Rodents, Mice & Rats

Rodents, Mice & Rats

Rodents, mice and rats” are notorious pests, and because they tend to breed quickly, can become a significant problem if appropriate action is not taken to remove them from a property.

Rodents can be drawn to a variety of areas throughout a property, including in the kitchen, living areas, and garbage collection areas. Rodents may cause a wealth of problems for the resident or business owner.

Rats and mice may cause substantial physical damage to a property. Rats and mice need to continuously gnaw on hard materials in order to keep their teeth at an appropriate length. This habitual gnawing can result in damage to structural components such as walls, door-frames, skirting boards and more. Other materials that can be damaged by gnawing include wires and cables, upholstery and similar materials, books, and even food containers. The result can be a building that is structurally unsound-or where fire risks are  increased.

Rats and mice not only cause damage to a property, but they leave droppings, urine stains, unpleasant odors, and smear-marks are common in properties plagued by rodents. These have a negative effect on the overall appearance of a property.

Rodents have a reputation for spreading diseases. Rodents are responsible for spreading more than 35 types of serious diseases worldwide. These diseases can be transmitted via several different means. Rodents, mice and rats, urine and feces may contaminate food, for example, and indirect contamination may occur from interactions with pets or insects infected by a rodent-carried disease.
