Don’t Let Rodents Destroy Your Stafford Home
Rodent infestations are one of the most common pest problems homeowners deal with, and they’re also one of the most dangerous infestations to get. Rodents may be small, but when it comes to their destructive prowess, they are giants. Anywhere rodents spend time in your house will be destroyed. They will damage floors with urine and fecal matter; damage insulation and your belongings as they search for nesting materials; and damage pipes and wires with their constant need to chew.
The problems they cause don’t stop with the damage they do. Rodents are also extremely dangerous to your health. They can pick up pathogens on their bodies that they then transfer to the surfaces they cross, they leave waste wherever they go, and they often have parasites on them that then move into your home.
Avoiding a rodent infestation is the best course of action to prevent all of the problems they cause, but doing so can be more difficult than you’d expect. Rodents are able to enter homes through the tiniest of holes, so rodents are often able to get into homes that Stafford homeowners thought were secure. If you’ve seen or heard signs of an infestation, it’s best to have it taken care of quickly. The sooner you get rid of a rodent infestation, the less damage they can cause and the less likely your family is to get sick. Viewpoint Pest Management Solutions offers effective rodent control services to protect your Stafford home from mice and rats.
Our Stafford, VA Rodent Control Service
Your rodent control service begins with an inspection of your home and property. During our inspection, we will look for any signs of rodent activity, including droppings, gnaw marks, and trails, as well as any openings greater than a quarter of an inch in size. Areas we inspect include the kitchen, garage, basement, and more.
Once we know how rodents are getting into your Stafford home and where they are spending their time, we’ll set out bait stations in strategic locations. Inside, we’ll only use soft baits and make sure to place them in areas inaccessible to children and pets.
We’ll also seal any entry points we found during the inspection. We can seal up all openings that are less than two inches in diameter and at ground level. This step is essential in eliminating your rodent infestation. If you don’t have entry points sealed, rodents can still gain access to your house from outside. By sealing the entry points, we stop rodents from getting inside.
