Rodent Pest Control and Exterminator Services

Have rodents made your space their home? Have they done damage to your property? You can reclaim your space with our 3 visit rodent control service.

We help residential clients in the San Francisco Bay Area get rid of mice and rats and prevent re-infestations through source reduction, trapping and exclusion.

Certified as 100% Integrated Pest Management (IPM) through EcoWise and Green Shield.

By not using rodent poisons for control or using them as a last resort, we are able to reduce the potential for secondary poisoning of non-targets. For more information on secondary poisoning and the risks to predators visit the Hungry Owl Project.

  • Rodent droppings, urine stains and rub marks
  • Gnaw marks on wires, food packages, wood and other parts of the structure
  • Nesting material like paper, cotton, or other fabrics
