Did you know that Rats are smart?
Yes, rats are considered smart little (or big) guys. This is why they can be a challenge to control. Rats know their environment, therefore are aware of new surroundings such as traps and bait. This is why hiring a professional is critical in rodent management and prevention.
Rats carry Deadly Diseases.
Rats can hold and transmit a variety of serious diseases; not to mention their ability to bring in fleas and ticks into your home. Have you ever heard of the “Black Plague”? It was that exact plague that hit in the middle ages and killed millions of people. It happened from fleas that were on rats, that they would bite humans. Bites, scratches, and urine are all responsible for leptospirosis, which can result in liver and kidney damage. Another disease called Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis (LCMV) is a viral infectious disease that is transmitted through the saliva and urine of rats. Some people have short and long-term effects of this disease. Another virus called, nantavirus can be transmitted to humans when they inhale airborne particles from rodent droppings, urine or dead rodents. Rats can also cause people to have allergies. Their dander, droppings, and hair can cause people to sneeze and have other allergic reactions.
Because of the serious life threating diseases rats and mice can harbor, we do not recommend any do-it-yourself home traps or sprays. If you’ve seen a rodent, we advise you to contact us immediately and a certified technician will come to your home and perform a FREE inspection. You will most likely need a rodent treatment plan, specific to your home.
Your New Roommates:
Mice, like rats, are warm-blooded mammals that can be found all over the world. They can chew on a variety of items and can cause minor or major damage in and around your home. Because they are rapid breeders, reproducing behind your walls or in your attic year round, it’s critical to hire a professional to eliminate the source of the rodent infestation.
Mice love an environment where they can have a nibble here and there, where someone always leaves a trail of their chips behind them. Not only do they love eating your leftovers, they also go in and around your home contaminating other food in your pantries.
Do-it-Yourself Ineffectiveness: Just because you see one mouse, does not mean that’s the only one invading your home… you just haven’t seen the others. Store bought sprays and traps only catch the mice you see by day, disregarding the night crawlers that come to your kitchen and roam your home while you are sleeping. Mouse infestations can grow rapidly and can be extremely difficult to exterminate. Keeping your home clean and hiring a professional that will create and deliver a customized mice control management plan will aid in the extermination and prevention of future infestations.
