Rats and Mice
Rats and mice are common rodents found in residences and businesses. These rodents are constantly on the hunt for water food sources and shelter. If there are food and water sources continuously left out and easily accessible, these pests may come crawling. If rats or mice get into your food, it can be contaminated. These rodents are also known to carry diseases such as Hantavirus, Monkeypox, and more.
Do I need rodent control?
Rodent infestation can happen when you least expect it, but it’s still important to handle a rodent infestation safely and efficiently. Attempting to treat rodent infestation without professional help can pose risks, as coming into contact with rodents can put you at risk of catching a disease. Waiting to treat rodent infestation can lead to damage in and around your home whether it’s in your garden or chewed utility cables.
Signs of Rodent Infestation
Rodent infestation is often discovered by evidence left behind. For instance, the most common signs of rodent or mouse infestation are droppings, signs of chewing on food packaging, and holes chewed through floors and walls. Often, if you have rodent infestation you can also hear them running around in the walls.
For gophers, the majority of the signs will be outside in your landscape. Gophers leave behind dirt mounds that are fan-shaped and often chew on vegetation.
