San Antonio Rodent Extermination
The Norway rat and the common house mouse are examples of rodents that are found in San Antonio. Although they usually reside outside, rodents may attempt to enter your home in search of food and water. This is especially common in periods of hot, dry weather or during the winter months. These destructive creatures carry a number of diseases, including typhus and plague, and they can spread disease through their bites, droppings and urine. Additionally, they often harbor parasites like fleas, which can also spread disease.
Where do Rodents enter?
Rodents are able to enter your home through small cracks and holes. They often chew through drywall and electrical wires, causing thousands of dollars in damage. After breaking into your home, the pests often build nests in dark attics, basements and crawl spaces and come out at night to hunt for food. If you find small holes in the walls, damage to your food supply or small droppings around your home, you probably have a rodent infestation.
Keeping Rats & Mice out
You can make your San Antonio home less attractive to rodents by sealing cracks, keeping your home free from excess clutter and keeping your food in sealed containers. However, rodents are resourceful creatures, and once they gain access to your home, it can be extremely difficult to get rid of them.
