Services: Rodent Control

Rodent Control & Removal Services in Utah

Rodents deposit 25-75 droppings a day as well as thousands of micro droplets of urine.

They are harmful to our health and can damage a businesses reputation. Rodents contaminate food and they scare tenants and guests. Luckily we are here to help eliminate these pests.

Rodent Control

We take a scientific approach to rodent control.

Eliminating rodents can be difficult and if done wrong can make things much worse, allow the rodents to increase in numbers and infest new areas, and run unchecked throughout a facility. Understanding the biology of the rodents and the science of their control is critical to getting the best results.

Let Thorn help you remove those rodents for good. Contact us today!

Rodent Monitoring

It’s important to proactively monitor for rodents. Thorn uses bar codes and the latest technology to track rodent activity and provide you with clear documentation so you know exactly what is happening. We can also react quickly and stop new infestations.

Rodent Inspections

Detailed inspection is critical for successful control of rodents including house mouse and rats. Rodents are attracted to shadows, warmth, smells, and tight spaces that offer protection from predators. We need to identify these conditions that attract rodent activity. The better the inspection, the better the results.

Rodent Exclusion

One of the best control strategies for mice and rats is to identify entry points and seal them up stopping rodents from getting inside. We call this exclusion. Thorn can help keep rodents out.

Rodent Trapping

Rodent control isn’t just setting out a few traps and hoping you will catch them. Hope is not a great strategy especially when every day each mouse is depositing about 75 droppings and 1,000s of micro droplets of urine. By assessing the situation and understanding rodent biology we can place traps in the right spots for quick control.


It’s all about the right spot.

Rodent control is all about keen observation, understanding rodent biology, and then placing devices in the right spot. Traps placed just a few feet or even inches from the right spot is the difference between success and failure.

How common is the problem in Utah?

The house mouse is arguably the most successful mammal on the planet and their numbers continue to grow every year. The house mouse is extremely common and problematic in Utah impacting thousands of Utahns every year. House mice contaminate food, spread pathogens, and create allergens in the air. You should not tolerate mice in your home or business. 

Common types of rodents or mice in Utah

The most common rodents in Utah in and around structures are the house mouse, the norway rat, and the deer mouse. Voles are often found around structures but rarely enter them. They can however be very destructive to lawns. 

What attracts mice to some places?

Smells, warmth, food, and predator protection all drive rodents into our man made structures including our homes, schools, restaurants, hospitals, hotels, and work places. These rodents have adapted to living with humans. We create the perfect environments for them. 

Signs you may need a rodent control professional

Rodents negatively impact your health and should not be tolerated in homes or businesses. If you find rodent droppings, food that has been chewed on, or see a rodent call a pest professional to help. Other signs may be a little more difficult for an untrained professional to spot but include urine, sebum (body oil) marks, gnawing, and rodent hair. 

It's time to be rodent-free.
