Signs of rats and mice

If you notice any of these common signs of a rodent infestation, it’s time to call for help:

  • Gnaw marks
  • Droppings
  • Piles of nesting materials
  • Foul odors
  • Scratching sounds

Why do you need a rodent exterminator?

No homeowner wants to deal with a rodent problem on their own. There are two main reasons why you should always call a professional with experience in rodent control:

  1. Rodents can cause illness. When rodents get into your cabinets, they can contaminate your food by leaving behind urine and feces. In addition to being gross, rodents carry diseases and pathogens! It’s also possible for people in your family to have allergic reactions such as hives or asthma attacks. 
  2. Rodents can cause extensive damage. A rodent’s sharp incisors never stop growing, so it is driven to continually gnaw on things just like a teething baby. A rodent can chew through just about anything, including some kinds of metal, most kinds of wood, and even wires, which can potentially create a fire hazard.
