Rodent Control

Commensal Rodent Control - Commensal means to live with man while giving nothing back. Rodent means to gnaw or chew.
Rodents are the most common mammal in the world, in population and in number of species. 

Rodent populations grow very quickly; it is best to target them when populations are small before it becomes a large infestation. A successful and effective rodent control strategy typically involves sanitation measures along with trapping and / or baiting. We refer to it as exclusion and population reduction.

When Your Arab Termite & Pest Control Technician services your home or business for a rodent infestation, they approach it in a way that ensures the quickest possible results. Arab understands each home or building is unique and our professionally trained technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your structure, identifying any signs of rodent activity and potential entry points, taking the time to understand your individual needs. At the end of the inspection, your Arab pest control professional will develop a customized plan to address your specific rodent problem.

A small hole or crack around water or electrical penetration or a poor fitting door is enough space for a pest to gain entry into your home. Rodents are capable of squeezing through holes that appear to be much too small for them - mice can enter a home through a hole as small as a dime; rats can enter through a hole as small as a quarter. The most successful and permanent form of rodent control is to limit shelter and prevent rodents from entering your home. Your Arab Pest Professional will identify the access points rodents and other pest can use to gain entry to your home or business, Your Arab Pest Professional can make the exclusion modification for you, or you can do your own repairs.  Ether way rodent proofing your structure is the best way to keep rodents and other pests from entering your structure and making your structure their home.  

Arab Termite & Pest Control will inspect your home to find any rodent entry points – such as any holes, crevices, or gaps that are larger than 1/4 inch through which rodents could use to enter your home - and seal them. By removing the places rodents have to find shelter and rest, hide, or build nests and rear young. Your Arab Pest Professional will also look at the area surrounding your structure for potential rodent habitats or common hiding places and make recommendations.

Trapping & Baiting
When a rodent infestation already exists, some form of population reduction is necessary to quickly reduce the rodent population. Rats are very leery of anything new in their environment and will avoid a freshly placed trap so this process could take a few days or up to a few weeks. The technician will routinely check and promptly remove the rodents as they are trapped. Baiting is an excellent tool in eliminating rodent populations that exist now, and to keep new rodents that have been introduced into your structure from making your home their home. 

Long Term Monitoring
An ongoing monitoring program ensures any exclusionary measures remain intact for the long-term. Your Arab Pest Professional  will regularly monitor your structure to ensure the rodent prevention plan is effectively working, making any necessary adjustments. We will consult with you and provide education on ways to prevent future rodent infestations. Our goal is to deliver a long-term rodent-free environment and to provide 100% customer satisfaction.

Your Arab Pest Professional will work with you to identify areas that can improve in sanitation. Proper sanitation is a very important component of a successful rodent prevention program. Some improvements can be as simple as securing your trash lids, moving stored product from the walls, and storing product in pest prof containers.
