Whether you know you have rodents or think you might have another type of wild animal in your home, Big Time Pest Control can identify what you’re up against. Our expert rodent exterminators in Northern California are highly trained to quickly identify the most common signs of rodent infestations, such as the following:
A rodent infestation can be scary. Not only are they a hygiene hazard, but rodents carry a variety of diseases - such as salmonella and Hantavirus - that could potentially make you or your loved ones ill. Dealing with store-bought rat poisons can be equally scary if you apply them wrong. Thanks to Big Time Pest Control, these worries will be off your mind thanks to our reduced-risk mice and rat control in Northern California. You won’t have to worry about toxic bait stations or interior traps—we utilize reduced risk treatments that won’t harm your family or pets.
Rats are truly talented athletes—the fact that they are able to swim great distances, climb rough vertical surfaces, and jump vertically 2 feet and horizontally 4 feet gives solid proof of the wisdom of stopping them from getting inside any building. Their rapid and frequent reproduction gives further impetus to the need to pay close mind to prevention or exclusion if there is already an infestation. Rodents can cause a wide range of different problems in anyone's home, and these issues can completely compromise a person's quality of life.
Mice and rats will also chew on furniture and cloth, causing a lot of holes and cracks that would never have formed otherwise. These abrasions can be unmistakable. People will have a hard time hiding them. These parasites can cause hundreds or thousands dollars worth of damage just in this way.
Rodents can cause a wide range of different problems in anyone's home, and these issues can completely compromise a person's quality of life.
They can cause even more damage if they damage the structure of the house, which is not uncommon. The holes in the frames of houses that are often associated with mice are not just benign points of entry for them. These holes will actually damage a given household. Mice will not weaken the entire structure of a house in the manner of termites. However, they can still cause a lot of damage in the short-term and the long-term. They are trying to burrow in the house the way they would burrow outside in the wild, and this is always going to have lots of consequences for a house.
One of the worst things that rodents will do within a given household is spread disease. Rodents have very high metabolisms and they tend to process food quickly. This means that they produce a lot of waste. Their waste products all contain harmful digestive bacteria.
People who are dealing with rodent infestations will often find feces all over their homes and attempt to clean it up rather than calling a professional rat exterminator. This is a good idea as a short-term solution for clearing up the scent from a rodent's feces might be able to stop other rodents from being drawn to that location. However, in some cases, residents will not be as lucky. They might end up accidentally touching the feces and touching their mucus membranes, which can be enough to spread disease.
When you alert to the fact that Hantavirus, Rat Bite Fever, Bubonic Plague, Typhus, and Leptospirosis are just a few of the many diseases that they can carry, the necessity of keeping your home free of rodents is starkly apparent. There are some DIY jobs you can do that should help - like sealing all possible entry points - but because these creatures bring the possibility of serious disease and damage, they deserve the attention of a pest control company.
