How Orkin® Rodent Control Works

Step 1


Exclusion and sealing off sites that allow mice to enter a structure. Your PMP will seal openings greater than ¼-inch using screen, flashing, door sweeps, heavy-duty sealants and other exclusion materials. Keeping mice out of the structure is not always a simple project; however, exclusion is the single, best long-term way to deal with mice problems.

Step 2


Your PMP may elect to use chemical products, such as rodent baits, that are formulated to kill mice. While baits are very effective, caution must be exercised to ensure that baits are properly placed and the instructions on the product’s label are strictly followed. One of the more common techniques for bait use is to place the bait formulation in a tamper proof rodent bait station that protects the bait from accidental exposure to non-target animals or people.

Thorough Investigation

Rats are capable of thriving in human environments, and our technicians will seek out and identify where they're making themselves at home.

Mice and Rats Treatment Plan

After the assessment, the technician will recommend a customized rodent treatment plan that will best fit your needs depending on the infestation.

Fortifying Against Rats and Mice

Technicians will stop the infestation by using rodenticide baits, natural repellants, and traps to help fortify your home against their return.

Rodent Control

Orkin people who come to my house to check traps and search for additional problems, are very professional and informative. We are having a rodent problem, which we have never had before. We believe that it may be due to new neighbors, who have chickens. Because of the Cvirus problem, the Orkin professionals wear masks and gloves. They come on time for appointments and suggest that the dog door may be part of the problem. – Ann S.
