Don’t Let Rodents Move into Your Home

Typically rodents like to live where humans live. They enjoy the same type of comfortable conditions and usually try to seek habitation in homes. Rodents are a challenge to control. There is no more serious menace to your home. If you find that you have rodents inhabiting your home, you need serious rodent control in Plano, TX.

Understanding the Different Types of Rodents


Rodents are more than just rats, although rats are rather bothersome. They tend to be very wary of new things around them such as rat traps. Rats can be found hiding in attics, under porches, concrete, in wall voids, and in burrows. Essentially rats tend to inhabit places that are very hard to reach. It is important to have rats removed from your home because they can transmit serious diseases and introduce ticks and fleas into a home. Mice are another type of rodent that can be found sneaking into homes and infiltrating them. Not only do they leave their feces everywhere, they can contaminate your food. They find their way into homes when seeking food and water. The rodent family itself has over 2,000 species. Setting a rat or mouse trap is not enough. You need to call a trusted extermination company for a free inspection if you believe you have a rodent infestation.

Rodents Can Cause Significant Damage


Rodents tend to have oversized teeth that are especially adapted for chewing and gnawing. They can chew on a variety of items including the plaster, insulation, and wood in your home. Not only does this bring down the value of your home, it is also annoying to hear them scurrying and chewing at one of the biggest investments you may ever make. They are rapid breeders that can fit into holes as small as a dime. It takes more than just setting traps to stop this type of infestation, you need rodent control specialists.

You Should Not Try to Handle a Wild Rodent


Always let wildlife exterminators handle any rodent problem in your home. Since most rodents tend to have large teeth they can do a lot of damage if they bite, this includes transmitting different types of bacteria, diseases, and viruses. They can also transmit serious health problems through their urine, feces, and saliva. The professionals know how to handle such infestations and can accurately identify the type of rodent. If you see just one rodent, keep in mind there may also be quite a few others. Children and pets should especially be kept from rodents.
