    Facts About Mice and Rats

    Mice and rats are classified as rodents which is made up of over 2,000 different species. Being a warm blooded mammal like us, rodents are found all over the world and have been known carriers of disease, so if you suspect a rodent infestation in your home or business, call rodent control specialists (like Preferred Pest Control, right here in Orange County) to make a challenging pest problem disappear with ease.

    Rodents such as rats or mice have large front teeth adapted for chewing through walls, wires, and items within homes, causing copious amounts of damages. Outside, rodents are also a nuisance as they have proven to be destructive towards agriculture — feeding on grains and contaminating fields with their urine and feces, for example.

    Rodents and Diseases

    Dealing with wild rodent infestations without professional care is ill-advised as mice and rats can be carriers of dangerous disease, bacteria, viruses, and parasites. Rodents will bite when cornered so be very cautious if you happen to come upon one. Besides biting, mice and rats can transmit diseases through their urine and feces so be wary of that as well.

    If you come across a rodent in your home, call professional pest exterminators at Preferred Pest Control. We will identify and remove both rats and mice to prevent infestation. Infestation can occur quickly as these rodents do not hibernate and are known to be rabid breeders. For example, mice can make up to 56 babies a year, while rats can make up to 84!


    Preventative Measures to Stop Mice and Rat Infestation

    Mice and Rats have small bodies which can squeeze into some amazingly small cracks and holes, so the first step into preventing these rodents from entering your home is to seal all points of entry that you can find. Next, eliminate possible rodent food sources such as crumbs, open containers of dry food, fruits and vegetables, garbage, and even cardboard boxes. Keep your home clean and remember to store all food in sealed containers to prevent any contamination.

    Sometimes there is only so much you can do on your own and if full-blown rodent infestation is present, professional rodent extermination experts should be called.  Although mice and rats are very adaptable creatures that prove difficult to exterminate, Preferred Pest Control are rodent experts who specialize is this sort of thing.

    When you call Preferred Pest Control, we will come to your home or business and consult with you on the best course of action. Preferred Pest Control exterminators will come up with a customized plan and introduce methods of control that will deal with the current infestation and prevent any future rodent infestation that will cause damage to your home or business, both inside and out.
