Our Rodent Control Process
Our technicians begin with a thorough inspection of your property to identify any signs of mice or rat infestation. We will also work to identify any potential entry points that may be inviting mice and rats into your property.
Based on our inspection findings, our team will deploy the most effective and eco-friendly rodent control techniques. This may include the use of traps, baits, or monitoring systems that are carefully placed to capture rodents safely and humanely.
We utilize trapping in structures where only a few rats are present. Trapping is an effective method of control. It is the preferred method in homes, garages and other structures where only a few rats are present. Trapping has several advantages: 1) it does not rely on inherently hazardous poisons; 2) it permits the user to determine if the rat was killed and 3) it allows for disposal of rat carcasses, thus eliminating odor problems that may occur when poisoning is done within buildings. However, trapping is useless if the procedures to prevent reinfestation are not followed.
Not only do we remove rodent infestations, but we also provide advice and support to help you prevent future problems. Our technicians can offer guidance on ways to keep your property clean and secure to minimize the risk of attracting rodents.

What Types of Mice & Rats Do We Exterminate?
At Green Pest Solutions, we have experience dealing with a variety of rodents, including:
House mice are small rodents with relatively large ears and small, black eyes. They weigh about 1/2 ounce and usually are light brownish to gray. An adult is about 5 to 7 inches long, including the 3- to 4-inch tail. Droppings, fresh gnaw marks, and tracks indicate areas where mice are active. Mouse nests are made from finely shredded paper or other fibrous material, usually in sheltered locations. House mice have a characteristic musky odor that reveals their presence. Mice are active mostly at night, but they can be seen occasionally during daylight hours.
Deer mice are small, light gray-brown rodents with large eyes and ears. Their hind feet are larger than their front feet. They can attain a body length of 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 inches with a tail of 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 inches. Deer mice have white bellies and feet but may have some light brown
The Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus, also called the brown rat or sewer rat) is a destructive pest found in urban and suburban neighborhoods. These rodents eat and contaminate food, damage buildings and other property by their gnawing and burrowing, and may spread diseases that affect people and pets. Norway rats are husky, brownish rodents that weigh about 11 ounces. They are about 13 to 18 inches long including the 6 to 8 1/2 inch tail. Their fur is coarse and mostly brown with scattered black on the upper surfaces. The underside is typically grey to yellowish-white.
The roof rat (Rattus rattus) is also known as the black rat, tree rat, or ship rat. They are found in coastal areas and generally prefer to live above ground in shrubs, trees, and dense vegetation. Roof rats have long tails that are about 8 1/2 to 10 inches long with small ears and eyes. Their fur is soft and usually brownish-grey in color with lighter underparts. Roof rats are good climbers that often live in attics or above cupboards in homes. They can cause damage to wiring, pipework, and insulation by chewing into them. They also gnaw on wood structures and may spread diseases.
The woodrat (Neotoma sp.), also known as the packrat, is a rodent that can be found throughout North America. They are nocturnal and often live in rock piles or trees. Woodrats have large ears, protruding eyes, and gray to brown fur with white patches. Their tail is smaller than the roof rat’s and it has a
Recognizing Mice & Rat Infestations
The presence of mice or rats can be detected by droppings or evidence of fresh gnawing. Tracks can be seen in mud and on dusty surfaces. Runways and burrows may be found next to buildings, along fences or railroad tracks, and under low vegetation and debris
What do mice & rats eat?
Mice and Rats will eat nearly any type of food, but they prefer high-quality foods such as meat and fresh grain. Rats require 1/2 to 1 fluid ounce of water daily when feeding on dry food. Rats have keen taste, hearing and sense of smell. They will climb to find food or shelter, and they can gain entrance to a building through any opening larger than 1/2 inch across.
How quickly can they take over?
Rats have litters of 6 to 12 young, which are born 21 to 23 days after mating. Young rats reach reproductive maturity in about three months. Breeding is most active in spring and fall. The average female has four to six litters per year. Rats can live for up to 18 months, but most die before they are one year old.
The Importance of Controlling House Mice
Because house mice are so small, they can gain entry into homes and other buildings much more easily than rats. As a result, house mouse infestations are probably 10 to 20 times more common than rat infestations. Effective control involves sanitation, exclusion, and population reduction. Sanitation and exclusion are preventive measures. When a mouse infestation already exists, some form of population reduction such as trapping or baiting is almost always necessary.
A key to successful long-term mouse control is limiting shelter and food sources wherever possible. Trapping works well, especially when a sufficient number of traps are placed in strategic locations. Trapping also can be used as a follow-up measure after a baiting program. When considering a baiting program, decide if the presence of dead mice will cause an odor or sanitation problem. If so, trapping may be the best approach. After removing mice, take steps to exclude them so that the problem doesn’t recur.
