Rats and mice can quickly take advantage of any source of food or shelter. These rodents normally consume food discarded by us. Rats and specially mice can fit through the tiniest of openings to gain access to a building or a room. Peninsula Rodent Control can eliminate these pests from your home, and prevent them from returning.
Rats and Mice pathways are normally fence rails, sill ledges, foundations, electrical wires, pipes, tree branches and conduits. We will inspect your home, outbuildings and landscape for signs of droppings, gnaw marks and burrows and other known rodent infestation signs.
Rats can fit through a 1/2-inch opening or the diameter of a thumb. Mice can fit through a 1/4-inch opening, or the diameter of a little finger.

As part of of the process of rodent elimination, we can identify the areas in need of rodent proofing, to prevent further infestation. It is VERY IMPORTANT to close all holes in exterior and interior walls, permitting no openings over 1/4 of an inch, particularly around doors and windows Install self-closing devices on frequently used door ways.
It’s important to identify conditions that enable the rodent problem to exist, and then implement corrective measures.
Eliminate the rodent’s food and water source.
Identify habitat areas and eliminate them indoors and outdoors.
Keep grass and vegetation cut short. Tall grass protects rodents from predators.
Cut back overhanging trees. Overhanging trees provide dark, shadowy areas where rodents feel safe and protected.
Remove piles of debris from the exterior of the structure. Garbage and clutter around the perimeter are habitat areas for rodents.
Establish a 2-foot-wide barrier of cement or crushed rock around the structure.
Improve sanitation practices in and around the house.
