Rodent Removal Done Right
There is nothing like the sight of a rodent in your home to ruin your sense of well-being. You keep your home clean for your family’s health and enjoyment and any intrusion by a rat or other rodents requires immediate attention. It can make you want to scream! Why does rodent removal have to be so difficult?
These creatures – mice, rats, voles, etc. – do not travel alone, especially in Houston, where the climate and environment is favorable for their population. As temperatures drop, rodents seek the warmth of a house and burrow or otherwise make their way into the home. You want a safe and environmentally responsible way to get them out and keep them out.
What is the best way to get rid of rats or mice or other rodents? A licensed pest control or animal damage control professional can come to the rescue of your home and sanity. Rat removal is simply not a good DIY idea.
Rats and other rodents carry diseases such as leptospirosis, rat-bite fever and plague (see Centers for Disease Control list of rodent-transmitted diseases). Please leave rat trapping and other rodent removal techniques to a professional. Besides, do you really want to be up close and personal with your uninvited guests?
Rodents often take up residence inside walls and other hard to reach spaces within a home. After removal of the rodents, damaged areas should be removed as well and the area properly cleaned and sanitized.
For ongoing rat control, it is important to prevent them from getting into the home again. Your pest control professional will inspect the house to find, and close off, any openings in the exclusion process.
