Carrollton Rodent Extermination

Rodents, such as mice and rats, are social creatures. They tend to create large nests. Once rodents find a good source of food, warmth, and water, they will build a nest and begin to multiply rapidly.

Rats & Mice

Not only are most people disgusted by the thought of rats or mice in their home, but they also pose a number of health risks to humans. According to the CDC  the rodents found in Carrollton, Texas can carry a number of diseases. While not all rodents will be carriers of diseases, they can still be a nuisance around the house as they chew everything in sight. It is very common to find chewed electrical cords and food items when mice and rats are living inside your home. They will also chew through practically anything when trying to get to food. They will even chew through a wall if they think there is food on the other side of it.

Rodent Prevention

Mice and rats often gain entry to a home because of a very small gap or hole in the home’s exterior. They do not need a very large hole or gap to get into your property. Mice only need a hole about the size of a nickel while rats need a hole the size of a half dollar.

Some common places that rats and mice use to get into your home are around the pipes under your sink, between the floor and wall juncture, inside cabinets, and around doors. Don’t forget to look on the outside of your home’s foundation for points of entry as well. Often times once they are inside they will live inside the walls of your home.

 If you find any small holes or gaps you should fill them with steel wool, kept in place with caulking around the edges. Larger holes can be fixed with metal sheeting, cement, metal screen, or hardware cloth. Flashing can also be used around the base of your home to prevent mice and rats from entering.
