an infected rodent.
What do rodents eat?
Rats and mice are omnivores, so they eat everything humans eat and more! They prefer seeds and plants. They will eat fruit and vegetable waste, grains, pet food, meat, animal byproducts, and a variety of processed foods humans like to eat.
