Keeping Rodents Out of Your Home

Serving Illinois, Indiana and Missouri

Keeping Rats and Mice Out Of Your Home in Illinois Indiana Missouri and MichiganFrom its aging infrastructure and plentiful food supply to weather changes and animal feces, numerous factors make the Midwest an inviting place for rats and mice to call home. Although rats have fairly short life spans of a year or less, they reproduce rapidly and often. Between environmental factors and the rodents’ high fertility rates, it’s easy to see why these creepy critters are a little too abundant for comfort.

Household Dangers caused By Rats and Mice

Even worse, rats and mice pose a health threat to people and other animals. Mouse droppings and bodily fluids can spread a potentially deadly respiratory illness called hantavirus. And during wet weather, the family dog is susceptible to a rat-borne bacterial disease, as well as the many others they’re exposed to from the variety of pests roaming the Midwest.

Protect Your Home

You can make your own home less attractive to mice and rats. Rats can make their way into quarter-sized openings, while mice can squeeze into dime-sized holes. Seal up any gaps in your home’s walls and foundation to help keep rodents out. Clear any dog waste immediately, and store opened packages of food in sealed containers. If you see droppings or tooth marks on food containers after taking these precautions, call in the professionals.
