Rodents

The Alpha Pest Control team can help alleviate rodents, rats or mice, that have made themselves at home in your house or place of business.

There are many species of rats in the world and the United States. The two most common rats in Arizona are the Norway Rat and Roof Rat.

The Norway Rat is an excellent swimmer and is often found in waterfront areas, sewers, storm drains, underground burrow and yes in our homes.

The Roof Rat is a phenomenal climber, easily climbing trees, power poles, sides of houses, or utility lines. They prefer to nest above ground, and commonly nest in trees or thick shrubbery, as well as in the attics of our houses.

Mice are also a problem in Arizona. Mice are breeding machines – a female mouse can give birth to six mice 19 days after mating and can mate again in two days. They nest near food sources and feed up to 20 times a day.

Alpha Pest Control can help diagnose the specific issues that you are having with rodents.
