House Map

Interior

Interior rodent infestation usually comes from the other entry points, but they easily could have come in from doors and windows. Alley Cat provides a full home inspection and rodent proofing service to ensure that rodents stay excluded! Learn More

Garage

Garages are ideal places for rodents to create nests due to the proximity to warmth, food, and water. Alley Cat inspects garage spaces thoroughly to make sure all entry points are sealed. Learn More

Attic

Attics are a big target for rodents because of three main points: accessible entry points, warmth, and food. Alley Cat is ready to inspect your attic and prepare our findings and rodent proofing solutions! Learn More

Crawl space / Basement

Under the home attracts rodents due to how warm, damp, and protected from the elements it is. Crawl spaces and basements give them access to insulation, wiring, and air ducts, which can lead to health and fire hazards. Alley Cat investigates all areas under the home in order to tightly seal entry points as well as to sanitize it effectively. Learn More

Your home can be rodent-free immediately after the service if the rodents were outside while we proofed. But, if they were hiding while we did the proofing, it could take a couple more visits until we trap them and remove them completely. We offer a free re-inspection and a 1 year warranty for all our projects.
Alley Cat’s specialty is long term rodent exclusion. This means that the four step process is the best solution as we dispose of bio-materials, sanitize the areas, rodent proof the home, and trap any lingering rodents.
Alley Cat strives to provide premier quality in our service process for all our projects. One of our rodent exclusion staff can help you find the perfect rodent proofing package for your specific needs and budget. And, with every job, we also offer 3-year warranty in additional to a high caliber team. We can discuss your specific needs further during our FREE INSPECTION.
