Rodent Infestations In Suburban Areas
Too many rats in an area will tend to cause the rodents to fight each other and even kill for territory. Thus, it is common to have dead animal problems, and a large majority of the calls we receive deal with dead rodents in walls. Rodents can crawl into small spaces and climb most areas with their sharp claws.
Rodent Diseases And Bacteria
Rodents are carriers of bacteria caused diseases. Once rats are inside your home they can easily contaminate your environment. In addition, rats also carry ticks, fleas, and parasites making rats a major health risk. Remember, it was rats that caused the plague that killed millions before proper medical care and vaccines were developed. The symptoms and signs of a contracted infection to watch for are the same as symptoms for the common cold or flu. If you are aware that you have rodents and you or family members become ill then you should seek medical attention.
Exterior Inspection For Dead Rodents In Your Walls In Bartlett TN
The quickest way to determine the species of animal involved is to look in your attic for fecal droppings. Check the insulation as this is where rats will often nest because it is soft and warm. If your attic is one that happens to be inaccessible to people, check around the foundation and roof line on the outside of your home for chew marks as well as any actual or potential access points. It is not at all uncommon to see one or more golf ball size holes that rats have chewed allowing them access to the inside of your home.
Things You Can Do To Reduce Attracting Rodents
To reduce the ability for rodents to gain access to the inside of your home there are some preventative measures that you can take on your own. For instance, cut back any trees or bushes that are close to the sides of your home or low hanging branches that are hanging over the roof.
Check to ensure that no trash or leftover foods are left on the ground that could be attracting rodents to your property, including leftover dog or cat food from feeding your pets outside. The only way to ensure that an animal cannot get into your home with the potential to die somewhere inside is to do exclusion work which is sealing all the potential and actual access points, cracks and crevices, so that no areas remain open for them to gain access.
