If you are a homeowner in Houston, Texas that lived through Hurricane Harvey, you understand the major problems caused by rodent infestations.

They called Brinker Animal Removal.

Why a Rodent Infestations Creates a Sense of Urgency
A few squirrels scampering about the attic might not appear to pose a threat to your Houston, TX home. However, rodents possess razor sharp teeth that require constant fine tuning because the teeth never stop growing. Rats especially cause havoc inside area homes by chewing up everything in sight. From soft materials like clothing and magazines to seemingly impossible to destroy wooden support beams, just a few mice can leave you with thousands of dollars in a home repair bill. Rodents even chew the insulation off electrical wires.
Rodents also have voracious appetites, which means after the critters build nests in attics and basements, they head out in search of easy to access food. Where does easy to access food sit in your home? Probably in open dry food bags and fresh produce that lies in a bowl on top of the dining room table or kitchen counter. Rodents rip open plastic bags and gnaw through other types of synthetic materials to satisfy hunger pangs. The result of the foraging is fecal matter that contains potentially life threatening foodborne bacteria.
Rodent Proof Your Houston, Texas Home
The team of rodent removal experts at Brinker do much more than get rid of rats, mice, and squirrels. We also help Houston, Texas homeowners implement strategies that discourage rodents from returning to the scene of the crime. The first order of business involves sealing every hole and crack, no matter the size of the opening. Rodents have limber joints that allow the critters to squeeze through gaps that are smaller than their body sizes. We also repair mortar and weather stripping damage to put out the “You’re not welcome” mat. Another effective tactic is to store dry food in airtight stainless steel containers placed high above the kitchen floor in tightly sealed cabinets. You should also fix leaky pipes and clear clogged drains to eliminate water sources for thirsty, squirrels, rats, and mice.
