Reliable Rodent Removal & Prevention Treatments

Mice take advantage of holes or gaps in the walls of your home wiggling their way into spaces smaller than the width of a quarter. Once they get into your home, rodents often breed, quickly making a small problem worse. Depending on the severity of the infestation, a DIY method may not be enough, requiring a visit from a professional rodent exterminator. That's where Sound Pest Control comes in!

How Do I Know If I Have Rats Or Mice?

Rodents are nocturnal, meaning they are active at night while you're asleep. Because if this, it can often take homeowners a while to notice the growing rodent population seeking shelter in their houses. If you think you might have mice or rats living in your house, look for these common signs of rodents:

  • Rodent Droppings: Look for small, black droppings in and around your home. Mouse droppings are typically smaller and more pointed, while rat droppings are larger and more rounded.
  • Rodent Urine: You might also start noticing small puddles of urine, especially along floorboards. As the urine dries, it leaves behind an unpleasant smell, which is why a strong, musty odor is another common indicator of a rodent infestation.
  • Gnaw Marks: Check for gnaw marks on wires, wood, and other materials around your home. Mice and rats have sharp teeth and will chew on anything they can find.
  • Tracks: Look for footprints or tail marks in dusty areas, such as in your attic or basement.
  • Scurrying Noises: Listen for scurrying or scratching sounds, especially at night when mice and rats are most active.
  • Nests: Check for nests made of shredded material, such as paper or fabric, in hidden areas of your home.
  • Damage to Food Containers: Mice and rats can chew through plastic and cardboard containers to access food.
  • Dead Rodents: Depending on how large the rodent population has grown, you might start finding dead rats or mice, which will cause a very strong, unpleasant smell as they decompose.

If you suspect that you have a rodent infestation, it's important to take action quickly to prevent the problem from getting worse. This may include sealing up entry points, setting rodent bait and traps, using rat repellents, or hiring a professional pest control service.

What Attracts Rodents To My House?

Though we think of rats as vermin that only live in nasty sewers, the reality is that a lot of rodents live in buildings, whether residential or commercial. Just because you suspect a rodent infestation in your home does not mean that your home isn't clean. 

In fact, there are many aspects that can attract rodents to your home, including:

  • Easy Food Sources: Rodents are attracted to food sources, so if you leave food out or don't store it properly, you could be inviting rodents into your home. This includes pet food, birdseed, and garbage.
  • Clutter: Rodents love to hide in cluttered areas, so if you have a lot of clutter in your home, it can provide a great hiding spot for rodents.
  • Moisture: Rodents need water to survive, so if you have any leaks or standing water in or around your home, it can attract rodents.
  • Warmth: Rodents are attracted to warm places, so if your home is poorly insulated or you have a lot of gaps and cracks, it can create a warm environment that is appealing to rodents.

To prevent rodents from being attracted to your home, it's important to keep your living space clean, clutter-free, and properly sealed. This means storing food in airtight containers, sealing up holes and cracks, fixing leaks, and keeping your home well-ventilated.

The Dangers of Rodents

Rodent activity can pose several dangers to humans, including:

  • Disease Transmission: Rodents can carry and transmit various diseases to humans, including hantavirus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, and rat-bite fever. These diseases can be transmitted through rodent bites, scratches, or contact with their urine, feces, or saliva.
  • Allergies: Rodent droppings and urine can trigger allergies and asthma in some individuals, causing symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, and shortness of breath.
  • Contamination: Rodents can contaminate food and water sources with their urine, feces, and hair, which can lead to food poisoning and other illnesses.
  • Property Damage: Rodents can cause significant damage to your home and property by chewing through walls, wires, and insulation. This can create a fire hazard or cause expensive repairs.

Overall, it's important to take steps to prevent and control rodent infestations in and around your home to protect yourself and your family from these potential dangers. Call our team today to learn more about our rodent control services.

5 Star Review

5 Star Review

The first technician that treated our home for ant infestation explained why the DIY treatments I was using were not working. In addition to spraying around the outside, he applied professional ant bait in a few places inside. But a few weeks later we still had ants! So I called back and Suzi immediately scheduled another technician to revisit our situation.

5 Star Review

I very much appreciate the effort so far of Suzi at the front office and James, the technician, that has come out twice now to first set traps and assess necessary repairs and then come back and deal with the aftermath. I will be keeping them for follow-on maintenance to fully eradicate the problem and then also hopefully help me with wasps in the spring. Be a good neighbor: don't leave garbage out or other attractive nuisances for rodents. It impacts everyone in your neighborhood when you do.
