Are You Struggling To Deal With Rodents In Your Frisco Home?

There are several rodent pests in Frisco. Rodents can come into your yard and damage your lawn. The rodents that do this are voles and gophers. Some rodents scamper around in your backyard and cause minor damage to screens and other building materials. Can you guess which rodents do this? They are chipmunks and squirrels. These rodents may also get into your home but they won't stay permanently. While it is certainly not good to have a rodent infestation, even for a short period, it is better than an ongoing infestation that keeps growing. The worst of all rodent pests are rats and mice. They get into Frisco homes, explore every level, and increase their numbers. As their population grows, health risk and the potential for property damage also grows. Let's look at signs of common rodents in Frisco, discuss the risks domestic rodents present, and the safest way to get rid of these different rodents. If you currently have a rodent problem and want immediate assistance, jump to our contact page for trusted rodent pest control in Frisco.

Health Risks That Rodent Infestations Pose

There are many ways rats and mice can impact your health without you knowing. We're not going to dwell on this point, but you should know the risks.

Rodents chew on wires and may cause a house fire. Experts estimate that 80 to 85 percent of property fires that spark from unknown sources are likely related to rat and mouse infestations.

Rodents run around in sewers and climb in dumpsters and trash cans. As they move about in urban areas, they may pick up harmful bacteria and parasitic worms. These invisible organisms can cause flu-like symptoms.

Rodents pick up ticks and fleas. As they move about in your home, they can leave these pests in your home. Ticks can potentially transmit diseases with life-long health implications, such as Lyme disease and meat allergy.

Rodents create holes in your exterior that can allow moisture to get in. A moisture problem can lead to a mold problem resulting in respiratory issues.

These are far from the only ways rats and mice may present risks to your health, but our goal isn't to get you thinking about all the ways these rodents can harm you. We want you to understand the secret dangers of having a rodent infestation. As the population of rodents increases inside your home, their ability to impact your health and/or damage your property increases with them.

The Safest Way To Get Rid Of Rodents In Frisco

When rats and mice become a problem, some turn to over-the-counter rodent control. These products can help to control rodents in Frisco. If they didn't, people wouldn't buy them. Unfortunately, they can not only fall short but can actually cause harm.

  • Certain repellents used to control rodents can harm humans. If you apply a harmful product in areas that humans or pets enter, sickness may result.
  • Bait products designed to exterminate rodents can harm children or pets exposed to these materials.
  • Springs traps or snap traps control rodents but can also harm the little fingers of children when placed in areas where children explore. 

When you apply rodent control, you can put your family at risk, no matter what products you use. Failing to control rodents can allow them to continue to secretly infest your home and do the harmful things listed above.

A rodent control professional uses tamper-resistant bait traps to make sure children, pets, and untargeted wildlife do not get exposed to the baits. Your technician will place traps on the interior of your home in areas where your kids and pets can't easily access them. If there is a concern for accidental exposure, your technician will take greater measures to put traps where they won't cause harm. 

Along with these safety measures, your technician will apply other products and methods to get control of rodents. Rats and mice are clever animals. It often takes a multi-pronged treatment strategy to remove them from structures and keep them out. Many products we use are all-natural solutions, such as sealing entry points with copper mesh, metal flashing, or caulking material to keep rodents out. We focus on controlling targeted pests with the least amount of control materials.

The best reason to get professional rodent control is that we perform necessary follow-up visits to monitor the success of your program and ensure no rodents remain inside your home. Our technicians have the training and experience to find the subtle signs of a rodent infestation. If you're in Frisco, connect with Adams Exterminating Company for rodent control.

  • I have a baby/toddler… is it safe to have treatment?
    While the products we use are toxic to insects, they pose almost no serious risk to people when used properly. However, it is always advisable to be careful when using chemicals around small children, including pesticides. If you have a small child, we recommend staying away from the treatment area while the service is being performed and then wait until the product has dried.
  • Do you offer plans or bundles?
    Yes, we offer three different plans designed to meet your needs and your budget. Our perimeter, Home Guardian, and Home Guardian Plus are all designed to bundle your pest control treatment into a package that fits your needs. If there isn’t a plan that works for you, don’t worry, we will customize one that fits your unique needs.
  • How long do I have to stay out of my home or property after treatment is performed?
    In situations where you have to be out of the property during and after treatment (flea treatment, roach clean-out service, or for health reasons, etc.), we recommend that you stay away until all products have completely dried. This is usually approximately two to four hours depending on conditions, after which time it is completely safe to re-enter the property.
  • What are the steps to take prior to receiving flea treatment?
    Please review our flea treatment information sheet found here.
