Are Rodents The Worst Pest To Have In Your Home?
What is the worst pest that invades our homes? While there is no definitive way of deciding which pest is the worst, rodents would certainly be in one of the top spots if there were a list. Not only can rodents be quite frightening and keep you up at night, they also pose another threat in the form of property damage and health risks.
When mice and rats invade, property damage is soon to follow. Whether that be in the form of ruined insulation, chewed wires, doorframes, and furniture, or gnawed pipes which can lead to flooding, the damage they can cause can be extensive. Once inside, rodents will contaminate your surfaces with harmful pathogens and their urine and feces, putting your family at risk of certain diseases. Some of the illnesses they spread include salmonellosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, mycoplasma, leptospirosis, and dysentery.
If you find signs of a rodent infestation in your home, whether that's spotting a mouse or rat, finding droppings in your kitchen cupboards or drawers, seeing gnaw marks on food containers, or finding greasy rub marks along the bottoms of your walls, you should get in touch with a rodent control professional immediately to take action against them. Rodents aren't pests that will go away on their own, and the longer you wait to address your rodent problem, the more time they'll have to wreak havoc in your home.

Rodent Control From Dandi Guaranty
Having an inspection performed prior to treatment is a necessary first step in the rodent control process. This inspection allows us to identify the type of rodent that you're dealing with, where they are spending time in your home, and which entry points they used to get inside. Different rodents have different habits, which is why this information is so important. For example, we need to handle an infestation of roof rats differently than a Norway rat infestation.
Once we know just what rodent species we're dealing with, we'll develop a rodent control plan tailored to your home's specific needs. During treatment, our first order of business is to get rid of the active infestation in your home.
To get rid of your rodents, we'll use baiting or trapping to eliminate the rodents. We place both the bait and traps in out-of-the-way locations such as attics where they are accessible to rodents but safely away from your family. If you want bait boxes placed outdoors as well, this is available for an additional fee. Our bait boxes are locked containers that rodents go into to eat the bait before leaving the box.
Once we have eliminated your rodent infestation, you'll want to make sure that it doesn't return. We offer exclusion work to seal the entry points that rodents used to access your home. This work prevents new rodents from getting inside your house, making it much more difficult for a new infestation to develop.
Our rodent control is a monthly service. Our technicians will return to your home every month to check and refill the baits and check and reset the traps. By maintaining bait and traps regularly, you receive a constant level of protection against new rodent infestations.
