South Florida Rodent Control
Rats and mice in the house can damage your property and spread disease, and if you are in a place where you are worried about this serious issue, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind.
First, it is incredibly easy for rodents to get in your home. A rat or a mouse only needs to be able to fits its head into a crack; if the head fits, the rest of the body will as well! No matter how new your home is or how well sealed, there are usually dozens of ways for a rat or a mouse to enter. Before any treatment can be started the property must be properly rat-proofed.

Another thing to keep in mind is the damage that a rodent can do. They are gnawing mammals, and because of that, they can seriously damage materials in your home. They will also chew on furniture, and because they need fiber for their nests, they’ll destroy your fabric items as well.
On top of that, rodents carry all sorts of harmful bacteria and parasites, and because of this, they can dramatically contaminate your cooking area. This is something that can seriously affect the safety of your food.
Even worse, once they become established in your home, they are hard to get out. Even trapping and releasing them won’t do much because they can come back! Poisons are risky for laymen to use, and rodents are quick learners who can avoid many traps.
