satisified customers

We have had ant issues in the house for years, tried two different companies with little to no success getting rid of them. Upon a referral we called Dominion Pest Control and from the initial visit we have had NO ants all! We started to see a few rodents around the yard so our first call was to Dominion, but more importantly, they sent out Malcom to assess the situation. I am confident that Malcom got the job done right the first time. Thanks Malcom.

Basic Rodent Biology
​​
In our area, we deal with 3 main rodents; Norway Rats, Roof Rats and Mice. Don't be fooled by their awkward cuteness. These guys are all carriers of blood borne pathogens and are very dangerous to the integrity of your home. A full grown rat, as a general rule can fit into any hole in your home the size of a quarter or bigger. Mice can fit into hole the size of a dime or bigger. Rodents will soil the insulation in your home, chew on the various utilities (pipes/wiring) and have cause your home to have unhealthy air quality. One thing they tend to do is soil the insulation on the outside of the air ducts. Since the ducts are warm in the winter and cool in the summer, they will nest and travel on top of the ducts going to the bathroom as they go. This is a known cause of allergies and weakened health due to contaminated air. Please visit cdc.gov for more information.

The following is a brief highlight of each kind of rodent including basic biology:

Norway Rat
The body is generally about 8 inches long with a blunt nose and smaller ears and eyes. The Norway Rat is filthier and less choosy about its diet than the Roof Rat. Norway Rats tend to choose the low road. They like ground burrows and crawl spaces. One way to tell which kind you are dealing with is to notice the "bathroom habits". The Norway Rat will use the bathroom absolutely everywhere while the Roof Rat will leave his/her droppings closer to, even inside the nest.

Roof Rat
A little smaller than the Norway Rat and usually smarter, too. The Roof Rat is about 7 inches long and the eyes and ears are a bit bigger. Roof Rats are a bit more choosy about what they eat. They like fruits, vegetables and nuts, but will eat meat if nothing else is available. Roof Rats tend to like higher places like trees and will walk across wires and plumbing and pipes in your home.

House Mice
Mice are much smaller than rats, at about 2 to 3 inches in length and less than an ounce in weight. Their droppings are significantly smaller than rat droppings. Most people think they have a mouse, but it is more likely in our area to have a rat. Sorry! An adult mouse can fit through a hole the size of a dime. This makes a mouse infestation more difficult to control - especially in older homes that have settled and tend to have other issues with small breeches throughout the home.

 

Some things you can do to avoid making your house attractive to rodents are:

  • Keep plant life away from the roof line and siding of your home.

  • Make sure crawl space and soffet vents are secure.

  • Keep animal food inside at all times.

  • Keep dog droppings picked up.
