Rat & Mouse Control in Portland
Customized Solutions from Halt Pest Control
The threat of rats or mice is as much a part of home ownership as drain clogs or broken appliances—it’s not so much a matter of if it will happen, but more so when. Infestations can be a massive problem, as populations find a home in your home, grow in number, and cause all sorts of issues in your home including stealing food, chewing on wires, and much more. While you may be tempted to think a few traps can resolve the problem, the truth of the matter is no two problems are alike and the only truly effective way to get rid of them is through a customized solution implemented by a trained Portland pest control expert.
Here at Halt Pest Control, we understand how rats and mice work, and we can develop a unique, individually-tailored solution that eliminates the problem, removes the infestation from your home, and then protects your home in the future to prevent it from coming back. We carefully analyze your home using years of experience and the latest in state-of-the-art technology to find where rats and mice are nesting, how big their population is, and where they’re finding their food sources. We then use this knowledge to set a series of bait traps and other elimination devices that can get rid of the problem while keeping the rats and mice away from your family, pets, food sources, and much more. We also believe that the quality of the service you receive is just as important as the results of our extermination services, and that’s why all of our team members are carefully selected for their abilities and outstanding customer service.

Developing a Solution for Your Home’s Needs
Rat and mouse control is not a “one size fits all” science. Each colony has different factors that influence behavior, including movement pathways, obstructions or obstacles, and food source availability. Rats and mice in multi-family residential buildings also behave differently because of the greater food availability and wider network of pathways to travel across.
Keeping Rats & Mice Away
Once our team’s strategy has resolved your rat and mouse problem, there are some things you can do to keep the problem away. Rats and mice often seek shelter and food, and preventing your home from providing either of those things can help you make sure mice and rats are unable to return.
Here are some things you can focus on to prevent rat and mouse problems from coming back:
- Exclusion: sealing your home by eliminating cracks, holes, or other areas where mice and rats can squeeze into your home is critical. Proper caulking, installing door sweeps, and other similar efforts can give rats and mice no way to get back into your home.
- Sanitation: Sticky messes and left-out food are major attractions for rats and mice who will sneak into your home to feast on them. Keeping your home clean eliminates the smell of food and gets rid of the motivation for rats and mice to sneak in.
- Nest elimination: Eliminating nests and areas where rats and mice have settled means they have no place to go back to, thus removing the motivation for returning.
