Rodent Problems: Home Damage & Health Hazards

While East County area rodents commonly invade homes and businesses all over the community, there’s nothing mundane or routine about rodent infestations. Mice, rats, squirrels, chipmunks, and other area rodents are all different, but they have a lot of similar qualities that can be very problematic on your property. For example, all rodents have very sharp teeth that they use to constantly gnaw on almost anything they can. They’ll also use these sharp teeth to chew holes in the side of your house that they’ll squeeze through with their flexible bodies. Once inside, they’ll continue to chew a variety of items that can lead to expensive damage: AC ducts, electrical wiring, clothes, linens, shoes, and more.

More disturbingly, many rodents like mice and rats will spread a variety of health hazards around your home. As carriers of dangerous bacteria (along with parasites like fleas and ticks), mice and rat infestations will often result in harmful illnesses like salmonellosis, E. coli, Lyme disease, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Other rodents like squirrels and chipmunks can put you and your family in danger of the rabies virus.

Unfortunately, rodents will also reproduce very rapidly within your walls, typically outpacing your store-bought traps or poison. Once an infestation becomes unmanageable, the property damage and health concerns will grow exponentially. That’s why the safest and most effective form of rodent prevention and eradication is trusting the professional solutions you can count on.

Customizable Rodent Control For Every Home

Typically, our rodent control process begins with a customer interview and a thorough (completely free) inspection. We search for all signs of rodents and do a careful examination of the rodent droppings. These can tell us the gender and the age of the rodent, along with if the rodent is lactating or not. We’ll also examine the home with ultraviolet lights to check for urine and waste.

Based on your reports and these signs, we’ll put together a custom trap system that allows us to capture the rodents in the safest and most efficient way possible. In order to keep your children and pets safe, we’ll never use rodent bait in the house.

Once we lay out our trap system, we’ll come back to check the traps every three days, replacing any damaged traps and removing any rodents that are caught. When disposing of trapped rodents, we always follow the California guidelines. As with all of our services, our rodent treatments come with a 30-day guarantee.
