OUR 3-STEP RODENT CONTROL PROCESS
For effective rodent control, Versa-Tech offers free rodent inspections to determine rodent activity and to track points of entry.
2. RODENT EXCLUSION, TRAPPING & REMOVAL
Regardless if Rats or Mice are the issue, the same basic service principals apply to both… stop the activity from entering, remove any activity inside, follow up to assure the service is successful and make any needed corrections to control the Rodent activity moving forward.
3. RODENT REMEDIATION & RESTORATION SERVICES
Rodent damage is also a factor in the service. If rats or mice have been active in an area for any length of time, they can soil surfaces and make areas unhealthy. Rodents have about four litters per year so addressing any rodent issue at the first signs or thoughts of activity is essential to aiding in the service.
Our remediation services can also include disinfecting, attic clean out and restoration home services including replacing insulation.
To Note: Rodent Service can be as simple as adding exterior bait stations, to full Rodent Trapping & Exclusion Service, Rodent Clean Up & Remediation Service, including replacing insulation as needed, or a combination of services. Many variables go into any rodent service, such as type of rodent, areas of activity, length of activity, any needed exclusion or seal up work, and areas needed to be accessed and so on.
ABOUT RODENT TRAPPING, EXTERIOR BAIT STATIONS & REMOVAL
Rodents seek opportunities to enter structures. Exterior bait stations are placed along structure perimeter areas to control rodent activity outside. Bait Stations are great tools to gauge rodent activity levels, can be adjusted to serve changing structure or area needs, added or removed, and are pet & kid resistant. Rodents enter a bait station and consume the bait. Ideally, they return to their residence and expire. For locations where pets or non-target animals are a concern, we can use a bait called Terad3 Blox that greatly reduces risk of secondary poisoning to non-target animals. Trap Stations control interior perimeter areas such as garage, corridor, warehouse, kitchen & storage areas. They are locked boxes that have either a rodent mechanical trap or glue trap inside, helping monitor, capture, & control interior rodent movements & activity. Both Exterior Bait Stations & Interior Rodent Trap Stations need maintained regularly, at least quarterly. Frequency depends on some variables and can be adjusted. Both can be used in conjunction with any rodent service.
About Rodent Exclusion & Harbor-age
If rodents have gained access to a structure, a Rodent Exclusion and Trapping Service is likely warranted. This includes Attics, Crawl Spaces, Drop Ceiling areas, basements, roof areas, almost any structure we can seal up and remove rodents from, or control. T-Rex traps are set inside service areas either using zip ties (attached to utility lines) or screws (attached to any wood surface). No traps are just ‘placed’ inside. We install traps along the most identifiable rodent pathways. We can tell this by identifying the rodents rub marks, track marks and droppings. This service will stop the current activity from entering the service areas and future activity from getting in. We will be assessing and servicing rodent entry points from both interior and exterior areas, we go foot by foot along the perimeter and other areas to seal and identify possible rodent entry points.
Being a ‘detective’ is a big part of this service. Exterior areas are assessed for any harbor-age or other issues that will attract rats to the structure, such as trees and other vegetation overgrowth or poor storage practices. Last is the roof. We inspect the roof and roof vents for entry points. For Spanish and other clay tiles, this is very important.
We exclude all possible entry points leading from the roof into structure areas. Follow ups are next and are key to assuring all the exclusion is looking and functioning great. Follow ups also assess the activity and remove captures. The follow ups are what confirms the job was done correctly. A typical service will require a minimum of three follow ups. Structure limitations such as vaulted ceilings may require more follow ups. Final follow ups are set further out, three to five weeks, to assure no further signs of activity, or as scope of service dictates. If we keep capturing rodents, and/or you are still hearing or seeing evidence, then we will keep following up until it is done right…no additional cost. Some jobs take more time than others, some variables are tough to overcome. Large Commercial Services may vary. We will use all our resources and get the job done. Rodents can enter a hole about the size of a quarter and larger. Mice can enter smaller spots, cracks and gaps. Disinfection of surface areas can also be added on for necessary or requested services. Disinfection is always a good choice, however not always necessary.

HERE’S WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY…
“I suspected our home had a rodent issue, and I called Versa-Tech upon the recommendation of a good friend. I set up an initial consultation, but Versa-Tech had to reschedule a couple of times due to unforeseen circumstances. That did not leave a good initial impression with me, but Versa-Tech was apologetic about it and proactively offered a discount on services if I ended up using them.
Fast forward and Chris D. from Versa-Tech came out and inspected the house. Yikes, there was indeed a rodent issue. He climbed in the attic and garage space and took videos of the problems. He inspected all around the house and identified entry points. Chris was very patient and answered all my questions. Based on the very professional consultation, I ended up hiring Versa-Tech to do cleanup and remediation.
All subsequent visits from Chris were on-time and very professional. At all times, he and his staff were very conscious of COVID-19 protocols and wore booties whenever entering the house. They even put down plastic from the front door all the way to the second floor when doing the work which required a lot of foot traffic. For each visit, Chris would always explain what would be done that day and then go over what was done upon leaving. Again, he answered all questions I had, and it never seemed he was in a hurry to get out the door to get to the next job.
I later had to hire another vendor to do some duct repair work in the attic after Versa-Tech’s cleanup, and even the duct repair guy offered compliments on the work Versa-Tech did in the attic. He said there were no signs of rodents ever having been there, other than the duct damage and the various sealed-off entry points.
Is Versa-Tech the best bargain out there? Honestly, I don’t know as I didn’t really do a price comparison among multiple vendors. Will Versa-Tech do what they say they’ll do in a friendly and professional manner? Absolutely yes and then some. Do your own due diligence, but if you need pest control, I can’t recommend Versa-Tech highly enough. If you’re doing a comparison among various vendors, you’d be remiss not to include Versa-Tech in any list of potential vendors doing an initial consultation for you.”
