Get Rid Of Rodents With Help From All-Safe Pest & Termite
Having uninvited rodents in your home is a bad thing. Most people are a bit scared of these furry creatures and are disturbed to find their droppings laying around their house. But fear and disgust are the least of your worries when it comes to a rodent infestation. When rodents get into your house, they introduce your family to diseases and parasites and can destroy your home and belongings. At All-Safe, we offer effective rodent services that will eliminate your rodent problem.
How We Rid Your Dallas-Fort Worth Property Of Rodents
When your technician arrives, they will complete a thorough inspection of your property for any signs of rodent activity that could indicate an infestation. This includes gnaw marks, rub marks, droppings, and live or dead rodents. We will then look for possible entry points rodents could be using to get inside as well as for conducive conditions that could be attracting rodents, such as firewood on the property, sheds in poor conditions, etc.
All-Safe Pest & Termite provides our rodent control services to both residential and commercial properties. During your initial service visit, we will install rodent traps in the attic and garage spaces. If necessary, we will also place bait traps around the exterior of your building.
On the exterior, we will place a bait station, usually near an air conditioning unit or where the rodent activity is located. If we detect any small entry points on the ground level during the inspection, we will seal them with copper mesh, caulk, and/or metal flashing. In some cases, we use hardware cloth to seal the holes.
One week after your initial service visit, we will return once a week until we are certain that the entire rodent population in your home is eliminated or excluded. During these return visits, we will check all the traps present, removing any rodents and resetting traps as necessary. After this visit, we will return when you notify us that a trap has been set off. Trap servicing is part of our rodent control service. Although we do not offer sanitation services, we can offer expert recommendations on how to prevent future rodent infestations.
Why Professional Treatment Is A Necessity For Rodents
Rodents are among the most destructive pests threatening Texas property owners. In homes, they gnaw on any surfaces they come across, contaminate food, leave smear marks on walls and baseboards, leave droppings and urine wherever they nest, and generally cause a nuisance to everyone in the home. They bring all the same problems to businesses, in addition to destroying inventory, putting customers and employees at risk, and putting your reputation at stake.
Making matters worse, rodents are an extremely difficult problem to completely eradicate. The ability to fully eliminate a rodent infestation requires specific knowledge of where they’re operating and how best to target them. Otherwise, you may catch some rodents with traps and DIY methods, but the infestation itself will continue to go on.
At All-Safe Pest & Termite, we have a long history of keeping homes and businesses across the greater Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for over 30 years. Using the latest tools and techniques developed in the field, we specialize in creating lasting solutions for property owners that not only eliminate rodents in the present but also prevent them in the future.

Rodent Frequently Asked Questions
Do rodents carry diseases?
Rodents do carry diseases, and they can spread them to humans through their feces, urine, saliva, and bites. Furthermore, if they bring parasites inside, such as ticks or mites, the parasites can also spread illnesses to humans. Some of the diseases rodents are known to transmit include rat-bite fever, hantavirus, salmonellosis, tularemia, and more.
What is the difference between mice and rats?
Fully grown rats are bigger than mice, but a rat that is still developing can easily be mistaken for a mouse. A couple of other differences between the two are that mice have pointier noses, while rat's noses are blunter, and mice usually have long, hairy tails while rats have long, bare tails. Unfortunately, if you see a rodent scurry across your kitchen, you probably won’t be able to look closely enough to determine whether you have mice or rats in your home.
Where do rats and mice nest?
In the DFW area, roof rats and mice are the most common home and business invaders. Both of these rodents like to nest in attics, but that’s not the only place you’ll find them. Mice especially will nest in a variety of areas, but typically choose secluded spots that have access to nest-building materials, and are close to a steady food source.
