Overson pest control rodent treatment process

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 completely free of charge.

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

If outdoor rodents are present, we'll 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. For rodents located 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 your attic (namely roof rats), we'll control them using traps. These traps allow us to capture, eliminate, and remove them from the premises. After the entire rodent infestation is eliminated, we typically recommend an attic exclusion seal to prevent them from getting inside again in the future.

If we detect gopher activity on your property, we'll use a carbon monoxide device called Burrow Rx to treat them.

After treating your home, we'll 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 problems in the future. This includes 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 your attic.

How Much Does Rodent Control Cost?

The cost of your rodent control services will depend on a variety of factors. At Overson Pest Control, we start with a thorough inspection prior to performing any type of service so that we can get an idea of how widespread the infestation is and what services will need to be provided. We’ll then develop a treatment plan customized to your needs and go over the cost estimate with you. Services may include bait stations, traps, exclusion services, and more.

Are Cats Good For Rodent Control?

When you see rodents running through your home, your first instinct might be to go out and adopt a cat from your local shelter. Although we are all for rescuing shelter animals, we don’t recommend this method for taking care of your rodent problem. It is possible that your cat could catch a mouse or two that it finds in your home, but it is highly unlikely that a cat can take care of an entire rodent infestation. Rodents spend time in areas that cats can’t access, and if they feel threatened, rodents are likely to retreat further into your house, making them more difficult to eliminate.

How Do I Control A Rodent Infestation?

The best way to control a rodent infestation is not with cats or with other DIY rodent control methods. Instead, the most effective way to get rid of a rodent infestation and ensure it doesn’t return is to get the help of the professionals at Overson Pest Control. We use tried and true methods of rodent control that we have perfected through our extensive experience. Don’t leave your rodent problem to chance; let Overson Pest Control take care of it with our guaranteed services.

  • Paper, fabrics, or plants that have been shredded
  • Food packaging that has been tampered with

Q: Are Rodents Dangerous?

They can also be hosts to parasites like fleas and mosquitoes, which carry diseases of their own. They can contaminate food with their saliva or excrement and they can even start house fires due to their tendency to chew on electrical wiring. Simply put, rodents are destructive pests that pose a real threat to the 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 will 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.
