Downey Rodent Control

Mice and rats have lived side by side with humans for thousands of years, however, that doesn’t mean you should tolerate an infestation. Rodents spread deadly diseases with their droppings and can cost you thousands in damage if left untreated. Mice and rats love to use insulation as nesting material and will chew through wires, dry wall, and ventilation systems very quickly to keep their young fed. Rodents are prolific breeders due to their short gestational period and large litters. A colony of rodents can easily form in just a few short weeks. This is why it is so important to remove rats and mice as soon as you see evidence of an infestation.

Our rodent services begin with one of our expert technicians inspecting your home or business for the source of the infestation. From there, we will use a combination of rodenticides and traps to remove the colony. We also recommend exclusion work to keep the rodents from returning. Learn more about our rodent services.

Downey Termite Treatments

Termites cause over $11 billion in damage each year in the United States. If left untreated, these pests can compromise the safety of a structure and require extensive repair work to your home or business.

In Downey, there are two types of termites that cause the most damage. The first is the drywood termite. This termite usually swarms during the spring and fall, however, with ideal weather conditions they can be a problem year round. These termites infest wood sources like eaves, attics, walls and decks. The second most common termite is the subterranean termite. This termite tunnels in mud tubes toward structures buried in soil. They weaken foundations and in some cases, structural framing.
