What are the health and safety risks associated with a rodent infestation?
Rodent infestations pose serious health and safety risks, including the potential for disease transmission. Rodents can carry bacteria, viruses, parasites, fleas, and ticks. Diseases like Hantavirus, leptospirosis, and salmonellosis are commonly spread by these pests.
Additionally, rodents can cause significant property damage by gnawing through wiring, and shredding insulation, creating potential fire hazards. Addressing a rodent problem promptly is crucial for safeguarding both health and home.
How long does it take to completely eliminate rodents from my property?
The timeline for complete rodent elimination will vary depending on the severity of the infestation and the specific circumstances of your property. Generally, you can expect initial results within 7-10 days after the first treatment, with comprehensive control achieved in 2-4 weeks. Our treatment is not finished until your rodent problem is 100% resolved.
What methods do you use for rodent control and are they safe for pets and children?
Our team uses a combination of trapping, baiting, and exclusion techniques that are both effective and humane. All products and methods employed are EPA-approved and designed to be safe for pets and children when applied by our trained and certified technicians.
What signs of rodent infestation should I look for?
Common signs of a rodent infestation include droppings, gnaw marks on furniture or wires, unusual smells, and scratching or scurrying noises, especially at night. You may also find nests made from shredded paper or fabric.
What steps can I take to prevent future rodent infestations after treatment?
To prevent future rodent issues, it’s important to rodent proof your home’s exterior by sealing up entry points like cracks, gaps, or holes. Keep food sources, like pet food, in sealed containers and dispose of waste in secure bins. Regular inspection and maintenance of your property aids in detecting early signs of a potential infestation.
What types of mice and rats are commonly found as pests, and how do they differ?
Various species of mice and rats can invade homes, but the most common ones in the South Carolina Midlands are the House Mouse, the Deer Mouse, the Norway Rat, and the Roof Rat. The House Mouse is small and grayish-brown, while the Deer Mouse is slightly larger with a white belly. The Norway Rat is the larger of the two rat species and usually has a brown or gray coat. Roof Rats are smaller, more agile, and often black or dark brown.
Each species exhibits unique behaviors and has preferred nesting areas, which can impact the strategy for their removal and control. Our technicians will identify which species is responsible for your rodent activity and choose the correct treatment plan to deal with them.
Do rodent repellents work, and are they a good alternative to other treatment methods?
Rodent repellents, such as ultrasonic devices and natural sprays, advertise themselves as a non-toxic approach to deterring mice and rats. However, these products generally do work well and are usually not sufficient for eliminating an active infestation.
