Rodents’ instincts make them menacing and difficult to control, presenting serious threats to the health and safety of household and businesses.


Rats are larger than the common mouse and can cause more damage. They are mindful of control measures, such as poorly placed traps or baits. They inhabit attics, burrow under concrete porches, invade wall voids and other hard to reach places.

Like many other pests, rats can carry multiple diseases and parasites. They can carry fleas, lice, and ticks into your home along with diseases such as yellow fever, Toxoplasma gondii, campylobacter, the Black Death and swine fever among others.


Performing a few preventive steps can ensure the extermination of rat populations. These steps include closing openings and crevices properly, and placing baits and traps in the right locations in order to be effective. If your home is already infested with rats, don’t wait to call Century Pest Control.



Mice are usually smaller than your common rat, but can be just as dangerous. They invade your home seeking food, water and warmth. Without mouse control intervention, one pair of mice may produce 200 offspring in four months.


Be sure to secure food promptly and properly. Mice can contaminate any food they may find along with any surface they touch, so it’s best to make sure food isn’t left out unprotected. Where you see one mouse, there’s always likely to be more. Don’t wait to call Century Pest Control.
