Unfortunately, most residents in the Mesa area experience a rodent problem at some point. Typically, once rodents have taken up residence in your home, they will look to nest and create a big family. You want to find and get rid of them before this happens.

Mesa Rats & Mice

Along with being disgusting, rats and mice can also pose a health hazard to your family. Mice and rats have been documented to carry:

  • Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Tularemia

Even if a rat or mouse doesn’t carry a disease, it will still remain a nuisance to have in your home. Rodents must chew on objects to keep their teeth from getting too long, which means they’re going to chew on just about anything they can find. Rats and mice will often chew on electric wires and try to raid your stash of food. Rats will chew through anything that stands between them and food.

Rats aren’t afraid of chewing through your walls to get to food. 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 nickel sized hole while rats can squeeze through a half dollar sized hole. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They gained entry through a small hole that went unnoticed.

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. Rest assured this is a service that our Mesa 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:

  • Near dryer vents
  • Around the fireplace
  • Around sink pipes
  • Inside your attic
  • Under kitchen cabinets
  • Behind refrigerators

We have found that steel wool is one of the most effective materials for closing these gaps. For large holes, we find that metal sheeting, lath metal or hardware cloth is the most effective. Flashing near the base of your home is another alternative that’s available. If this sounds overwhelming or too much for you to do, don’t fear. We’d be happy to send out our Mesa rodent control experts to not only rid your home of existing rodents, but to secure it from future invasions as well.
