Rodent control experts in Portland

Many pest problems are a matter of tolerance – how much can you put up with the annoyances they bring? – but this is not the case for rodent infestations. If you spot rodents in your Portland area home or business, it’s an urgent matter that requires rodent control as soon as possible

Rodents are both extremely unhygienic and destructive. Known for spreading over 35 diseases, rodents can make people sick through feces, urine, saliva, and bites. Rodents can also cause property damage through their incessant chewing and nesting behaviors. Our rodent trapping and removal team servicing the Portland Metro area protects you.

Rodent Identification

Rodents may appear to be cute and cuddly to some people, but these pests are not creatures you want in your home or business.

Signs You Have A Rodent Infestation

One of the biggest reasons why rodents come back even after pest control is because your home still has everything they need to thrive.

Why Did Rodents Come Back After Pest Control?

While a spotless home may seem impervious to pests, that isn’t always the case—these pests are incredibly persistent and can invade just about any property.

How Does Rat & Mouse Control Work?

When it comes to getting rid of rats and mice, there’s nothing better than a professional rat exterminator with advanced techniques and cutting-edge treatments. At Summit Pest Management, we focus on long-term rodent control. That means eliminating active infestations and making sure they don’t come back.

Our rat and mouse exterminators will perform the following steps to get rid of your rodent problem for good:

  • Inspection: We start with a comprehensive property inspection to determine the origin of the rodent infestation and identify the rodent species. We’ll present a detailed report outlining the scope and types of rat or mouse treatment needed.
  • Treatment: Cutting-edge rodent control treatments and traps target living rodents where they’re nesting, feeding, and breeding.
  • Exclusion: Sealing cracks and crevices control entry points and eliminate future sources of rodent infestation.
  • Prevention: Our rodent exterminators provide rodent control and prevention tips to avoid future issues.

Common Rodents in the Pacific Northwest

Rodents like it in our region because the temperature mostly stays in their comfort zone – not too hot or too cold – and there’s plenty of moisture. 

These are the most common rodents in the Portland area:

  • Deer Mouse: Deer mice are often found in rural and suburban areas. They can carry hantavirus, which can be transmitted through contact with their droppings, urine, or saliva. 
  • House Mouse: House mice can contaminate food and surfaces with droppings, potentially spreading diseases like salmonellosis. 
  • Norway Rat: Norway rats are larger rodents often found in urban areas. They can carry pathogens that cause diseases like leptospirosis and rat-bite fever. Their burrowing can be destructive and if they gnaw on wires they can even be a fire hazard.
  • Roof Rat: Roof rats are agile climbers and are found in both urban and suburban environments. They can spread diseases such as plague and murine typhus. Their presence can lead to contamination of stored foods.

Reasons Why Our Rodent Control is Better Than DIY Rodent Trapping

It’s tempting to go buy a few rodent traps, set them out, and call it a day. But will the traps be effective? Without a proper understanding of the nature of the rodent infestation, they may not be. They can give you a false sense of security as the rodents reproduce and the problem gets worse right under your nose.

Here are five important reasons why professional rat and mouse removal is better than DIY:

  1. Expertise: Professional pest control technicians have in-depth knowledge of rodent behavior, biology, and habits. They can identify entry points, nesting sites, and sources of food and water that might not be obvious to a DIY rodent remover.
  2. Customized Solutions: Professionals tailor their approach to the specific rodent problem and your specific property. They assess the extent of the infestation and implement a targeted strategy to eliminate rodents effectively.
  3. Long-Term Solutions: DIY methods may offer temporary relief, but they often fail to address the root cause of the infestation. Professionals focus on long-term solutions to prevent rodents from returning.
  4. Time and Effort: Rodent control can be time-consuming and challenging. Hiring professionals frees you from the time and effort required for researching, implementing, and monitoring DIY methods.
  5. Guaranteed Results: DIY rodent trapping is hit or miss. When you work with the professional rodent exterminators at Summit Pest Management, you’re working with a team that will get the job done – guaranteed!
