If you’ve been dealing with a rodent problem, you’re probably aware of the potential implications for your house and family. Damage to insulation, wires, ducts and beams in your attic and walls along with the incessant scurrying and scratching sounds can drive you insane. Professional rodent control is your best defense to handling a potential infestation.
What is a Rodent?
A rodent is a small-sized mammal that is characterized by continuously growing front teeth and habit of gnawing them down. This category includes animals such as rats, squirrels, and mice; and they will chew through just about anything. Due to their shockingly fast reproductive rate, having just a few in the house will lead to an infestation in no time, along with costly damage to your insulation, ducts, and wiring.
How Do Rodents Get In?
Rodents’ sharp front teeth allow them to access your house in the most unexpected of ways. Some potential household access points for rodents include:
- Roof corner intersections
- Vents and vent screens
- Ground level pipes going into the wall
- Cracks or holes in foundation, floors and walls
- Attached garages
