Signs of a rodent infestation

If you have spotted a rat or mouse on your property, you likely have a rodent problem. Because rodents are nocturnal, you will not see many during daytime hours. If rats are active on your property during the day, chances are you have a very severe infestation. On the other hand, it’s also possible to have rats and not see any rodents at all. Fortunately, there are other signs you can look for to determine whether you have rodents. Some examples are:

  • rodent droppings
  • tiny footprints in dusty areas
  • rodent nests
  • shredded strips of garbage
  • gnaw marks in walls and food packaging
  • scampering sounds inside the walls, attic or ceiling

Causes of rodent infestations

Even if you keep your space clean, rodents may target your property. The following rat-friendly factors may be present in your Northridge home.

Standing water

Rat populations set up shop in close proximity to food and water sources. If water pools in your yard after rain or if you have a birdbath, you may be unknowingly inviting rats. Eliminating standing water from your property will help curb rodent infestations. If you have pets, avoid leaving their water bowls out for extended periods.

Animal feed

Rats will also take advantage of unattended pet food and accessible bird seed. Be sure to store animal food in sturdy, airtight containers. Consider using a weight-sensitive birdfeeder that will not support squirrels and rodents.

Clutter

Rats and mice love clutter. Bulky, dusty furniture serves as the perfect protective covering for rats in a secluded basement. Rodents shred fabrics and paper materials and use the scraps to build nests. Make your space less hospitable for rodents by decluttering often.

Unclean conditions

Most people know that garbage cans attract rats and mice. Rodents are scent-driven creatures. Store garbage in containers that close tightly to reduce odor. If you do yard work, quickly bag and dispose of your yard waste. Rats can take up residence in piles of leaves and mulch. The same rats can migrate from outside into your home.

Rat-proofing services in Northridge

Whether you have recently moved into a new home or if you have a lingering rat problem on your property, we can rat-proof your space. Rats and mice can enter through cracks, crevices, and holes that are as small as ¼-inch in width. Mice and rats can also gnaw at smaller holes to make them large enough for entry. We’ll seal every crack and crevice to keep rodents out. Our technicians use multiple materials to make it more difficult for rodents to chew their way into your space.

Our holistic rat control strategy

Simply killing the rats on your property won’t permanently resolve an infestation. Our multifaceted holistic approach to rodent control delivers reliable, long-lasting results. We understand that rats use pheromones to communicate. When a rat enters your home, it creates a chemical trail. The same rat can repeatedly use the trail to come and go at will. Rodents grow their popultions by bringing additional rodents with them each time they return. As the new rodents venture to other parts of your property and create more scent trails along the way, you’ll eventually find yourself with an infestation.

We eliminate the scent trails to prevent rodents from returning after we’ve outsted them. With no scent trails to follow, rats and mice will be unable to return to their hiding places on your property.

Repairing damage caused by rats

Rodents can do significant damage to your property. Rats that live inside walls tend to chew electrical wiring and potentially cause a blackout or even an electrical fire. Roof rats compromise your roof by gnawing holes in wood and other roofing materials. Rodents enjoy burrowing into attic insulation to create cozy nests for themselves. As they burrow, their tiny claws shred through the material, diminishing its effectiveness. As a result, you may see a sharp increase in your cooling bills.

Aside from providing effective rodent control solutions, 360 Rodent Control also employs licensed and experienced professionals who can provide a variety of home repair services. Some of the services we offer in addition to rodent control include:

  • Roof repair
  • Insulation installation, repair, and maintenance
  • AC services
  • HVAC duct installation, repair, maintenance, and sealing
  • Radiant barrier installation
  • Electrical wiring repair and installation

Attic and crawl space cleaning

If you have noticed a lingering odor you can’t get rid of, there may be rodents in your attic or crawl space. Rats gravitate toward secluded areas like attics and crawl spaces where they can live undetected for extended periods. We will thoroughly clean your attic and crawl space to eliminate all biological contaminants rats and mice tend to leave behind. Not only will your home be rat-free, but that lingering rodent smell will be a thing of the past.

FAQs

How long does it take to get rid of a rodent infestation?

Our holistic approach to rodent control will have you rat-free after one treatment. We’ll even return for check-up visits in the future to ensure the rats haven’t returned.

Is it true that rodents carry diseases?

Rats and mice can spread diseases to humans. Rodents are capable of transmitting plague, hantaviruses, salmonella, and other illnesses to humans.

How do rats spread illnesses to humans?

Humans can possibly contract an illness if bitten or scratched by a disease-carrying rat or mouse. Eating rat-contaminated food and coming into contact with biological materials like rat urine, droppings, and dander are other means through which humans contract illnesses directly from rodents. Humans can also become ill if bitten by flea or tick that has previously bitten a disease-carrying rat.
