Rats and rodents are seen as vermin who are dirty, spread disease and eat your floorboards. To some extent, these standards are valid because rats can spread illnesses such as hantavirus and leptospirosis. However, these rodents also will gnaw away at your furniture and home if given the opportunity.
Since they enjoy devouring your leftovers, pantry, and fruit trees, you may see them in and about your property, increasing the risk of disease and contamination. Therefore, along with trapping and removing these rats and mice, it is best to take measures to prevent their reoccurrence with some simple tactics. What you can do is call in Horn Pest Management to take care of these not-so-friendly furry creatures to help advise on what in your home may be inviting them in.
Danger to health and safety
Since rodents can breed in large numbers and quickly, they should be addressed as soon as their presence is known. We also advise you to contact a professional when you see them to prevent spreading diseases and contaminating your home with their droppings. They often like to nest in unseen places, such as your attic, crawl space, and between the walls.
Don’t let their small size fool you, as they can chew through essential structures in the home, including electrical wiring. Some house fires can be attributed to these rodent species. If they manage to get to essential cables, they can cause thousands of dollars of damage to the main lines and appliances on your property.
