Rodents Are No MATCH FOR TERMINIX

According to the Centers for Disease Control an Prevention, worldwide, rats and mice carry over 35 different diseases. These diseases can be spread to humans directly, through handling of rodents, through contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva, or through rodent bites. Diseases carried by rodents can also be spread to humans indirectly, through ticks, mites or fleas that have fed on an infected rodent.

facts, identification, & control

rodents can be difficult to control. Below is some general information about how their behaviors can affect your home.
  • Entry: Most rodents are great at fitting into tight spaces. This means that they can get into almost anywhere to get into your home. They usually enter through gutters, cracks in roofs and soffits, plumbing exposures and cracks in the home's foundation.
  • Dangers: Many rodents are known to carry various diseases and bacteria that are potentially harmful to you and your family. They can pass off these harmful germs through their secretions and coming into contact with their fur or hair.
  • Nest Locations: They can nest about anywhere in and around your home; in walls, attics, garages, even below the ground under your home's foundation.
  • Colony Size:  Rodents are social creatures, therefore they travel in packs while searching for food and shelter. If one rodent is spotted, that usually means there are at least several more in the near vicinity.
  • Destructive: All rodents have two front teeth that they sharpen by chewing wire, cardboard, wood and any other coarse materials that come across their path. This can lead to potential fires and structural damage in your home.
