Signs you have a rodent infestation
Spotting a rat on your property is an undeniable sign that you may have a rodent infestation. There are also more subtle indicators that suggest the presence of an infestation. Your property may be hosting rodents if you observe:
- rodent droppings
- tiny rodent-sized footprints in dusty areas
- bite marks on food packaging, trash cans, or walls
- the sound of small animals scampering inside the walls or ceiling
- the ammonia-like smell of rodent urine
You may have an infestation long before you actually see a rodent on your property. Contact 360 Rodent Control immediately if you observe signs of rodents in or near your space.
Why call a Sherman Oaks rodent control company
A single rodent sighting may not seem like a big deal. But if you've already seen a rat, time is of the essence. Rodents are capable of having large litters several times a year. If left unaddressed, the occasional rodent sighting can quickly turn into a substantial infestation. Not only do rats multiply quickly, but they also spread diseases that can be harmful to humans. Protect your property and your health by calling a professional Sherman Oaks pest control company.
We’ll get rid of them and clean the mess they left behind.
How rodents affect human health
Rats and mice are unsanitary creatures that can negatively affect the health of humans. An infected rodent can directly cause illness in humans through scratching and biting. Humans can also become ill if they touch contaminated bodily fluids from infected rodents. People who have respiratory ailments may develop breathing difficulties if they inhale rodent dander. Fleas and ticks can spread diseases from rats to humans if they bite a human after biting an infected rat. Examples of rat-borne illnesses include:
- rat-bite fever
- lymphocytic choriomeningitis
Resolving a rodent infection is critical to protecting your health. We’ll eliminate the rodents and all biological contaminants rats and mice leave behind.
How rodents damage your property
In addition to spreading diseases, rodents cause property damage that may cost you money. Rats and mice gnaw and shred through walls, insulation, and other materials to create passages, build nests, and access food. We’re not just rodent specialists. Our team also includes certified, experienced technicians who can repair the damage rodents commonly do to the homes they invade.
When rodents live inside walls, they have direct access to electrical wiring. Mice and rats gnaw through wires and increase the risk of a blackout or electrical fire. In some cases, rodents may be electrocuted, leaving smelly carcases inside the walls. After we eliminate the wall infestation, our qualified repair technicians can repair damage to your electrical wires caused by rodents.
Rats are attracted to attic insulation. They burrow into the material to make cozy nests for themselves. Rodents also enjoy eating certain types of insulation. If rats or mice have damaged your home’s insulation, you will likely notice an increase in your air conditioning bill. We’ll get rid of the rats and repair the damage. Our many years of experience in the insulation industry have allowed us to discover cost-saving measures that can make insulation repair more affordable.
Roof rats are a variety of rodent that specifically invades roofs. They gnaw their way through roofing materials and take up residence in the highest parts of a building structure. Holes in your roof can be the beginning of more serious damage and a decrease in your home’s value. If you think you hear rodents in your roof, attic, or ceiling, give us a call. We’ll examine your roof and attic and determine the size of the infestation. Our holistic approach to rodent control will prevent the rodents from returning. If your roof has sustained damage, our team is qualified to repair or replace your roof.

What are the disadvantages to using over-the-counter pest control products?
Over-the-counter pest control products usually only address one aspect of your rodent problem. They can also expose pets and small children to toxins. Depending on the type of rats you have, over-the-counter products can be ineffective.
