Getting Rid Of Rodents In Your Waldorf & Surrounding Area Home
You’d think that if something as large as a rodent got into your house, you’d notice right away. Sometimes that’s true. You might see a rodent scurry through your kitchen, hear one scratching around inside your walls, or notice the telltale sign of droppings left in your cabinets. In other instances, a rodent infestation might be harder to spot, with the signs more subtle or in less frequented areas. Rodents might easily set up their home in your attic without your notice or could be hidden away behind storage boxes in a dusty corner of your basement.
No matter how obvious a rodent infestation is in your Waldorf home, as soon as you discover one, it’s important to take steps to implement an effective rodent control plan. Of all the pests to get into homes in our area, rodents are one of the most dangerous because of their ability to both damage your home and property and spread harmful illnesses. Allowing rodents to remain in your house will lead to serious consequences, but the faster you remove the problem, the better for the health of your family and the safety of your home.
Mike’s Pest, Termite and Wildlife Control offers homeowners the rodent control in Waldorf you need for a fully rodent-free home. Our experienced and professional service technicians know the most effective rodent control methods. They will develop a treatment plan for your home that targets your rodent infestation, no matter the location or size of the issue. Our home pest control service will not only get rid of the rodents in your house but ensure they can’t return.
Our Rodent Control Service
All rodents, no matter the species, are a problem when they get into Waldorf homes. However, when it comes to rodents in Maryland, mice and rats are the most commonly-found rodents in homes in our area. Regardless of the species, rest assured that Mike’s Pest, Termite and Wildlife Control can take care of your rodent infestation.
Our service begins with a thorough inspection of your property. We use our extensive knowledge and experience to inspect all areas in and around your house most likely to have rodent activity. During the inspection, we’ll look around garage door frames, identify entry points, and check your attic. While in the attic, we look at the insulation, pipes, wires, ductwork, and ventilation for any signs of rodent-caused damage. If needed, we may also make use of a drone to inspect your roof for entry points and roof rats. Our inspection is purposely comprehensive not only so that we can determine exactly where rodents are spending time but also so that we can make sure you don’t have any other wildlife issues around your home.
Once our inspection is complete, we’ll provide an initial treatment designed to eliminate the rodents already in your house, decrease the population of rodents around the exterior of your home, and prevent rodents from getting back into your house. We do this by using a variety of methods that include:
- Placing tamper-proof bait stations in strategic locations around the exterior of your house, such as near air conditioning units.
- Placing traps with different lures in strategic locations around the interior of your house.
- Placing snap traps ten feet apart in areas with active infestations.
- Determining entry points around your foundation and sealing them with a foam product with a deterrent, so rodents can’t chew through it.
- Placing screening around foundation vents as needed, so rodents can’t get inside through the vents.
- Blocking holes and doing other exclusion work to prevent new infestations.
We also offer an attic remediation service, as well as crawl space clean-out and encapsulation services. These services are ideal for homes that have had an active rodent infestation in either of those locations and have left a mess and property damage behind.
Follow-up services are a necessity for any rodent control plan to be effective. We will return to your house two months in a row following our initial service, then will return bimonthly to maintain your home’s rodent protection and to remove any rodents found in traps. Our rodent control service includes unlimited free callbacks if an issue arises between scheduled services.

We were very pleased with Mike’s Pest, Termite and Wildlife Control. Mike and Steve came to remove 2 big hornet nests from a tree in our yard. Great customer service from them and their office staff Angie who I had contact with a few times before the nest removal. Thank you again!
