Don't Let Rodents Live Rent-Free Inside Your Rockwall Home

November 15, 2022 - Rodents

Rodents are mammals that generally remain among the most troublesome pests that enter homes. One common shared characteristic among rodents is having overgrown front teeth (incisors) that cause these critters to grind their teeth and gnaw on things continuously. A rodent chewing on electrical wiring in your home might create a potential fire hazard.

Your home represents a significant investment worthy of professionally performed services.

Signs Of Rodents Living In Your Home

What are some of the most common signs or indications that suggest a rodent intrusion? Look for some of the following: 

  • As primarily nocturnal creatures, many homeowners will hear rodents as they scurry around at night. 
  • Look for damage to property, such as insulation, fabrics, and other materials that rodents might gather for constructing nests. 
  • As rodent infestations progress, foul odors often emerge as a result of accumulations of feces, urine, and dead rodents.
  • You may notice damaged packaging and scattered dried food items in pantries or cupboards.  

Property owners must remember the importance of removing attractants from yard areas adjacent to the structure, as many of these passing rodents will likely capitalize on opportunities to venture indoors. 

Where Do Rodents Like To Hide?

In outdoor areas, rodents will often hide within firewood storage piles. Once indoors, rodents commonly enter basements, crawlspaces, or attics and will seek out hidden nesting spots within walls. 

DIY Tips To Get Rid Of Nuisance Rodents 

Are you wondering how to get rid of rodents in your house? Many of the types of rodents in this region pose challenges for local homeowners who attempt do-it-yourself home pest control options often sold by local home improvement stores or online retailers. Many of these mass-market products, such as aerosol sprays, traps, and baiting stations, prove ineffective against larger rodent infestations. Weeks or months later, many of these individuals find themselves experiencing prolonged frustration as mice, rats, or other critters still persist. 

Take the best initial step when responding to these types of concerns by contacting a professional pest exterminator with the experience needed for safely and completely ousting these unwanted creatures.
