Rodents (Rats and Mice)

Rodents, such as rats and mice, are pesky creatures that can cause havoc in homes. They scurry around our houses, searching for food and shelter, and can create a great deal of mess. Unfortunately, they also spread diseases by contaminating food sources with their droppings or saliva. The best way to prevent an infestation is to remove potential nesting sites from the home and ensure all food scraps are disposed of properly. Additionally, sealing any holes or cracks in the walls and floors can help keep them out. Traps or poisons may be used if an infestation has already occurred but it is important to exercise caution when using these methods. Regular inspections should be undertaken to identify new nests early on so that appropriate action can be taken promptly.
