It is no doubt that rodents are one of the most hated resident pests. Rats and mice take advantage of our food and shelter, easily multiplies and co-exist with us in every building we live, eat and work. Rodents are especially well designed for carrying and transmitting disease and damage our property.
My parents have been using Attack Pest Management since the 1980’s. From Jim to Jeff, they have been very happy with the company. Besides their excellent customer service, their pricing is one to beat. No doubt they have been in business for this long. Thank you Jim and Jeff!

Rodent are very prolific and their population grows quickly. It is best to target rodents when the population is still low and immature. An effective rodent control strategy involves sanitation measures, rodent proofing (exclusion), and population reduction (trapping and baiting).
We will identify what kind of rodents we are dealing with in order to make an effective control strategy ( the most common species are house mice, roof rats and Norway rats). Our professionally trained technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your home and identify any signs of rodent activity and potential entry points and harborage. We take home sanitation and structural conditions of the property in consideration. At the end of the inspection, we develop a customized plan to address your specific rodent problem.
When a rodent infestation already exists, some form of population reduction (e.g., trapping) is typically necessary to help control the rodent population already inside the home. Many factors, especially placement, account for the overall success. 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. By not relying on inherently hazardous poisons, we can make sure rodents are disposed of properly, and avoid any unpleasant odors.
Sanitation and Vector Control
- Sanitation: The most effective rodent control begins with prevention. Trash should be disposed of properly, and sanitary conditions should be impeccably maintained. Rodents can survive in small areas with limited amounts of food and shelter. So no matter how clean, all places where food is stored should be made rodent-proof as a preventative measure by keeping food tightly sealed in metal or glass containers. Both human and pet food are incentives for rodents. Cardboard boxes are attractive to rodents as they chew them up for use in their nests. Our pest control professional will provide you with detailed recommendation to remove objects which attract rodents.
- Vector Control: The technician will also provide a thorough pest control treatment to eradicate vectors commonly living with rodents such as fleas, mites, roaches, and other feasting insects.
An ongoing monitoring program ensures any exclusionary measures remain intact for the long-term. We will regularly monitor your home to ensure the rodent prevention plan is effectively working and make 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.
Even when rodents and associated insects have been eliminated, it may be necessary to sanitize your property as there may have been long-term contamination left behind by rodent feces and urine. Our technician will apply a sanitizing agent to all affected surfaces in order to eliminate the diseases associated with the rodent’s by-products.
Removal of rodent droppings is a serious business, so we use a HEPA vacuum system to prevent dried fecal matter from becoming airborne. Removal of soiled insulation may also be necessary as part of the sanitation portion of the program. Our technician will discuss the rodent sanitation plan best suited for your particular needs.
