If you are hearing noises (like scurrying little feet), have encountered items that appear to have damage (from being chewed), or you have discovered little pellet-like feces around your home, there is a possibility you have a rodent dilemma. Rats and mice can be a frustrating pest to deal with but our professionals at Quality Pest Exterminator are up to date on the most recent strategies for efficiently controlling these unwanted insect.
These warm-blooded animals are commonly a problem in many parts of the world, not simply in Indiana. Rats use their big front teeth for gnawing and side teeth to chew.
Rats can reproduce quickly once they have invaded a space or location so you can not delay action if you presume a rat issue in your home. They will certainly find a way into your property through small fractures, holes, crevices, any other openings they can access from the outside. Rats can press in and squeeze through very small entry points so even if you believe it is too small, they can likely fit through it, so seal it up regardless. It’s not a chance worth taking.
Do It Yourself Rat Control: Is It Effective?
Rats will certainly seek to create their own home inside your property; the attic, wall spaces and underneath porches are common breeding grounds. They are also quite wary of their environment so when presented to new things, such as bait and traps, the results may not be as successful as you had hoped.
Rats also can carry and transmit a range of diseases so when they are scurrying about in your home, on your floors, counters, everywhere, they are likely leaving behind a range of bacteria. If that doesn’t seem bad enough, the rats could be carrying fleas or ticks which could also be brought into your property, leaving you with more pest issues to stress about and deal with.
