At the first sign of rodents in your home, you need to immediately call in professional pest control. These critters will not stop invading your home if you don’t do something about them. They will not go away and move to another safe place to live when they see you holding a broom and swatting them or jumping on a chair and screaming at them. Most importantly, they barely stay in the same house without increasing their population.
The only way to control their population and get rid of them is to call in professional assistance. Of course, you can always plan ahead and implement appropriate preventive measures to make sure these pests won’t invade your home. Once they’re already inside your home, there’s nothing else to do other than to have a professional exterminate them.
It’s not only rodents
If you think seeing rodents scurry through your home will happen only once or that ignoring them will make the situation less of a problem, you better think again. Keep in mind that if there is a mouse lurking around your property, the following kinds of pests will also be present in most cases.
- Carpet beetles – These pests live off of the food stowed away by rats and other rodents. When they learn about the secret food hiding places of the rodents, they will move on to where you hide your food.
- Fleas – Aside from feeding on your pets, fleas also feed on rodents. So if you don’t have a pet, but there are rats and rodents in your home, you’ll surely face a flea problem in no time. What’s worse is that fleas can also feed off you once they’re done with the rats.
- Mites – Where there are mice, there are almost always mites as well. These pests often travel with the mice and thrive where they live. Like fleas, house mice mites also feed off of humans.
Preventing mice and other pests is the ultimate pest control
As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. In the case of a pest problem, it’s not only prevention, but education as well. In fact, most professionals consider education as the key to a successful and undeterred prevention.
Here are some things you should know to properly prevent mice, rodents and other pests from entering and living in your home.
- Cracks and holes, wherever they may be – on the walls, ceilings, or floor outside and inside – are what rodents primary use to enter your home.
- Standing water on and inside your home are like homing devices for rats and other rodents.
- Garbage lids should always be closed as these also attract the rodents.
- Left over food lying around your eating areas inside and outside the house are excellent food sources for rats and mice.
- Working with your neighbors goes a long way in improving your preventive measures.
- The one small mouse you see running around your property is not alone. That one mouse almost always comes with other bigger rodents to invade your home.
If you don’t know what type of rodent you’re dealing with, it’s best to leave the task of terminating them to professional pest control.
