We Can Solve Chronic or One-Time Rodent Problems

Every home has different needs, some only have a one-time rodent issue that can be solved quickly, other’s need a more in-depth solution. We divide rodent issues into two categories: incidental and chronic. Incidental rodent issues are typically a one-time problem. But, chronic rodent control issues can cause long-term problems for you and your family. 

In all cases of heavy rodent infestations, there are typically reasons behind the issue. These reasons can include:

  • Pet food in easily accessible areas.

  • Bird feeders around your home.

  • Doors not properly closing, allowing rats, mice, and other rodents access to your home. 

If you’re deemed to have a chronic issue, our team will create a personalized plan of action for your home! 


Different Solutions Available and Customized Treatments

We know that those dealing with rats, mice, and other rodents want the rodents gone as soon as possible. This means creating a multi-pronged approach for your home. Our plans can include: 

  • Initial trapping- elimination of any current rodents through a trapping plan designed for your home.

  • Rodent exclusion repairs to correct any structural issues allowing rodents to enter your home. 

  • Rodent population management through the use of exterior baiting systems in certain environments. 

  • Excellent guidance to help prevent any future infestations.

Your customized plan of action will be written clearly for you to reference at any time! Give our team a call today at 515-518-8864 to get your customized plan.

Rat Control in the Midwest

Rats are just apart of living in the Midwest, but that doesn’t mean they need to live in your home. The most common rat we encounter in our area is the Norway rat. 

The Norway rat is about seven inches long with a short nose and ears that look too small for its body. These creatures are most active at night, meaning it’s incredibly important to remember to shut your doors as it gets darker. 

Typically, the Norway rat will nest in burrows or any pre-existing holes outdoors but can gain access through quarter-sized holes into your home or beneath exterior doors. 

If your home has Norway rats, you need rat control from Miller Pest & Termite. The combined shedding of hair and dander can cause significant allergies and rat urine is historically responsible for the spread of Leptospirosis


Mouse Control in the Midwest

The common house mouse is typically the mouse problem most homeowners have in the Midwest. Much smaller than the Norway rat, the house mouse measures around three inches an is gray with small, pointed ears. 

They can reproduce very quickly and are also a nocturnal creature. Their small size allows them to nest in a variety of indoor areas that are secluded—especially near heat, moisture, and food sources. 

You may think your home is impenetrable, but a house mouse only needs a hole the size of a dime to gain access.
