WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT RODENTS

Some household pests are just annoying, but rodents pose a number of threats that make professional Port St. Lucie rodent extermination a must.
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.

Exterminating at the First Sign of Trouble

If you’ve seen one mouse in your home or a single rat, there’s a good chance that there are plenty more hiding out. Rodents multiply rapidly and can carry diseases, which is why it’s important to address the infestation at the first sign of its presence.

Early signs of a rodent problem including rat or mouse droppings in areas like your kitchen cabinets and pantries, and along baseboards. Or you might see signs on gnawing on pet food bags or packaging of dry foods, or in your wiring. Rodents have even chewed through cables and been blamed for starting house fires.

Another sign of their presence? Sound. Rats and mice are experts at hiding, but you may hear their rustling sounds, especially after dark. This could indicate nesting behavior.

Although none of the early signs mean that a rodent population is definitely in the home, it does suggest this could be true. When you contact us, our trained technicians can determine entry points for rats or mice; set baited traps to address your current challenge; and create a plan to help prevent any future infestations.

Measures You Can Take

A key strategy is to cut off their food supply. Rodents enjoy eating the crumbs left on countertops and on stove tops, so wipe them off thoroughly. Store dry foods such as cereals and grains in airtight containers, ones that are chew proof. Make sure that, after meals, your pet bowls are empty, with no spilled food bits around them.

The reality is that some rodents are sneaky enough to slip into homes when there is only a quarter of an inch wide opening. So find those and seal them off. Entry points of choice for rats and mice can include the chimney, roof vents, openings in the attic, and places where utilities come into the home.

If there’s a possibility that a rodent problem exists in your Port St. Lucie home, be sure to wear gloves, along with a mask and goggles, while cleaning up where there could be rodent droppings and urine. You don’t want to touch them or breathe in contaminated dust. Even if rats and mice aren’t carrying disease, their waste can harm people who suffer from allergies.

And, if they do carry disease, the varieties can be a threat to health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), rodents can carry more than 35 kinds of diseases. Humans can directly contact rat-bite fever, the bubonic plague, salmonellosis, hantavirus and more from them. This can occur because of a rodent bite, coming in contact with their saliva in another way or, as mentioned above, through feces or urine.

Rodents can also infect humans in an indirect way—and that’s when someone is bitten by a flea, tick, or mite that has fed upon rats or mice that are infected with disease.

Frequently Asked Questions

Preventive measures are the best defense against having rats and mice take up residence in your home, but professional rodent control is the most effective way to eliminate existing problems with rats and mice.

The most important things you can do to rodent-proof your home are:

  • Block all of their points of entry. Rodents can squeeze through the tiniest openings, so inspect your home for small cracks and look for crevices or other openings around all of the pipes and utility lines that come through your walls, attic and crawlspace. Seal openings around pipes with metal mesh or steel wool followed by cement. 
  • Eliminate the access provided by branches, shrubs and anything else that acts as a bridge to the exterior of your home.
  • Feed outdoor pets during the day and take in any remaining food at night.
  • Keep outside trash and garbage cans tightly sealed.
  • Inside your home, store food in airtight containers, keep countertops free of bits of food, and eliminate sources of water in your bathroom and kitchen that leaky faucets may provide.

The cost of rodent control depends on several factors, including how many rats or mice you have or whether there’s an extensive infestation, the method of rodent extermination used, and just which type of rodent problem you have. We’ll be happy to come out to your home, assess your rodent issues, and give you a free, customized estimate for our comprehensive rodent control services.

The most effective methods that professionals employ to get rid of rats and mice include setting different types of traps, using bait stations that attract the type of rodent you have. Additional rat control services include a close inspection of your home or property to determine where rats or mice are nesting and locate the openings they may be using to get inside your home. We’ll be glad to tell you about all of our rodent control services—please contact us online.

Catching mice with traps can quickly reduce your mouse population, but it’s important to do it right. Keep in mind that occasionally spotting a mouse running around your house doesn’t mean that you’re seeing the same one. In fact, there could be many more hiding in your walls, behind appliances, and in other out-of-the-way spots, so you need to set many more traps than you probably think you need. Additional methods of mouse extermination include bait stations, but the use of these should be left to rodent control professionals.

Like any warm-blooded animal, rats and other types of rodents must have shelter, water and food. If they can’t find those things outdoors, they’ll scout for a way into homes.

Rats have their preferred foods, such as grains and fruits, but if those aren’t handy, they’ll eat just about anything else they can find in your garbage can, dog or cat food bowls, or compost pile. If your garbage cans are unsecured, you leave food outdoors for pets, have bird feeders, or even a vegetable garden, your home may be a prime target for the local rat population. Water sources can include outdoor birdbaths or fountains, or even dripping faucets in your home.

Even though it’s common knowledge that rodents reproduce quickly, it’s astonishing just how fast mice can multiply. That’s why it’s so important to address a mouse problem as soon as you see the first one. Here are a few facts about how fast mice reproduce:

  • A single female mouse will have dozens of offspring in a year’s time
  • Gestation is only about three weeks long
  • A mouse can mate right after giving birth, keeping the cycle going without a break
  • Female offspring will be ready to reproduce in just six weeks
