Do you suspect you may have rats or mice under your home? If so, you're not alone. Don't worry though, we specialize in the removal of rats or mice from under your home. Have you been hearing scratching or gnawing sounds from rats or mice trying to get under your home? Apex Wildlife Control can handle any rat or mice issue you have hassle-free.
Rats and mice will tend to go under homes in the heat of the summer to stay cool. The attic can easily get over a hundred degrees during the summer months. You can find rats trying to go lower to the ground in the shade where it is cooler. Since heat rises this is the perfect place to nest and eat. This can be bad for any underground pipes or wires.
Many times rats and mice get under the home by way of vents, foundation gaps, and crawl space doors. Rats can go unnoticed because they fit in holes as small as a quarter.
Rats and mice may be small, but they can do a ton of damage. Once they are within breeding age, just one male and female together can have up to 1500 babies in a year! And that's just those two rats. Their offspring can have even more! This is how easily a rat infestation can begin.
Rats and mice chew to keep their teeth filed down. If they didn't chew constantly, their teeth would become too long and eventually the rat or mouse would be unable to eat. Did you know that a rat's teeth can grow up to SIX INCHES in a year? Imagine a rat with teeth like a walrus. Now that's an image that would be hard to forget!
Chewed electrical wires could lead to sparks and fire, so it is extremely dangerous to not handle rat issues right away. And if rats chew into your water lines, this could create rotting wood and potential mold issues.
One way to lower chances of rat and mice infestations is to get rid of garbage. Don't leave trash bags outside. Any brush piles or compost piles should also be cleaned up. In addition, make sure there are no piles of debris for rats to hide under.
Cleanliness is one of the best preventative measures against rats and mice. Having rats around your home will also attract other predators into your area. All kinds of predators can smell the fecal droppings and urine and will come looking for the source of the smell.
Did you know that raccoons will eat rats and mice? That's right! Not only raccoons, but opossums, snakes and skunks will also come looking for a tasty rat or mouse if you have any around. Raccoons and snakes often make their way inside an attic looking for an easy food source. Raccoons will try to take care of your rat and mice problem for you, but these masked bandits can cause an incredible amount of damage to your home in their own way. Unfortunately, once an animal breaches your home it can create a a domino effect with other wildlife following in its footsteps. Your best bet is to take care of your rodent problem yourself before other wildlife finds discovers the "free buffet" at your home!
