When you see a mouse or a rat in your home, it’s safe to assume that there are more you can’t see. It’s an unfortunate fact that rodent populations grow quickly—one female rat can reproduce as quickly as every 21 days—and the shelter, food and water in your home provide the perfect conditions for them to do just that. As soon as you spot a rodent, contact us to schedule an appointment. To exterminate the rats or mice you currently have, we will set baited traps, then we’ll inspect your home to locate entry points that may lead to a future infestation.
Signs of rats and mice: There are a number of signs to look for to determine whether you have rodents in your house, such as:
Measures you can take: Discouraging rodents from making themselves at home in your home takes a two-pronged strategy—close their entry points and don’t supply what they’re coming in for:
Be aware of health threats and fire dangers: Mice, rats and other rodents are more than just an annoyance or inconvenience. Several types of rodents can transmit diseases both directly and indirectly. Diseases they carry can spread by coming into direct contact with them or their droppings or urine, or even by inhaling dust that’s been contaminated with their droppings or urine. Diseases associated with rodents include salmonellosis, trichinosis, bubonic plague, hantavirus, and pulmonary fever, some of which are spread to humans by lice, fleas, mites and ticks that are carried by rodents.
Rodents can also damage your home by gnawing through wood joists and beams, and increase the danger of fire as they chew through electrical wires. They can even cause damage to your car by gnawing on the wiring in your vehicles to sharpen their teeth.
Common types of rats in the Ormond Beach area include roof rats and the Norway rat. Of these two types, Norway rats are larger—up to 16 inches in length—while roof rats are about eight inches long. Roof rats’ fur looks more smooth and sleek than that of Norway rats, which is rather shaggy.
The common house mouse is likely the type you will find in your home. Including its tail, the house mouse is only about 5.5 to 7.5 inches long.
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.
