Rodent Removal becomes more common in the Rockwall area during the colder months. Rodent Removal is important part of pest control because rodents can do a significant amount of damage to a home or commercial property.
Rodents In Your Home
Homes are a prime target for rodents like racoon, possums, squirrels, rats, mice and armadillos. In the Rockwall area you may even have a fox or badger. Some of these rodents only need a hole less than an half inch in size to achieve entry in to your home. Once a rodent has gained access to your home, they can not only begin to nest and live there, but begin to cause serious damage. You then find yourself in need of rodent removal immediately.
Damage Rodents Cause
Once a rodent has taken up residence in your home, most likely the attic, they begin to make some design changes. This may include putting holes in your roof, vents or side of the house. They may also tear up your insulation in your attic, chew electrical cords or claw their way inside a box you have stored in the attic.
While this damage alone is enough to contact a rodent removal expert, the waste they generate is another level of damage and disgust. In some of the homes we’ve encountered that have a good mouse population living in the attic, the entire insulation needed replacing due to the urine and feces throughout the attic.
It is much less expensive to hire a rodent control professional to take care of the unwanted tenants.
Trapping and Removal
Trapping comes in many forms. There are glue traps, snap traps and live capture devices to use in the rodent removal process. However, using bait in the incorrect places can cause the rodent problem to become worse.
