Is there a Rodent Season?

Is there a rodent season

No one wants to share their home with rodents, as these pesky creatures tend to hide in the dark spaces of a house and wreak havoc on electrical systems. Having rodents in your home can also cause serious health problems, so if you start to see signs of rats or mice in your house, you need to contact Waterloo rodent control quickly. Truly Nolen Canada offers this service and helps keep unwanted guests out of your home.

Signs You Have a Rodent Infestation

When the weather is cold, rats and mice look for a warm place to call home. Unfortunately, houses often make ideal shelters if rodents can find a way inside. Mice and rats often stay hidden within walls or other dark spaces in your house, so you may not know you have unwanted guests until you are dealing with a full-blown infestation. When that happens, you may hear rustling noises inside your walls, see droppings, or find bite marks on food containers. The faster you take action, the quicker you can rid your home of pesky creatures.

Problems Caused by Rodents

Just because you don’t often see rodents in your home doesn’t mean they aren’t causing problems. One of the largest concerns that comes with having rats and mice in your home is the potential for disease. Not all rodents carry transmittable diseases, but many do, and these diseases are easily spread through the air when the rodents leave droppings in the house. Mice and rat droppings break apart easily and release microscopic disease particles into your home. The creatures are also known to bite and can leave marks and cause diseases in kids and pets that threaten the rodents. Rodents may even chew a hole through your wall or gnaw through important electrical wires and could cause a fire in your home.

Steps We Take for Removing Rodents From Your Home

At Truly Nolen Canada, we understand that no two rodent infestations and home layouts are the same, so we customize our plan of attack to make sure it meets your individual needs. However, because we want the problem to be taken care of thoroughly, you can expect our technicians to perform the following three steps to rid your home of rodents.

  • Exclusion: You may not even notice cracks and crevices in your home that are as small as a dime or quarter, but these tiny entry points give rodents access to your home. To make sure the vermin don’t return to take up residence again once we have gotten rid of them, we scour your house and patch up any potential points of entry.
  • Population reduction: Getting rid of the rodents in your home can be a lengthy process. At Truly Nolen Canada, we don’t use rat poisons that could be harmful to your health; we rely on high-quality traps to catch the rodents so we can properly dispose of them. It could take us several weeks to catch all of the mice or rats in your home, depending upon the size of the population.
  • Sanitation: Once we remove the rodents, cleaning your home thoroughly is essential. We sanitize your home with state-of-the-art chemicals and check to make sure our strategies continue to work throughout the year.

Whether you are sharing your home with one rodent or several, you want to get rid of the pests quickly and deter them from returning. The expert technicians at Truly Nolen Canada in Waterloo are here to provide you with quick rodent mitigation so you can take back control of our home.
