Rodent Inspection

Why You Need Rodent Inspection

If you think you have a rodent infestation, your best option for dealing with it is our 4-step rodent control process. The first step in this process is a professional rodent inspection. At Eastside Exterminators, our rodent inspection promises a top-to-bottom assessment of your home or business. Our highly-specialized rodent inspectors will go through every nook and cranny to identify where rats and mice are getting in. This includes crawl spaces, attics, roof tops, attached garages, basements, under attached decks, and the entire exterior perimeter. And if there is evidence of rats and mice in interior living spaces, we will inspect those as well.


Signs of a Rodent Infestation

They understand how rodents behave, what they’re capable of, and therefore how they move through homes and businesses. This is what allows our inspectors to uncover hidden areas where rats and mice nest. With that said, there are a number of things that indicate a rodent infestation which you may pick up on:

  • Rodent droppings in places like closets.
  • Scratching or squeaking noises coming from walls, ceilings, floors or elsewhere.
  • Gnaw marks on items like cardboard boxes, packaged food, stored items, and bins.
  • Foot prints on dusty surfaces (you will need a bright light source).
  • Unusual smells emanating from hidden areas of your structure.

If you see, smell or hear any of these signs, whether new or old, you should schedule a rodent inspection. Eastside Exterminators rodent inspections are always performed by a licensed pest control operator, so you get the best service possible.


What You Get Out of the Rodent Inspection Process

During the inspection, trapping systems will be installed in all infested areas. Following the inspection, your inspector will provide you with a digital rodent exclusion report which they will thoroughly explain. The report details how Eastside Exterminators can repair all the entry points your inspector identified. To that end, it includes a detailed map of the structure indicating all rodent entry points. It also includes digital photos and/or videos of infested areas such as attics and crawlspaces. We provide these aids so you can understand the work required, and see exactly where and what repairs are needed.

Additionally, your rodent inspector will provide a detailed sanitation report on damage to your insulation, heat ducts, and vapor barrier. On top of that, they will answer any questions you have, and schedule rodent exclusion, which is the next step in our process.
