How Modern Pest Resolves Rodent Problems

At Modern Pest Control, our licensed and certified pest technicians have over 70 years of experience providing safe and effective rodent control and rodent removal to Katy, and the surrounding area. If you’re experiencing a rodent infestation, or you are afraid you could be at risk, let us help you take back your property - and keep it protected for the future.

Modern Pest offers complete residential and commercial rodent control in Houston by following a proven three-step system for rodent exclusion:


After contacting us for a consultation, one of our licensed and trained pest control technicians will conduct a thorough inspection of your property to diagnose any signs of animal or pest presence. After determining potential entry points such as breezeways, utility access points, or openings along the roofline, he or she will be able to quote a price for rodent removal based on the size and severity of the infestation.


Based on our findings, we’ll implement a plan to target any rodents or other pests inside your structure. For rodents, this means utilizing strategically-placed trapping devices to target the source of the infestation.


With all the rodents on the premises trapped, we’ll then exclude them from the home or business before sealing any active openings or potential pest points using heavy gauge screens and metal screws. We won’t just conduct through measures for rodent removal, we’ll keep it from ever coming back.

How to Tell if Mice are Gone? 

Determining whether mice have been effectively eradicated from your Texas residence is essential to maintain a safe and healthy living space. Here are some signs to look for to confirm that mice are gone:

  • No Sightings: One of the most obvious signs that mice are gone is the absence of sightings. If you no longer spot mice running about your home or discover signs of their presence, like droppings, this likely means the infestation has been addressed.
  • No Droppings or Urine Smells: Fresh droppings and urine smells are telltale signs of an active mouse infestation. If you no longer discover fresh droppings or notice any persistent urine odors, it suggests that the mice have been eliminated.
  • No Gnaw Marks or Damage: Mice are known for chewing on a variety of items, including furniture, walls, and electrical wiring. If you no longer find new gnaw marks or damage around your home, it suggests that the mice have been eradicated.
  • No Nesting Materials: Mice use various materials like paper, fabric, and insulation to build their nests. If you no longer come across these materials spread throughout your home, it indicates that the mice have been eliminated.
  • Pest Control Follow-up: If you've enlisted the services of a professional pest control company like Modern Pest Control, they will typically schedule a follow-up visit to assess the effectiveness of the treatment and ensure that the mice are indeed gone.

If you've noticed these signs and are confident that the mice are gone, it is still advisable to take preventive measures to keep them from returning. Maintain a mouse-free home by sealing any entry points, keeping your home clean, storing food airtight, and getting regular pest control services.

Greater Houston Rodent Prevention Tips

With so much at stake, you can’t afford to leave your home at risk of rodent infestation. Here are some quick prevention tips to safeguard your Houston-area property against rats and mice:

  • Know What To Look For: Inspect your home thoroughly for tell-tale signs of rodent infestation, including droppings, gnaw marks, fur, nesting material, shredded paper or insulation, signs of chewing on food packaging, and holes in walls or flooring. Many homeowners with rodent infestations also report a stale smell throughout the house. If you find rodents inside your house, especially in the daytime, it’s an almost certain sign of a larger rodent problem.
  • Know Where To Look: Inspect common areas for rodent biting or nesting in your home, including around walls and flooring, baseboards, furniture, attic spaces, the garage, in and around plumbing, behind wall voids, in crawl spaces, and in any areas with stacks of clothing or other potential nesting material. Outside the house, check the exterior foundation, walls, gutters, and roof.
  • Know When To Look: Rodents are primarily nocturnal, so consider re-inspecting your home with a flashlight at night. Likewise, keep an ear out for any signs of scratching or gnawing as it could lead you to the source of the infestation.
  • Eliminate Food Sources: Deny rodent invaders of any food or water source. Keep all food around the house in sealed containers (including pet food) or in the refrigerator. Don’t leave garbage cans out for too long, as the food left inside can attract unwanted house guests, and vacuum regularly to keep crumbs off the floor.
  • Call A Professional: Unfortunately, most home and business owners aren’t equipped to fully eliminate a rodent infestation on their own. It’s always best to call a certified professional to help with permanent rodent removal.
