Rodents go beyond simply being a nuisance, making professional extermination crucial. Here are some of the threats they pose:

  • Diseases: Rodents can carry diseases directly and indirectly: the first through contact with feces, urine, saliva and bodies and, second, through contact with insects that feed on the rats or mice.
  • Damage: Neither rats nor mice are picky eaters, being willing to consume just about any food they find. They also chew (but not consume) wood and wires to create nests and sharpen their teeth, which could trigger a house fire.
  • Rodent Infestation: Before you actually see a rodent, you may spot other signs, including damage to food packaging; rustling sounds; and/or droppings in boxes, along baseboards, and where food is stored or prepared.

Rodents: What’s Important to Know

DANGERS

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.

DIET

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.

INFESTATION SIGNS

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.

PREVENTION

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.

Professional Rodent Removal in Palm Bay, FL

Here’s more about why rodent control is so important.

  • Signs of rats and mice: Because rodents can access most parts of a house, you may hear them moving about in your attic or between walls. One of the earliest signs you may see: rodent droppings, especially where food can be found. Or, you may find holes chewed through bags or boxes of stored food, for example, or gnawed through insulation around wires.
  • Dangers of rodents: More than thirty-five diseases can be spread by these creatures, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), impacting humans. Diseases can be directly spread through bites or contact with rodents’ urine, feces, or saliva. Indirectly, they can spread through fleas, ticks, and mites that feed on rodent blood.

Preventing Rodent Problems

Steps that you can take to minimize rodent presence in your Palm Bay home include the following:

  • Keep window and door screens in good condition as well as the weatherstripping around them.
  • Locate and block entry points, including those as tiny as a quarter of an inch.
  • Take away access to food by storing food in sealed containers in material that a rodent can’t easily chew through.
  • Repair leaks in faucets and spigots to eliminate sources of moisture.
  • Store firewood twenty feet or more away from your home.
  • Keep mulch several inches from your house’s foundation.
  • Use airtight containers to store your food.
  • Inspect items before bringing them into your home, including boxes, bags, and packaging.
  • Regularly take your trash outside and ensure outdoor garbage cans are tightly sealed.

Because rodents can fit through tiny openings, including narrow cracks and gaps, one of the most important things to do is close up potential entry points throughout the house. This includes gaps around windows and doors and holes where electrical, plumbing, and gas wires or lines enter the home.

Be sure to also check around dryer vents and pipes connected to sinks, hot water heaters, and washing machines. Inspect behind your cabinets and kitchen appliances as well as your attic and any other likely hiding spots.
