Rodent Control Services

Common enough that nearly 4 in 10 homeowners have seen one in their home at some point, rodents like mice and rats are undeniably pests. Luckily, that means that rodent control will likely be available —and necessary—wherever you live. Because rodents tend to carry several diseases and therefore be a threat to the health and safety of humans and domestic pets, rodent control is an ongoing activity and pursuit, and a major part of our work at Wildlife X Team®.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, rats and mice can transmit over 35 diseases. Learn more about the diseases you can get from rodents below.

Directly Transmitted Diseases by Rodents

Directly transmitted rodent illnesses such as Hantavirus, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, and more are contracted by inhaling contaminated dust from droppings, handling rodent feces and urine, or handling the rodent directly.

Indirectly Transmitted Diseases by Rodents

Indirectly transmitted diseases from rodents, like Lyme disease, Colorado tick fever and more can be contracted through secondary parasites on rodents, like infected ticks, fleas, and mites.

The team at Wildlife X Team® knows the importance of rodent control and pest control services to protect your home from mice, rats, and other pests. Any homeowner who is facing rodent traffic should practice good home hygiene by getting rid of food scraps, keeping your home clean, sealing entryways, and contacting our service team to make sure these rodents are trapped, removed, and prevented for the last time.

What Problems do Rodents Cause in your Home?

We all know that rodents can damage your home, but how much damage can the little animals make? It may be more than you think.

Soiled Insulation

When rodents get into your attic, crawlspace, or walls, they will often get into your insulation. Insulation provides a warm place for them to have their nests. While they’re crawling through your insulation, they urinate and defecate which soils the insulation. This causes a couple of big issues for your home.

The first issue is that the insulation is no longer effective in protecting your home from temperature changes. Insulation keeps warm air in when it’s cold outside and keeps cool air in when it’s hot out. If your insulation isn’t working correctly, your home isn’t operating efficiently, which costs you a lot of money over the year.

Another issue that comes from soiled insulation is the health hazard it causes. Rodent feces and urine carry diseases, and when that’s sitting in your home, it is not good for your health. If you suspect you have rodents in your home, call the team at Wildlife X Team® to eradicate them.

Damaged Pipes and Electrical Wires

Rodents have teeth that do not stop growing. To keep themselves comfortable, they will chew on anything that they can find, including the pipes and wires in your home. This can cause costly damage, so it's important to eradicate any rodents before they find your water pipes or electrical wires.

Damaged Belongings

It's no secret that rodents get into your food, but what else will they damage? Rodents can get into your clothing, toiletries, bedding, and other personal belongings. They can ruin costly and sentimental items. The team at Wildlife X Team® will help you eradicate the rodents in your home before they ruin your favorite items. 

How to Know you Have Rodents in your Home

If you think you may have rodents living in your home, there are some signs you can look out for.

Rodent Sounds

You may know you have rodents in your home by some sounds you may hear. Common rodent sounds include scurrying, scratching, and small squeaks.

Rodent Droppings

Another sign that you have rodents in your home is if you find rodent droppings around. Droppings from mice and rats look very similar. They are tubular and dark brown and are roughly 1cm in length. You will often find a pile of them together.

Other signs

Other signs of rodents in your home include oil marks smeared on your walls and clumps of fur stuck to different surfaces.

How to Prevent Rodents from Entering your Home

The easiest way to prevent rodent damage is to prevent them from entering your home in the first place. Caulking and sealing any holes in your home is the best defense against wildlife.


It’s easy for small holes around windows and doors to go unnoticed, but the wildlife in your neighborhood is sure to find them! Rodents can often fit through a hole the size of a dime, making it easy for them to make their way into holes in your siding, soffits, crawlspace, and more. Having the experts at Wildlife X Team® with their trained eye evaluate your home for any holes will ensure your home stays wildlife-free.

Vent Screens

Vents for your attic and crawlspace are essential to keeping your home running smoothly. However, if they don’t have the proper screens over them, they can be an easy gateway for rodents to enter your home. The technicians at Wildlife X Team® can install vent screens that are rodent-proof to keep your home functioning properly while keeping wildlife outside where it belongs.
