Rodents Cause Foodborne Illnesses
Hungry rodents go all out to on missions to find food inside Coppell, Texas homes. The first place to search for food is in the kitchen, where careless homeowners leave out bags of dry food, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables. Rodents dig their sharp teeth into dry food bags and within seconds, the bags rip open and free lunch falls on the floor. Rats, mice, and squirrels also have no problem taking the family pet’s food. Anything edible within easy access is fair game for hungry rodents.
If eating your food and leaving a mess behind is not bad enough, what do you think happens to the food consumed by rodents? Eventually, rodents roaming through your home will leave fecal matter everywhere. Pathogen-laden fecal matter creates a dangerous health issue for you and your family. When rodents enter a food storage area, the critters walk on food and the packages that secure food. It only takes a few seconds for fecal matter to contaminate food sources. Foodborne illnesses like Salmonella, Lassa Fever, and lymphocytic Choriomeningitis can induce nausea, as well as produce intense fever.
Rodent Proofing Your Coppell, TX Home
After we successfully trap and remove rodents from Coppell, TX homes, the next to do item on our list involves teaching our clients how to remain rodent free. We recommend storing all of your dry food in airtight metal containers. Stainless steel is an effective metal to deter rats, mice, and squirrels from chewing their way to a food jackpot. You should store airtight stainless steel containers within tightly sealed cabinets and pantries. We have worked with homeowners who installed locks that prevented cabinet and pantry doors from inadvertently opening. Another strategy we implement to prevent rodent invasions is to eliminate every water source. From the clogged drain near the garden to the leaky pipe in the attic, thirsty rodents lap up water that you should eliminate. We also suggest our clients ventilate the attic and basement by occasionally running a fan to prevent small water pools.
Efficient Two-Step Planning Process
Brinker Animal Removal has devised a simple and efficient process for planning rodent removal projects. First, we schedule an initial meeting to learn about the extent of your critter control problem. Our first visit includes a thorough inspection of your home. We pay special attention to typical rodent hiding areas that include the attic and basement. After the first meeting, we spend a day or two brainstorming ideas to come up with a plan to complete an affordable rat, mice, and squirrel removal project. We present our proposal and if you agree with our plan, we both sign a contract written in easy to understand language.
