San Antonio Rodent Control
Keep Your Home & Family Safe with Rodent Control
Rodents are common, but seeing them in your home should not be. Not only do rodents such as rats, mice, and squirrels cause damage, they can also carry disease and make your family ill.
Rodents enter your home in a variety of ways and they eat food, chew wires, and multiply. If cornered, they will bite to defend themselves which can spread an infection. If you see a rodent in your home, keep children and pets away from it and call a qualified San Antonio pest control company right away.
Rodents in your home can cause a lot of damage, including:
- Chewing through wires, which can cause short, electrical issues, and fires
- Bringing fleas and ticks into your home
- Contaminating food through touch and feces
- Causing foul odors throughout the house
- Biting pets, children, or unwary adults
Mice and rats come into your home seeking warmth, shelter from the weather, and ready access to food. A single mouse can birth 32-56 pups per year, and a rat can birth 32-84 babies per year. A small number of vermin can become an infestation in a short time. Contact our San Antonio pest control technicians right away if you suspect you have rodents.
Rodents don’t have the right to destroy your home and endanger your family. To get rid of these pests for good, contact Air Care Air Conditioning today!
Keeping Rodents Out of Your Home
Preventing an infestation is much easier and less costly than treating one. Think about your house from a rodent’s perspective and seal all holes that enter your home. The bodies of mice and rats can adjust to squeeze through spaces that seem much too small. Don’t overlook any opening.
Carefully store all dry food and garbage because these are common starting points for infestation. Store all food properly and don’t leave waste on the floor or on kitchen counters. Also dispose of cardboard quickly, as rodents use it as nesting material.
The best way to keep rodents out is to take precautions and have your home inspected for pests every year. Catching an infestation when it’s small makes it much easier to fix. There’s also less time for damage to occur.
