RODENT PROOFING & REMOVAL

How Do Rodents Get Into Your Home?

Pests and rodents can squeeze themselves into the tiniest holes, cracks, or crevices in your home. All holes and cracks, no matter how small, is an invitation for the critters to make a home in your attic.

They can climb trees that are near your attic, but also enter through other ways such as holes in your roof, through your garage and into the walls where they can nest in your warm attic insulation. Getting your attic rodent-proofed is the only way to keep them out permanently.

    Attics Attract Rodents and Pests

    Attics/ lofts are warm and convenient for rodents and other animals because they are attempting to escape the cold. That box of Christmas decorations is the best and coziest place to curl up into. Even worse, they will crawl into your fuzzy, warm insulation and make a nest for their family!

    Insulation is the ideal place for rodents to breed in, as attics are safe havens for pests. It’s dark, quiet, and people rarely are in it. Regardless of why rodents and pests love attics, Attic Projects remove the waste and damage that they leave behind after rodent-proofing, making sure that the rodent problem is eliminated for good.

    Are Rodents Really Harmful to Your Health?

    Rodents can carry extremely harmful bacteria, dangerous diseases, and allergens that cause respiratory issues and illnesses and even death. If you find rodents in your home, you need to get the problem eradicated right away! Call Attic Geeks for a free inspection (510) 859-4178.

    Rodents and their infectious diseases should not be taken lightly. The diseases can lead to fatal  respiratory problems for humans. Mice and rats can carry and spread 35+ diseases. Whether you are handling alive or dead rodents, feces, urine, bites, or saliva, you have to be extremely careful and cautious — which is why it should be left to the professionals.

    Rodents that are infected, can infect people with fleas, mites, and ticks! Some even carry ringworms and tapeworms that people can contract.

    The most common diseases that are transmitted include:

    • Hantavirus
    • Salmonellosis
    • Leptospirosis
    • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis

    Although mice and other small animals can seem cute, they are hazardous to your health and your home.

    Why You Shouldn’t DIY Rodent Removal

    Removing harmful decaying rodents, or live rodents, without the proper equipment, can be harmful. Rodent removal should not be your Saturday DIY project. Poisons and traps are only temporary and won’t prevent the rodents from returning.

    Only professionals can find every point of entry and seal them for good. Our rodent removal and rodent-proofing specialists use state-of-the-art cleaners and sprays that will sanitize the germs and bacteria that the rodents carried into your home and left behind in their urine and feces. When you are suffering from a rodent infestation, ridding your home of the rodents yourself is strongly recommended against.
