Bryan/College Station Rodent and Mice Infestations: Rodent Pest Control Services
Rodents and mice are common fall pests that will build nests in insulation, chew through electric wires and fit through unimaginably small spaces in the foundation or entry ways. In addition, these pests often carry diseases, fleas, mites, lice and ticks. Therefore, it is crucial to protect your Bryan/College Station home or business from these common fall pests.
No Home or Business is Immune from Rat and Mouse Infestations
The age of your structure or the materials utilized to build it have nearly no impact on your vulnerability to rodent and mice infestations. These common fall pests can climb easily, so having a high floor does not put you out of their reach.
Rodents are quite at home here in Bryan/College Station and are common in every neighborhood.
These Common Fall Pests Can Go Unseen
Rats and mice can hide almost anywhere in a structure and most of their damage occurs at night. It is possible to have dozens in your home but not even see one.
However, their droppings, fur, dirt trails and damage from their gnawing is more likely to be noticed.
City Pest Control Tips for Preventing Bryan/College Station Rodent and Mice
Exclude these Common Fall Pests Out of Your Home or Business
Before trying to get rid of the current rodents in your home, it is important to close off their entry point. Filling or sealing cracks, crevices and holes in your foundation, sliding and around your structure will achieve this. Installing chimney caps and covering covered with screens will achieve this. All torn screens over windows and doors should be replaced.
In addition, you should create a deterrent around your foundation with crushed rock.
Make sure to seal off access to food and keep premises clean of debris and dirt. Clutter can hide points of entry and offers a nice place to nest.
In addition, clutter can become a nutrition source. While rodents prefer actual food, they will chew glue, leather and other materials.
