New Jersey Rodent Control and Proofing


The only time a mouse or other rodent is even vaguely entertaining is when it turns up in cartoon form. When you find a rodent problem in your Monmouth County home, you have to act fast. Rodents breed at remarkable rates, and an aggressive response is the most effective method for dealing with them. Common rodents include mice, rats, squirrels and chipmunks.

Control the Rodent Damage

The reason you want to remove rodents from your home as soon as possible is the degree of damage they can cause. All rodents chew to keep their teeth from getting too long. Some are extremely protective of their nests. Squirrels will attack if they feel their young are threatened. Regardless of species, they all seek out food and have no difficulty getting into your pantry and gnawing holes in anything appealing.

The first thing you need to do if you see rodent droppings in your home is to call a pest control expert. We can provide same day follow up and can set up bait or traps immediately. Next, try to eliminate as many sources of food as possible. Realistically, it is impossible to remove all food from your home, but getting things off the floors, into sealable containers and the fridge will reduce the attraction.

Don’t Try it Alone

Mice can produce 30-80 offspring a year. Those offspring will be reproducing in short order as well. You can see that these numbers are beyond anything an amateur can deal with. Additionally, larger rodents may get aggressive and squirrels are smart enough to outwit the average homeowner; just think about how quickly they manage to figure out “squirrel proof” bird feeders.
