Why You May Need Rodent Control Services 

Rodents are one of the most common pests in the world and can be quite a nuisance to everyone around them. While no one intentionally tries to attract rodents to their home or office space, there are some things that just naturally draw these pests into an area. Here are some of the things that may be causing a rodent activity and your need for rodent control services:

1) Available and Accessible Food

Rodents' main reason to infest your home in the first place is food. If you don’t store your food property, clean food residues off your countertop, or even leave your food waste bin unsealed, rodents will most likely enter your home. While you may see some of these things as inedible, rodents aren’t picky eaters and will see this as a viable and accessible food source fit for their survival. 

2) Water Leaks or Water Sources

After food, water sources like leaks or a pet water bowl can attract rats. Like food, these water sources are crucial to their survival. If your home can provide these things through leaks and broken pipes, rodents will see your home as a place they can thrive and inhabit.

3) Proximity to Nature

If you have trees or bushes near your home and its entrances, chances are a rodent can come in through this pathway. While rodents are wildlife pests that can be found in nature, if you have trees or plants near your home, they may be enticed to relocate to your home as it gives them access to food, water, and shelter, especially during the colder months of the year.

4) Cracks and Holes Around The Area

Though the rodents will need to be attracted to something in a space to enter, having small cracks or holes in your home wherein they can fit through does make it easier for them to infest your home. While you may think that these cracks are too small and harmless, rodents are often small in size and can fit through them. If they don’t have an easy access point, you reduce the risk of having a rodent infestation. 

The Dangers of Letting Your Rodent Infestation Grow

1) Food and Water Contamination

Rodents are known to be filthy animals due to their living conditions. When they rummage and search for food in your home, they carry with them pathogens and bacteria that will contaminate your food and water supply. While it's quite obvious when a rodent has eaten your food or entered your food and water supply, you stand the risk of consuming contaminated food and water if by any chance you do miss the signs of their presence. 

2) Structural and Electrical Damage

Rodents can gnaw, chew and bite through almost anything in your home. From wooden support structures in your walls to the walls itself, rodents can cause some real damage if left untreated. They can also chew through electrical wires. At best you may experience some faulty lighting if they do bite through wires, however, they could also cause a short-circuit and start an electrical fire inside your home. 

3) Flower and Crop Infestation

While rodents may be rescinding inside your home, this doesn’t mean they can cause issues outside your home. Flowers and home crops are both viable food sources that they will most likely dig into if given the chance. This will lead to damage to your garden and possible infections lingering in your crops. 

4) Illness and Disease

Rodents carry an array of diseases that can be transmitted to humans. From their toxic rodent feces and rodent urine to their infectious rodent bites, having a rodent infestation linger in your home can lead to severe illnesses and cause damage to your health.
