The most effective way to keep your home or business rodent-free is to prevent rats and mice from getting inside in the first place. Anyone can set a few mouse traps and call it a day – but All Pest will do more than get rid of your existing rodent infestation – we’ll take steps to fix the root cause and keep future rodents from finding their way into your structure.  Serving Roanoke and surrounding areas as well as Christiansburg and the New River Valley region, our locally owned and operated pest control company is ready to help you resolve your rodent problem

Our Rodent Control Process

All Pest Control follows a proven three-step process for getting mice and rats out of residential and commercial environments – and keeping them out! Whether you need a one-time rodent control or an ongoing solution, it all starts with an inspection of your property.

Step 1: Rodent Inspection
A highly trained and licensed pest control technician from All Pest will thoroughly inspect the area to determine what type of rodent is getting inside, how severe the infestation is, and what property conditions are conducive to allowing rodents inside. The inspection will also determine whether you would benefit from a one-time rodent control solution or if you’ll require ongoing solutions to get rid of rodents.

Step 2: Implement Rodent Exclusion and Baiting Program
Based on the findings of our inspection, All Pest will implement an exclusion and rodent baiting program that eliminates existing rodent activity and corrects the conditions that would allow them to get back inside. For example, we will look for areas on the outside of your home large enough for mice or rats to get inside and can install wire mesh on them to prevent access. Some common areas that may need exclusion treatments include:

  • Air and dryer vents
  • Doors in need of door sweeps and weather stripping
  • Gaps under siding, fascia board, and gutters
  • Holes or rotten areas of walls and siding
  • Openings where pipes and electrical wires enter the home

Step 3: Monitoring and Sanitization
Approximately two weeks after the initial treatment, All Pest will come back to inspect, clean and sanitize the infested area. We’ll check for additional rodent activity and if found, we’ll discuss the next steps with you to ensure a rodent-free home or business.

Rodent FAQ

What space can a mouse fit through?

Generally speaking, if a #2 pencil can fit into a hole, crack or gap, so can a mouse.  Rats can enter openings larger than ½-inch.

How can I tell if I have rodents?

For the most part rodents are nocturnal critters so you may never actually see one in your home.  If you’re concerned that you might have mice and/or rats, the United States Environmental Protection Agency cited these signs of an rodent infestation:

  • Rodent droppings
  • Nesting materials
  • Signs of chewing on food packaging or holes chewed through walls and floors
  • Stale smells coming from hidden areas

For Virginia homeowners, it’s very common to find droppings on their kitchen counters, in drawers, and other areas where food is stored.  They may also discover rodent nests in their attics and other areas where there is less foot traffic.  In fact, rodents often nest in insulation, contaminating it with their droppings and urine. 

Are rodent droppings dangerous?

According to the CDC, there are several diseases that can be spread to humans directly through contact with rodent droppings, urine, and saliva.  Diseases include Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome and Salmonellosis (consuming foods contaminated by rodent feces).
