When you’re thinking about buying a property, it’s important to know you are making a sound investment decision by not buying a home with rodents, attic infestation. There are two inspections that buyers should commission for any property they are intending to buy; a pre-purchase building inspection and a pre-purchase rodent inspection.
Why do you need a pre-purchase rodent inspection?
Pre-purchase inspections, in general, are designed to determine the condition of the house before making a decision to purchase the property. At Rodents Stop we have taken this one step further by determining if the home in question has had or could potentially have a rodent infestation problem. Our rodent control experts determine if there are any major issues (big or small) that will need to be remedied and as a safeguard, something you want to be well informed about as rodents can cause several thousands of dollars in damage to attics, walls, etc.
Do I need both a building and rodent inspection?
It is important to remember a building inspection is separate to a rodent inspection. Although there is a bit of overlap in the content of these two inspections, there are some significant differences, which is why it is important to have both a building inspection and rodent control inspection before buying a property as general inspections would not identify future problems you may possibly have with the property being vulnerable to rodent infestation.
When do you need these inspections?
These inspections are carried out before the buyer completes the purchase of the property. and is subject to a clean/pass inspection report. This means they are carried out before placing an offer on a property or during the cooling off period. This allows the buyer to re-negotiate the price if required (depending on the findings of the inspection) or even pull out of the deal if the problems are a deal breaker for the buyer.
If you are purchasing a home and would like a pre-purchase home inspection for rodents, call Rodents Stop today.

I had a recurrent problem of rats winding up in my attic and had tried a couple of other pest control services over a few years, with the problem always recurring after a short while. I decided to give Rodents Stop a try after reading some of the reviews here on Yelp. They came out and explained how the (essentially temporary) measures I'd taken before would never really keep the rats away for good, due to the scents/pheromones that were remaining in my attic (leading them to keep trying to find ways in).

For months I denied the overwhelming reality-I had a major rat infestation! And all my efforts to quell the populating rodents were in vain. After the rats had chewed into my couch trying to get the food left behind by my kids, that's when I knew the problem was bigger than I could handle by myself. All the rat traps, from mechanical to electronic were no match for nature biggest little beasts. It was like trying to get Miley Cyrus to just go away, it's just not gonna happen.

They check the entire perimeter of your home--top to bottom--to ensure it is completely closed off to any future unwanted guests. They will make as many house calls as needed to address customer concerns. Seriously, give these guys a call. You won't regret it!

These guys really know what their doing.
I had an ongoing problem for about 6 months, I could not sleep at night, my dog was driving me crazy. They came out and did their famous rodent treatment. No noises for about a month.
Thank you guys.

Zeev, Heather, Ivan and the rest of the team are fantastic!
We knew there was some rodent activity in our attic, but didn't do anything about it until the nasty critters got into our home and actually chewed a hole in the hard plastic elbow of our dishwasher drain line!
We called Rodent Stop, and Zeev came out for an inspection and gave us a quote the very next day. We were relieved to have a plan of attack, and Ivan and his team took over the next morning. They started early, and by mid-afternoon had cleared away all evidence of the rodent activity (including all the scent trails). In addition to getting rid of the existing evidence, the team had patched up all of the access points, and left some traps in all the areas that had shown prior signs of activity to avoid future activity.
It has been a week, and we are ecstatic with the results. While we heard some scratching activity the first few days (which was likely coming from outside where Ivan's team had patched some access points), the scratching has now ceased.
Zeev came back yesterday, and confirmed that all of the "inside" traps -- i.e., those in enclosed spaces (i.e., our living quarters, the attic and crawlspace) -- remain armed and undisturbed, which indicates to us that the patching did the trick. The only trap that went off is in an outdoor shed that needs overall repair, and can't be made rodent proof at this time. That trap did catch one mouse, which was removed and the trap replaced.
Assuming there is no further activity between now and Friday, we'll move forward with the new insulation in the attic, and be done -- all in very short order.
Thanks Rodent Stop!!!

Rodents Stop made a lot of promises when they first came out, I thought it was to good to be true but wow, what an amazing service.
From the office staff to the employees actually doing work. My problem was on going for about 2 years, I know right, who would deal with something for that long, the truth is that I tried other companies and they really didn't do much. Not to mention they didn't solve my problem. All other companies know how to do is set traps, they don't clean up, they don't seal openings, and they don't spray for disease.
Also no one offers a life time guarantee like rodents stop. I like that. I feel like I just moved into a new house.
It's been 2 months now and I'm actually getting some sleep at night.
No dead rats in traps, no flies, nothing to do with rats or mice what's so ever. Thanks Rodents stop.

I emailed them a couple of times desperate for service. It says they service the Los Angeles area (which should include Bellflower). I'm disabled and live alone with my small dog. I've been fighting mice for 2.5 years but am in desperate need for someone who really knows what they are doing and has a lifetime warranty because my dog and I have become infested with some kind of parasites that the mice brought in. I have several lesions and a huge infection on my back from the parasites. I left them my email and phone number with no response. I can't find another company with their experience, ratings, and guarantee and I'm really desperate for help and really disappointed they haven't contacted me.
Again I emailed you last night, and got zero response today. I don't get it. As long as I give you the review you want, you ignore me? But as soon as you don't like my rating, you'll move heaven and earth to talk to me??

We're selling our house and we needed to get take care of the mess that rats had done to our attic. Zev came out the next day and gave a fair quote for the job. The Rodents Stop crew came out the day after and took care of cleaning and patching the whole house in a timely manner. They were all very professional and very thorough. Heather on the phone was extremely delightful to deal with also. I highly recommend them!
