Regardless of where you live, whether it’s in Pompano Beach or another city in Florida, you’re likely going to have a rodent issue at some point. Typically, once rats or mice 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.
Rodents Carry Diseases
Although you may not suspect it, rodents can pose a health risk to your family. Mice and rats have been known to carry diseases and cause serious health problems to people exposed, including:
- Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
- Lassa Fever
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
- Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
Not all rodents will be disease carriers. However, they can still be a nuisance around your home because they chew on everything. They 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. They will even chew through a wall if they think there is food on the other side.

How Do They Enter Your Home?
Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. 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 any rodent control measures must 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 steel 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 available alternative. If this all sounds like too much work for you, don’t fear. Not only can our pest control professionals get rid of your existing rodent problem, but they can help to prevent future mice and rats from being able to enter your home.
