Rodents can cause a lot of damage to your home, and they can even carry diseases that can be harmful to you and your family. As such, it’s important to take steps to prevent and control rodent infestations in your home. If you live in the Greater Vancouver area, you can trust Eastside Pest Control to provide you with effective and reliable rodent control services.
We’ll discuss the importance of rodent control, the signs of a rodent infestation, and how Eastside Pest Control can help you keep your home safe from these pesky pests.
Why Is Rodent Control Important?
Rodents can cause a lot of damage to your home, as they will chew through just about anything in their quest for food and shelter. They can gnaw on wires and cables, which can lead to electrical fires, and they can also damage insulation, walls, and floors. Additionally, rodents can carry diseases that can be harmful to humans, such as hantavirus, salmonella, and leptospirosis.
Signs of a Rodent Infestation
If you suspect that you have a rodent infestation, there are several signs that you can look out for. These include:
Droppings: Rodents leave droppings wherever they go, so if you see small, dark pellets around your home, it’s a sign that you have a rodent problem.
Gnaw marks: Rodents need to chew on things to keep their teeth sharp, so if you see gnaw marks on wires, cables, or other objects around your home, it’s a sign that you have rodents.
Nests: Rodents will often build nests out of materials like paper, fabric, and insulation. If you find a nest in your home, it’s a sign that you have a rodent infestation.
Scurrying sounds: Rodents are active at night, so if you hear scurrying sounds coming from your walls or ceilings, it’s a sign that you have rodents.
Odors: Rodents have a distinct musky odor, so if you smell something musty or unpleasant in your home, it’s a sign that you have a rodent problem.
