Rodents are frustrating and stubborn pests. Not only can they enter your home through a hole as small as a dime, but once they’re in, they’ll get to work chewing wires, ruining food, and spreading diseases such as Hantavirus and salmonella . Why let them take over your home when a team of experts is only a call away? Here at ATCO Pest Control, we’ve spent over three decades designing a plan for rodent control that will eliminate these nasty pests in no time.
We can treat for a number of local rodents and other types of mammals, including the following:

As a locally owned company, we understand that rodents are a big cause for concern in the Bay Area—that's why our rodent control experts seek to solve the problem by identifying entry points and sealing them so rodents can't enter again. Most companies contract out the exclusion repairs, but at ATCO, we want to make everything as hassle-free as possible, so we train our experts on comprehensive rodent identification, control, and exclusion methods . Even better, we do not use poison with our rodent control methods—we use snap traps.
Our rodent control program includes:
Wondering if you need rodent control? Unfortunately, it can be easy to miss signs of rodents until after they’ve done damage to your home. While you can try to keep rodents away by trimming trees & shrubs and removing bird feeders , rats and mice often enter houses in search of food, shelter, and places to raise their young. They’ll typically set up camp in pantries, storage rooms, and cabinets,
If they’re in your house for a while, you’ll begin to notice these common signs:
Our rodent exterminators are trained to identify, remove, and exclude all types of rodents—this includes the bigger rodents that not many people think would be in the Bay Area!
Moles are a small species of rodent that tend to tunnel along the surface of the ground, with their tunnels often being found along walkways and planters. While they’re unlikely to invade your home, these pests can damage your lawn’s health and appearance with their tunnels. Moles are typically after lawn insects like grubs, worms, and other underground pests. For our mole control in the Bay Area, our team at ATCO uses safe trapping and/or eco-friendly rodenticide bait that mimics a worm to eliminate these destructive pests.
Gophers are large rodents that create deep tunnels and crescent-shaped mounds in your yard, and they can be incredibly destructive by destroying sprinkler lines, underground wires, and more! Our team at ATCO relies on safely trapping to remove gophers in order to protect the beloved family and pets of our customers. The strength of the rodenticide needed to eliminate a gopher would be deadly to a cat or dog if they encountered it, and so we believe trapping is a wiser option for gopher control in the Bay Area.
When you’re dealing with a raccoon or skunk invasion, the first task that ATCO does is to identify how raccoons or skunks are getting into your house or attic. We can install one-way doors, and once the raccoon or skunk leaves a given space, we can seal it up so they can’t get back in. However, if they have young, we are prohibited by law from doing any remediation—we have to wait until the mother takes the babies and leaves, and at that point, we can get everything sealed. Our other treatment for raccoons is to put out netting in areas where the raccoons are pulling back the grass. If they can’t pull anything back, they become frustrated and they move on.
Often, a wildlife issue is caused by an underlying pest issue. For instance, raccoons will often tear up your lawn in search of grubs and other insects, so treating those pests can deter raccoons from visiting your property. To best prevent wildlife from coming to your yard, schedule a pest control service to treat your lawn and house.
Sometimes the only way you know you have rodents is by a foul smell, indicating there might be a dead animal in your attic, crawlspace, basement, or even in your walls. ATCO offers dead animal removal and remediation services to homeowners, governments, and commercial building owners. This includes rodents of all types, from rats, mice, and gophers, to raccoons, skunks, possums, squirrels, and birds.
