Mouse control is our most popular service.

The goal of our service is to:
1. Identify areas of activity with an interior inspection.
2. Figure out where mice are entering on the exterior.
3. Make the proper repairs to keep them out.
4. Control whatever remains inside.

Service Plans:

Option 1: Single Service
Cost is 200$ plus tax. Follow-up visits are upon request. Cost per follow-up visit is 100$ plus tax (within 60 days of initial service). Customer agrees to maintain the traps that we place during the initial service. Or we use tamper-resistant bait stations in unfinished areas of the home to control the mice.

Option 2: Three-Visit Plan
Cost is 400$ plus tax. The three-visit plan includes the initial visit plus two follow-up visits. With this, you receive a 90 day warranty. On this plan, we maintain the traps/ rodenticide placed during the initial visit. The idea is that there will be some activity between the first and second visit. We reset the control measures during the second visit. As long as the entry points are repaired, there should be minimal activity (if any) during the third visit.

Initial/ Single Service Includes:
1. Upon arrival, show us what you are experiencing inside. At the same time, we will inspect the interior. Identifying areas of activity helps with trap placement and locating entry points outside. We will need to check the kitchen, basement, and possibly the attic.
2. Our technician will then go outside to identify potential wildlife entry points. We include a square foot area of patchwork repairs along the foundation. A “patchwork repair” is repairable with spray foam, stainless-steel fabric, and clear sealant. We include as many of these repairs that you can fit into a square foot area.
3. Then we discuss any repairs that we made. If there are extra repair recommendations, we will review these with you. We encourage you to perform any recommended repairs to prevent future rodent problems. We can fix most entry points for you. If we can, we will provide a cost estimate.
4. Finally, we set traps or apply rodenticide to the areas of activity.

Keep in mind that there may be extra repairs that are not included in the service plan.

We do not include repairs that: Need a ladder. Or repairs that require us to remove lattice/ porch panels. Or enter a confined space. If a repair requires a material other than the spray foam, clear sealant, and steel fabric, it is not included. We also quote separately any patchwork repairs exceeding a square foot area.

If your porch or deck panels are not easily removable or hinged, please provide access. Otherwise, we can only do a visual inspection with our spotlights. If you have a low-lying deck with entry points underneath, it might not be possible for us to repair them.

Some repairs we are unable to make. For example, if you have an attached garage, you may need to call a door company to replace the weatherstrips.

*We place rodenticide outside of the reach of children and pets. Otherwise we place them in tamper-resistant bait stations. In most cases, mouse bait stations are set on top of the foundation walls in the basement (on the sill plate). Mouse bait stations provide us with a monitoring tool, along with a control agent. It is an effective control measure that requires little maintenance. Bait stations do not trap rodents. With the use of rodenticide, you will not retrieve the resulting carcasses.

*In case of an attic inspection, care will be taken not to track dirt and insulation into the living space. However, Lakewood Exterminating will not be responsible if this occurs.
It may be necessary to inspect the roof level. Lakewood Exterminating is not responsible for bending/denting of weak gutters from ladders.

We always recommend:

  • Keeping branches trimmed at least 6 feet away from the structure/ roofline.
  • Removing ground cover from the base of the structure. This provides cover for their movement and potential nesting sites.
  • Remove English ivy or other vines growing on the structure. English ivy can deteriorate mortar if left on the structure. It can also grow under the base of the siding. By doing so, it can separate the siding from the foundation- allowing mouse entry. If nothing else, it makes it very difficult to inspect these areas.
  • Remove bird feeders. Having a constant supply of seed for mice to eat close to the home is not conducive to keeping a rodent-free home. If you choose to feed the birds, only put enough out for each day. Remove any leftover or fallen seed each evening.
  •  Regular removal of fallen tree nuts is also beneficial. If you have a yard full of hundreds of acorns, you are asking to have mice around. A high-powered backpack leaf blower comes in handy. A mouse’s feeding range is usually 10-30 feet from its nest.
  • Keep stored items, such as firewood away from the structure. Mice will find cluttered areas like these, to inhabit.
