Why Control Rodent?
Rodent problems inside the home should be treated immediately because they can cause significant damage to wiring and been known to chew through floor joists and walls.
Rats have very sharp and powerful teeth that can gnaw through materials.
Rats can also damage air conditioning ducting in cavity roofs or subfloors.
Rodents can enter a building through almost any opening or crack. It is important with rodent control, to inspect for rodent droppings, especially in undisturbed areas such as pantries, under baseboards and along walls. Rat droppings most often cause allergic reactions in humans, but can also cause disease, including the potentially deadly Hantavirus.
Rodents serve as vectors, carrying bacteria, such as salmonella, on their bodies and contaminating food sources, kitchen surfaces and electrical appliances. They can also spread other pests throughout your home, especially fleas and mites.
