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.
