Along with being disgusting, rodents commonly pose a health hazard to your family. Mice and rats have been shown to carry these diseases:

  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Leptospirosis
  • Plague
  • Salmonellosis
  • Rat-Bite Fever
  • Tularemia

Clearly, rodents do not all carry diseases. Regardless, they can still be quite the nuisance around your home or business as they chew on everything around. Rodents will often chew on electrical wires and raid your food stash. A rat just can’t be stopped. It will chew through anything to find food. Rats can even chew through walls, if they think there is something worth reaching on the other end.

Rats and mice can squeeze through the tiniest holes. They don’t have to chew much to get through. Rats can make it through hole the size of a quarter, while mice can get through a hole the size of a nickel. When rodents get into a home or business, it is usually through some tiny hole that no one has noticed. This is why it is so important that any holes or gaps in the house must be found first thing. This is a service that our Cerritos rodent control specialists can perform for you.

Below is a list of common locations where holes may be that rodents can get through. The common areas are:

  • Lower corners of your attic
  • Around doors
  • Around your water pipes
  • Around the fireplace
  • Inside the attic
  • Under kitchen cabinets

You can use steel wool in small holes you find and seal the edges with caulking. Larger holes can be filled in with cement, metal sheeting, screen, or hardware cloth. You could also add flashing near the base of your home. This may sound overwhelming, but there is no need to worry..
