The word rodent comes from the French word, rodere, meaning “to gnaw.” Makes sense – rats and mice are very effective at gnawing and chewing through barriers and causing billions of damage to homeowners each year. Rodents commonly invade attics and can damage your insulation, electrical wires, plumbing pipes, air conditioning ducting, and more. They are also carriers of fleas and disease, potentially transferring diseases such as Typhus, Rat Bite Fever, Leptospirosis and Hantavirus.
To repair damage and prevent further damage or disease from occurring, time is of the essence. One pair of rats can produce up to 84 offspring annually, and because rats reach sexually maturity at 4-5 weeks, a rat population can exponentially increase from 2 rats to over 1,200 rats in a single year. If the environment is right, such as a warm home with access to food, your rodent problem can explode.
WHEN YOU NEED A RELIABLE RODENT-CONTROL SOLUTION, GUARDIAN IS EQUIPPED AND TRAINED TO ADDRESS YOUR PROBLEM
Guardian will complete a thorough inspection of your property and take a multi-step, customizable approach so that you receive instant guaranteed solutions and lasting protection from re-infestation.
- Rodent Proofing – For effective control, it is important to make it impossible for rodents to enter and invade your property. This includes thoroughly identifying potential entryways throughout your home, checking for cracks, crevices, small holes and gaps, and sealing them up.
- Rodent Trapping – For immediate control, capturing the current culprits is a must. However, trapping alone, or on your own, is not enough to control the problem.
- Rodent Sanitation – Rodents in your attic are a huge health concern due to the fact they spread diseases that are left behind from their feces and urine. Disinfecting and sanitizing your attic will address health concerns associated with ectoparasites, germs and bacteria.
- Rodent Prevention – Guardian will provide you professional advice about how to properly remove internal and external attractors so that rodents won’t find your property an appealing site to make a home.
Our Rodent Exclusion Service Plan is backed with a minimum 2 year protection plan. If they come back, so will we.
Common Signs of Rodents
What should you look for if you suspect you have unwanted guests?
Aside from physically seeing rodents, it’s important to regularly inspect the interior and exterior of your home or business for signs of an infestation, including rodent droppings, gnaw marks, nests, damaged goods and greasy rub marks from their oily fur. You might also be hearing movement or scurrying noises coming from walls or ceilings when they move about.
Rodent infestation can cause tremendous damage but is also dangerous to your health. If you suspect you have rodents, take action immediately.
