Rodent Exclusion

At Aantex Pest Control NorCal we know there is much more involved in ridding a home or business of rodents other than simply eliminating them.

There must also be an exclusion process which, put in simple terms, means to eliminate or minimize all cracks, holes and points of entries where rodents can enter your home or business.

Aantex knows too that this is no easy task, as rodents such as mice and rats only need from 1/4″ to 1/2″ to gain entry into your home or business and they are extremely clever and opportunistic about finding spaces of entry that an untrained eye might miss.

Therefore, part of Aantex’s rodent exclusion services training program requires our technicians have knowledge of rodent behavior, actions and habits which is critical to proper and effective rodent exclusion.

It also includes having knowledge of rodent proof materials when sealing entries, which rodents cannot chew through. Materials such as metal flashing and galvanized steel to name a few.

Our rodent exclusion services include our technicians giving practical advise too which will prevent further infestations. Advise given may include identifying harborage locations where rodents hide or nest or find food. Some of these locations include open garbage cans, wood piles and pet food left out and even bird feeders.

All of this attention to details ensures you can count on Aantex Pest Control NorCal to implement the very best rodent exclusion services to rid your structure of rodents, period and, we will do this in a timely and effective manner.

  • Attics
  • Basements
  • Crawl spaces
  • Roofs
  • Garages
  • Poorly secured or broken attic or foundation vent screens
  • Openings in roof tiles
  • Poorly constructed roof joints
  • Openings around pipes leading to inside the structure
  • Openings around dryer vent and hot water heater
  • Gaps around chimney area

Damage caused by Rats and Mice:

Because rats and mice are known for their ability to chew and gnaw through many different types of materials such as wood, insulation, electrical wiring, duct work, plastic pipes and insulation they can cause minor to severe structural damage.

As well as being the cause of many structural fires in the United States due to their having chewed through electrical wiring, rodents cause millions of dollars in structural damage across the U.S. every year.

Rodents are also known to be carriers of several diseases of which can be potentially fatal to humans. These can be transmitted through contact with their feces or by being bitten. Unsuspecting humans can also be exposed to these diseases and viruses through contaminated food stuffs as well.
