Poway Rodent Control

Rats and mice are very similar to cockroaches in that when you see one, there are probably more in areas you can’t see. Like cockroaches, rodents contaminate food products and food preparation areas with their feces and urine. A sure sign of a rodent infestation are the droppings they leave behind. Rat feces is generally the size of a grain of rice, while mice leave smaller droppings, similar to the size of pencil lead. Rodents are prolific breeders, with short gestational periods and large litters. Once they find a safe place to breed, a colony of rodents is quickly established. Mice and rats spread diseases in their droppings and bring other unwanted pests like fleas and mites to your Poway home. They also cause thousands of dollars in damage to homes by nesting in insulation and ventilation systems, as well as chewing on wires, pipes and roofing materials. This is why it is very important to call us as soon as you spot them or their droppings.

Griffin Pest Management technicians will start a rodent service by inspecting your home for the source of the infestation. We’ll customize a plan of action to remove rodents using rodenticides and traps. After the rodents have been removed from the building, we’ll point out their entry points and provide exclusion work to keep future rodents from returning.

Poway Termite Treatments

Poway is home to two very destructive types of termites. The most common termite found in Poway is the drywood termite. This termite is known to swarm in the spring and fall, however, with ideal weather conditions year round in San Diego county, this termite is a problem throughout the year. Drywood termites weaken walls, attic spaces, eaves, and decks. The second is the subterranean termite, which burrows beneath the soil creating mud tubes into your foundation and other buried wood sources causing structural damage.

Unfortunately, homeowners insurance does not cover damage caused by termites. Since termites cause over $11 billion in damage each year in the United States, it is very important to protect your investment before they take control.
