Tamiami Rodent Removal - Mice & RatsEven if a rodent doesn’t carry a disease, they’re still not something you want crawling around in your home. It is not uncommon to find chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are involved. They will chew through practically anything when trying to get to food. In fact, they will even chew through a wall if they think there is food on the other side.

Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any rodent removal measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our Tamiami rodent control specialists can perform for you.

Below is a list of the common areas to find these holes and gaps inside your home. Remember that mice are not restricted to low areas as they are expert climbers. The common areas are:

  • Lower corners of your attic
  • Around doors
  • Around your water pipes
  • Around the fireplace
  • Inside the attic
  • Under kitchen cabinets

We have found that steal wool is one of the most effective materials for closing these gaps. For large holes, we find that metal sheeting, lath metal or hardware cloth is the most effective. Flashing near the base of your home is another alternative that’s available. If this all sounds like too much work for you, don’t fear. We’d be happy to send out our Tamiami rodent removal experts to not only rid your home of existing rodents, but to secure it from future invasions as well.
