When it comes to Orlando pest control, rodents are high on the list of invaders that homeowners want to get rid of quickly. If rats, mice, or other types of rodents are a problem at your Orlando home, the pros at Turner Pest Control offer fast, effective extermination.
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.
Rodents can carry diseases that can be contracted by having contact with their feces, saliva, urine, or bodies, or by being bitten. They also indirectly spread disease through insects that have fed on them.
Mice and rats will eat any type of food they find. While they don’t consume wiring or wood, they chew them to sharpen their teeth or create nests. Chewed wiring in your home or vehicle can lead to a fire.
Even if you don’t see a rodent, you may see their signs: droppings along baseboards, in boxes, or where food is stored or prepared. You may see damage they’ve done to food packaging or hear them moving around.
Keep rodents away by taking away their access to your food—store food in sealed containers that rodents can’t chew through. You should also find and eliminate their entry points, even those as small as a quarter of an inch.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shares that rodents carry more than 35 kinds of diseases, including some that can be spread to humans. Directly, you can catch rat-bite fever, the bubonic plague, salmonellosis, hantavirus and more by being bitten by rodents, by handling them, or by coming into contact with rat or mouse feces, saliva, or urine. Indirectly, rodents spread disease to humans when people are bit by fleas, ticks, or mites that fed on infected rats or mice. Plus, rodents can damage your home, including starting fires by chewing through electrical wiring and cables. Contact us online for Orlando rodent control services or call (407) 675-5000.
Wherever your food is stored, such as in pantries and kitchen cabinets, you may see rat or mouse droppings and may also find droppings along your baseboards. You may see signs of chewing in dry food packaging or pet food bags. Check your attic and your wiring to look for signs of chewing, and listen for sounds of movement, especially after dark.
