Along with being disgusting, rats and mice can also pose a health hazard to your family. According to the CDC, San Pedro rodents can carry the following diseases:

  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Plague
  • Salmonellosis
  • Rat-Bite Fever
  • Tularemia

Diseased or not, San Pedro rodents aren’t something you want crawling around in your home. It is not uncommon to find chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are involved. Rats will chew through anything that stands between them and food. Rats will even chew through walls if they think there is food on the other side. Unfortunately, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. Mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar.

This is usually how San Pedro rodents originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that wasn’t sealed off or even discovered. That is why it is very important that any San Pedro rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our San Pedro rodent control specialists can perform for you. Call 310-499-2281 to learn more!

Below is a list of common places to find holes in your home that can be used by a mouse or rat. The common areas:

  • Lower corners of your attic
  • Around doors
  • Around your water pipes
  • Around the fireplace
  • Inside the attic
  • Under kitchen cabinets

Fill any small holes and gaps you find with steel wool which is kept in place with caulking around the edges. If a hole is larger, you may consider using metal sheeting or cement to close the hole or gap. Flashing can also be used around the base of your home to prevent entry. This probably sounds overwhelming, but don’t fret. We’d be happy to send out our San Pedro rodent control experts to not only rid your home of existing rodents, but to secure it from future invasions as well.
