Effective Rodent Removal in Beaverton
Rodents can do a number on a house. As gnawing animals, when they get into walls they can chew through electrical wiring and drywall. They also chew on flooring, furniture, and of course, anything in your pantry or kitchen cabinets. Rats and mice are the most common rodents to infest a home or business. When they do, Family Home Pest Control has proven methods for rodent removal in Beaverton and the surrounding area.
Important Rodent Control
Rats and mice are carriers of bacteria, parasites, viruses, pathogenic fungus, and disease. They are also a source of allergens for many people. Mice and rats often use air ducts to make their home. When they do, those health risks get spread throughout a house or office space. Harmful bacteria and allergens can also be kicked into the air when vacuuming, dusting, or moving furniture. The bacteria can lead to serious respiratory infections. Common allergens carried by mice in their fur and saliva can seriously exacerbate asthma and other breathing problems.
In addition to what can be transmitted through the air, rats and mice spoil food. They crawl across counter tops and tables, where food is served and prepared, and leave behind invisible health threats. Rodents carry salmonella, Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, Haverhill fever, and other pathogens. It is important to safeguard your home from these threats.
Our experienced exterminators know where rodents hide and how to identify their nests. We offer rodent extermination as well as prevention. Once rodents have been removed from your home, it’s important to keep them out by continued monitoring and maintenance treatments.
Identifying Mouse and Rat Infestations
The rodents we find most common in the Northwest include deer mice, house mice, roof rats, and Norway rats. Each of these animals will shrink from human notice. They are nocturnal and stay out of site. That is why proactive rat extermination and mice extermination is important; you may have a problem without being aware of it.
