Rodent Control

Protect Your Virginia Beach Property From Rodents

When mice, rats, and squirrels get into your property, they can create issues. These animals have strong teeth that can chew through building materials and damage the belongings in your attic and storage rooms. They chew on wires inside walls and are considered a fire hazard. They soak attic spaces with urine and leave their droppings in many places. They also present a health threat by spreading harmful bacteria which can contaminate food sources and sensitive areas. At the first sign of rodent trouble, reach out to Mosquito Elite Pest Control. We offer effective rodent exclusion and control services in Virginia Beach and the surrounding area.

Our Rodent Control Process

There are three components to rodent control. If you understand what they are, and how they work together, it is easy to see how rodent control works.

Habitat Modification

Rodents come into your yard because your yard offers a beneficial area to find harborage, hunt for food, and find a drink of water. If you alter these conditions, you can reduce your interior rodent troubles. We will advise you on some of the ways you can make your property less interesting to rodents and help out as we see opportunity. Some suggestions we may make are to:

  • Put bagged trash into covered containers and disinfect trash containers to remove smells that attract rodents and other animals.
  • Move wood piles, construction materials, and objects away from the exterior.

  • Trim bushes and shrubs in landscaping and remove unnecessary vegetation.

  • Address conditions that create standing water.

  • Remove containers that capture rainwater.

  • Move bird feeders away from the exterior.

  • Pick up dog droppings on the property.  

Structural Modification

When rodents explore the exterior of your property, they look for holes and gaps to squeeze into. Mice and rats are particularly attracted to tight spaces and will enter your property through foundation cracks, gaps around water mains, damaged door strips and weatherstripping, decaying wood, and more. Our technicians address these holes by applying sheet metal, wire mesh, and steel wool to prevent access. And, as much as possible, we work hard to make these structural modifications blend in. We typically repair any entry points that are smaller than 12 inches by 12 inches.   

Rodent Control Products

Once rodents have been reduced and entry points have been addressed, trapping and baiting are used to remove rodents from around and inside your property. This is a laborious and unsavory process that, when performed by someone without training and experience, can be a frustrating chore that achieves little or no results. We do this hard work for you, and make sure your rodent infestation is properly addressed by returning every two weeks to check for rodent activity and remove any deceased rodents.
