Rodents in Andover, MA
Since rodents are larger pests than others, they can cause significant damage to your home and if left alone too long, can make a home unlivable. They love to rummage in cabinets and refrigerators where food is stored. They also leave their droppings behind creating a smelly, unsightly mess. If you suspect a rodent infestation, but haven't seen them yet, here are some signs to watch out for. You will most likely find the droppings and urine puddles first. If you hear squeaks, rustling, and scampering noises, they could very well be from mice or rats. If you see nibble or gnaw marks on food packages, it's probably due to these creatures bumming a snack from your home. They can also leave grease marks from the oil and dirt in their coats, a musty odor, and dusty footprints.
Getting rid of these pests can start with setting traps, the traditional clamp kind which break the mouse or rat's neck or the glue kind which stick their feet to the trap and prevent them from moving. If these vermin are in the wall, professionals like us are needed to either lure them out or create an opening in the wall to remove them and then seal it back up when we're done. Once the rodents have been removed, disinfecting with bleach and water is recommended, using rubber gloves for cleaning and trash bags for contaminated materials. Then wash your hands thoroughly and open some windows for ventilation to air things out.
Squirrels are another troublesome rodent, responsible for causing extensive damage to your building or home by gnawing through building materials and insulation. Squirrel exclusion is the best way to permanently control a squirrel infestation. We will provide a thorough inspection to determine how they are getting into the building/home, humanely remove the squirrels, and seal off any holes in your building or home's structure, making further squirrel infestations unlikely. We can perform squirrel exclusion for the common grey squirrels or flying squirrels.
Mice, rats, squirrels and other rodents can chew wires in your home, resulting in a fire hazard. If you feel you have any rodents present or are woken to a flying squirrel or other rodent, feel free to call our office to ask us about our "A.S.A.P. Service."

Always a positive experience with Mike and crew. They always strive to resolve issues I present without conflict. Thanks
Mistakenly thought they got bought out, owner was very polite and courteous. Would highly recommend.
Andover Pest Control always has great customer service and is very fast in getting things done! Great tick and mosquito treatments in the Summer worked tremendously!
This is my third time using them. Every time has been a GREAT experience!! Top notch people and company. Previously we had Mike and another guy and they were able to track down the path and source of the ants. They resolved the issue and we have not seen an ant in the house for about 2 years. We saw a couple this past month and we called Andover Pest Control again. Matt came out and investigated for issues and the path. He explained and showed me the issues. He treated the entire house and the path of ants. He also identified where a woodpecker is attacking our house to feed on the insects. He gave me some great ideas if the woodpecker comes back. Matt was awesome. If you have any pest issues, you should call Andover Pest Control. I AM!!
Polite, efficient and effective!
First ants, then mites. I had a bad carpenter ant problem this year. We see them every year, but this was unprecedented. Mike called me back quickly and the exterminator arrived on time. Took a little more than 2 weeks, but we haven't seen a single one since, inside or out. When I found something that looked like termites, I called them up again. Once again, on time and professional. Just mites, thankfully. I'll have to add honesty to their list of qualities.
Mike from Andover Pest Control was great! He came within 45 minutes of my phone call on a Saturday. I called four other places and couldn't even get a person to answer a phone at that time. While he was at our house he took care of three large wasp nests. Mike even went a step further for us and used spray foam to block off the place where the wasps were entering the house so we didn't have to worry about them coming back. He also found a bat in the attic that we didn't even know was there. Mike was friendly, knowledgeable, and his pricing was excellent for the immediate service that we received. We will absolutely be using him again in the future and recommend his services to others.
We have not seen any ants so are very well pleased with the results!
