Orkin’s Comprehensive Approach to Rodent Control

At Orkin, we understand the challenges and stress that come with rodent infestations in your home or business. Our comprehensive approach to rodent control ensures that we not only address the current problem but also help prevent future invasions.

Our strategy starts with a thorough inspection. We take the time to check every corner of your property to identify the type of rodent, the extent of the infestation, and how these little critters are getting in. Knowing exactly what we’re dealing with helps us tailor a treatment plan that’s just right for your situation.

Once we’ve got a clear picture, we move on to treatment. Our OrkinShield rodent service is at the heart of our approach. This multifaceted strategy combines non-chemical methods, like sealing off entry points and setting up barriers, with safe, effective chemical treatments when necessary. We focus on keeping rodents out and making your space less attractive to them in the first place.

Safety is our top priority, so we use treatments that are tough on rodents but safe for you, your family, and your pets. We’re all about solutions that last, not just quick fixes. That’s why we also offer advice on how you can keep your home rodent-free in the long run, like maintaining a clean environment and storing food properly.

Rodent Inspection and Identification

We understand the distress and damage rodents can cause to your home or business. That’s why we offer a thorough Rodent Inspection and Identification process, tailored to uncover and address any rodent issues you might be facing.

Our process begins with a comprehensive rodent inspection of your property. We know each infestation is unique, so we take the time to identify signs of rodent activity, potential entry points, and attractants that might be drawing these pests to your premises. Our trained Orkin Pros™ are equipped with the knowledge to distinguish between different rodent species, such as house mice, Norway rats, and roof rats. Recognizing these differences is crucial, as it allows us to create a more effective treatment plan tailored to the specific rodents in your property.

Once we’ve identified the type of rodent and the extent of the infestation, we move on to rodent exclusion. This step is all about showing rodents the door—permanently. We employ various methods, such as installing door sweeps and using caulking, to seal potential entryways, ensuring rodents can’t make their way back in. Maintaining a clean environment is also part of our strategy; we provide guidelines and recommendations to help you eliminate attractants and reduce the risk of future infestations.

Our commitment doesn’t end with the initial treatment. We believe in ongoing monitoring and maintenance to ensure your property remains rodent-free. If necessary, we’ll strategically place traps and select baits to monitor and control rodent populations effectively.

Exclusion and Prevention Strategies

We understand the distress and damage rodents can bring into your home or business. That’s why we’ve developed a robust Exclusion and Prevention Strategy, focusing on keeping these unwelcome guests outside where they belong. Our approach is thorough, encompassing both proactive and reactive measures to ensure your space remains rodent-free.

Following the inspection, we move onto Rodent Exclusion. This involves a meticulous process of sealing off any openings that might serve as entryways for rodents. We employ a variety of materials and techniques, such as door sweeps and caulking, to close off these gaps effectively. Our goal is not just to deal with current inhabitants but to prevent future intruders as well.

Maintaining a clean environment is another pillar of our strategy. We provide detailed guidelines to help you eliminate attractants and maintain cleanliness, reducing the likelihood of rodents finding your property appealing.

Our commitment doesn’t end with the initial treatment. We engage in Ongoing Monitoring and Maintenance, keeping a close eye on your property and the effectiveness of our measures. This continuous vigilance allows us to make any necessary adjustments and ensure the long-term success of our rodent control efforts.

Health Risks and Property Damage

Rodents can pose serious health risks and cause property damage. Our comprehensive approach to rodent control is designed to tackle these issues head-on, ensuring your space is safe and secure.

Rodents, such as mice and rats, can carry diseases that are harmful to humans. When these pests invade our spaces, they can spread these diseases through their droppings, urine, and saliva. Coming into contact with these can make us sick. This is why we take rodent control seriously, using proven methods to keep your environment healthy.

Rodents have strong teeth that never stop growing. They gnaw on wood, wires, and even pipes to keep their teeth short. This can lead to serious damage in your home, like chewed wires which could start a fire, or damaged pipes that could cause leaks. Our Orkin pros are trained to spot these risks and take steps to prevent rodents from causing more harm.
