The Road To Rodent Removal Starts Here

One or two rodents in your house may not seem like a big thing, especially if it’s just the occasional house mouse. But the breeding habits of rodents alone, both of mice and rats, should be a cause for worry. On average, a female can give birth to up to 50 pups a year, effectively increasing the rodent population if left unchecked.

It’s not just that these animals multiply fast. These pests are carriers of bacteria that can contaminate food sources, leading to severe allergic reactions and diseases. Rodent droppings are known to spread diseases and viruses, producing adverse symptoms and side effects that can inevitably lead to death.

For instance, a rat bite can cause rat-bite fever. Individuals who are exposed to contaminated food or were directly bitten by rats have symptoms like fever, muscle pain, vomiting, and headaches. This fever causes inflammation and skin irritations. Patients typically develop ulcers on the hands and feet, which take several weeks to heal.

Having rodents scurrying in your home isn’t just a health concern. These pests can chew through wood and wires, causing unbelievable structural damage. Professionals estimate that at least 20% of undetermined fires in the United States were due to electrical wire damage caused by pest infestations.

What Causes More Damage?

Don’t let its smaller size fool you, a small mouse can wreak havoc on wiring and wood just as effectively as a big rat. This pest will gnaw on wood, cloth, and books to get more material for their nests.

In some cases, a mouse will directly damage your furniture to build a comfortable, snug nest. Check stored furniture in the attic and basement from time to time to ensure you don’t have pests hiding in your belongings.

Don’t underestimate the size of a small mouse - book a mice control service as soon as you see two or more running around your house.

Rats are just as bad, if not worse, than mice. Because of their bigger size, they can deal more damage in a shorter amount of time. Just like their smaller counterparts, rats can chew their way through drywall, insulation, and wiring. Some people even report rats chewing through cinder block.

Rodent Infestation: Why Your NJ Home Has It

Pest control begins by eliminating the factors that increase the chances of an infestation. Poor sanitation is the foremost reason why mice and rats invade your home. Uncovered water sources, food left strewn about, and even pet feed can invite these pests into your home. Clear out food and water sources in your home to prevent rodents from moving in.
Regularly check your basement, attic, and other uninhabited areas in your home for signs of pests. If you observe chewed wires or unexplained damage to furniture, you can book an exterminator service for a preliminary inspection.
Early intervention is the key to avoiding a grave infestation. Get control services the minute you observe a pest in common living areas.
Most importantly, fortify the structure of your home to keep mice and other pests out. Seal windows and doors, and repair any holes that could be a potential point of entry. Being as small as they are, the standard mouse only needs a ¼ inch hole to get into your property.

Signs of Mice and Rodent Infestation

  • Droppings around food and water sources
  • Signs of nest or scattered nesting material such as shredded paper, fabric, or wood
  • Chewing on food packaging and containers
  • Chewed holes on walls, furniture, and belongings
  • Sounds of scratching, fighting, or scurrying in the walls or above the ceiling

How Mouse and Rat Extermination Works

At PermaKill Exterminating, we incorporate integrated pest control for our extermination service. We provide a variety of tools and use different techniques to achieve successful removal for New Jersey homes. We combine both chemical and non-chemical control techniques for effective rodent and mice control.

Strategic Baiting and Snap Placement

Snaps quickly reduce the population of mice and rats, while lowering the chances of pests dying in your wall. We catch as many rodents as possible through our strategically placed traps. In just a day, you can already see the population dwindling. After a week, we return to your home to catch any remaining mice with bait.
Even the shiest mouse will come out of its hole and explore our trap. Our goal is to catch any stragglers and ensure there are no longer any mice in your property.

Mice and Rodent Extermination FAQ

How much does rodent removal cost?

Pest removal in New Jersey varies depending on the severity of the infestation. We don’t provide cookie-cutter solutions and treat each case differently. Get in touch with PermaKill Exterminating today to get an obligation-free quote for your pest problem.

Will a pest control service remove mice and rats from my house permanently?

Yes, employing an extermination service is an effective way of rodent and mice control. However, these pests are known to resurface every year. Our rodent control renewal plan is designed specifically for customers who need mice control during the fall and winter months.

With this program, we prevent recurring nesting in your home and ensure mice and rats don’t move in your home for a whole year. Learn more about this service by getting in touch with one of our representatives.

How will I know if the pest removal was successful?

The biggest sign that your home is mouse free is when you have not heard scurrying or scratching noises for over a week. Other signs are:

- not seeing any mouse droppings for over a week
- food not being damaged
- no fresh smell of urine
- no mouse tracks 

We will return a week after the initial control services if signs of infestation persist. We’ll work tirelessly with you to ensure all mice are rounded up and dealt with that day.

Can I deal with mice and rodents on my own?

Unassisted mice control is laborious and tricky. It might take weeks before you get anything in your traps - at which point a fertile female mouse or rat has already given birth to new pups.

Don’t risk getting bitten by a rat or a mouse. Contact PermaKill Exterminating for a swift and urgent pest control service in NJ.
you deserve a pest-free home.
