As winter settles in, all the little critters who scurry around our homes and yards at night, tend to go looking for a warm, dry place to nest until spring arrives again. Their favorite place to make themselves at home is the place we call home. Rodents can quickly become an overwhelming problem when they see our closets, floors, and cupboards as safe places to build their personal space. So what do you do when they try to take over?
- Start Right-Only start what you know you can finish. When it comes to dealing with rodents, you want to hire a professional exterminator. Dealing with rodents yourself can become an overwhelming and expensive process if you don’t know how to handle each particular creature. Many homeowners who start the DIY removal process aren’t able to finish, and end up hiring a professional anyways.
- Major Differences-Rodents, all of which quickly become pests, are each unique in the way they nest and spread. Mice and rats are different from squirrels, possums, and raccoons. Dealing with each of these types of rodents takes a different approach and will need some professional help to extricate them from your home.
- Health and Wellness-Rodents harbor many diseases like rat bite fever and Hantavirus. Attempting to remove them on your own can pose a significant risk to the health of you and your family. Hiring a professional who knows how to handle disease-ridden rodents is the best option to keep you and your family safe.
