Rodents – both rats and mice – are aggressive, tenacious and secretive, and are often a community-wide problem. Rodents are not domestic animals—they are wild, desperate to gain access to shelter and food and not in the least hesitant to compete with us for resources. Even brand new homes are susceptible—sometimes even more so when subtle new construction practices leave ways for rodents to gain entry.
You need a qualified and experienced rodent specialist to both determine detailed information about the infestation and begin eradication measures immediately.
First, have us perform our professional Initial Rodent Treatment—which includes a detailed inspection. This step initiates Cascade’s Inspect & Protect rodent service and provides needed information about rodent infestation, access points and visible damage.
Your Cascade rodent specialist will perform a 37-point inspection, notating and diagraming the results. Next, he will also perform an initial rodent service which includes the setting of rodent traps in strategic attic and crawlspaces, and set up “trap stations” at the exterior perimeter of the structure. He will then go over his findings with you, the homeowner. See initial rodent treatment page
Second, after the first step has been completed is Rodent Exclusion—repairing rodent access points making it tougher for rodents to gain access. See rodent exclusion page for more info
Cascade’s Inspect and Protect Rodent Service, on either a monthly or bi-monthly frequency, is necessary because the community-wide rodent population remains a constant threat to your home. Your Cascade pest management professional will carefully monitor the house by checking at each visit and care for the trap- or –bait stations left in place. During our service we note any conducive conditions, treat for other pests, and will also take digital images of monitoring results which are shared with you on our secure image portal.

Also Available is Cascade's Cleanout Service—Rodents can create an astonishing amount of damage and contamination in a short period of time. Droppings, urine and carcasses and other contamination are filthy and could pose a health hazard. You don't want these problems to appear on a home inspection when it comes time to sell your home in the future. Even if you aren't selling your home, removing the contamination reduces the pheremone scent trail left behind as well as offending odors. We remove the rodent droppings and other disgusting filth, and damaged insulation is removed & replaced. In most instances a new vapor barrier is installed, and we apply an organic deodorant and sanitizing solution in the crawlspace or attic. Learn more about Cascade's Clean Out Service
Our combined rodent service and cleanout service helps protect your home and hygiene.
