Rodent control

Having an Rodent issue?

We can help.

Rodent extermination begins by providing a thorough inspection of your house to locate the source of rodent entry, their travel patterns and their nests. At Brothers Pest Management we seal off all rodent entry points and this is called Exclusion. By eliminating the possibility of rodents gaining re-entry into your home, we reduce the risk of re-infestation. After we exclude the rodents from your home we start a heavy rodent trap and bait out program to eliminate the current rodent population inside as well as decrease the population on the outside your home as well.

Large Call to Action Headline

Rodent Control starts out by inspecting the home and finding the active pathways exterior and interior of a structure. We look for poop, rub marks, chewed through spots, and potential food and water sources as to why they are there. From there we deploy locked and secured boxes on the exterior of the home to provide them with a food source. This is poison, and the boxes are locked and only one of our licensed staff has the keys. We then place traps in and around the structure in areas where we have found evidence or potential areas of concern. While we are doing this, we point out entry points and potential entry points that should be sealed. This is called exclusion and it is an effective way to stop entry into your home. There is usually an additional fee for this service. While traps are set and rodent activity is active, we come out weekly to check traps and bait boxes for activity and reposition, reset and refill all active devices on your property to make sure we are maximizing the results. The main reason for the re-infestation of rodents is pulling devices and traps too soon before the proper containment is met to eliminate potential re-infestation of Rodents.

Common Rodents found in Minnesota

Mice in Minnesota

Northern Grasshopper Mouse, Deer Mice, Meadow Jumping Mouse, Woodland Jumping Mouse, Western Harvest Mouse & House Mouse

Mice
  • Mice often find their way inside homes as the weather gets cooler and food scarcer. Minnesota’s reputation for bone-chilling weather makes our homes the perfect place for them, especially when it gets colder. You see, it only takes a small crack or hole on the exterior for a small mouse to squeeze their way right in. And as long as they have what they need for survival – food, water, and shelter, mice will begin to rapidly multiply.
  • Mice can and do eat through just about anything. If it’s softer than their teeth, the will gnaw their way through.
  • Their front incisor teeth never stop growing and can grow as much as 5 inches in a year’s time.
  • They can jump 12 feet horizontally like a superhero and 12 inches vertically.
  • They don’t require water and thrive in the heat.
  • They have Spiderman-like abilities in scaling vertical surfaces.

Voles in Minnesota

Meadow Vole, Southern Red-Backed Vole, Rock Vole, Woodland Vole, Eastern Heather Vole & Prairie Vole

Vole
  • Meadow voles eat many greens and seeds, including crops, garden produce, fruits, and the bark of fruit trees. When other food is scarce, they sometimes eat meat.
  • Active year-round, meadow voles clip grass to create tunnels. In winter, snow covers their tunnels. In spring, when the snow melts, you might see these odd-looking tunnels of dirt and grass on top of your lawn.
  • Southern red-backed voles have reddish-brown fur on their backs. They are believed to be one of the most abundant mammals in Minnesota’s forests.
  • Southern red-backed voles are active around the clock. Agile climbers, they cache food–seeds, nuts, fruits, leaves, bark, roots, fungi, and insects.
  • Rock Voles live only in the northeastern corner of Minnesota. They eat insects, fungi, grasses, and other plants. They prefer to live in forests with a lot of moss-covered boulders, scurrying around in subterranean runways and between rocks.
  • Woodland Voles live in the far southeastern tip of Minnesota, where they burrow into the soil and leaf litter.
  • Eastern Heather Voles live near the Canadian border at the southernmost part of their range.

Rats

Norway Rat

Rat
  • The brown (Norway) rat also known as the common rat, street rat, sewer rat, wharf rat, Hanover rat, Norway rat, Norwegian rat and Parisian rat, is a widespread species of common rat.
  • The brown (Norway) rat is nocturnal and is a good swimmer, both on the surface and underwater, and has been observed climbing slim round metal poles several feet in order to reach garden bird feeders.
  • The brown (Norway) rat is a true omnivore and will consume almost anything, but cereals form a substantial part of its diet.
  • The brown rat can breed throughout the year if conditions are suitable, with a female producing up to five litters a year.
  • The gestation period is only 21 days, and litters can number up to 14, although seven is common.
  • The Norway rat reach sexual maturity in about five weeks. Under ideal conditions (for the rat), this means that the population of females could increase by a factor of three and a half in 8 weeks (5 weeks for sexual maturity and 3 weeks of gestation), corresponding to a population growing by a factor of 10 in just 15 weeks.
  • As a result, the population can grow from 2 to 15,000 in a year.
  • The maximum lifespan for a Norway rat is three years, although most barely manage one year.
