There is no need to sensationalize the ramifications of rodent diseases that can be spread, directly or indirectly, but they should be noted for awareness and avoidance. How do we keep these unfortunate results of rodent contact at bay? We practice the latest techniques in IPM, Integrated Pest Management, to offer a proactive stance in excluding rats and mice from your home. If our efforts are for the elimination of a rodent infestation, we provide, if necessary, a full mitigation service of rodent trapping, cleanup, decontamination, and restoration.
Prevention is always the best solution. Rodents seek water, a food source, and shelter. Houses located close to a body of water are more susceptible to visits from mice and rats. Rats and mice are endemic in all parts of South Florida. Rodents range from their nesting area to seek food. We request help and cooperation from our customers to lessen conducive conditions that attract these vermin. Maintaining a sanitary and clean outside environment will mitigate the attraction of these critters. Several steps can be taken for their Exclusion.
Landscaping and plants should not overhang the roofline allowing an easy avenue of entry through vents and conduits. All vertical roof penetrations require screening to block access. Soffits and roof hips must leave no spacing for entry. All penetrations of the exterior surfaces should be blocked with a non-rusting metal mesh. Trim plants around the house. Phone lines, A/C conduits, utility lines and clothes dryer vents are some examples that should be inspected for proper seals, and repaired if needed.
If more than one-half inch of spacing exists, rodents are very adept at flattening out and slipping under these small openings. Doors and sweeps, whether garage or entry doors should provide a tight seal.
All areas around windows should be caulked and suitably sealed. Sounds like a lot. It makes sense to call in a professional rodent control service to safeguard your home.
Bait station monitoring around the perimeter of the structure is a proactive deterrent to discourage interior attacks. We highly recommend these devices as part of a full-service rodent protection plan. Rodent Exclusion is the first line of defense. With our initial visit, we will inspect and offer you a checklist of vulnerabilities that may have been the cause, or can become the cause for rodent penetration within your home. We, at Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions, pride ourselves in being a locally owned company that can empathize with your rodent problem and customize a plan of action to eliminate them and keep them out of your house.
Rodent Control Strategy
The rodent control company follows these steps of rodent control West Palm Beach.
Rodent inspection: This step is crucial to determine if rodents have infested your property and the areas one can find them. Your rodent control team will use the information to develop a plan to eliminate them quickly. The crew closes entry points and checks the harboring areas.
Sealing off your property: The rodent control team seals off your property if they discover rodents have infested your house. This step ensures no more animals make it into your premises, and the ones inside don’t have an avenue to escape.
Rodent removal: The rodent control team traps and removes the rodents in your home. They use various techniques, such as live traps, glue boards, exterior bait boxes, snap traps, and catch-alls.
Disease control: Once the crew gets rid of all the rodents, they disinfect the areas the animals may have walked on or lived. This step ensures you eliminate disease-causing pathogens that they may have left on your property.
Rodents are out there. If they become “in there,” then extermination is required using snap traps and other means. Trapping for mice or rats is dependent upon the extent of the infestation. In areas of the home where there is human or pet traffic, the placement of the traps would be different than installation in an attic or ground crawl. Non-poisonous attractants can help lure the rodents to the snap traps. The world has not really built a better “mouse trap” that can effectively capture these mammals. Snap traps strategically placed, are the most effective and humane way to eliminate an infestation. Rodents are intelligent and cautious creatures that may take several days before positive results occur. Our experienced technicians will attack your rodent problem, no matter how unique, to restore your home to a safe and healthy condition.
After a severe rodent infestation, cleanup can be both challenging and hazardous. Our Shoreline Environmental Pest Solutions Co. professional service can take the necessary steps to protect our pest control technicians as the cleanup begins while securing your home or business.

The final interior treatment is sanitizing and deodorizing the attic crawl, and other possible areas, using fogging equipment and industrial grade chemicals and cleaning products.
