Rats and mice can cause significant damage inside your home. They destroy most things in their wake. Not only will the eat and spoil your food, they will also spread diseases like hantavirus and salmonella. These diseases can be spread through their feces and urine, which they will leave throughout your home. They can also gnaw tunnels and holes throughout your home. They also pose a threat to electrical wires, which can become a serious fire hazard. Because they reproduce so rapidly, one or two can quickly turn into a full-blown infestation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What types of traps do you use?
Our rodent control services use bait stations to deal with the rodents in your home. The stations are designed and placed so that you do not need to worry about your pets finding them. We will check the traps daily until all of the mice are gone.
How long will it take to clear out an infestation?
The amount of time to clear out an infestation is really dependent on how big the infestation is. However, we will keep setting the traps and checking them until you are rodent free. If there is a large infestation, we will set more traps than we would for one or two mice.
What is the decontamination process?
When we decontaminate a crawl space or an attic, we will spread a chemical that will take care of any odors that are left from the rodents. This is a very effective method of decontaminating your home and helping you and your family to stay safe.
What are signs of a rodent infestation?
There are several signs of a rodent infestation. Mice droppings are black and about the size of rice or sprinkles. Rat droppings are a bit larger than mice droppings. You may also see bits of fur, or hear scratching in your walls or around your home. The scratching may increase at night.
What can I do to prevent a rodent infestation?
There are several things you can do to prevent a rodent infestation. The first is to cover any vents or other holes into your house with metal grating. Check your foundation for cracks and make sure the doors close tightly. You may want to trim back branches that hang over your house and make sure the rodents cannot enter your attic.
EcoTek Pest Control Services
We kept hearing what sounded like scurrying in the attic late at night so we decided to call an exterminator to find out if we might have mice, or even worse rats. EcoTec came out and confirmed that we did indeed have mice which had nested not only in our attic but also within a wall behind the pantry in our kitchen. It took about a week to completely get rid of them, but thankfully we haven’t had them return, plus EcoTek even provided us with an affordable cleanup of all their nestings and droppings along with repairs of all the holes where they had chewed through.
