If you are seeing changes in your home or property that involve holes in the walls or ceilings, it could be an indication a rodent has invaded your space. They are pesky mammals with sharp incisor teeth that gnaw into wood and other building materials. The most common invaders in the home are mice. You don’t have to see one first hand to know that they are creeping into your living area unsuspectingly. They leave behind subtle, yet tell-tale signs that they have been making themselves comfortable in your cozy home.
Missing pieces of floor board, drywall, and insulation can be strewn around your home. Broken bags of food in the kitchen are also a sign that they have ripped through packaging or tried to find a place to create a warm, burrowing nest. Feces are also an initial sign of rats. Small, oval black droppings can be found along baseboards, inside cabinets and anywhere else mice are entering the home. Calling rat removal service and getting rid of these pesky critters at the first sign of their presence will prevent a widespread infestation.
Rats and mice are two of the most economically damaging pests in the world, ranking alongside with termites. They cause damage on property and materials like food products, paper and cardboard, clothing, wood and some plastics. They also chew on electrical wires.
Moreover, rodents are vectors of various diseases. The foul odor of their urine and faeces are terrible enough to make one throw up, develop an allergy or worse, cause infectious diseases. As foul as they can be, they are dangerous for contaminating food, thus causing food poisoning and transmitting deadly illnesses and diseases like plague, Rickettsial Pox, hantavirus, rat bit fever, leptospirosis, among others.
It is always important to keep a clean surrounding and removing food and water litter which rodents could feed upon. More importantly, concerned owners should contact a professional rodent pest control expert for treatment and service. A professional pest exterminator can help ensure the cleanliness of your property and will do everything to keep your property free of rats and mice.
