Looking for a Rat and Mice Exterminator?
Do you think you might have a rodent in your house or office? Rats and mice are the last critters you want to find scurrying around your home. Rodents are very unsettling to have around. They can carry diseases, get into your food, and leave droppings in your home. If you suspect a rodent infestation, you need pest and rodent control services.
How do you know which type of rodent is in your home? Size and head shape are your best clues: Mice are generally smaller, at around 12 to 20 centimeters, while rats measure closer to 40 centimeters. Rat heads are heavy and larger in proportion to their body than a mouse’s head, which is tiny and triangular, along with having a pointed nose and bigger ears.
Whatever kind of rodents you have, a professional rat and mice exterminator can help you get rid of them.
How Do Rodents Get in Houses?
Rats and mice are surprisingly limber and can squeeze in through a tiny opening that is only a quarter of an inch wide. They can get into your home through:
- Cracks in walls
- Gaps around windows
- Holes in roofs
When your home is inspected by professional pest and rodent control service providers, your exterminator can help you identify how the rodents are entering and how to prevent future unwelcome mice and rats from getting in.
Dangers of Rodents in Your House
Along with being disturbing, rats and mice can pose real hazards to your health and property, including:
- Diseases: Hantavirus, listeria, salmonellosis, and rat-bite fever
- Allergies: Triggered by urine and droppings
- Property damage: Destruction of insulation, cardboard, and even wood, along with holes in exterior walls, which can make your home less efficient and more open to other pests
- Fire risks: Caused by rodents gnawing on electrical wiring and exposing them, which can lead to highly increased chances of fire accidents
- Food contamination: Can include the ruin of valuable food storage
With all of the problems that come from having rodents in your home, you need to get rid of them right away. Call a rat and mice exterminator, and prevent future infestations.
