You might think rodents are only a problem for hotels, food processing facilities, apartment buildings, and other commercial facilities but here at Prosite Pest Control, we also receive many calls from homeowners worried about rodents.

If you think you’ve found rodents or signs of a rodent infestation in your home or business, take action right away. At Prosite Pest Control, we offer comprehensive rodent control solutions that start off with a thorough inspection!
Our Rodent Control Process
In order to successfully eliminate mice, rats, and other household invading rodents from homes and businesses and keep them out, we use our extensive knowledge of rodents, the tools of our trade, and a comprehensive process that ensures successful rodent removal and prevention. Our expert rodent control process includes:
Our first step towards rodent removal is to perform a thorough inspection of the structure and property to identify if rodent activity is present, what type of rodent is infesting, and to assess the severity of the infestation. We’ll inspect areas where rodents are prone to infest including under or behind appliances and in basements, attics, dumpsters, cafeterias, etc. We’ll also determine how those rodents are getting inside and what conditions are encouraging them to invade your property. Based on our assessment, we’ll provide you a quote that includes the removal of rodents and exclusion services, if needed.
Rodent Control Treatments
Once we’ve determined the scope of the issue, we’ll develop and then implement a customized rodent control plan that addresses the existing rodent population. Discreetly placed mechanical devices such as rodent traps will be used to bring the number of mice or rats down to zero. Based on your situation, we may also install exterior rodent stations around the perimeter for monitoring and baiting.
Unfortunately, if you can fit the end of a #2 pencil in a hole, a mouse can squeeze through. While larger, some rats can enter through holes the size of a quarter. If all potential entry points are not identified and corrected, rodents will keep coming in. As part of a comprehensive rodent control plan, we will seal any holes that would allow rodents to enter.
On-Going Rodent Control Services
To ensure the success of the treatment plan, we’ll provide follow up service(s). Every rodent infestation is different (you may have a couple of rats or a full-blown infestation), we’ll communicate what your monitoring program will entail at the time of service.
An effective rodent control program may include ongoing service which is why Prosite Pest Control offers ongoing rodent control services for both homes and businesses. In fact, if you’re a homeowner who often finds yourself battling mice and/or rats, we offer home pest control plans that target general household pests AND rodents.
Frequently Asked Questions About Rodents
What mice and rats commonly infest homes and businesses in our area?
In Yakima and Kittitas counties and throughout Central Washington, the roof rat, white-footed mouse, and deer mouse are the most common types of rodents. Visit our rodent pest identification to learn more about these pests.
How do I tell the difference between mice and rats?
From head to tail mice are smaller than rats by several inches. Mice also have smaller droppings (6 mm vs 12 mm) and gnaw marks (2 mm vs 4 mm) than rats. Mice have larger ears and pointy or triangular noises whereas rats have small ears and blunt noses. Both have long tails but mice have thin, hairy tails. Rats, on the other hand, have thick, scaly tails that are devoid of hair.
Can I get sick from rodents?
Yes. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), rodents have the potential to directly transmit several diseases including Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS), Leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, and salmonellosis. They also introduce ticks, mites, and fleas onto properties. While Washington has very few reported cases of Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases, the link between rodents and ticks should be noted.
I have hantavirus, did rats give that to me?
In our region, rats are not normally the carriers of hantavirus. Unfortunately, white-foot and deer mice are and we have those in abundance.
I have rodents in my house, how much is it going to cost?
The cost of rodent control depends on several factors including the type of rodent that you're dealing with, the severity of the infestation, the size of the structure, and if exclusion services are necessary to resolve the problem. When you reach out to us at Prosite Pest Control, we’ll provide a onsite inspection. Once we’ve assessed the situation, we’ll communicate our findings and recommendations, and of course, provide you with a quote for treatment.
