Keeping Rodents Away From Your Chandler Home
April 15, 2022
Mice, rats, and other Arizona rodents will enter homes, contaminate food, damage property, and may pose significant health risks. Based on their prevalence and smaller size, they can pose challenges when attempting to prevent them from entering a home or business.
Chandler Pest Control
A licensed Chandler pest control professional understands both the best ways of eradicating existing rodents and the best ways of how to keep rodents away from the property in the future. Keep in mind that one female mouse can produce dozens of offspring annually, which means that what starts as a relatively minor intrusion may quickly develop into a full-blown infestation as they expand their presence.
What Are The Types Of Property-Invading Rodents?
Some of the most common rodents in the Chandler region include:
- Roof rats: As excellent climbers, roof rats often burrow through eaves, enter chimneys, or find points of entry to attics.
- Packrats: As a desert-based rodent, pack rats are a common invader in this region that will often damage materials in a home to construct nests and expand their presence.
- House mice: The house mouse is a small creature that usually appears grey that is often initially detected as they rummage around the interior at night.
- Deer mice: The deer mouse has a body length of approximately three inches and is known for being among the primary carriers of hantavirus.
How Dangerous Is It To Have Rodents On My Property?
Rodents are known for passing through filthy conditions in sewers and trash with exposure to parasites. Some of the associated health concerns include leptospirosis, tularemia, hantavirus, and many other harmful problems. As rodents travel throughout a home, they will contaminate surfaces with excrement, create damage to drywall, insulation, wiring, and more.
All The Factors That Attract Rodents
Limiting food sources is among the best ways of reducing the possibility of encountering rodents. Promptly put leftovers in the refrigerator or sealed containers, and avoid leaving dirty dishes out overnight. Prevent access to trash receptacles by installing durable lids.
How To Safely Get Rid Of Rodents And Keep Them Away
Too many property owners are drawn to local stores that advertise snap traps, sticky traps, or granular formulas that are marketed as being a “quick and easy” solution to rodent problems. Weeks or months later, many of these individuals realize that their efforts were unsuccessful and experience further aggravation.
Remember that once Arizona rodents enter a home, they often become deeply entrenched within the structure; therefore, having a professional pest controller who knows how to get rodents out of walls is important. Those who are struggling with rodents should contact the experts with Green Home Pest Control for a thorough property inspection.
Our technicians recognize the noises that are often generated as these creatures rummage through walls and scamper across floors. We can often determine the type of rodent by examining their droppings and making an assessment regarding the points of entry.
