Protect Your Home from Rodents in Plantation, FL

 

Not all pests in Plantation, FL are the same. Exterminating insects, rodents and birds from your home all require different strategies and techniques. One of the most problematic home invaders are rats and mice. Rodents can be difficult to eliminate because as mammals they have the instincts and intelligence to avoid traps and other rodent control devices. Once they’ve invaded your home, they can quickly multiply and colonize in your attic or burrow under concrete and porches. They can ultimately cause structural damage to your property and carry a variety of diseases. If you’ve discovered signs of a rodent infestation, it’s time to take charge and call Accurate Pest Control, Inc. right away.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, rats and mice spread more than 35 diseases. You don’t have to handle a rodent to become ill. Rodents can spread disease through their feces, urine, saliva and through rodent bites. They’re also carriers of dangerous parasites such as ticks, mites or fleas.

Usually the first sign of rodent infestation are mouse droppings, which are often found in cabinets, drawers or closets. Rodents are nocturnal animals and can be often heard crawling in your ceilings, walls and attics at night.  Other signs include a musky odor, or shredded paper, fabric or plant matter which can resemble a nest.

One of the best ways to prevent rats from invading your home is to seal cracks and crevices of the exterior of your home.
