Signs of rodent infestation
Even if you haven't seen a rat or mouse, there may be other clues of a rodent infestation on your property. Rodents commonly leave behind the following:
- a strong ammonia-like urine odor
- bite marks in building materials and food containers
- solid feces pellets
- nests made from garbage scraps
Although rats and mice are nocturnal, you may see them during the day if you have a severe infestation. An experienced Tarzana pest control technician can determine the size of your rodent infestation.
Rats vs. mice
People incorrectly refer to rats and mice interchangeably. The most noticeable difference between the two species is size. Rats are generally larger than mice. They have larger teeth and a thicker, hairless tail. Rat droppings are larger in size than mouse feces. Both rats and mice can pose health hazards to humans by spreading diseases. Rat and mouse fur can also trigger allergy symptoms and breathing difficulties.
Causes of Tarzana rat infestations
There are several reasons rats may infest your Tarzana, CA property. Unsanitary conditions attract rats and mice. Rodents feed on organic materials like food scraps. They use small pieces of garbage to build nests. Leaking pipes and standing water keep rats hydrated. Bird baths and unattended pet bowls can provide a steady supply of food and water to fuel a rodent infestation. The pest control specialists at 360 Rodent Control can identify factors on your property that may entice rats and mice to settle into your space.
Preventing rodent infestations
The best way to combat mice and rats is to rodent-proof your home. There are several practical steps you can take to discourage rodents from setting up shop on your property.
- Keep your property clean, and eliminate all clutter
- Avoid leaving food and water in pet bowls for extended periods
- Repair leaks, and avoid leaving standing water on your property
- Store food items in air-tight containers

Rodent proofing services in Tarzana, CA
Before an infestation occurs, rodents find a point of entry they can exploit. Mice are able to squeeze through openings as small as the size of a dime. Any crack, crevice, or hole in your home's structure can serve as an entry point for rodents. We specialize in rodent-proofing Tarzana homes to prevent infestations. Our technicians use several different rodent-proofing materials to ensure rats can't regain access once ousted.
Attic and crawlspace cleaning
Rats can do extensive damage to your attic. Over time, rats' tiny claws can destroy the insulation in your home's attic. Compromised insulation causes your home's HVAC to work harder. As a result, you may see a dramatic increase in your heating bills during the cooler months.
Crawl spaces provide rodents with shelter and an easy entry point into your home. If you smell a lingering odor, a rat infestation may be the culprit. We'll clean all rodent contaminants from your home's crawl space. After cleaning, rats and mice can no longer follow their scent trails back to their hiding places.

AC repair after an infestation
Homeowners are often surprised to learn of the relationship between air conditioning and pest control. During hot weather months, a properly-working air conditioner reduces indoor humidity. A professional-grade air conditioning filter can dramatically improve the air quality inside your home. Your air conditioner also plays a role in keeping the indoor air smelling fresh by eliminating odors. Lower indoor temperatures also discourage insects from invading your home. We do air conditioning installation, repair, and maintenance in some of the hottest cities and towns in the U.S. Contact us to learn how our state-of-the-art HVAC solutions can make a difference in your home.
Air duct sealant and repair
Rats can enter your home through unsealed air ducts. Over time, HVAC ductwork can become worn and develop cracks and holes. Throughout the course of their residency on your property, rodents may chew additional holes in your HVAC ducts. Damaged ductwork directly allows conditioned air to escape through holes in the damaged ducts. As a result, you may see a dramatic increase in heating and cooling costs.
If you have a rat infestation in your building’s ductwork, we will erradicate the rodents and treat your property first. After eliminating the infestation, we can seal leaky ducts to keep conditioned air in and rodents out.
Air duct replacement
In some cases, HVAC ducts are so old or damaged that replacement is the best option. If your home has bad air quality, new ductwork may be the key to solving the problem. Signs that you may need to replace your HVAC ducts include:
- high energy bills
- lingering scent of mold or mildew
- aggravated allergies or respiratory symptoms
Some constructions have an inefficient HVAC design. In these cases, some rooms may constantly be uncomfortably warm or cool compared to the rest of the interior. Our team can redesign your ductwork for improved efficiency. An upgraded ductwork design will allow you to consistently maintain a comfortable temperature throughout your space.

Did you know that there is a specific variety of rats that can invade your roof? Roof rats are smaller rodents that are agile climbers. They can hide undetected in tight spaces within your roof. Like other rodents, roof rats can chew through pipes, roofing materials, and electrical wires. Roof rats can also spread diseases to humans.
Maintaining the integrity of your roof is critical to keeping your home in optimal condition and preventing rodent infestations. We provide a variety of roofing services. We install, repair, and replace residential and commercial roofs in Tarzana and surrounding areas.
Electrical rewiring services
Our technicians are available to rewire your home whether you are renovating or if rats have damaged your electrical cables. We are licensed, trained, and experienced in installing, repairing, and replacing electrical wiring.
Radiant barrier installation
A radiant barrier is reflective material that redirects exterior heat away from your home. We can install a radiant barrier if you struggle with keeping your home evenly cooled during the hottest months. If your home receives direct sun exposure, a radiant barrier may prevent your roof from getting excessively hot and transferring the heat internally. A radiant barrier can especially be helpful if you have ductwork in your attic. Using a barrier to reflect excess sunlight away from the attic can be less expensive than replacing the insulation in your attic.
