The Dangers of a Rodent Infestation for Sachse, TX Homeowners

The scampering of small feet and the scratching sounds you here at night might not alarm you at first, but the noises should create a sense of urgency to contact Brinker Animal Removal. Rodents can deliver painful bites, many of which require rabies shots. After building nests, mice, rats, and squirrels turn their attention to finding food and water sources within your Sachse, TX home. Rodents typically head towards the damp basement and into the kitchen in search of easy to slice open bags of dry food.

The successful searches for food produce fecal matter that can contaminate your food. Potentially debilitating illnesses caused by rodent fecal matter contamination include Salmonella and Lassa Fever. Like other foodborne illnesses Salmonella and Lassa Fever trigger high fevers and severe stomach cramps. Protecting the health of your family should motivate you to contact Brinker Animal Removal immediately for rodent removal services.

Brinker Animal Removal Tips for Rodent Prevention

To prevent rodents from gaining access to food, our team of licensed and bonded rodent removal specialists recommend our customers store food in airtight plastic containers. Rodents-especially mice-are excellent climbers, which means even if you store bags of food inside of a shut cabinet, mice can climb along the side of the cabinet and wait for the moment you let your guard down by forgetting to shut the cabinet door. We also suggest Sachse, Texas homeowners ventilate damp areas in the basement to prevent moisture from collecting on the floor. Seal gaps between water pipes and home openings, as well as replace mortar and weather stripping to prevent a rodent invasion. If you store firewood for generating warmth during winter, make sure to stack the wood at least 20 feet away from the nearest entrance to your home.
