Mice and rats can reproduce quickly. Mice and rats are extremely adaptive and can be difficult to control. Mice and rats are a common household and industrial/commercial pest.

Why they are a problem:

  • Damage to buildings and infrastructures: Entry/exit holes in structures, chewed electrical wiring and gas lines, damaged and contaminated insulation, sewer lines, concrete slabs.
  • Loss and damage to food
  • Transmission of disease and bacteria to humans
  • Allergies
  • Unsanitary droppings and urine
  • Fear and anxiety

Finding the SOLUTION:

  • Inspect and monitor for activity such as droppings, urine stains, gnawing, burrows, entry/exit holes, rub marks (dark grease marks left on surfaces from the grease on the hair of the rodent)
  • Mechanical exclusion on structures using copper wool and hardware cloth (rat-wire) or replacing damage material with new building materials.
  • Keep all pet food and human/animal food properly stored in sealed containers.
  • Remove any food and debris from floors and living areas.
  • Keep interior/exterior of structures clean and sanitary.
  • Remove trash from structures frequently.
  • Keep sinks clean and free of dirty dishes and standing water.
  • Keep lids on trash cans and dumpsters.
  • Maintain sewer lines.
  • Keep grass cut on exterior and remove unnecessary debris from yard such as piles of logs and sticks, piles of leaves, grass clippings.
  • Set mechanical traps (snap traps) in areas of activity and move traps frequently in those areas. Use small amounts of food attractant on these traps. Use food that the rodent is currently feeding on to bait the traps. Do not always use peanut butter; use the food that they are familiar with to bait the traps.
  • Call Royal Pest Solutions to implement a rodenticide approach to control rodents including rodenticide stations on the exterior to intercept the rodents before entering the structure.

Termites Swarming


It is not always possible for an untrained individual to see evidence of termites. Homeowners must be vigilant in and around the home.


Flea Infestation


Summer and fall are prime seasons for flea infestations, and with both humans and pets spending more time outdoors.


Rain & Mosquitoes


Not only can mosquitoes carry diseases that afflict humans, but they also can transmit several diseases and parasites that dogs and horses are very susceptible to.
