Mice & Rats Removal & Exclusion Services

Mice & Rats Removal & Exclusion Services

Mice and rats are among the most common pests encountered in both residential and commercial settings. These rodents not only cause structural damage by gnawing through walls, wires, and insulation but also pose serious health risks by spreading diseases like hantavirus and contaminating food supplies.

Their ability to squeeze through tiny openings makes it particularly challenging to keep them out of your property. Once inside, they can rapidly reproduce, making a small problem a full-blown infestation in no time.

Rusty’s Animal Control (RAC) specializes in effective and humane mice and rat exclusion services, ensuring your property is protected from these unwelcome guests.

Key Concerns

  • Disease Transmission: mice and rats can carry diseases such as hantavirus, primarily through their feces and urine
  • Structural Damage: while not as damaging as larger rodents, mice and rats can still gnaw on structures and wires, posing fire risks and property damage
  • Food Contamination: especially in food processing facilities, the presence of these rodents can lead to significant health hazards and potential business interruptions

Best Practices for Prevention

Humane Trapping

Humane Trapping

Snap traps and T-rex traps are recommended for their effectiveness and humaneness. Glue traps and bucket traps are discouraged.



Sealing entry points can prevent rodents from entering. Maintaining cleanliness and minimizing clutter can also deter these pests.

Food Storage

Food Storage

Keeping food in airtight containers and managing waste properly can reduce the attraction for these rodents.

Common Misconceptions

  • Bucket Traps: Some believe bucket traps are an effective and humane solution, but they are actually inhumane and do not address the underlying problem of preventing reinfestation.
