Although you may not suspect it, rodents can actually pose a health risk to your family. According to the CDC, Tustin rodents can carry the following diseases:

  • Plague
  • South American Arenaviruses
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
  • Leptospirosis
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Salmonellosis

Clearly, not all rodents will carry diseases. However, rodents can still be a nuisance around your home because they chew on everything. It is not uncommon to find chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are involved. Rats will chew through anything that sites between them and food.?Rats will even chew through walls if they think there is food on the other side.

Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our Tustin rodent control specialists can perform for you.

We’ve included a list of the common areas where we find rodents navigating in homes. The common areas are:

  • Around doors
  • Around the pipes under sinks and washing machines
  • Near floor vents
  • Between the wall and floor juncture
  • In your attic
  • Inside closets near the floor corners

Fill any small holes and gaps you find with steel wool which is kept in place with caulking around the edges. For large holes, we find that metal sheeting, lath metal or hardware cloth is the most effective. Flashing can also be used around the base of your home to prevent entry? We know this sounds like a lot to do, but don’t worry. Our Tustin rodent control experts can get rid of any existing rodent problem and help prevent future ones.
