Rodents

Rodents, mainly mice and rats, are a fairly common problem in Norwalk. Rodents are notorious for getting into homes and creating large families. You need to get to the rats and mice before this happens.

Mice and Rats in Norwalk, California

Along with being disgusting, rats and mice can also pose a health hazard to your family. Mice and rats have been documented to carry:

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

Even if a Norwalk rodent doesn’t carry a disease, they’re still not something you want crawling around in your home. Rats and mice will often chew on electric wires and try to raid your stash of food. Nothing will stop a rat. It will chew through anything on its way to food. Rats will even chew through walls if they think there is food on the other side.

Rodents are among the worst pests to endure; call us for help!

Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any Norwalk rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our Norwalk rodent control specialists can perform for you.

We’ve included a list of the common areas where we find Norwalk rodents navigating in homes. The common areas are:

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

Fill any small holes and gaps you find with steel wool which is kept in place with caulking around the edges. Larger holes can be fixed with metal sheeting, cement, lath metal or screen, or hardware cloth. Flashing near the base of your home is another alternative that’s available. We know this sounds like a lot to do, but don’t worry. Not only can our Norwalk rodent control professionals get rid of your existing rodent problem, but they can prevent future mice and rats from being able to enter your home.
