Rodents are mammals that rapidly breed and can be found all over the world. In the New Orleans area, two of the most common rodents are rats and mice. Not only do rats and mice carry diseases that can harm you and your family, but they can chew and gnaw on your property’s infrastructure causing expensive damage. If your home or building is experiencing a rodent problem, it’s important to have them removed before they can reproduce and make the problem worse. Pied Piper Pest Control is here to provide the greater New Orleans area with professional rodent control services.
How Do Rodents Get Into Your Home?
Rats and mice can enter your home or building through tiny holes and cracks that appear far too small for them to get through. Once the rodents are in your home, they’ll look for places to nest that are out of sight and close to a food source. This could be anywhere from underneath cabinets to inside your sheetrock or drywall. Once the rodents have settled in your home, they will begin to rapidly reproduce. A female rat can give birth to up to 12 babies at a time, so it’s important to remove them from your home as soon as possible, before the problem gets out of hand. If you notice small, dark droppings that are about the size of a grain of rice or if you hear scratching noises in your walls, that is usually a tell-tale sign that there are rodents taking up residence in your home.
How Can I Get Rats and Mice Out of My Home?
The fastest and most effective way to remove rodents from your home is by contacting a pest control professional like Pied Piper Pest Control. This will also ensure that the rodents don’t make their way back into your home. Other than hiring a pest control company, there are a few do-it-yourself methods for getting rats and mice out of your home. The most effective at-home solution for rodent removal is by using store bought traps. You should place these traps in areas that you think the mice or rats are frequently traveling across. A good spot would be in the same spot that you’ve found droppings. Other solutions include using rodent repellent sprays and employing a cat.
