Mice and Rat Solutions
Expert rodent whisperers at your service, since 1860.
Some house guests don’t knock before entering.
Providing mice and rat solutions is how our company was originally founded by Solomon Rose in 1860. So it’s very humbling when we say we’ve been protecting folks from the harms of rodents longer than anyone in the country. Rodents are notorious for spreading diseases. Protecting your health is our number one priority.
Mice and Rat Solutions
Mice and rats are included on the list of dozens of common household pests that our most popular residential service keeps you protected from all year long.
Solving Recurring Rodent Issues Permanently
If your property is prone to recurring rodent activity, you may want to consider a more permanent solution we call Exclusion. Exclusion work involves sealing up points of entry and sometimes repairing structural issues. This stops rodents from gaining access to the interiors of the property. It solves the issue at the source.

Signs of Mice
Mice are curious, highly social, nocturnal nibblers that will easily gain access into the interiors of homes and businesses through openings the size of a dime. While they have a place in nature, the damage they can cause and the threats they pose to our health make them hazardous pests.
Here are some common signs of mice in the house:
- Droppings ⅛ to ¼ of an inch long with pointed ends
- Gnaw marks and damaged packages
- Burrow materials (insulation, cotton, paper, foliage debris)
- Greasy rub marks on walls along paths of travel
- Actual rodents themselves
Norway rats have been thriving on human error for centuries. Opportunistic yet cautious, these rodents are strong swimmers, climbers, jumpers and runners. With the ability to reproduce at just 5 weeks of age, a burrow of Norway rats can quickly multiply. They are known to contaminate food and spread viruses, diseases, fleas, and other vectors, making them threatening pests to homes and businesses.
Rodent Control Solutions
Successful mice and rat solutions are multi-faceted efforts that include routine inspection for signs of activity, placement of baits to control an existing population, and continued efforts to prevent inviting them into the structure.
Working with a licensed pest management professional will help to identify remove their food and harborage sources, making your property less inviting. Advice, such as sealing any holes larger than 1/4″ wide, helps prolong the effectiveness of a rodent control service, by getting to the root of the issue.
Above and beyond efforts to not just eradicate but also educate.
“I reached out to Rose because I saw evidence of rats in our backyard. Sean Boyce came out and honestly exceeded our expectations. We thought he’d just place some boxes and leave, but Sean took his time to talk with us about how he decides where the boxes go, how rats use them, and how if our dog ever got a rat that had ingested the Rose product he wouldn’t be harmed! Which was a huge relief to us. I HIGHLY recommend Sean and the Rose team! .”
