RODENT CONTROL SERVICE PHILADELPHIA
Rodents are warm-blooded mammals, found throughout the world. They have oversized front teeth and check teeth, ideal for gnawing and chewing a variety of materials. Rodents will chew on anything available to them and can cause great damage in your home. Rodents are also exceptionally dirty – their feces and urine can contaminate your home’s surfaces.
Rodents are rapid breeders and some species breed year-round. Although some rodents are known for their short life spans, populations are maintained through constant reproduction.
Effective rodent control begins with prevention. All possible entry points, such as sewers and air vents, should be sealed. Rodents can enter through a hole as small as a dime, so even very small holes must be sealed. Rodents often enter homes by climbing trees and coming through broken screens or vents. In order to address an existing rodent population, it is necessary to identify and eliminate their feeding and dwelling sites. Pet food is an incentive for rodents and should be kept in tightly sealed containers. All human food should be similarly stored.
When a home is already infested, non-professional extermination methods will prove inefficient. Rodent traps address individual specimens only. Poisons can be harmful to humans and house pets. The most effective rodent control methods are those administered by trained, careful professionals.
Rodents’ instincts make them difficult to control, and they present a serious menace to your home. If you’re in need of rodent control services, contact our professionals now! In the meantime, here’s what you should know about these pests:
- Instincts: Rats are naturally wary of control measures such as traps and bait. They colonize in attics, burrows, under concrete and porches, in wall voids, and in other hard to reach places.
- Disease: Rats can harbor and transmit a number of serious diseases. They can also introduce disease-carrying parasites such as fleas, lice and ticks into your home.
- Instincts: Mice invade your home seeking food, water and warmth. Without mouse control intervention, one pair of mice may produce 200 offspring in four months.
- Contamination: Each mouse can contaminate much more food than it eats.
Rats and mice are very destructive and fixing their damage to your cabinetry, wood work, or furniture can be quite expensive. These rodents can also place your home in danger. Mice chew everything in sight; much of their damage will be out of sight, inside your walls. For example mice love to gnaw on insulation and wiring. Frayed electrical wiring caused by rodents has produced many house fires. Call us today to protect your family and your home from a rodent infestation.
