Exterior Rodent Control

Boston's Ultimate Rodent Control Solution

When you think of unwanted guests in your home, rodents might come to mind. Their stealthy maneuvers and unannounced appearances in corners of our homes are all too familiar. What's more, their presence in homes and businesses around Eastern Massachusetts, especially in Boston, has grown significantly over the years. And while the term "commensal" might make them sound somewhat friendly, there's nothing amiable about these creatures. Originating from the Latin term meaning "to share one's table," the irony isn't lost on many homeowners and business operators. Imagine sharing your meal with an uninvited mouse or rat! Not exactly the dinner party you had in mind. Beyond the immediate shock and unease they cause, there's a deeper concern. 

Rodent control in the Boston area is critical, but not just for eliminating a nuisance. Controlling rodents also ensures health, safety, and peace of mind. Considering the potential health risks they bring and the structural damage they can cause, their small size belies the significant problems they represent. And this is precisely where our Boston rodent control services at General Environmental Services come in, turning your rodent worries into a thing of the past.

The Rodent Control Process: More Than Meets The Eye

Rodents come in various sizes and forms, and while you might only consider mice and rats when thinking about rodent pest control, there's a broader spectrum to it. Rodents are animals whose teeth never stop growing, and they make up a whopping 40% of all mammals. So, whether it's a squirrel scurrying in your backyard or a chipmunk playing hide and seek, these creatures can cause chaos.

Unfortunately, rodents don't just cause a mess; they're also a significant hazard. They can:

  • Damage your property, nibbling away at building materials and electrical wiring
  • Carry and transmit over 35 diseases to humans
  • Introduce fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes that further spread illnesses

It's not just about wanting to get rid of rodents; it's about the need to do so for safety and health reasons.

How do we, at General Environmental Services make a difference? With expertise rooted in practice since 1979, our team identifies key areas where these common rodents thrive. Recognizing their nesting zones and feeding territories gives us a clear picture of the infestation level. Every rodent problem is unique, and based on our findings, we design a customized solution targeting the root cause. This might involve traps for immediate removal, bait systems, or carefully chosen treatments when the situation demands.

But here’s where we truly shine. Our responsibility doesn’t end with the removal of these pests. A critical part of our process is the post-removal cleanup, ensuring every trace of their presence, including droppings and nesting remnants, is gone. This not only ensures a hygienic environment but also reduces the chances of a recurrent infestation. 

Simply put, when you're up against a rodent problem, we're the experts who don't just scratch the surface. We dive deep to ensure the entire infestation is eliminated.

We strive to restore the sanctity of your space. With our honest service and experience that matters, we stand by our promise to make your environment rodent-free.

Remember, rodents aren't just pests. They're carriers of diseases, sources of property damage, and significant disturbances to your everyday life. While their tiny feet and curious nature might seem less threatening, their potential to wreak havoc is immense. And while some might believe they can handle these nuisances on their own, the reality is that professional intervention is often necessary. Why? Because rodents are crafty. They evolve, learn, and adapt. What worked once might not work again, making DIY methods less effective in the long run.
