How To Identify If Rodents Are In Your Home and How to Get Rid Of Them

Having rodents find refuge in your home is more common than you think. It is not a sign of being uncleanly, but it is certainly something you must address. We have you covered. We have laid out all the information you need to identify if you have an infestation and what to do about it.

Signs of Mice and Rats in Your Home

Rats and mice can enter a home through very small crevices. They often enter your home because their outdoor home has been changed or removed by humans. They live in tall grasses and large fields near a water source. The field mouse doesn’t want to move to the city, but when their homes are taken over by humans, they are forced to relocate.

During the winter months, it is also more likely rodents will seek food, warmth and shelter from the cold.

Rodent feces is one of the best indicators you have rats or mice living among you. They often first enter through garages or sheds. Look for their feces in these places first.

How Rats and Mice Get Into Your Home

Nearby construction is one of the main causes of rats and mice moving in with you. Being aware of where new buildings will be built allows you to be proactive, so you do not end up with rodents living in your home.

Having an exterminator come out and prepare your home is an excellent way to prevent the problem.

Know of any construction about to begin near your home? Give us a call and schedule a time for us to come out and create a plan with you. You’ll be glad you did and will save yourself from having to deal with the more difficult and costly task of getting them to move out.

Prepare for them to especially seek shelter in the coming Winter months.

Dangers of Rat and Mice Infestations

Rodents are not cleanly animals. They can spread diseases and cause serious property damage once inside.

The mice and rat feces are full of bacteria. These bacteria can cause serious illnesses. These illnesses are particularly dangerous to young children, older adults and others with already compromised immune systems. Rodent feces can contaminate food sources and trigger allergic reactions in humans. Once the fecal matter becomes dry, it can be hazardous to those who breathe it in. Moreover, rodent droppings can spread diseases and viruses.

Some of the most well-known are Hantavirus, Bubonic Plague, Salmonellosis, and Rat-Bite Fever.

Rats and Mice can also create burrows in your home, chipping away at wood, the foundation, insulation and your walls. They are also known to destroy wiring. 

The Extermination Process Explained

Depending on where the rats or mice are located, we will:

  1. Eliminate entry points the rodents are using to get in.
  2. Use rat or mouse
  3. Choose the best bait for rat and mouse traps.
  4. Properly place rodent traps is critical.
  5. Set up bait stations.
  6. Analyze your sanitation. Good sanitation won’t get rid of mice or rats, but poor sanitation will attract them.
  7. Tackle the mice and rats in the house and outside on your property.

We come with an array of experience and individualize each plan to eradicate your rodent infestation. No two cases are the same and no two environments are alike.

Preventative Treatment is the Best Defense Against Unwanted Rodents

The best way to keep from ever having to deal with rat and mice infestations is to prevent them from happening.

We will come to your home and inspect it from the inside out. Searching for possible entry points, recent changes in the environment and new construction around your home is important.

Looking for small holes in walls, rat and mice feces and other indicators can be tricky if you don’t know what you are looking for. We do this every day and know the slight signs that can prevent big problems down the road.

How to Avoid Dangerous, Costly Rat and Mice Infestations

Prepare your home for Winter by doing a thorough inspection of your property. Make sure your shed is sealed up tight and your garage door is working correctly.

Walk the outside of your home and look for any small openings. Check the seals on your door jams and windows.

Lastly, look for signs you already have rodents in your midst. Finding evidence of this early will make getting rid of them so much easier than if they have been able to proliferate for an extended period.

We are always willing to come out and help you ensure this process has been done thoroughly.

While they are cute in movies and in pet stores, a free-roaming rodent will not be a wanted guest for long.
