Mouse Elimination & Exclusion (Mouse-Proofing) Services
When domesticated rats or mice are purchased from a pet store, they can be cute, intelligent and fun pets. But when wild rodents enter homes, warehouses or businesses in search of food or shelter, they become pests, and you need rodent control services soon!
Mice and rats are highly destructive. They consume 1/5 of the world’s grain supply and contaminate much more. They cause millions of dollars of damage each year to buildings, books, documents, stored foods, and clothing. Other common complaints are holes in siding, foundation disruption, and soil erosion from tunneling. Clearly, rodent control is the necessary step to prevent mouse problems from spiraling into further destruction.
Protecting your home with rodent control
Mice and rats need to be controlled to ensure the health and safety of your household. It is estimated that as many as 80% of house fires of unknown origin are caused by rodents chewing through wiring in walls or other electrical equipment. Rats and mice have been implicated in transmitting over 50 diseases (viral, bacterial, and parasitic) such as food poisoning, rat-bite fever, hantavirus, and intestinal worms. Both rats and mice can, and do, bite people. Rodent control is more than just dealing with a nuisance — it’s a safety issue.
Practicing rodent prevention at home
Rodent prevention at home means practicing good sanitation inside your home, garage or barn. Even so, most homeowners will have a mouse infestation sooner or later. Once mice enter human living spaces, rodent control becomes necessary.

How to get rid of house mice & rodents
Mice are not easy to eliminate. Successful rodent control requires a good working knowledge of mouse habits and a keen eye in identifying the “hot spots” in a home.
Our rodent control services begin with a thorough inspection to determine the extent of the problem and to identify entry points. We can then customize a treatment program to match your specific needs. Eco-Advantage Pest Control uses modern, effective, and low-impact rodent control methods to eliminate mice or rats. Our knowledge lets us choose the best methods for your situation and needs.
Let Us Mouse-Proof Your Home
Getting rid of mice for good by mouse-proofing your home. Once the mice are removed through rodent control, you need to keep them out. Mice proofing, or mouse exclusion, means taking steps to seal and close all openings that mice can use to get inside. A mouse can enter through a very small opening. If you can stick a wooden pencil into an opening around a pipe, for example, a mouse can probably squeeze through. If the opening is too small, but a mouse can find an edge to gnaw on, he will make that opening bigger. It only takes one or two small openings for mice to find their way in. If you don’t eliminate or seal up entry points, the mice will be back — and you’ll be calling us for rodent control all over again!
As part of our mouse-proofing service, we will do a thorough inspection of your home, inside and out, to locate potential rodent entry points. We then select from a variety of products and methods to mouse-proof your home and keep it rodent-free, such as installing door sweeps, thresholds, and sheet metal barriers, and caulking and screening gaps and openings.
