Rodent Control For Maine Homes
When you contact Pine State for help getting rid of mice or rats, we will inspect the interior and exterior of your home to determine the scope of the problem, the points of entry, and what conditions are attracting rodents to your home.
Based on our evaluation, we’ll develop a customized plan that often includes:
- An initial clean-out to remove rodents already active inside the dwelling.
- Minor exclusion work to seal obvious access points.
- Installation of bait boxes on the exterior of the structure as well as in the garage, attic and basement to prevent future rodent activity.
- Behavior and landscaping recommendations to make your property less hospitable to mice, rats and other rodents.
- Follow-up visits if the rodent problem is severe.

Frequently Asked Questions About Rodents
Can mice fit through a small crack?
If you can fit a pencil under an exterior door, a garage door, or in a break in your window seal, your home or business could become infested with rodents. Mice and rats do not need a whole lot of clearance to gain entry.
Where do rodents hide?
Rodents are often a problem in quieter areas of homes including attics, storage closets, and wall voids. They like to nest in breed in close proximity to food and typically become active at night seeking out sustenance.
In commercial properties, mice and rats often nest and breed in storage rooms, utility rooms as well as roof and ceiling spaces. Areas that are close to potential food sources are likely to have rodent activity as well.
Are mice and rats dangerous?
Yes, mice and rodents should be considered dangerous to health and property. They have the ability to introduce fleas, ticks (which can carry Lyme disease) and droppings and urine from infected rodents can expose people to Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome.
Rodents also damage buildings, contaminate surfaces and items, destroy product- anyplace that rodents can access is likely to incur harm in some way or another
