Mice & Rats

Mice & RatsMice are known to spread over 35 different types of diseases including Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), leptospirosis, and salmonellosis. Mice are susceptible to fleas, ticks, and mites which also carry diseases that can be spread to humans. Mouse urine and feces are yet another source of bacteria and viruses.

Most repellants and sonic deterrants have not been proven to be effective against mice. Fighting a mouse problem can be expensive, time consuming, and dangerous to your health. It is often safer and easier to allow trained professionals take care of the problem.

Rats have caused more human suffering and more economic damage than any other vertabrate pest. From causing plague epidemics to rat-bite fever, whether feeding on or urinating on stored food, gnawing electric wires, rats are enemies of humankind. Statistics estimate that rats destroy 20 percent of the world's food supply every year through feeding or contamination.

Rats gnaw constantly. Their teeth are so hard that they can chew through building materials such as cinder block, aluminum siding, adobe, brick, wood, and many other things. After gnawing a hole an adult rat can compress its body and squeeze through an opening only 1/2 inch in diameter - the size of a quarter. Besides seeing a rat, signs you have a rat problem can include droppings, tracks in the mud and on dusty surfaces, and runways and burrows next to buildings, along fences, and under low vegetation and debris. Although shy, rats will attack both animals and humans when they feel cornered. Rats can pose a public health risk because they spread disease including: Rat-bite fever, Leptospirosis, Salmonellosis, and Hantavirus. Although rats are extremely fastidious, constantly cleaning themselves and each other, they often have fleas, ticks, and mites which can also spread disease to humans.
