Terms/information you may want to know:

Breach– any current entry points on the roof, building perimeter and/or garage wildlife is using to enter your home or business

Exclusion Services (Animal Proofing) – eliminating the entry of wildlife into your home by sealing up the identified current and potential access points

Lifetime Transferable Wildlife Guarantee or LTG – the industries one of a kind commitment to you-we offer all our customers a guarantee that stays with the home even if you sell.  What a great added selling point to a potential buyer. With our guarantee you have peace of mind permanently. If ANY wildlife enters your home through our exclusion points we remove them, repair the breach and decontaminate the affected areas at no charge.

Decontamination – our proprietary fogging process includes a complete sanitation, deodorization and virucide treatment. Simply put it kills all the germs that harm you and your family and destroys the smell of urine and feces that act as an attractant to other nuisance wildlife. This is a key component in our process if you have/had a rodent/wildlife issue. MSDS is available upon request.

Attractants – odors left behind by urine and feces that draw other animals into your home including the same animals and their predators

What types of wildlife does your company remove– from Armadillos to Zebra’s (if we had them in Florida), we remove any nuisance wildlife, and there are a variety of state restrictions

Nuisance Wildlife – any unwanted wild animals that may harm property or pose a threat to humans, protected wildlife will be managed within state regulations

 “Roof to Road”- a term we use to describe complete “animal proofing” coverage of your entire property

If my neighbor has rodents how will they get into my home – if your home is not “animal proofed” they will enter through points left unaddressed in the construction of all buildings. Simply put buildings are not constructed with animal proofing in mind.

If I see one rat in my home how many can I assume there really are – for our purposes we estimate at least 5 rats will be present per each rat seen, but truthfully it could be less or more. It isn’t typical to start seeing them unless the problem is significant. The bottom line is even if it is one now that number will grow quickly.

Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS): Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is a deadly disease transmitted by infected rodents through urine, droppings, or saliva. Humans can contract the disease when they breathe in aerosolized virus. HPS was first recognized in 1993 and has since been identified throughout the United States. Although rare, HPS is potentially deadly. Rodent control in and around the home remains the primary strategy for preventing Hantavirus infection. THERE HAS ONLY BEEN ONE CASE REPORTED IN FLORIDA SINCE 1993.

Murine Typhus: Murine typhus (caused by infection with R. typhi) occurs worldwide and is transmitted to humans by rat fleas. Flea-infested rats can be found throughout the year in humid tropical environments, but in temperate regions are most common during the warm summer months. Travelers who visit in rat-infested buildings and homes, especially in harbor or riverine environments, can be at risk for exposure to the agent of murine typhus.

Rat-bite fever (RBF): Rat-bite fever (RBF) is a systemic bacterial illness caused by Streptobacillus moniliformis that can be acquired through the bite or scratch of a rodent or the ingestion of food or water contaminated with rat feces.

Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium: As its name suggests, it causes a typhoid-like disease in mice. In humans S. Typhimurium does not cause as severe disease as S. Typhi, and is not normally fatal. The disease is characterized by diarrhea, abdominal cramps, vomiting and nausea, and generally lasts up to 7 days. Unfortunately, in immunocompromized people, that is the elderly, young, or people with depressed immune systems, Salmonella infections are often fatal if they are not treated with antibiotics.

Leptospirosis: Leptospirosis is a bacterial disease that affects humans and animals. It is caused by bacteria of the genus Leptospira. In humans it causes a wide range of symptoms, and some infected persons may have no symptoms at all. Symptoms of leptospirosis include high fever, severe headache, chills, muscle aches, and vomiting, and may include jaundice (yellow skin and eyes), red eyes, abdominal pain, diarrhea, or a rash. If the disease is not treated, the patient could develop kidney damage, meningitis (inflammation of the membrane around the brain and spinal cord), liver failure, and respiratory distress. In rare cases death occurs.

Eosinophilic Meningitis: Eosinophilic meningitis is an infection of the brain occurring in association with an increase in the number of eosinophils, white blood cells that are associated with infection with worms that penetrate into the body. The organism most commonly causing eosinophilic meningitis is a rat lung worm called angiostrongylus cantonensis.

Why isn’t an on-going trapping program a sensible option?

Typically offered by pest control companies, on-going trapping simply leaves you living with rodents and poison traps around your home or business permanently. This is not the solution; it sends a poor message to visitors and is unhealthy for pets and humans.

How is our process different?

 We have a straight forward four prong approach:

1. provide you with a detailed description of your rodent/wildlife problem

2. trap/remove the rodent/wildlife

3. Seal up all current and potential entry points, “permanently animal proof your structure”

4. Decontaminate the areas affected by feces and urine to protect the health and safety of your family, friends or patrons.

(Never worry about rodents getting in your home or business, your sealed up, guaranteed!)
