A guide  To Complete And Effective Rodent Control In North Texas 

There is no better feeling than when you have everything under control. When a project at work is well-managed, there is a sense of accomplishment and peace as you move through the various phases of completion. If you have worked under a supervisor who mapped out the objectives, you enjoy the process because you knew they had everything under control. On the other hand, when things are out-of-control, you have the opposite feelings. When you can't make deadlines, or the project appears to be in a death spiral, there is no sense of peace; instead, anxiety rules your heart. 

No one likes it when life seems to be out of control, and the same is true when it comes to rodents. When you believe rodents are in your house, you have anxiety and stress because you don't know how to stop them from infesting your home. The first step to gaining control over a rodent problem is to use the North Texas pest control team from Adams Exterminating Company. 

Since 1947 Adams Exterminating Company has removed rodents from homes throughout the North Texas area. We have the experience, knowledge, and tools to take control of your home away from rodents and give it back to you. Education is part of regaining control in a situation, so please keep reading to learn more about rodents so you can wrestle control of your house away from them.

The Damage And Dangers Rodents Can Create In Your Home

Because of their need to gnaw constantly, Texas rodents damage furniture, walls, floors, aluminum siding, and plastic and glass items in your house. Rodents chew through plastic food containers and paper-bound food products to access the contents. Rats often create two to three-inch diameter holes in walls and floors to enable a straight pathway from a food source to their nest. 

Although damage to various items is frustrating, a problem of concern is the propensity of rodents in walls to chew through wiring. When one reads of a house fire with "no known cause," chances are that a rodent sparked the fire. Rodents can short-circuit appliances, destroy electronics, disrupt internet and power service in the house, and cause fires.

Rodents not only cause physical damage to homes but also threaten the health and safety of the occupants. Rodents have oily fur that attracts dirt and disease-causing pathogens. As most people know, rodents forage in sewers, rotting garbage, compost piles, animal feces, and other unsanitary locations. Their fur attracts bacteria and viruses as they eat the organic material in these polluted areas. Rats and mice do not have good eyesight, and since they are active at night, they bump against objects and leave grease marks that contaminate surfaces. Pathogens on their fur also transfer to humans when people handle dead rodents without proper protection.

Why Traps Won't Get Rid Of The Entire Rodent Infestation

When someone sees a rat dart from beneath a table or hears rodents scratching inside walls, the instinct is to purchase traps and set them throughout the house. The sound of a trap snapping shut and promoting a rodent to the afterlife gives one a sense that the rodent problem will soon be under control. However, stopping a rodent infestation is seldom easy because rodents reproduce quickly. 

One female house mouse can produce a liter of six babies (pups) every three weeks totaling 35 pups annually. That's just one mouse! Can you imagine how quickly a mouse population can grow when several female mice reproduce? A female Norway rat begins to breed only four months after birth and produces 14 to 28 litters averaging eight pups each over its lifetime. A female roof rat does not live as long as a Norway rat but will produce around 40 babies during its one-year lifespan.

Another shortfall in attempting to stop a rodent infestation with traps is that they do not get to the root of the problem. Something is attracting rodents to your house, and they are finding entry points into your home. Although traps will not stop a rodent infestation, you can implement these steps to reduce the population and attractants to your house:

  • Vacuum the house regularly
  • Suction crumbs in corners and near baseboards
  • Seal food products in glass or thick plastic containers
  • Keep indoor and outdoor garbage cans closed

When you contact Adams Exterminating Company for rodent pest control, our service technicians will identify attractants in your yard and house; and point out access points to the interior of your home.
