Rodent Control in Austin and Dallas
Mice and rats are very common throughout the area. You can find rodent control problems in new developments where construction and clear-cutting land draws them out and forces them to find a new home. Often times this becomes your house and you’re not aware of an infestation until after you see signs or hear noises in your home. Usually, months go by before you ever notice them.
You can also find mice and rats near older, more established areas. Often times trees are larger and touching the home. You may have a ditch or water source close, too. This make your home a very conducive environment for rodents to live. If you’re having rodent control problems in Austin or Dallas, contact Stampede Pest Control. Our Austin and Dallas rodent removal professionals use preventive measures by recommending Rodent Bait Stations around your house.
These are stations set up just in case a rodent comes creeping around your home. They crawl inside, eat the bait and run off to their water source (which is usually away from your home) and lay to rest. We also can do exclusion work because we specialize in rodent removal and always make sure we do it at a price that is affordable for you!

Spotting Rodent Infestations
A rat infestation can occur for months before you’re able to witness the results. Rodents can pose health risks to you and your family as they carry disease, as well as cause serious damages to your property and finances if neglected for too long. The most typical warning signs of a rodent infestation are feces and urine, noises in your walls and tight spaces, and even nibbling through house structure materials and food. If you’re experiencing any of these warning signs, it’s important you implement some form of rat control with the help of a pest control company.
