Mice and Rats in Buena Park, California

Not only are most people disgusted by the thought of rats or mice in their home, but these rodents also pose a number of health threats. Mice and rats have been documented to carry:

  • Plague
  • South American Arenaviruses
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
  • Leptospirosis
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Salmonellosis
  • And other diseases

Even if a rat or mouse doesn’t carry diseases, it is still going to be a nuisance in your home. To keep their teeth from getting too long, rats and mice are going to chew on anything in sight. It is not uncommon to find chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are involved. Nothing will stop a rat. It will chew through anything on its way to food. In fact, they will even chew through a wall if they think there is food on the other side.

Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our Buena Park rodent control specialists can help you with.

We’ve included a list of the common areas where we find rodents navigating in homes. The common areas are:

  • Lower corners of your attic
  • Around doors
  • Around your water pipes
  • Around the fireplace
  • Inside the attic
  • Under kitchen cabinets

Steel wool is great for filling holes and gaps found in your home. If a hole is larger, you may consider using metal sheeting or cement to close the hole or gap. Flashing can also be used around the base of your home to prevent entry. If this all sounds like too much work for you, don’t fear. We’d be happy to send out our Buena Park rodent control experts to not only rid your home of existing rodents, but to secure it from future invasions as well.  Just give us a call at 714-576-2041 to schedule your consultation.
