Rats and Mice

Rats and mice are great hiders. In garages, keep storage items neatly arranged and uncluttered. They will have less access to burrough and thrive in a well maintained environment. Rats and mice have even been known to damage vehicles, where they can crawl up into engine and chew wires and fan belts, sneak in through vents destroy your interior. Part of IPM includes an initial inspection. If we see evidence of infestation, and holes and cracks in your walls or foundation, we will proceed to the next step in IPM, being “exclusion,” or building the pests out of your home. We will seal all cracks and holes leading into the home. Windows and doors should also fit tightly. With access to food, water and shelter, rat and mice population can quickly increase. The safest and most effective solution to an infestation is to set traps. We will use EPA approved traps in locations determined best by the pest control professional at EcoTone

Gophers

The most common sign of a gopher infestation are mounds of dirt. They are often found burrowing in gardens, yards, and fields. Gophers eat the roots of plants and will cause considerable and expensive damage to ornamental and vegetable gardens. Their digging causes erosion, which is unsightly and a dangerous. In public places like schools and parks, the erosion caused by a gopher infestation is a major liability. We usually use traps or fumigant to expel the gophers. We don't typically use baits, as the gophers often get the attention of household pets, who can dig and accidentally be exposed to the bait.
