Rats and mice are common pests around the Southeast, but it’s important to note that rodents are not only a nuisance, they can be destructive and disease carrying creatures. There are many potential threats posed by having rodents in and within close proximity of the home.
Rodent droppings can cause allergic reactions. As vectors, droppings are capable of introducing harmful bacteria into areas of your home that require sanitary conditions. Fleas, Ticks, Mites and other parasitic passengers can also use rodents as transportation into your home.
Our Rat and Mouse Control Plans
Strategic Industries is competent with the species of rats and mice common in homes throughout the Southeast. We offer rat and mouse control services, both to customers who already have a rodent problem, as well as those looking to prevent one.
Rats and mice can enter a structure in a number of ways, and because their bodies are so malleable, the smallest entry points can leave your property vulnerable.
A common issue we see with rodents is the damage they cause. Chewing openings large enough to secure entry; gnawing through insulation and wiring; consuming food from pantries and kitchen cabinets – all of this destruction is possible when you have rodents in the home.
To remedy and prevent future issues, we offer an array of rodent prevention and control services that can be customized to meet your specific needs.
Prevent Rats and Mice Year Around
While our Service Specialists will remove the root cause of your issue and treat your rodent problem safely and efficiently, knowing what to do to prevent rats and mice from entering your home is a great first step in reducing the potential for an infestation.
Here are a few things you can do on your own:
- Maintaining sanitary conditions is key – keep dishes washed and put away, wipe up spills and throw away discarded food.
- Keep clutter to a minimum.
- Identify nesting material, and keep it stored or remove it. Stacks of papers, boxes and fabric should be stored higher than a foot off of the ground.
- In the yard, keep dense foliage to a manageable minimum to reduce habitat space.
We’ve spent years refining our rodent removal and prevention treatment programs at Strategic Industries, and depending upon your specific circumstances, we can customize a rat and mouse control solution for you.
