Rodent exclusion is a comprehensive approach to preventing rodents from entering your property. It involves identifying and sealing entry points, removing existing rodents, and implementing preventive measures to keep them from returning.

How Our Rodent-Proofing Works

If you are concerned that rodents are or could invade your home, you should consider eliminating the threat of invasion through a rodent exclusion service, also called “rodent-proofing”. Through rodent-proofing, you are identifying potential entry points for rodents and eliminating their access to your home.

There are a few steps in the rodent exclusion process. If performing these steps on your own, make sure you are meticulous in how you approach each step. Rodents find ways to get through weak protective measures. If hiring a company to perform rodent-proofing on your behalf, make sure you work with someone you can trust to identify and seal off all potential entry points.

Steps In The Rodent-Proofing Process

At HomeShield Pest Control, each rodent exclusion service includes the following steps:

1. Inspection

The first part of rat and rodent-proofing any home or portion of a home is to inspect the area. During this process, we keep our eyes out for the telltale signs that rodents have invaded your space, or could invade your space. These signs include droppings, signs of chewing, nesting materials, or any holes or openings that rats and rodents could fit through. You may also be hearing sounds in your attic or walls.

2. Identification

Through the inspection process, we identify weaknesses in your home’s protective barriers—entryways where rodents can make their way into and out of your home. These can be large or small and can be hard to spot to the untrained eye. Rats, mice, and other rodents are wily, dexterous creatures that can fit through very small openings and even scale walls. It often takes a professional eye—someone with years of experience—to identify all entry points rodents could be using.

3. Sealing

Once weaknesses have been identified, we work to shore up those weaknesses and seal off entry points, closing off rodents’ abilities to make their way into your home. We do this by closing up holes and/or reinforcing weak barriers. Often insulation and drywall are hiding rodent entry points. The sealing process could require insulation replacement and repair to ensure your home is 100% rodent-proof.

4. Clean Up*

We always recommend an attic cleanup for homeowners that have dealt with a rodent infestation. An attic cleanup ensures any hazardous rodent droppings are removed and that the space is fully decontaminated. This process keeps your family safe and healthy and also eliminates odors that could attract new rodents.

*This step is optional, but recommended!

5. Monitoring

Since rodents are pesky pests that find and create ways to burrow into your home, we recommend ongoing monitoring—especially if you have had rodent problems before. When you work with HomeShield, this monitoring comes included in our standard pest control service.

    Homeshield was great to work with!
    “Homeshield was great to work with! My wife and I encountered a really bad termite problem at our new home during the renovation phase, and needed treatment asap so that renovation could resume. Mike drove all the way down for an inspection, and was very thorough in his explanations. He was able to match a competitor's price for the treatment and locked in a day for the following week. Daniel and Elias, the technicians, were very communicative about their ETA and did a good job explaining their respective roles. All in all, a quick and easy process. Thank you, Homeshield!”

    Ben was FANTASTIC

    Ben was FANTASTIC in every way, He came to give me an estimate on my home, was on time, polite, knowledgeable, and extremely professional in how he handled everything. Had 4 other termite co. to give me an estimate, not even close to Ben's expertise, I would give him a 10 if I could. Will definitely use him in all my other projects , they are a lot since I am in real estate and have many clients.
