Rodent Control in Santa Rosa
Managing Rodent Problems in Napa, Sonoma & Marin Counties
Rats, mice, and other rodents are common pests in the Bay Area. These small mammals often enter homes and other buildings to escape harsh environmental conditions, find food or water, nest, and breed. Because they reproduce very quickly and in large quantities, a seemingly minor rodent problem can soon become a full-blown infestation. All it takes is one male and one female rodent to create a massive problem.
At We Care Pest Solutions, we offer comprehensive rodent control in Santa Rosa and all of the surrounding areas. Our eco-friendly, effective solutions are designed to target pests while reducing risks to humans, pets, non-targeted organisms, and the general environment. In addition to ridding your home or business of rodents, we also employ proven techniques, such as integrated pest management, to prevent future infestations.
Signs of a Rodent Infestation
While you may spot a mouse or rat in your home, it’s far more common to see rodent droppings. In fact, droppings are often the first sign of a rodent problem—and where there is one rodent, there are likely many more.
If you notice any of the following signs, you could have a rodent infestation:
- Droppings on the floor, in cupboards, in drawers, under sinks, and near food sources
- Chew or gnaw marks on food packaging, as well as holes chewed through packages
- Rodent nests or nesting material, such as shredded fabric, paper, or plant materials
- Unusual, stale odors coming from various areas, such as under sinks or behind walls
- Scratching, clawing, or squeaking noises coming from inside walls, pipes, or other hidden areas
- Holes with signs of chewing or scratching in the walls, doors, or floors of your home or business
If you actually see a mouse or rat in your home or commercial building, it’s possible that just one rodent has managed to enter your property. However, if you remove the mouse or rat and continue seeing signs of rodents, such as droppings, you most likely have an infestation.

The Dangers of a Rodent Infestation
Though many people keep mice and rats as pets, it’s a different story when undomesticated rodents enter your home or commercial property. Wild rodents can carry diseases, many of which can be harmful to humans (and pets). Even breathing in contaminated air can lead to disease transmission between rodents and humans. Being bitten or scratched by a wild rodent can also cause injury and disease, as can consuming food that has been contaminated by mice or rats or coming into direct contact with rodent feces or urine.
Some common diseases carried by wild rodents include:
- Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV)
In addition to spreading disease, wild rodents can wreak havoc on your property. Excessive gnawing, chewing entry holes, and nesting can lead to structural damage, which may jeopardize the safety of your home or commercial building. This could ultimately end up costing you thousands of dollars in repairs and renovations.

If you believe you may have a rodent infestation at your home or commercial property, you should contact a professional pest control company right away. At We Care Pest Solutions, we can quickly come out to your property and assess the problem to determine if you have one or two wandering rodents or a largescale infestation. We offer a range of rodent control services in Santa Rosa and the nearby areas, all of which are designed to address the root of the problem and prevent unwanted pests from coming back.
Our rodent control services include integrated pest management (IPM), a pest control strategy that combines various proven methods that, when combined, provide effective and long-lasting infestation management and prevention. Common methods used in IPM include biological control, environmental and habitat management, physical/mechanical controls, and strategies designed to curb reproduction, establishment, dispersal, and survival.
