What You Need to Know About Rodent Control
The following types of rodents are all common pests within Washington DC:
There are many distinct species of mice and rats, and not all of them behave the same way. Because Norway rats can't climb, they prefer to reside in basements or foundations. Roof rats, on the other hand, like to reside in ceilings, attics, and other high-up locations. Our specialists can determine the sort of rodent problem you're dealing with and offer a solution that focuses on the areas of your property where they live.
Rodent Damage to Homes
Rodent infestations pose significant risks to your home, your health, and your peace of mind. Here are just some of the ways in which rodents can cause damages and make your home unpleasant:
- Causing structural damage by chewing holes in walls and surfaces.
- Making noise that disturbs the occupants of your home.
- Creating fire hazards by chewing on electrical wires.
- Reducing your AC efficiency by chewing holes in ducts and spreading germs through air vents.
Rodents carry many potentially severe diseases, including:
- Lymphocytic choriomeningitis (LCMV)
- Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
- Rat-bite fever
Rodents aren’t just annoying and destructive; they can also be harmful to your health. If they’re in your home, you need to get them out as soon as you can.
How Rodents Get into Your Home
Rodents can enter your home in any of the following ways:
• Cracks or holes in floors, walls, and foundations
• Gaps in ceilings or attic areas
• Sewer lines, poorly sealed drainage pipes
• Cracks and gaps in windows and doors
Rodents often infest homes in the fall or early winter when outdoor temperatures drop—and once they settle in your home, they tend to stay there. Since most species reproduce quickly, getting rid of these pests can be extremely difficult without a professional exterminator.
How to Prevent Rodent Infestations in your Home
• Seal all holes and cracks inside and outside your home by patching or plugging them with steel wool and caulking.
• Clear piles of mulch, leaves, brush and other yard debris off your property
• Keep trash bins stored away from the home
• Seal kitchen garbage bins and composters inside the home
• Keep trees trimmed at least 4 feet away from the home (roof rats and squirrels can jump down from branches).
• If you live in a house, Install Pest Armor™ gutter shield guards to prevent mice, squirrels, and other rodents from getting under your roof.
A variety of rodent traps are available at hardware stores, but there is no substitute for an experienced mice exterminator if you want to rid your home of rodents completely and prevent them from coming back.
