A rodent infestation can be a devastating discovery for homeowners. You may see a rodent run across a room, hear one in a wall, or find evidence that one has been in your kitchen. Whether a squirrel, rat, mouse, or a hamster you thought went missing, it’s extremely unpleasant having rodents in your home.
Rodents make up about 40% of mammals and there are roughly 2,000 different species native to almost every land mass. They are very diverse in their biological makeup and way of life, making them capable of living in any terrestrial habitat. Although rodents are generally not dangerous to humans, often their feces carry diseases such as hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, Tularemia and Salmonella. Droppings in your kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom could cause illness. Additionally, rodents can cause property damage by chewing through wires, car engines, insulation, and other problems. A rodent in your home is upsetting and stressful. Call the professionals at Squared Away Pest Control for rodent extraction.
