    Rodents can be described as non-flying mammals and there exists about 1,500+ different species of rodents in the animal kingdom. Some of these rodents, such as mice, rats, guinea pigs, and hamsters, are sometimes kept as pets but can also be seen as a nuisance if unwanted. Besides mice and rats, gophers and moles are other types of rodents that can cause people a lot of problems as well. People have good reason to fear the presence of rodents as they are known to be disease carriers and rapid breeders who can cause an extreme amount of property damage in a short amount of time.

    Rats and mice are the most common type of rodent that we see in the Orange County areas such as Huntington Beach, Westminster, and Fountain Valley. In the winter season, these rodents are known to take shelter in homes and buildings all across the United States but there are specific species that are more common to find here in SoCal. For example, the Roof Rat is more likely to be found in coastal states. They are known for their excellent swimming skills but also for their history associated with the bubonic plague and other diseases such as typhus and jaundice.

    Besides the Roof Rat, Norway Rats are also common in OC cities and mice such as the House Mouse and Deer Mouse are as well. All these rodents are quite similar in threat and habitat as they prefer messy surroundings, can pose significant health risks by spreading various diseases, and can cause severe property damage by gnawing through electrical wires and other material. Prevention is the best way to combat rodent infestation so keep clutter to an absolute minimum, keep all food in sealed containers, pick up all fruits in your yard, and regularly inspect for any signs of droppings, gnaw marks, or greasy stains of walls which would be left by a rodent’s fur.


    If you suspect you have a rodent infestation or just want to have an inspection of your property, contact Preferred Pest Control and let one of our licensed pest professionals help you. Remember that rodents are known to reproduce very rapidly so time is of the essence.

Check out our great reviews on Yelp to get a better understanding on how we operate and provide the best care for our clients. For example, here’s some recent testimonials regarding rats in Orange County:

    “We had a problem with rats in a medium sized apartment building.   Preferred offered a good price point, and we decided to go with them.  I met Larry Castillo onsite.  He was very knowledgeable and professional.  He advised me that removing the rats would be difficult given the size and construction of the building.  He spent a lot of time training me on how to identify where the rats were entering and moving around on the roof and building.  He provided me the means to check and re-bait traps myself.  It turned out to be as difficult as Larry predicted, but it looks like we finally prevailed.  Larry went beyond the letter of our contract to work with me to get the job done.  I could not be more pleased with the result.”

    “Larry came out the following day and placed some traps out in our attic and cover up all possible avenues for the rodents to enter.”

    When you call a Preferred Pest Control, our rodent specialists will provide a thorough inspection of your property to identify what type of rodent species is bothering you, where they are nesting, and possible reasons for attraction. Our rodent exterminators eliminate all points of entry and sanitize the area to deny the rodent’s access to any food and water sources. Effective methods of population control such as baits, traps, and/or poisons may or may not be introduced depending on rodent infestation severity.
