Extermination of rodents
Aside from environments too hostile to support animal life, rodents can survive in virtually any environment. These mammals are characterized by jaws with incisors that never stop growing. They use it to feed, to defend themselves, but also to gnaw all kinds of materials to make their way. For Extermination rodents call us.
The frantic reproductive rate of many rodents is at the origin of the complications that can cause their presence. For example, a mouse may have a litter of between 4 and 7 pups every 28 days. This is why rodents can quickly colonize a building and do a lot of damage. It is therefore imperative that you react hastily if you think you are a victim of a rodent infestation.
Presence of rodents
Even if mice and other rodents are able to survive the wild, human constructions can provide them with a shelter of choice, providing them with warmth and food.

The first signs that rodents have taken up residence in your home are the presence of droppings and suspicious noises in the walls or ceilings.
In the case of larger rodents such as squirrels and marmots, they may be attracted to certain food sources, such as a vegetable garden or flower beds. In such a situation, they can settle near your property in order to have easy access to this food.
