Rodent Extermination in SE Portland

With all the diseases transmitted by rodents, infestation is no laughing matter. Rodents can also do thousands of dollars in damage to your home, business, or even an automobile.

Rodents reproduce quickly, meaning time is of the essence. As nocturnal creatures, many clients don’t see the rodents and realize they have a problem until they are well-established and expanding into multiple areas.

How To Tell If You Have Rodents

  • Poop: Rodent droppings can be less than a quarter of an inch to half an inch or larger. Fresh droppings are shiny and putty-like. Different sizes of poop indicate different generations of rodents.
  • Marks: Rodents often leave greasy marks as they travel, hugging your walls or furniture. Sometimes they will also chew through food boxes and even walls. Holes from the size of just a dime are large enough for rodents to access.
  • Noises at Night: Rodents rest during the day and are active at night. They may make noise while they move through your walls, causing scratching and chewing noises.
  • Your Pet: If their behavior has changed for no apparent reason, you may want to look closer. Pets on high alert can be another sign you have an infestation.

Cleaning Up After Rodents

We encourage all of our clients to err on the side of caution and use a mask and gloves when cleaning up after vermin. The CDC does a great job of providing step by step tips to properly clean up after rodents.

Identifying Your Rodent Problem

Do You Have Rats or Mice?

Examining the droppings left behind by your uninvited guests may not sound appealing, but doing so can tell you a lot about what you’re dealing with.

Mouse Poop

Mice are smaller than rats and excrete poop that is small like rice. It is smooth and pointed on both ends. Most often the mouse poop measures between 1/8 and 1/4 of an inch. Various sizes often is a sign of a larger population with multiple generations.

Rat Poop

Due to their increased size, rats produce larger droppings that are usually brown instead of black and not as smooth. Rats also produce a larger quantity of droppings in a day. Both vermin poop near the food source that drew them to the area.
