Rodent Control

Rodents are a serious pest for homeowners throughout Wisconsin. Whether homeowners realize it or not, almost every home we visit has mice living in the basement, walls, attic, or garage. Mice only need a ¼ inch-sized gap to gain access into your home or office. They will travel around the entire perimeter of a building in search of any gap where they can enter. Rodents will oftentimes go unnoticed until damage has already been done. 

Rodents like rats, mice, and voles are both a nuisance and a hazard. They can cause damage to your home or office with their gnawing and nest-building. They can also transmit many diseases like salmonella (food poisoning) and ringworm (fungal diseases). Therefore, effective external rodent control is essential.

How Do I Get Rid of Rodents - Exterior Rodent Control

We here at Advanced Wildlife Control can solve all your residential and commercial rodent problems. Our technicians will thoroughly inspect your basement and attic space for signs of rodent activity and potential nesting areas. An inspection will also be done around the exterior perimeter of your home to identify any entry points that allow access to your home. We will implement a customized plan fit for you to start reducing the rodent population living both in and around your home. 

The most important part of effective rodent control is prevention. Therefore, our technicians will use proper sealing materials (colored sheet metal or heavy wire mesh) to close up any and all entry points. Most of our competitors don’t offer this type of service, but it is a key component of our service.

Our goal here at Advanced Wildlife Control is to make sure your rodent control problems are taken care of as quickly as possible. Therefore, we can be out at your property on the same day when you call or the next day. We do not require any contracts for our customers. You are free to end your service with us at any time.

While rodents have the reputation of gathering in unclean places, having rodents in your home doesn’t necessarily mean that your home is unsanitary. Mice and rats are scavengers. They will find a food source and shelter wherever they can. If your home’s or office’s foundation has a gap or holes, there is a good chance that mice have entered and are living inside, regardless of cleanliness. 

Yes, rodents are not only a nuisance but can cause serious damage to your home or office. 

  • Contaminate food and transmit diseases like salmonella or ringworm
  • Structural damage to buildings from their gnawing
  • Ruined insulation from their nesting
  • Fires or other damage and malfunctions to larger appliances from chewing on wires
  • Lawn damage (vole are the main culprit for this)

Controlling rodents can be very difficult since they can enter your home through the smallest of cracks and crevices. Eliminating sources of food (like bird feeders, gardens, pet food, garbage cans) can help reduce rodent problems. If elimination isn’t possible, try to store such items in thick plastic totes. This can prevent the rodents from feeding on these items. For bird feeders, try to place these items farther away from your home. 

Give Advanced Wildlife Control a call if mice or rats have already entered your home. Our technicians will eliminate your rodent problems and seal up any possible entry points.
