Let Us Help You Get Rid Of Rodents
As the population of Atlanta grows, it’s unfortunate that the rodent population has increased as well. Having a rodent problem doesn’t mean you have a dirty house. Mice, rats, etc. simply want what we all want – a nice place to live.
When it comes to getting rid of rodents, there are three basic methods: trapping, baiting, and exclusion. To determine which method makes the most sense for your situation, it’s really important that we do a thorough inspection.
If trapping seems to be the best method, we tend to use glue traps or spring traps inside a home, attic, or crawl space. Once we remove all the rodents, we make every effort to find and seal the points of entry which are typically easy to close off to prevent their return.
Signs That You Have A Rodent Problem
Here are a few telltale signs that you have a rodent problem in your home:
Rodent Droppings Or Urine Odor
Clearly, if you see any type of droppings that you don’t recognize, it can be a sign that you have some uninvited rodents in your house. Mouse droppings are small and usually less than a quarter of an inch and pointed on both ends. Rat droppings are usually a half an inch or larger. Rodent urine has a strong, musky odor that can be easily smelled if you have a larger infestation.
You See One
Obviously, if you see a mouse, rat, or other types of rodent in your home, you now have a problem. Where there’s one, there are usually more, and once they are inside, they don’t tend to have a reason to leave. That’s definitely when you need to call us.
Gnawed Holes Or Claw Marks
When rodents travel along walls in a house, they often leave oily rub marks behind. If you rub the mark and it smears, it’s a fresh indicator that a rodent has been there recently. If you see gnaw marks along the baseboards or door frames, these can also be an indicator of a problem.
If you find a cache of shredded paper, string, or other materials, this is how rodents tend to build their nests once they are indoors. Roof rats typically build their nests in attics indoors.
Most people know that rodents are nocturnal, so if you hear scratching noises at night, it could be rodents scurrying along the floors or behind the walls.
Strange Pet Reactions
Your dog or cat can often help you discover whether you have a rodent problem. Pets smell and hear rodents better than we often do, so they will bark at certain areas of the house or scratch around certain areas trying to get at the rodents.
