RODENT PEST CONTROL IN HOUSTON – KEEPING MICE & RATS OUT OF YOUR HOME
Are you hearing what sounds like bowling going on in your attic, or even the occasional scratching or scurrying sounds above you? Are you starting to see some droppings under the kitchen sink or in the garage? Did you know that Houston ranks in the top 50 for most rat-infested cities in the U.S.? Whatever type of rodent situation you’re dealing with, we can help!
The first step to get rid of a rodent problem here in Houston is determining what you are dealing with: mice or rats. During an initial inspection, Preventive Pest Control specialists will inspect your home to determine what kind of rodent is present, how large of a rat or mouse infestation you have, and what will be needed in order to exterminate your Houston area rodent problem for good.
COMMON SIGNS OF MICE & RAT INFESTATIONS
Though rats and mice can differ in their behaviors, the most common signs of infestations include the following:
- Noises in the attic
- Pellet-shaped droppings in garage, attic, or living areas
- Gnawed holes in walls or other points of entry
- Nesting in insulation or other areas of the home
- “Grease” marks along where rodents frequent
RATS AND MICE IN YOUR HOME MUST BE ADDRESSED
Once mice or rats have established your home as a safe place or a source of food or water, they communicate with other rodents through their droppings or their Sebum (grease-type marks they leave along where they have established runways). Rats and mice carry disease wherever they run and are a way for other secondary pests to get established such as fleas and ticks that feed on these rodents.
Rodents can seem to defy gravity and crawl into the tightest of openings in walls, gain access through plumbing or air conditioning entries, or on the roof when tree limbs are hanging over or touching your home. In a nutshell, they will go to any height or pull themselves through holes that are the size of a penny to access your home or office to become a pest problem.
