Escondido Rodent Control Services

Not only are most people disgusted by the thought of rats or mice in their home, but these rodents also pose a number of health threats. Mice and rats have been documented to carry:

  • Plague
  • South American Arenaviruses
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
  • Leptospirosis
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Salmonellosis

Even if a rodent doesn’t carry a disease, they’re still not something you want crawling around in your home. Rats and mice will often chew on electric wires and try to raid your stash of food.? They will chew through practically anything when trying to get to food. They will also leave droppings in their path which contaminates any surface they walk across. Rats will even chew through walls if they think there is food on the other side.

Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our Escondido rodent control specialists can perform for you.

Below is a list of common places to find holes in your home that can be used by a mouse or rat. These include:

  • Lower corners of your attic
  • Around doors
  • Around your water pipes
  • Around the fireplace
  • Inside the attic
  • Under kitchen cabinets

Steel wool is great for filling holes and gaps found in your home. If a hole is larger, you may consider using metal sheeting or cement to close the hole or gap. Flashing can also be used around the base of your home to prevent entry. This probably sounds overwhelming, but don’t fret.Not only can our Escondido rodent control professionals get rid of your existing rodent problem, but they can prevent future mice and rats from being able to enter your home.
