Rodents can be a big problem if they set up shop in your home or business. There are several reasons for this: They are chewers, doing damage to everything from the basic stick frame of your home to the wiring insulation. They also reproduce quickly, so once you get them, you are going to have to be very diligent to remove them again. Anything from mice, rats, squirrels, raccoons, and even birds can present a risk to health and home.
Paramount Pest Solutions provides a full exclusion service for our customers. This is followed by a removal program for any rodents that may remain in the structure. We also provide ongoing monthly maintenance to the outside of the structure to ensure that the rodents stay away from your home or business. This will all be assessed and determined at the time of the FREE inspection that is done at the property before the work is performed.
Rodents are disease carriers. They are known to spread Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Hemorraghic Fever, Lassa Fever, Leptospirosis, Salmonellosis, Tularemia, and many other diseases. Although not all of these are specific to our area, this indicates the seriousness of containing these animals.
Although house mice are common in homes and offices, winter brings field mice indoors as well, seeking warmth, shelter, and food. Once they chew their way in, they begin reproducing at an alarming rate. Six adult mice will turn to a family of 60 within three months and they breed year-round, producing up to a dozen litters per year of 5-6 babies who then have babies a month later.
If these furry critters can find food, they aren’t leaving willingly. Even a lack of water isn’t an issue for a rodent, as they can derive all the moisture they need from food.
The first step to controlling rodent populations is to stop them from entering. Rats and mice can compress their bodies in unbelievable ways, and can squeeze through the tiniest of holes. Paramount Pest Solutions offers a powerful exclusion service for our customers. We follow it up with a removal program for rodents that may still be inside.
There are several methods which may be used independently or in conjunction with each other. Live traps, spring traps, and glue traps are the most common forms of eradication. Each has benefits and downfalls.
Rodents are naturally skittish and wary of anything new in their little world. Did you know that mice only roam about 40 feet from their nests over their lifetime?
Staying on top of these pests is a time-consuming task. If you would like help, give us a call and let us show you our rodent control program. We inspect, secure, and eliminate. We dispose of the evidence and keep them from coming back. We will intensify efforts until the problem is controlled, and then check back to make sure we keep them out.
