Rodent Extermination

A rodent infestation can mean double trouble for your property and the health of your family. Mice, rats, and other rodents can cause physical damage to your home, but are also known to carry and transmit diseases. Be aware of these signs that you may have a rodent infestation:

  • Rodent Droppings - This is an obvious sign of a rodent presence. Rodent droppings look like little brown pellets, and can often be found in cupboards or other hard-to-reach places rodents could sneak though. The quantity and size of the droppings can be an indication of the severity of the infestation.
  • Nesting Materials - Rodents are prolific reproducers, and being such, they often build nests. If you notice small collections of materials like fabric, shredded paper, or grass, it could be signs of rodent activity.
  • Damaged Food & Packaging - Take time to examine any boxes or bags of food in cupboards and pantries. If you notice any chewed-on or damaged items, it could also be an indication of a rodent presence in your home.
  • Unusual Odors - Rodents tend to urinate frequently, and have little regard for where they do so. Rodent urine has a strong ammonia smell that should be noticeable in smaller areas or rooms, like laundry rooms or pantries. If you’re looking for trouble, follow your nose.

1st Choice Pest Solutions is especially equipped to handle any rodent or vermin related problem. We employ a detailed process to finding and eliminating rodents in your home, and fortify your residence against future infestations in the process. Our goal is not only to rid you of your rodent problem, but to reduce the risk of another infestation happening in the future.

Here are some of the rodents 1st Choice Pest Solutions commonly deals with:

  • Rat
  • Field Mouse
  • Deer Mouse
  • Shrew

Insect Extermination In Eau Claire

Having a rodent or a bird problem in your home is a nuisance, but when you have unwanted pests invading the space in which you sleep, then it’s personal. Don’t put up with pests like bedbugs, ants, cockroaches, or fleas. 1st Choice Pest Solutions is prepared to come to the rescue and eliminate insect pests from your home. We offer extermination services for:

Bed Bugs

These tiny pests invade the most personal space in your home- your bedroom. If you believe you’re dealing with bed bugs, contact 1st Choice Pest Solutions immediately. These pests multiply quickly and in large numbers, so a prompt treatment and removal is vital.


The first place you’re likely to notice ants is near any place that you store food, especially the kitchen. Once a food source is discovered by ants, they flock to it in mass numbers. It is likely that you have an infestation in or around your home if you notice large numbers of ants.


These insects are tricky because they are primarily nocturnal, meaning they are active at night. If you turn on a light in a dark room and see scurrying cockroaches, contact us as soon as possible, and we’ll send these vermin packing.

Wasps & Stinging Insects

Seeing the occasional wasp or bee is perfectly normal, as they are most likely just going about their buzzy business. However, if you notice a large concentration of stinging insects, particularly wasps, it may be time to contact 1st Choice Pest Solutions. It is important for people with potentially severe allergies to the sting of these insects to let professional pest exterminators and removal experts handle these insects. Your safety is of the utmost concern when we are working in and around your home.

Other Insects

This list of insect offenders isn’t comprehensive, but our team of pest control experts is well-versed and trained in the life cycles and habits of all insects that cause problems in and around Eau Claire. Other common pests that we treat include:

  • Millipedes
