Rodent Control Service in Central Massachusetts


Get Help from Expert Rat Exterminators

Rodents don’t need an invitation to set up shop in your home. In fact, all they need is a hole as small as a dime. Here at Ransford Pest Control, our rat exterminators have spent over a century perfecting our rodent control in Massachusetts because we know how destructive rodents can be. Once they’re in, these pests can cause immense damage to your home. If a rat is carrying a tick that has Lyme disease or mice carry fleas, they might introduce it to your environment, which can put you and your loved ones at risk.

Other common rodent-related problems include the following:

  • Contamination of food
  • Damaged attics and insulation
  • Chewed electrical wires
  • And more risks 

Types of disease contracted from rodent activity in homes:

  • Lyme Disease– If a mouse or a rat bites you; you could be at risk of getting Lyme disease. The symptoms of this disease include the appearance of skin lesions, fever, and headache.
  • Salmonella– If mice or rats got into your home and left feces on some of your food or even on some of your kitchen counters or utensils; there is a chance that you can get salmonella. Symptoms of this disease include intestinal disorders like diarrhea and nausea.
  • Rat Bite Fever– If a mouse or rat bites you or scratches you; you might contract rat-bite fever. This disease comes from bacteria lying on the mouth or nose of a rodent and can cause a relapsing fever that can last months.
  • Hantavirus– If a mouse leaves behind traces of feces, urine, or other bodily fluids there is a chance that you could get Hantavirus. This disease causes flu-like symptoms, renal failure, and severe respiratory distress.

Types of Rodents in Our Area


A family of 6 mice can grow to 50-60 mice in 90 days. Mice in Massachusetts will burrow into homes, porches, decks, attics, and crawl spaces. They can access your home through an opening the size of a dime. They find their way into kitchens, pantries, and food storage areas. Mice are excellent climbers. They are omnivores and will eat almost anything. They can cause a lot of damage to insulation, wiring, and wood. Call 508-756-5197 for trusted mice exterminators.


Rats can be a problem even in newer buildings with excellent sanitation. Rats will eat practically anything humans eat. They will eat from gardens, trees even ornamental shrubs and flowers. Rats can contaminate whatever they come in contact with. They can gnaw plastic, cinder block, wood, and upholstery.

  • Keep Them Out: The single best way to prevent rats is to keep them out in the first place. Look around for problems like broken windows, holes in the siding or the foundation, damaged spots where they might squeeze through, and more. The goal is to keep them out, and it doesn’t take much to let them in. They can climb quite high to get in, and if you have holes bigger than a pencil, you may already be letting them in your house. Either fill these holes on your own or hire a contractor to do it for you. A rat exterminator can also help you spot any places that might be of concern.
  • Clean Up: Pests want those crumbs your toddler dropped all over the living room. They’d love to climb into your trash can and grab the leftovers. They’ll even head for your compost bin outside for food. Make sure you keep things clean as much as possible. Sweep and mop on a regular basis, keep a lid on your trash cans, and be sure that you’re following proper composting procedures if you’re putting food scraps in there.
  • Stay Proactive: If you’re not consistently looking for problems outside your home or keeping things clean inside your home, you could be inviting future problems. Remain vigilant to help keep pests away.
