Quick and Efficient Rodent Extermination Services
Few tasks are more unpleasant than removing rodents from your home or business. That said, when they’re in your home, it’s important to get rid of them, ASAP, because they pose multiple dangers to your family and home. Rats and mice carry and transmit multiple dangerous diseases, directly and indirectly, including rat bite fever, salmonella, the plague, hantavirus, leptospirosis, tularemia, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, and more. Plus, they can damage your home’s structural components and even trigger house fires by chewing through wiring.
Rather than trying to tackle rodent removal on your own, contact our experienced rat and mouse extermination team. Our trained technicians will quickly and efficiently handle your rodent removal—and, even if you only see one or two rats or mice, plenty more could be hidden in and around your Southwest Ranches home.

Types of Florida Rats
Norway rats are typically gray or brown and can grow up to 16 inches long. They have scales on their bodies, including on their ears, with tails shorter than their bodies. Because they like to burrow, you may find them in your crawl space. One female can have more than twenty babies during her one-year lifespan.
Roof rats are also commonly found in Florida. Typically brown or black, a full-grown adult may be eight inches in length with a long tail and large eyes and ears. They like to hide in dark spots in homes. Females in this rat species have about the same number of offspring annually as the Norway rat but have, on average, a three-year lifespan.
Our rat exterminator team will identify the species in your home and create a personalized rat control plan to take care of your infestation.
Types of Florida Mice
The house mouse thrives across the United States throughout the year. They build nests indoors in kitchen cabinets, wall voids, garages, and attics. They are most active at night but sometimes move about in the daytime. They have a noticeably musky odor.
Deer mice (field mice) are more likely to be outside although they may seek shelter in bad weather—in crawl spaces, attics, and basements. They may also build nests in wall voids. This species is also nocturnal.
Signs of Rodent Infestation
Although you may see rats or mice in your home, you may be more likely to see signs of them first. For example, you may spot shredded paper, fabric, insulation, or dried plant debris that rodents use to build nests in their areas of preference in or around the home. Droppings are commonly found near the nests, by sources of food, and on the pathways they use to navigate through your house.
To keep their sharp teeth from becoming too long, rodents gnaw on materials: from paper and cardboard to plastic food packages as well as on components of your home. You may see where they’ve chewed on wooden structural elements along with your walls and floors.
You might hear rustling, scratching, and scurrying sounds, especially at night. Or, you could smell unpleasant odors. They can come from rodent urine or, if it’s especially strong, it could be from a rodent that died in the home.
If you’re wondering about whether you have rats or mice in your home—and you have pets—pay attention to the behavior of your cats and dogs. If they act in unusual ways or focus their attention near an appliance or piece of furniture, they may be aware of rodents nearby.
If you’d like a professional rodent control company to inspect your home, please contact us online. We’ll take care of your rat removal/mouse removal needs and provide an exclusion service to keep them out while also sharing additional strategies to keep rats and mice out of your Southwest Ranches home for good.
Keeping Rodents Out of Your Home
To keep rats and mice out of your home, reduce or eliminate ways for them to get inside. This includes trimming back tree branches and foliage away from the home’s exterior ways. That way, they can’t serve as entry ramps inside. Locate and seal up gaps where pipes and cables come through the walls from outdoors, using silicone, caulk, steel wool, and other materials. Also close up smaller cracks and crevices. Rodents can slither into surprisingly small spaces.
Make sure that rats and mice can’t easily find food or water in your home. Put leftovers away, including in your pets’ bowls before you go to bed. Because rodents easily gnaw through boxes and bags typically used to store pasta, crackers, cereals, and chips, transfer them into tightly sealed plastic or glass containers. Wipe up crumbs and spills on countertops, on and around appliances, tables, and more. Keep trash cans tightly lidded both inside and out and fix leaking pipes.
Rat Exterminator/Mouse Exterminator and Exclusion Services
Rodent removal is the first step of the process. Our experienced rodent control technicians will thoroughly inspect your home to find signs of rat and mice activity and their points of entry into your house. We’ll use advanced trapping and baiting techniques. This will allow us to eliminate any rats or mice inside the home.
Once the home is rodent-free, it’s important to keep them out. With our exclusion services, our team will locate and seal off entry points. With our rodent monitoring and maintenance service, our rat control team will strategically place tamper-proof bait stations in your Southwest Ranches home to provide your family with total pest control protection.
Our well-trained team will then return to monitor and maintain bait stations through our annual rodent service protection plan. The result? Uninterrupted protection from unwanted rodents.
