Rodent Control

Rodent Control in Walnut Creek

Imagine settling down for the evening, only to be interrupted by the tell-tale signs of uninvited guests—the scurry of tiny feet within the walls, a clear indicator of a rodent problem. At California Exterminating Services, we're acutely aware of the chaos and potential harm these small intruders can wreck on both homes and businesses. Our mission is to keep your property safe and secure.

Our philosophy on rodent control at California Exterminating Services hinges on one principle: prevention at the perimeter. It's not enough to simply patch up holes where pests have already entered; true control requires a proactive strategy to stop them in their tracks before they even get a chance to invade. By focusing on perimeter defense, we ensure a robust barrier against rodents, safeguarding your property from future breaches. Trust us to provide a solution that avoids the pitfalls of temporary fixes by delivering lasting, effective rodent control.

With a commitment to efficiency, discretion, and eco-friendly practices, our experienced team is your go-to for reliable rodent management solutions.

Common Rodents in Walnut Creek

Our region is home to a variety of rodents, each presenting unique challenges and requiring tailored control strategies. 

Among the most common are:

  • Norway rats: Larger than most rodents, with brown fur and a heavy build. They often nest in basements or burrow near foundations, posing risks to wiring and plumbing.
  • Roof rats: Sleek and agile, with black fur. They prefer attics and roofs and are skilled climbers, accessing homes via trees or power lines.
  • House mice: Small and nimble with dusty gray fur. They squeeze through tiny openings and thrive indoors, reproducing rapidly and complicating infestations.
  • California ground squirrels: While not indoor pests, these grayish-brown, semi-bushy-tailed squirrels burrow extensively. This can damage lawns and landscapes around Walnut Creek properties.

Understanding the habits of these common rodents is critical to effective control and prevention. At California Exterminating Services, we specialize in identifying and addressing the unique challenges posed by each of these species and more. 

Signs You Need to Schedule Service with Our Team

If you notice any of the following indicators, it's time to reach out to our team for professional rodent control assistance:

  • Unusual noises: Scratching, gnawing, and scampering sounds in the walls, ceilings, or under floors, especially at night, could suggest rodent activity.
  • Droppings and urine trails: Finding small, dark droppings or noticing a stale smell indicative of urine in areas where food is stored, under sinks, or along baseboards.
  • Gnaw marks: Visible gnawing on furniture, door frames, or food packaging often suggests the presence of rodents. These marks may vary in size depending on the rodent type.
  • Nests and burrows: Discovering nests made of shredded paper, fabric, or dried plant matter in secluded areas or burrows around your property's perimeter.

Should you encounter any of these signs, don't hesitate to contact us at (925) 438-6454. Our experts at California Exterminating Services are equipped with the tools to eliminate infestations quickly and effectively. 

How Do I Keep Rodents Out of My Home?

Keeping rodents out of your home requires a proactive approach that combines preparation with vigilance. 

Here are some tips to help you maintain a rodent-free environment:

  • Minimize outdoor attractants: Remove readily accessible food sources such as pet food, birdseed, fallen fruit, and standing water. Ensure trash receptacles and compost piles have tightly fitting lids.
  • Prioritize interior cleanliness: Maintain a clean and clutter-free home. Promptly clean up spills and crumbs, store food in airtight containers, and dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Manage landscaping: Trim trees and bushes away from your home to eliminate potential rodent shelters and access routes.
  • Install protective barriers: Cover vents and chimneys with screens. Utilize door sweeps to seal gaps under doors.
  • Perform regular inspections: Routinely inspect your home, especially during seasonal changes, for signs of rodent activity or new potential entry points.

Implementing these preventive measures can significantly reduce the likelihood of rodent infestations in your home. However, if you suspect you already have a rodent problem or if you'd like professional assistance in rodent-proofing your home, our technicians can help.
