Rats & Mice Prevention

Screen ShotRats and mice have the power to kill a party and drive your friends and family away for good. In addition to the fear associated with rodent bites, the real threat comes in the form of fleas, mites, and microbes they may be carrying on their fur.

What attracts mice and rats to your home?

If you want to stop the infiltration of rats and mice into your household you will need to pinpoint the source of their entry. Once you figure out what is making your house the rodent central of the locality it becomes much easier to finally bid adieu to the critters. In most cases, the easy availability of food and water draws rats to your kitchen and living room. The lack of poorly maintained pipelines and basements make it much easier for the rats to become members of your household.

How can you be sure you have a rodent problem?

Like every disease has its symptom, rat infestation leaves its own signature marks. From rat droppings to unidentifiable gnawing marks on furniture and walls. Rats are notorious for cutting through the fabric and once in a while, you may notice holes in your favorite pair of plaid trousers or your powder blue cardigan. You will begin to notice large holes in furniture and floorboards. Norway rats have the habit of digging burrows under the roots of trees and grassy fields. These are a few of the sure signs of rodent infestation.
