Charlotte Rodent Control
Expert Rat and Mice Removal in North Carolina
Rodents can cause big problems in homes and commercial buildings. The most common rodent found in our area is the common house mouse, but other rodents like rats can also cause problems.
Mice & Rat Control in Charlotte
Rodents can include many types of pests, but two of the most common in the Charlotte area are mice and rats. Mice are typically identifiable by their smaller, rounded ears and long, thin tails that are covered with a thin layer of fur. Rats have more blunt noses, thicker tails that are usually hairless, and, in general, rats are much larger than mice.
Where Do Rats & Mice Nest?
They both like to make their nets in any area of debris or place that is infrequently visited.
Common places inside that you may find mice and rats:
- Crawl spaces & behind walls
- Attics & basements
- Behind appliances
- Inside boxes
Places outside your house where rats and mice may live:
- Under decking
- Under your foundation
- Piles of wood
- Thick brush or vegetation
If you suspect that you are dealing with mice or rats, it is important to call a professional right away. Not only can these pests be pesky, but they can also bring along fleas, lice, and disease.
Rodents Cause Damage & Disease
Homeowners are often horrified to learn they have a rodent in the house. Rodents can cause significant property damage and spread disease to humans and domestic animals.
When rodents get into your house, they can chew through your drywall, wiring, and other structures, causing property damage and contaminating your home with their saliva and droppings.
Rodents are known to spread diseases that include:
- Food poisoning
- Rat bite fever
- Maurine typhus

Eliminate Rodents & Keep Them Out
In addition to our pest control services, it is important to prevent rodents from gaining access to your home.
Seal Exterior Points of Entry: Mice can squeeze into a gap as small as the size of a quarter, so it is helpful to look for any cracks, holes, or gaps in your home to stop mice and other rodents from getting inside. Regularly inspect the outside of your home to find possible points of entry and seal them to prevent rodents from coming back.
Clean Up Debris Regularly: Mice, rats, and other wildlife can also take up residence outdoors, close to your home. Their presence outdoors makes it more likely that they will find their way into your home. You can help keep them away by inspecting your yard to eliminate places that rodents find appealing. Rocks, piles of lumber, old equipment, and other debris should be removed from your yard, when possible, or kept far from the house to discourage rodents from making themselves at home.
