Rodent Elimination in
We are your one stop shop to ensure your home is rodent free by repairing rodent damage back to its original fixed condition.
Do you ever hear that annoying scratching noise in your attic or walls while you’re trying to sleep? Have you even set traps and does it seem the rats keep coming back? This is because rats are smart.
The key to eliminating rats comes in three steps. Rodent proof entire home, trap rats, clean up droppings and odors. Most companies will send a technician to seal all visible and accessible entry points with a can of foam, then set traps and with a three month warranty. Our process is much different. We will crawl and rodent proof your entire attic, base of your home and roof line with construction material like mortar and metal flashing.

If we cannot get to accessible rodent entry points, then we will need to repair your home. For example, if your roof is spanish tile and rats are getting under the tiles and into your walls. Then we will need to remove a layer of roof tile and repair your wall. Once we have sealed all entry points from the base of your home to the top of your chimney, then if there are any rodents still inside your home, then they will get very hungry and have to eat off the traps. We will return weekly until your rats are gone for good.
Here is how rats were accessing under home along the sewer line. We needed to fill this gap with cement so rats could not come back.
Here is how rats were chewing a hole into the attic. We needed to screen the exposed section of attic with galvanized mesh to rodent proof this home.

ATTIC CLEANING & TAP Insulation
Many people get their attic cleaned without repairing rodent entry points. But what happens if you get your attic cleaned and rodents get back in your attic? This can be a major headache. Our plan is to thoroughly inspect all accessible and inaccessible rodent points of entry. This way your attic will stay clean.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, worldwide, rats and mice spread over 35 diseases. These diseases can be spread to humans directly, through handling of rodents, through contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva, or through rodent bites. Diseases carried by rodents can also be spread to humans indirectly, through ticks, mites or fleas that have fed on an infected rodent. Inhaling dust from dried rodent urine, feces and nesting material can also result in illness.
In California, the most common diseases caused by rodents are Typhoid, Rat Bite Fever, Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis, Salmonellosis, Hantavirus, and Rabies. If you think you have come into contact with rodents and are having symptoms contact your health care professional immediately.
This process involves:
1) Bagging up all infested insulation.
2) Vacuuming droppings and debris with hepa filter.
3) Seal all rodent and animal entry points with wire mesh with 100% visibility.
4) Wipe down rub marks and all bacteria with sanitizer.
5) Apply an odor encapsulation enzyme to remove all smells.
AFTER – Install TAP Insulation
This green insulation for new and existing homes & buildings made from recycled paper that incorporates a borate-based pest control into the product. Unlike traditional insulations that use rolls of fiberglass, T.A.P layers onto surfaces like paint. The smallest cracks and crevices will be seal to reduce energy loss and keeps pest from entering your structure. While the borates toxicity levels are too low to harm people or pets, the levels are lethal to insects such as mites, silverfish, spiders, ants, and termites. T-A-P insulation offers energy star efficiency by having superior thermal and sound-deadening properties and a unique method of pest control. The features and benefits outweigh the cost of this revolutionary product.
