Effective Rodent Control Services in Kelowna, Penticton & Vernon 

Rodents in your home or business can pose serious health concerns. Rats and mice carry parasites like ticks and fleas which can introduce disease. Rodents can squeeze into even the tiniest crevices, making it hard to block every possible entry point. They are rapid breeders, and by the time you see one mouse, you are likely to have many more in your attic, wall cavities and other hidden areas of your home or commercial building. Call The Bugman Pest Control, your local rodent control specialist in Kelowna, Penticton & Vernon.

The Rodents Wreaking the Most Havoc in the Okanagan

There are five species of rats and mice that are the most common target of rodent control services in the Okanagan region:

  • House mouse

    These have a pointed nose and are relatively small in size, weighing only 30 g. They tend to hide in closed spaces.

  • Field mouse/vole

    These are about 4 inches long, with grey-brown fur. They are inclined to be attracted to grassy areas that are moist.

  • Deer mouse

    They are also found in woody, forested areas as they survive on plant and animal matter. An adult deer mouse can go up to 10 cm long, and their white underbelly often gives them away.

  • Black rat/roof rat

    These happen to find their home in our ceilings and attics. With the tail being longer than their body and their darker fur, they become easy to identify. Their pointed droppings are another clue.

  • Norway rat

    These are the largest amongst all, weighing at around a pound. They have a blunt nose and small ears and are usually found in burrows surrounding your premises.

How Do You Identify a Rodent Infestation?

Pest encroachment in your personal space is always unwelcome, but rats are a large threat due to the fact that they can multiply rapidly. Here are some clues from our rodent control experts that will help you identify whether your property has a rodent infestation:

  • The biggest clue to a rat infestation is their droppings. They can leave as many as 180 in a day for you to clean up.
  • Rats have a tendency of gnawing on things - paper, wood, wires and even mortar. Some of our clients have even found gnaw marks on their metal objects. This is another clue.
  • Next is to hear sounds. Rats often hide in vents and walls. If you hear feet tapping in your vents, you likely have rats in your home.
  • Lastly, rats always follow a path they have taken. Finding a worn-out path in your lawn is another indication.

All rodents need food, water and shelter, so once we identify and eliminate these, we can control your pest problem. Traditional traps and bait may help, but rodents’ instincts usually make them wary of such things.
