Rodents multiply rapidly, so if you’ve noticed even a single mouse or rat on your property, the chances are good that there are more in hiding. That’s why it’s important to call us at the first sign of rodent trouble. Our rodent control services include determining where rats or mice are entering your home to help ward off future infestations, and setting baited traps to take care of your immediate problem.
Here’s what you should know about rodents in your Orlando, Florida, home:
Threats to homes and health: Mice, rats, and other rodents are not only an unpleasant nuisance—they can carry diseases and cause damage to your home. They’ve even been blamed for house fires after having chewed through cables and electrical wiring.
Signs of rodent problems: Rats and mice are very good at hiding, so it’s good to be familiar with the signs of their presence. You may see droppings anywhere food is stored or prepared, including pantries and cabinets in your kitchen. Look for signs of chewing, such as holes in bags or boxes of dry food packaging. Check attic spaces and wiring for signs of chewing as well. Other signs include sounds as they nest or move around, particularly after dark.
Preventive measures: One of your first lines of defense is to cut off any food supply you’re unknowingly offering them. Wipe crumbs from countertops and appliances promptly; store grains, cereals, and other dry good in cabinets, drawers, or pantries in airtight containers that are chew-proof; and clean up after feeding pets, making sure their bowls are empty unless it’s mealtime.
Also check every entry point coming in to your home, keeping in mind that some rodents can squeeze through an opening just a quarter of an inch wide. Keep shrubs and tree branches away from your house to eliminate the “highways” rodents can use, and check your chimney, roof vents, attic, and utility entry points to ensure rats and mice can’t get in.
Be careful cleaning up: Even if rodents in your home aren’t disease-carriers, their droppings and urine can be harmful for those who suffer from allergies. For the greatest safety when cleaning up after a rat problem, wear gloves, a mask and goggles to ensure you don’t breathe or otherwise come into contact with droppings or contaminated dust.
