The Best Way To Stay Safe From Rodents In Phoenix, AZ

Rodents like mice, rats, and gophers can destroy your property and put your family at risk in a number of ways.

Unfortunately, they’re also a notoriously difficult problem to eliminate; that’s where we come in.

After contacting us about rodent control, one of our trained and certified pest control specialists will visit your property to assess the level of rodent activity present. This initial inspection will cover both the interior and exterior of your home, paying particular attention to common areas of rodent infestation including the garage, kitchen, attic, etc. This inspection is free of charge.

Your technician will then tailor your treatment to reflect what they found and the types of rodents present.

If outdoor rodents are present, we will control them using bait stations placed strategically around your home’s exterior. These stations are weighted, locked stations that are safe for kids and pets. If rodents are indoors, we use traps inside locked bait stations. This method is effective for catching the rodents rather than simply killing them, so that we can remove them from the home safely and effectively.

If we detect rodents in the attic (namely roof rats), we will control them using traps. These traps allow us to capture, eliminate, and remove them from the premises. After the entire rodent presence is eliminated, we will typically recommend an attic exclusion seal to prevent them from getting inside in the future.

If we detect gopher activity on your property, we will use a carbon monoxide device called Burrow Rx to treat them. Read on for more details.

After treating your home, we will send our technicians back out at regular intervals to check the traps, remove and replace them as necessary, and monitor ongoing rodent activity around your property. We will also work with you to strategically prevent rodent incursions in the future, including applying wire mesh, steel wool, and other materials to potential entry points in order to exclude them. In the case of roof rats, we will get up on the roof and install wire mesh to roof vents, pipes, and other potential points of entry as necessary to stop rodents from gaining access to the attic.

Burrow Rx

Overson Pest Control uses the Burrow Rx carbon monoxide device to control gopher activity around Phoenix-area properties without using traps. Burrow Rx is an EPA-designated pest control device that carries numerous benefits, including the ability to target rodents directly within their burrows without relying on them accepting rodent bait and with no residual toxicity concerns for other animals and plants in the area. 

Rodent Control FAQs

Q: How can I tell if rodents have gotten into my Phoenix home?

A: Most rodents are nocturnal, so identifying an infestation in-process requires knowing the telltale warning signs they leave behind. Here are some key signs to be aware of that could indicate rodents have gotten onto your property:

  • Small brown droppings, especially in the kitchen or in pantries
  • Gnaw marks around your walls and baseboards
  • Grease smudges left from rodents rubbing up against your walls
  • Paper, fabrics, or plants that have been shredded
  • Tampered food packaging
  • Small coin-sized holes in the exterior of your home 
  • Sounds of scampering or scurrying at night
  • Foul odors in the home
  • Dead rodent bodies 

If you’ve seen any of the above warning signs, don’t wait: contact us immediately for a free inspection!

Q: Are Rodents Dangerous?

A: Rodents can be a very dangerous pest. They can transmit numerous diseases, including salmonella, tularemia, hantavirus, leptospirosis, choriomeningitis, rat-bite fever, and more. They can also be hosts to parasites like fleas and mosquitoes, which can carry diseases of their own. They can contaminate food both through biting into it and by urinating or defecating on it, and they can even start house fires due to their tendency to chew on electrical wiring. Simply put, rodents are a destructive pest that poses real health hazards to humans they share living space with.

Q: Why Is Professional Rodent Control Necessary?

A: Rodents are difficult to treat, and the longer they go untreated, the more destruction they cause. DIY efforts are often ineffective both because they fail to treat the entire infestation, allowing it to return after weeks or even days, and the treatments can backfire in a number of ways, making the problem worse. For these reasons and more, it’s essential to partner with a trusted rodent removal professional in order to ensure the safety of your home.
