Southern California Rodent Control

Rodent Control is a serious matter, we often forget just how many diseases and damage they cause in such a short amount of time. Not only do rodents chew through your home to get in your home, they chew things just to chew. They will bite through the wiring of your home. Many fires per year stem from rodents eating the insulation of the wires exposing them to the insulation of the wall void. They will create as many entry points as they can giving themselves access to other areas of your home.

Rodent trapping alone cannot control a rodent infestation. 22 years doing rat exterminating has allowed Kilter to create a system. We not only trap the rats but seal all the holes in the building that they have created. Rats and mice are both capable of entering holes as small as 1/4 of an inch. Our system does not initially involve any rodenticide in fear that your children or pets will come in contact with the material. We care about your family and pets. We want your home to be rodent, whether mice or rats, free.

You deserve the best! Call (866) 827-1727.

Introducing Rodex™

Comprehensive Rodent Extermination Services in Your Area

Typically pest control companies have focused on trapping the existing infestation and then sealing the current access points for rodents. This type of treatment normally carries a warranty of up to 90 days, and rodents will often return within one year. The strong pheromone rodents leave behind in their urine will act like a magnet, eventually drawing the rodents back and create yet another infestation.

Kilter’s Exclusive Rodex System can eliminate this re-entry pattern. Our Seven-Step System is thorough and effective, and will ensure you the best protection against future rodent infestations. Kilter professionals will go over the Rodex System with you, make recommendations based upon their thorough inspection, and answer any questions you may have.

Initial Rodent Infestation Inspection Process

Kilter professionals will complete a thorough inspection of the property to locate entry points and infestation areas. The diagram on the previous page shows just some of the many entry points our licensed inspectors focus on to locate points of access for rodents.

Ensuring Clean Access for Safe Extermination

Prior to performing work, Kilter professionals will apply foot covers and create a “clean room entry point” to the attic.

Sanitization Steps for Rodent Control

Kilter professionals will sanitize all previously infested areas and attic spaces to prepare the insulation to be removed. Rodent droppings can flake and become airborne, potentially circulating contaminated air through your central heating and air conditioning systems.

Professional Insulation Removal and Safety

For blown insulation, Kilter professionals will use a high horsepower insulation removal tool to keep the dangers of inhalation of toxins from putting your family and our construction crews at risk.  

Effective Rodent Exclusion Techniques

Kilter professionals will call on their 30+ years of industry education and experience in the construction industry to make your home a rodent free zone. The expertise of our technicians will allow them to see possible re-entry areas that ordinary pest control agencies may not see. All materials used in sealing off possible entry points are construction grade and specifically chosen to return your home to its original pre infestation conditions.

Strategic Rodent Trapping and Removal

Rodents are occasionally trapped within the structure once all the entry points have been sealed off. Kilter professionals will leave traps behind and check them routinely until all rodents have been eliminated. Typically the rodents have become frightened during our construction process and one or two have been left behind needing removal. These remaining rodents, having been separated from the pack, are usually easily caught within a few days but our technicians will monitor your home to ensure that no rodents have been left behind.

Final Sanitation and Reconstruction Services

A final sanitation is performed prior to reconstruction. This sanitation process removes any odors associated with infestation that rodents use to find safety or a breeding mate.

How Rodents Invade Your Home

They use these holes to enter and exit your home, like it was their home. Rats and mice can climb brick, other rough surfaces, inside and outside pipes and walk on wires. Rodents can drop 50 feet without being seriously injured. They are able jump vertically 36 inches and 48 inches horizontally. Norway rats can burrow vertically into the earth to a depth of 4 feet. Most people do not realize that rodents can swim a mile in open water. They can enter plumbing traps, swim in sewer lines, and swim against substantial currents. Mice are not as good with water as rats but can manage. The teeth of the rat makes the homeowner and exterminator cringe. They grow 4 to 5 inches a year and can prevent their eating if they do not gnaw them down. They are constantly chewing to get their teeth to the “proper length” (each rodent probably has their favorite length of teeth , like we have preferable hairstyles HA.) Interesting enough they are able to chew through lead sheeting, aluminum, adobe brick and even concrete! Diseases are transferred and transmitted several different ways some as gross as the rodent “biting” you or your loved ones, others as simple as the rodents fleas ticks or mites that used to live on the rats. They contaminate the food and water of your home with their feces and urine. One of the most dangerous situations for rat exterminators is the insulation of attics that has severe urination as the Hantavirus is contracted this way. 

Exterminators everywhere when they open the attic door cringe inside when the smell hits them. No matter how many times you smell it, its still as terrible as the first time. This foul dangerous odor gets into the air conditioning and creeps through the vents pouring this harmful smell into areas of your home.

Rats and mice are both capable of entering holes as small as 1/4 of an inch. Our system does not initially involve any rodenticide in fear that your children or pets will come in contact with the material. We care about your family and pets. We want your home to be rodent free, whether that be mice or rats. Contact us today!

  • Why Quarterly service instead of Monthly or Bi-Monthly?

    Our pest control chemicals and the barrier our technicians create generally last for 90-120 days.  Monthly or every other month service is normally overkill.  No need to spray extra chemicals around your home and pay for extra serivce if it’s not needed plus our Quarterly service plan comes with free services calls in-between visits so if you need us earlier then expected, just call us and we will come treat for no charge?

  • How does the Quarterly plan work?

    On your first visit we will treat the interior and exterior of your home, eliminating most pests you have in and around your home. During that initial visit we also create a barrier around your home. This will allow the treatment to work on all the pests trapped inside the barrier and stop any new pests from getting in.  After that initial visit we will come out quarterly to maintain the barrier around your home. We normally only need to treat the interior once per year and the exterior barrier every 3 months. You may see an uptick in activity the first few days after each treatment as the pests try to get away but after a week you should be pest free.  If you need us, call us as our service calls are free.
