Ventura Rodent Control
Rodent Removal in Santa Barbara & Los Angeles Counties
Have you heard sounds of scratching and scurrying feet in the middle of the night, or have noticed that your boxes of breakfast cereal have little holes chewed in the corners? If this is true, you likely are suffering from every homeowner’s fear and dread: an infestation of rodents.
Although some may find little critters like mice and chipmunks to be on the cute side, wild rodents are a serious problem. Even if cartoons portray these creatures as humorous, the truth is that rodents wreak havoc wherever they go.
Not only will rats, mice, squirrels, and other rodents leave a giant mess, but they can cause dangerous fires by gnawing your wires. Without rapid Ventura rodent control, you and your family are susceptible to catching dangerous diseases spread by rodents and their fleas. Time is of the essence, so reach out to Cal Termite & Pest Control to immediately stop these pests in their tracks.
Signs You May Have a Rodent Problem
You may only see a mouse or rat in your home if your infestation is severe. There are other signs that will indicate a rodent infestation.
The signs of a rodent infestation are:
Rodent droppings around your house in locations such as, in drawers or cupboards, around food packages, and under the sink.
Signs of chewing and teeth marks on food packaging.
Holes chewed through walls or floors.
Stale odors that are coming from secluded areas.
Finding piles of nesting material, such as shredded paper, fabric, plants, and more.
Types of Diseases Carried by Rats & Mice
One of the most terrible attributes of rodents is that they are not only destructive and unsanitary, but they carry a wide variety of horrible diseases, some of which are even fatal to humans.
Some of the dangerous illnesses caused by rats and mice include:
- Viral hemorrhagic fever
- Q fever
- Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome
- Coxiella burnetii
- Rat bite fever
- Weil’s disease
- Lymphocytic choriomeningitis
- Bubonic plague
- Murine typhus
It is critical to get a rodent infestation under control before it gets too big. In order to determine if there is a growing invasion of rats, look carefully to find signs of tooth marks on food containers or evidence that rats are building a nest. Any suspicious brown pellets are a sure sign that you have a rodent problem on your hands.

Before we can exterminate all the rodents from your property, our experienced professionals will start with a thorough inspection of your home. Rats and mice are extremely good at hiding out, so it is critical to find the hotspots to target with our traps.
Nest materials, marks of clawing and gnawing, and small brown droppings are the first clues that rodents are lurking nearby. After our examination, we will determine the most opportune locations of where to set traps as well as glue boards, self-resetting live traps, and bait stations.
