Rodent Control Laurel
Laurel Rodent Control
In the Laurel area, rodents can get into your home in ways that you may not expect. Their flexible bodies can fit through a hole the size of a quarter. At All American Pest Services, we provide comprehensive rodent control services throughout Sarasota and Manatee County.
With numerous open entries and vulnerable places around the rooflines and foundations of building, rodents gain easy admittance. Trees that overhang a home or office building provide access to these open entries and vulnerable places that may allow them to enter. Professional removal and excluding your home (closing off open entry points) is the best and safest approach to eradicating rodents.
Do Your Hear Scratching Sounds in your Walls and Ceiling?
Once inside, rodents can travel within the walls causing unseen damage. They travel so quickly, making holes in walls and pantries to steal food for their nests. While you are relaxing at home, they have free run of your house from the basement to the attic. Rodents chew to keep their incisors sharp and will chew on wood, wires and almost anything they can find.
When you suspect that you have rodents in your house, you must take immediate action to protect the health of your family. Getting inside is no problem for them, but getting rid of them is not a task that you want to do alone. Spring loaded traps are dangerous to set, and you then have a dead rodent to dispose of if they work.
A myth about poison is that poisons will make rodents leave your home to find water. This is not always true. In many cases rodent poison acts quickly and the rodent will die trapped between the walls where it creates a horrible smell for weeks. Rats and mice are intent on staying in your home, and it takes professional knowledge and experience to succeed in ridding your home of these unwanted guests.
Health Hazards Caused by Rats & Mice
Serious diseases can result from bites, scratches, saliva and urine from rodents. Fleas can transfer rodent-borne contagents to humans. Rodent droppings and dander can produce allergic reactions. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention one of the most common diseases that can occur is hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS). A respiratory disease that affects humans who have rodents in their homes, HPS is a severe condition that is sometimes fatal. Other diseases directly transmitted by rodents include hemorrhagic fever, Lassa fever and leptospirosis.
