Living in a home plagued with rodents can be a nightmare. When mice and rats roam freely in your house, you may be afraid to open the cupboards or walk barefoot in your home for fear of coming into contact with one of these pests. Even the best kept home, however, can easily become overrun with rodents if homeowners fail to take the necessary steps to eliminate and prevent this pest control problem. If you want a rodent-free home, you can benefit by knowing how these creatures enter your residence and what steps you can take to get rid of them permanently.
The Dangers of Rodents
Mice and rats commonly come into a house by borrowing through walls or even entering through the sewer system that is connected to the home. They also can take up residence by entering through your open garage doors or by climbing into the rafters of your roof or hitching a ride in your car that you regularly park in your shed or garage. Once they are in your home, rodents often repopulate rapidly and bring with them diseases that could put your family at risk. Deer mice, for example, sometimes carry the Hantavirus pulmonary disorder, a respiratory infection that could sicken those in your household who have weakened immune systems or breathing problems like asthma and allergies. If you have rodents you can be sure they are trying to get into your food.
