Whether you think rodents are cute or you have a true phobia, most people would agree that they don’t want rodents invading their home. Wild animals belong in the wild. Unfortunately, some wild animals didn’t get that memo and are quite happy to make themselves at home in your house. If that is the case for you, it is best to leave the rodent problem in your Souderton home to the professionals. Let's take a closer look at the problems they cause and what you can do to avoid them.

Rodents are dangerous

They may not look dangerous; they’re small and furry, after all. However, they can cause some serious health problems for the people who encounter them.

They spread disease through their fecal matter. Rats and mice leave behind droppings wherever they go. These contaminate countertops, food-prep surfaces, and food. That leaves you and your family susceptible to a host of illnesses and diseases, including Salmonella and, the serious respiratory illness, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome.

They also introduce parasites, such as tapeworm, ticks, and fleas, to your home.

Rodents are destructive

For such small animals, rodents can do a lot of damage to your home. Not only do they contaminate it with their urine and feces, but they build nests in your walls, attic, or other areas. They also chew holes in walls, cause damage to insulation, and destroy your belongings. If all of that isn’t bad enough, they can also nibble away at electrical wiring, opening your house up to the dangers of fire.

Rodents are hard to get rid of

If you end up with a mouse in your house, there’s a good chance there is more than one. Mouse traps can catch a mouse or two but are rarely effective at eliminating every mouse that gets inside.

Poison can be effective, but it’s also dangerous to work with and could accidentally harm your family or pets. Plus, if it works, there’s a good chance you’ll end up with dead rodents in the walls of your home.
