Rodents

If you live in the Pompano Beach area, chances are pretty high that you’ll have some type of rodent problem at some point. Typically, once rodents have taken up residence in your home, they will look to nest and create a big family. You want to get rid of them before this happens.

Mice and Rats in Pompano Beach, FL

Although you may not suspect it, rodents can actually pose a health risk to your family. Mice and rats have been documented to carry:

  • Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Tularemia

Clearly, not all rodents will carry diseases. However, rodents can still be a nuisance around your home because they chew on everything. Rodents will try to raid your food, and may contaminate it in the process. They will chew through practically anything when trying to get to food. In fact, they will even chew through a wall if they think there is food on the other side.

Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our Pompano Beach rodent control specialists can perform for you.

Below is a list of the common areas to find these holes and gaps inside your home. Remember that mice are not restricted to low areas as they are expert climbers. The common areas are:

  • Lower corners of your attic
  • Around doors
  • Around your water pipes
  • Around the fireplace
  • Inside the attic
  • Under kitchen cabinets

We have found that steal wool is one of the most effective materials for closing these gaps. For large holes, we find that metal sheeting, lath metal or hardware cloth is the most effective. Flashing near the base of your home is another alternative that’s available. If this all sounds like too much work for you, don’t fear. Not only can our Pompano Beach rodent control professionals get rid of your existing rodent problem, but they can prevent future mice and rats from being able to enter your home.
