When rodents invade your home, your family needs instant relief. Reliability is a must when it comes to rodent control in Arizona, and time is a precious commodity. The longer you try DIY techniques to stop your rodent problems, the longer these pests will have time to multiply. While DIY techniques can sometimes help control a population, rarely will they actually eliminate an entire rodent infestation in a house.
Defense Against Diseases and Allergens
Protecting your family is your first priority, and here at Invader Pest, it’s ours too. Nothing is more important than keeping your family healthy, and with our rodent control services in the greater Phoenix area, you’ll be able to do just that. Rodents bring disease, viruses, and allergens into your house, threatening the health of your family. But the damage they cause won’t stop there. Rodents will chew on electrical wires, phone lines, internet cords, and will torment your family by scratching your ceilings and walls. Our Arizona rodent exterminators use 3 different techniques to eliminate rodents from your home for good:
By baiting and trapping, we eliminate the existing rodent population around your home. However, to keep rats and mice from returning, you must seal off any points of entry around your home, and that's exactly what we do! A careful inspection of your property will allow us to easily identify and close the entry points.
Stop Roof Rats in Their Tracks
Roof rats are sneaky rodents and are a major nuisance in Arizona. These furry creatures spend the majority of their lives off the ground, traveling from home to home by power lines, trees, shrubs, and other creative avenues. More active in the winter and early spring, roof rats enter your home as the temperatures drop to find a warm place to sleep.
Roof rats are typically black rats but can be other colors. Their large ears and scaly tails that are almost always longer than their bodies are dead giveaways to what they are. This invasive species is not native to Arizona – roof rats were only first discovered in Arizona in 2002. Since then, they’ve been showing up in communities all over.
These rats only need a hole the size of a quarter to gain entry, but, once in, they can cause a lot of damage. Roof rats can transmit diseases to both people and animals and cause massive amounts of damage by consuming and contaminating food, gnawing on wires and creating a fire hazard, or tearing up insulation materials for their nests.
Our services for roof rat control in Arizona will protect every aspect of your home from rodents, including those hard-to-reach places where roof rats can get in.
Don't Let Pack Rats Endanger Your Family
Another common critter in Arizona – the "Pack Rat" – makes life more dangerous for your family and pets. Pack rats build their own nests and can be found in cactuses, under bushes, and even in parked cars. They make their nests out of twigs and cactus joints, and these nests will often attract other predators like scorpions, kissing bugs, ticks, fleas, and mites to your property. And when Arizona Pack Rats live in cars, they chew up the wires and pack the compartment full of sticks and whatever they used to make their mess - causing expensive repair work.
To protect your children and pets from the Arizona Pack Rat, you should call in the experts at Invader Pest Management. By sealing up any holes around your home, we’ll stop the Arizona Pack Rat from getting to your food and disturbing your family’s peace of mind, providing you with an extra barrier of protection. If you find droppings along the outside walls of your house, under your spa or barbecue, then you may already have a pack rat problem.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it a mouse or a rat?
Arizona has an extensive range of wildlife, and especially in the rodent category. Some of our top rodent pests are Arizona’s pack rat, field mouse, house mouse, deer mouse, cotton rat, and the roof rat. Depending upon the area you live or work, you could be subject to infestation from any of these common rodents in Arizona. Unfortunately, there is no ONE control for all these rodents, as they all have different needs for survival. Control is varied as well, some rodents are occasional invaders and prefer outside, in your barbeque or even your car engine, and others will move right in your home or business and cohabitate with you.
Can I do it myself?
We understand many people will try the do-it-yourself methods and set traps and or baits, but as professionals we know there is a bit more to it than that. Sometimes, the homeowners or the past 3 companies trying to solve the problem, can create a troublesome pest that is now trap-shy, won’t eat the bait, or avoids traps that didn’t work the first time. As one of the best in the business, we can solve the tough rodent issues – like nobody else.
What kind of damage do rodents cause?
All rodents can track germs and diseases throughout your home or business with their urine and droppings that are frequently deposited, which can be harmful to your family and pets. More serious damage is caused by the chewing, rodents must continually chew to keep their teeth from growing too much, and with this behavior they can accidentally chew through electrical wires, causing fires and plumbing causing severe moisture damage and destruction. Our experts always look for signs of rodent damage, just give us a call to schedule an inspection.

I see holes in my oranges, grapefruits and pomegranates, what could that be?
A tell-tale sign of rodent activity (of the roof rat specifically) is the damage they cause to fruit grown locally. Damage to Citrus fruit is easily recognized as the roof rats literally chews a round hole and eats the fruit out of the middle leaving only the rind.
Why do I have roof rats in my yard?
Roof rats will eat many things but are drawn to the sweet fruits found in the many of our homes back yards. They will eat a variety of local things like nuts, avocado’s, peaches, apricots, figs, plums and mulberries to name a few easily grown things in Arizona yards. Many of our fruits produce a heavy crop, and are not harvested soon enough or at all, leaving a smorgasbord for hungry rodents, birds and other pests to enjoy. We highly recommend harvesting your fruit as soon as it is ripe and make sure to pick up fruit from the ground.
