All About Rodents
People often ask, what is covered under the term rodent? While there is a variety of different species of rodents, the main ones that you will find hiding in your home or business are mice and rats, but occasionally rodents like squirrels, chipmunks, or even gophers can make their way into your house. It all depends on where you live and what type of weather you typically have.
For the most part, the rodents that you are likely to find here in the Greater Richmond and Charlottesville Virginia areas will be mice and rats with the occasional squirrel. Rodents are typically small to medium size, and they are social creatures.
Because they reproduce quickly, there will often be more than one hiding in your walls or ceilings. Rodents usually become more of a problem during the colder months because it is harder to find food and shelter.
Most often, our habits are what attract rodents into our homes. Things like open boxes of foods or crumbs that don’t get cleaned up will bring mice and rats running. They will also make their nests out of things that we leave out like paper, cardboard, and clothing.
Problems Caused by Rats in Your Home
Rodents can really be a terror to your property. They damage your home, leave droppings all over your house, and may possibly expose your family to diseases. One thing to note as well is that their population can quickly mushroom to an astronomical amount if you don’t put strategies in place to deal with their presence. When rats begin to pop up in your home, you should begin to consider a rat control service.
Taming a rat infestation is a time-sensitive operation. This means that you have to have your eyes open to signs of a rat infestation. The most typical sign of a rat infestation is rat feces. These are normally found along rats’ food hunting paths. One rat is able to produce up to 40 droppings per day, although this depends largely on their eating patterns. The droppings are usually dark brown with rounded tips, about 10mm long.
As nocturnal creatures, most of the movements of the rat population will take place in the evening. This will result in sounds of scratching, gnawing or scurrying inside your walls, attic or basement. If you suspect that you have a growing rodent population, listen for their movements in the evenings.
The gnawing and chewing of rats are also signs to look out for. A rodent’s teeth are always growing and are always in need of trimming. They do this trimming by biting on your electrical wires or furniture, leaving behind marks and sometimes serious damage.
If you pick up on any of these signs, don’t hesitate to contact us! The earlier the problem is detected, the easier it will be for you to fix. Give us a call, and we will work to fix any rodent problems in your house, as well as prevent them in the future.

All About Rats
Many people think that rats are just like mice only bigger, but they are their own unique species of rodent. While rats and mice belong to the same family, rats are part of a different genus that separates them from mice.
There are two types of rats common to in the Greater Richmond, Henrico and Charlottesville Virginia areas – the Norway rat and the Roof rat. These rats are usually found around people. They live off our food and any food waste we leave around as well as make their nests in our homes and businesses.
Rats are social creatures and often will work together with each other. They are also highly intelligent animals and will learn and adapt to changes to their environment.
For this reason, rats are also used often in scientific research. Like most rodents, they reproduce often and quickly, so what might start off as just a few rats can quickly turn into a serious rat infestation.

Rats are also a very invasive species. Once they move into an area, they will quickly take over by eating your food, stealing things like various fabrics to make their nests, and in general just being a nuisance. Because they are omnivores, they can survive in many different environments and will eat anything they can get into.
Here in the Greater Richmond, Midlothian, Henrico and Charlottesville Virginia areas, there are specific regulations that must be met when getting rid of rats and their nests.

Rat Control Pricing FAQs
How much will rat control service cost?
The cost is dependent on how big your property is and the intensity of the rat infestation (to the extent to which they have damaged your property). Depending on these factors, the average cost ranges from $100 to $500. Remember that in severe cases, you may end up spending a lot more than $500 to control the rodent population on your property. So as soon as you detect signs of rodents in your home, call us right away!
What can I expect in the $100 to $300 bracket?
In this price bracket, services will be effective for light infestations. These usually feature about two visits from us. The initial visit will be an inspection along with trap setting. After about two or three days, we will do a follow-up visit to clear previously set traps and remove caught and killed rodents.
What can I expect in the $400 to $500 bracket?
This price bracket is where we will provide services that are geared towards a more severe case of rat infestation. (The size of your property may also lead your quote to fall in this price range.) In this price bracket, we will typically visit your property up to four times. These visits will include inspection, trap setting, clearing of rats and eliminating entry opportunities for rats in the future.
What can I expect for $1,000 or more?
In critical cases, you will end up requiring a more complex rat control service in treating the rat population that you are faced with. Large properties tend to end up in this category, as they have a greater area for rats to populate and hide. In this case, we will be visiting your property multiple times. We will be setting up traps, applying appropriate chemicals, running a number of rat clearing operations, and implementing strategies to prevent future infestations.
