Frequently Asked Questions About Rodent Pest Control
- What pests are considered “rodents”? Rodents are small mammals such as rats and mice. They are common in California homes and have small, furry bodies with powerful teeth.
- How do mice and rats get inside homes? Rodents are always on the lookout for food, shelter, and warmth. They often seek warm and insulated areas of the home such as crawl spaces, gaps in the walls, or attics. Since rats and mice are great climbers, it is easy for them to climb up the sides of homes or even jump from overhanging branches. Since they only need a space the size of a quarter, rodents can enter your home through pipes, under doors, and through chimneys.
- Do rodents spread disease? Yes, mice and rats can spread diseases. Rodents spread disease through contact with their bodily fluids, bites, or through direct handling by humans.
- Do I need a rodent exterminator? If you are sure that rodents are infesting your home, then you should call a professional rodent control service immediately. The problem will not get better on its own. A single rat can birth up to 60 rats per year.
- How can I prevent an infestation? Sealing gaps around vents, pipes, and utility cables are among the best ways to prevent an infestation. Keeping your home free of trash and clutter is also an effective way to make your home unattractive to rodents. We help identify potential entry points in your home so you can see where rodents are entering.
- What damage can rodents do to my home? Rodents can cause all sorts of damage to your home. Rats typically burrow in insulation or furniture, chewing through it in the process. They effortlessly chew through drywall and structural wood. They can also leave behind droppings full of bacteria.
