Get Rid of Rodents in Rockwall, TX
One pregnant rat, mouse, or squirrel that enters your Rockwall, Texas home can quickly multiply into dozens of destructive wild animals. Female rats have the capability to deliver up to seven litters a year and pregnant mice can produce up to six litters per year. Each rat litter can bring 14 newborns into the world, while each mouse litter has the potential to add 10 mice in the attic or basement. What began as one sluggish pregnant rat sleeping in a nest has turned into almost 100 rats or 60 mice that run amok throughout the house.
The time has come to call the licensed and bonded team of critter control professionals at Brinker Animal Removal. For more than 35 years we have set the standard to providing efficient rodent removal services that not only trap and remove rodents, but also help Rockwall, TX homeowners prevent future mouse, squirrel, and rat infestations.
Hungry Rodents and Foodborne Illnesses
The first order of business for rodents after entering an attic or basement is to build one or more spacious nests. Then, famished squirrels, rats, and mice set off in search of food, and not the food the critters consume outdoors. Rodents want what you have conveniently left out in the kitchen, from easy to tear dry food bags to the fruits and vegetables sitting on the dining room table. With voracious appetites, rodents can clean out an entire cabinet of dry food. The question is what happens next.
All that food has to go somewhere. Rodents do not care where they leave potentially harmful fecal matter, whether you find traces of it on the basement stairs or in your dog’s food bowl. The issue is the forborne pathogens that cause serious illnesses such as Salmonella and Lassa fever. If left untreated, foodborne illnesses can cause diarrhea, high fever, and agonizing stomach cramps. A trip to the emergency room is not out of the question for someone that is exposed to a foodborne pathogen.
Rat Proofing Your Rockwall, Texas Home
Rodents such as rats possess limber joints that allow the critters to squeeze through holes and cracks that are much smaller than their body sizes. The home services experts at Brinker Animal Removal make sealing holes and cracks along the roofline and around the foundation of your home priority number one. The next rat prevention strategy involves storing dry food in airtight stainless steel containers placed in tightly shut cabinets and pantries. We also make sure fruits and vegetable remain in the bottom storage compartment of your refrigerator. We fix leaky pipes and clear clogged drains to eliminate water sources for thirsty rats. You should also store wood piles far away from your home, as rodents like rats use wood piles and thick shrubs for staging home invasions. The critters hide in vegetation until the coast is clear at night to scale a tree to reach the roof.
