Mice/Rodent Removal, Control, & Exterminator

Here are the cold, hard facts: Mice, rats, and rodents spread nasty diseases and parasites, putting you, your family, and co-workers at serious risk. 

If you have an infestation, you need mice exterminators now!

The problem is that you can’t serve an eviction notice on unwanted rodents invading your property. Only a pest control expert will solve this problem and help you reclaim your home.

What Risks Do Mice and Rodents Pose?

A fear of mice and rats is the seventh-most common phobia, and it’s not hard to see why. These dirty rodents:

  • Spread parasites and contaminate food surfaces in your home or business
  • Destroy walls, floorboards, baseboards, and other fixtures 
  • Circulate bacteria that can lead to several diseases

You can try and get rid of mice and rats yourself — perhaps by laying down a few traps or using rodent repellent from the grocery store.

But that won’t stop rodents from returning. Or prevent them from reproducing.

Mice and rats are known for being prolific breeders, resulting in large rodent populations that are difficult to control. You need to find the root cause of your infestation, which zaps up time and resources. That’s where a professional mice/rodent removal professional comes in!

How to Get of Mice and Rodents

Professional pest control solutions are a much better idea than trying to banish rodents from your home or business yourself. The best experts know how to solve this crisis with the right equipment and techniques, such as bait stations and ground-level seal-ups. Problem solved. 

The best pest control services will use different methods depending on the type of rodents that have infiltrated your property. 

Unfortunately, not all pest control companies in Maryland and Northern Virginia are the same. Some firms lack experience and expertise, while others charge you too much for their so-called “services.” You need an affordable solution that removes rodents once and for all. 

Hiring a professional will:

  • Reduce health risks, including diseases from bacteria
  • Prevent rodents from damaging your property, saving you money on renovations
  • Save you time from having to deal with a pest infestation

We had no idea of the size of the nest that German Yellow Jackets had created in the attic of our garage.  Even Troy was amazed.  We considered waiting a few weeks for cold weather to deal with it.  Troy’s knowledge & experience was evident as he described what could happen in the worst case scenario.  He even said there are times when he advises people to do nothing and let nature run its course. Keeping in mind the disaster that might’ve happened, Troy’s fee was very reasonable. He completed the job in a short period of time.  I would never advise a homeowner to tackle such a problem on his own. We are glad we called him. We are very pleased with the results.

Pest shield, Troy Yowell and the entire pest shield staff provided exceptional service! We had a yellow jacket nest in the wall. Troy located it and fixed the problem in one efficient session. It was a difficult job but he made it easy for us. He is extremely responsive and helpful about answering my questions by text. If we ever have a pest problem again my first call will be to pest shield.

Rob came to our house to take care of a European Hornet nest in our chimney. He explained what he was going to do, and took care of the problem quickly. We will surely use Pest Shield the next time we have a problem.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Troy was very professional, honest & his work was effective! Our home is under contract and we had to ensure our yellowjacket issue was resolved with little to no damage done. After many failed treatments with another company resulting in the bees getting inside our walls, we decided to find an expert. The Google reviews speak for themselves! TROY is the real deal! Super responsive, educated us on all the possibilities of our issue, treatment & possible results. Warranty is great even though so far we have no need to use it thus far. He even called to check on us after his treatment to ensure everything was resolved. Good customer service is hard to come by but Troy provided AMAZING customer service! Don’t waste your time or stress call Troy!

My wife and I discovered a yellow jackets nest in our siding had moved inside our bedroom wall. Bees were starting to come into the bedroom through the baseboards and window. We called a few large companies first who tried to sell us on an initial price followed by 7 months of service. We’re glad we called Troy at Pest Shield. He gave us a low quote and even stood by it after noticing we had one of the larger nests he had come across this year. Troy was professional going over everything he was going to do while providing us options. We are no longer hearing bees in the wall and the outside activity has dwindled to a bee here or there. Nothing is choosing to go back where Troy sprayed. We really appreciate being bee free again.

Quick response to my inquiry. Quick scheduling as well! I had yellow jacket nests and a big hornet nest. Troy was professional and prompt. Took care of all 3 areas where I had issues. I think the price was more than fair for the issues. I feel comfortable in my yard again. A week later and I don't see any signs of yellow jackets or hornets around. Great service - all around. Thank you!!!

I highly recommend Troy and Pest Shield Inc.! Troy was polite, professional, explained things in detail, charged me what he had quoted on the phone, even though the job was more entailed than he originally thought, AND he showed up early!😊 Troy exterminated at least 2 German Yellow Jacket nests in my gas fireplace bump out. He assured me if I happen to see any bees going in and out, I can simply call him, and he will come back out, but Troy and I are pretty confident that the bees are all dead😊 They were about to get through my dry wall and into my home. So, Troy was a lifesaver!

Troy of Pest Shield was the only pest contractor willing to provide services to take down a basketball size hornets nest. All other contractors said it was too high being at a 3rd floor townhouse rafter. Troy was on time, profession and very efficient. He was also very respectful and polite. I couldn't believe how reasonable Pest Shields rates were! Awesome job Troy! Thank you!

Highly recommend Troy Yowell with Pest Shield, Inc. We found 2 bee nests on our property, Yellow Jackets in Powder Room exhaust fan vent and Bone Faced Hornets on Soffit. Troy was able to treat and remove both.
