The Common Risks of Rodent Infestation

Rodents can cause a wide range of problems for home and business owners, most prominently including these: 

Property Damage

Rodents, with their constant gnawing behavior, can wreak havoc on a property's structure. They chew on wood, insulation, and electrical wiring, possibly leading to costly damage and potential fire hazards. 

Health Hazards

The health risks associated with rodent infestations are diverse, and some can be serious. Diseases like hantavirus, leptospirosis, and salmonellosis can be carried by rodents and then transmitted to human beings through contact with contaminated surfaces. Exposure to rodent droppings, urine, or saliva can result in illnesses, making it imperative to remove rodents promptly and thoroughly. 

Contamination

Rodents pose a significant threat to food safety and hygiene due to their habit of contaminating food sources. Their droppings and urine can spread harmful bacteria and pathogens, leading to foodborne illnesses if ingested. Proper storage of food items, along with sealing entry points to prevent rodent access, can help to minimize the risk of contamination and maintain a healthy living environment. Regular cleaning and disinfection in areas prone to rodent activity are other key preventive measures to protect against food contamination.

Allergies and Asthma

Rodent infestations can exacerbate symptoms and lead to health complications for those with allergies or respiratory conditions. Rodent dander and droppings contain allergens that can trigger allergic reactions and respiratory distress. Effective rodent control measures, coupled with thorough cleaning to remove allergen particles, can reduce indoor air pollutants and create a safer, healthier living space for those vulnerable to allergic reactions and respiratory issues.

Odor Issues

Rodent infestations often result in foul odors permeating throughout a property, due to the presence of rodent urine and droppings. These odors not only create discomfort but also indicate the extent of the infestation. Proper sanitation, removal of rodent debris, and thorough cleaning are part of eliminating odor issues associated with rodent infestations. Addressing the root cause of the infestation and implementing odor control measures can restore a pleasant indoor environment and improve the overall conditions for all on your property.

Our Rodent Control Protocol

Our rodent control process is methodical and comprehensive. Leveraging our extensive industry knowledge, we scrutinize all potential rodent hotspots in and around your property, from garage door frames to attic spaces. We seek to identify entry points and assess for any rodent-induced damage. 

Our attic inspection includes a thorough examination of insulation, pipes, wires, ductwork, and ventilation systems to pinpoint signs of intrusion. For a holistic assessment, we may utilize drones to survey roofs for access points and signs of roof-dwelling rodents.

Upon completing our assessment, we implement an initial treatment plan aimed at eradicating existing rodent populations within your home, reducing exterior rodent presence, and fortifying defenses against future incursions. 

This strategy encompasses a multi-faceted approach: 

  • The strategic placement of tamper-proof bait stations near key areas
  • Specialized trapping techniques indoors
  • Precise sealing of foundation entry points using rodent-deterring foam
  • The installation of  protective screening on foundation vents 
  • Exclusion work to fortify your property against new infestations

We provide other services, such as attic remediation, crawlspace clean-out, and encapsulation, to address residual damage and contamination resulting from rodent activity. These services are particularly beneficial for properties affected by severe rodent infestations.

Our commitment extends beyond the initial intervention, with scheduled follow-up visits for two consecutive months post-treatment, followed by bi-monthly maintenance sessions to uphold your property's rodent defenses and promptly address any new rodent activity.

You benefit from unlimited free callbacks between scheduled visits, as we provide ongoing protection for your home or business, which can give you peace of mind.
