Rodent Control – for Austin, Texas

Rodent Control | September 17, 2019

learn more about controlling rodents in the greater Austin area.

The end of summer and into the fall months are prime times for rodent issues. The decrease in available food has the larger rodent populations looking for new food sources and often that means moving into a house or business. Rodent control is something that homeowners and businesses should practice all year long because a single mouse can cause significant damage to a home or business. Their secret? They are prolific. 

Rodents, which include mice, rats, squirrels, and gophers, are a very large group of pests. Dealing with rodent pest issues starts with identifying the rodent. How we handle squirrels is different than how we deal with mice, for example. 

Squirrel Control 

Tree Squirrels can be trapped and relocated. Ground squirrels are such a noxious pest that the only choice is eradication. The big problem with ground squirrels is that they live in colonies. Once you have them on your property, they are horribly difficult to remove. While they are present, they can cause substantial damage and they attract other pests, such as large snakes. A colony of ground squirrels is so destructive that they can ruin the foundation of your home or even cause your home to become unstable. 

Rats and Mice 

Traps and bait systems work best to control mice and rats before they become an issue. This is equally true of a business or a home. For homes, outbuildings are also a prime target for mice or rates who need shelter from the winter and access to food. Businesses that have warehouses are also a target for mice and rats and how those pests are dealt with depends on the type of business and the goods stored in the warehouse.

We offer monthly pest control services that are affordable and can help control mouse and rat pest issues before they occur. 

Gophers and Yard Pests 

Gophers can be a big problem around the yard as are voles. Mechanical traps can help keep the population of both gophers and voles down, but a baiting system works best. It is important to use rodent bait systems responsibly as sick rodents can impact other organisms, including pets. Reach out to our team for more information about safer options to deal with lawn and yard rodent issues. We offer a line of green pest control services that can help reduce pests while minimizing lateral damage. 

Rodent control methods change from one season to the next. That is because of the different types of natural pressures that rodents undergo throughout the year. During the summer, squirrels are more of a pest than are mice due to higher food availability outdoors for rats and mice to forage. After harvest, the number of available food drops and rats and mice becomes more of a pest. They begin to also look for shelter and nesting locations where food is available, and that usually means your home.
