Mice and rats are prodigious breeders, which means if you’ve seen one there are likely many more to follow. Rodents carry diseases and destroy property with their sharp incisors that allow them to chew through wood and tunnel into your home where they like to make nests in insulation to keep warm from the elements. Along with that rodents contaminate everything they encounter as the leave droppings while they carry filth and parasites around in their fur that bring additional health problems.
Rat Bite Fever
Treating for rodents begins with a thorough inspection to identify the type, location, and potential points of entry the rodents are using to enter your house. If rodents are inside the home the first course of action is to trap them or lure them out. Once the rodents have been removed the affected areas need to be decontaminated to prevent any hazards to health and then all potential points of entry should be sealed to avoid any future return. If you have been hearing scurrying in the walls or sighted any suspicious rodent activity it’s time to schedule a free inspection and have a Fast Action Pest Control technician assess the situation.
