Project Description


With the world being home to over 1,500 rodent species, it’s not hard to get a rodent infestation in your home. The most common types of rodents in households and commercial properties include mice and rats. These pests can cause big damage to our properties due to their continuously growing front incisors. To prevent them from overgrowing, they gnaw on almost anything they encounter. This can lead to electrical issues and other safety concerns. Eliminate them with the help of our experts!



There are two species of mice in the Pacific Northwest: Deer mice and house mice. While they both look really similar, they do have one differentiating factor: their belly.

  • Deer Mice -> Have white bellies
  • House Mice -> Have brown bellies

These mice are approximately 3” long and have the following features:

  • Brown in color
  • Large ears
  • Tail sass long as their body
  • Droppings that are 1/4” long and pointed on the ends

How You Know You Have Mice

Mice defecate as they move in search of food and water. Droppings can be found in multiple areas that are usually behind such things as refrigerators, stoves, piles of firewood, sheds, garages, under sinks, and other concealed spaces.

Although mice have adapted to habitat among humans, they are very fearful of them and are good at hiding. Don’t leave any hole unsealed; mice can fit through a hole as small as a dime!

Mice are communal creatures that breed to a great extent. Don’t let them go out of control with the help of Inland Pest Control.

Pack Rats

Pack rats are small rodents with long tails and the familiar rat appearance we all know. There are almost 25 extinct species of Pack Rates throughout North America. Also known as wood rats, these rodents typically measure 10. – 18. Inches in length and weight within 300-600 grams. They are larger than mice and have brownish-grey fur. If you’ve noticed a number of these on your property, it is best to act soon!

How We Treat Rodents

At Inland Pest control, we focus on low-impact pest control that effectively eliminates rodents while minimizing the impact on the planet. In order to eliminate your rodent problem, we’ll first:

  • Conduct a thorough inspection of the facility and identify entry points
  • Implement a control program that will work best with your needs
  • Seal up all entry points

Once Inland Pest control implements a rodent control program customized to your needs, we’ll be able to provide a complete elimination and prevent them from coming back for future infestations.

How to Prevent Rodents

To keep mice and rats away from your home or business, we recommend:

  • Cutting tree branches away from your property
  • Keeping your lawn cut short
  • Repairing any rood damage your property may have
  • Sealing up openings in the foundation and exterior walls of your property
  • Place sheet metal (about 2 ft height) around the bases of your fruit trees
  • Pick up fallen fruit and veggies from your garden area
  • Keep the lids of your trash bins closed
  • Keep your outside area free of any kind of food debris
