Humane Rodent Pest Control Services
We at Cascade Pest Control understand that many people prefer a humane approach safeguarding their home from rodents. While the damage that rats and other rodents carry is costly, and any filth/disease does cause concern, it is good to know there is a way to approach rodent pest control that does not involve intentionally harming these animals. For this reason, Cascade offers the option for non-lethal humane rodent control for rats and mice.
A Non-Lethal, Humane Approach for Rat / Mouse Control
Considering rodent control from a humane, “exclude them out” method involves a sensitive approach. Cascade provides non-lethal humane, non-lethal rodent control and prevention with a sensitivity to the welfare of these small animals.
Step 1 – Inspection & Assessment
Our technicians perform a more deliberate and careful rodent inspection and assessment, realizing we will have to rely heavily on flushing the mice, rats or rodents out of the structure.
Step 2 – Exclusion
Our humane rodent control involves a little more intensive labor since we do not rely on any toxic poisons or traps that kill.
The harmless non-lethal rodent control that Cascade Pest Control has developed relies on exclusion – finding openings or easy-access spots, flushing out the rodents, and blocking them out by locating and sealing the rodent entry points.
Rodent exclusion involves assessing the conditions for attraction and preventing infestation by eliminating their entry access, such as, eliminating their food source, closing gaps and small holes, sealing common entrance points, assessing hard-to-reach high places (roof, eaves, attics) and crawlspaces to close openings for easy access.
Exclusion for a rat and a mouse may require a slightly different approach due to their differences in size.
Step 3 – Follow-up
For successful humane rodent control, it is imperative that you have Cascade Pest Control periodically monitor your home or business. This allows us to know when your home is again assaulted by rats, mice, or other rodents so we can act quickly to help keep you, your family, and your home structure safe from damage or contamination.
Importantly, Cascade remains with you, monitoring your home or business periodically to ensure rats, mice, or other rodents have not regained entry.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does Cascade Pest Control provide humane pest control?
Yes, for clients who request it, Cascade has developed a humane approach to controlling rats, mice and other rodents.
Do you use humane mouse traps?
Cascade’s Humane Rodent Pest Control Service uses no lethal body-gripping traps. In most cases we avoid using traps altogether, although live-traps can occasionally be used for mice.
How do you catch a mouse humanely?
When approaching mouse control with their welfare in mind, we at Cascade primarily rely on mouse or rodent exclusion techniques that prevent and displace them from the home.
Do you use humane mouse bait?
Humane mouse or rodent bait carries no toxic poison and can be used to either attract an animal into a live-trap or can be used for monitoring purposes. When monitoring, your Cascade Pest Control technician will check to see whether the bait has been nibbled on to indicate activity levels of mice or other rodents.
Do you use non-lethal humane rat traps?
Non-lethal humane rat traps are available and can occasionally be utilized, however, Cascade’s humane rodent pest control service relies primarily on getting the rats to move out of the home or business structure.
What is catch and release?
Catch and release rodent control methods rely on live-trapping and then releasing the rat, mouse or squirrel in another location. There are some legal limitations to this approach, so Cascade Pest Control’s humane services rely more on flushing the rat or other rodent from the building structure and keeping them out.
Do you use catch and release mouse traps?
Catch and release mice or mouse traps are available, although some types have limited effectiveness and they are very labor intensive. Nevertheless, a complete humane approach to controlling mice requires an emphasis on detailed mouse or rodent exclusion techniques.
Do you use catch and release rat traps?
Catch-and-release rat traps are available on the market and can be used to supplement a service. However, there can be legal limitations around where rats are released. For this reason, Cascade humane rodent pest control relies predominantly on flushing the rats out of the home or commercial building while emphasizing the detailed work necessary to block out and build out the rats, also known as rat exclusion.
