My children mean the world to me, but as most parents know, children can oftentimes some inventive imaginations when they are younger. So, when my youngest informed me that we had a rodent visitor in our home about a week ago I thought nothing of it. After all, I keep a tight and clean ship in my home so there was no way that a crawling rodent would have gotten out of my eyesight.
However, to my horror I saw the creepy rodent she was referring to one afternoon. I was in the kitchen cleaning up the dishes from the dinner and I suddenly heard a rustling behind me. There it was, the rodent that my child was speaking about. I nearly dropped the dish that I had in my hand. When I made a sudden startled movement the rodent disappeared from sight rapidly.
This is when I decided that I needed some professional assistance, however, I did not want the rodent to be killed. I decided to contact Pest Control Orange County and see what my options were in regards to these terms.
Searching For a Rat Exterminator
I looked up the various pest control companies that were in the Orange County area and was actually very surprised that there were so many to choose from. Again, because I had very specific terms that I wanted in terms of the pest control services, I needed to make sure that I found a business that I was comfortable in working with.
My children were adamant about not hurting the rodent and I couldn’t imagine hurting them by having someone come out to exterminate the issue. The rodent looked very scared and I can imagine just wanted to be set free.

They also offered me a free initial consultation appointment where I could speak with the professional who would be servicing my home, ask further questions, and feel comfortable with the services that would be performed. They had sent out a man by the name of Mo who was very polite and knowledgeable, while he couldn’t guarantee no kill, he offered less lethal methods that would have a better shot at the rodent being kept alive.
