At any time of the year, rodents can become a big problem, and usually not suddenly. Mice, for example, may leave fecal pellets around the kitchen, in drawers, or chew into food containers. In addition, rats are very noisy, and you can hear them running around in the walls and sub-ceiling spaces. Early on, it might just be one or two rodents, but by the end of summer is could be a hundred. That’s a crisis.
Whether you live in a single-family home, a multi-family dwelling, or have a business with rodent pest problems, we can help. It is best to deal with rodents before the population gets very large. Rodents are one of the most destructive groups of pests. We offer one-time emergency services or affordable, ongoing monthly service calls. We also have the tools and experience to effectively and efficiently deal with rodents.
Mice and Rats are Bad, but Squirrels Can Cause Serious Damage
Ground squirrels are one of the most damaging rodents for homeowners. It isn’t so much that they chew holes in your home, though they can. It is more that they tunnel and dig burrows. Once you have ground squirrels under your home, you are in trouble. Those tunnels cause weaknesses in the foundation and foundation supports. A house with a weakened foundation will sag and eventually collapse.
Tree squirrels can also be damaging. They look for denning locations, such as the attic space in your home. They will dig up the roof and chew wood to gain entrance.
Rodent control works best as an ongoing service. Rodents can appear at any time of the year, and once they are in your home, they breed. We provide comprehensive and affordable pest control service throughout the Bryan and College Station community. Give us a call with questions or to set up an appointment.
