The Problems Rodents Can Bring To Your Home
Rodents are some of the worst pests to wind up inside your home. They are disease-spreading, parasite-infested whirlwinds of destruction. The biggest threat rodents pose is to your health. Rats and mice, specifically, can spread dozens of different diseases, including nasty bugs like salmonellosis, leptospirosis, hantavirus, and rat-bite fever. These are serious illnesses that can negatively impact your health, potentially even permanently.
Rats and mice might be the main culprits in the spread of disease, but every rodent species endemic to our area can infest your home with external parasites like fleas and ticks (which, incidentally, carry a plethora of their own diseases). Not to mention the massive amounts of property damage rodents can do with their constant chewing.
Exclusion is one of the best ways to keep these problematic pests away. Unlike poisons that kill existing infestations, exclusion can keep rodents – especially the ones that can make you sick – out in the first place. The problem with exclusion work is it's easy to do it wrong. Colorado rodents are clever and can chew through some pretty tough materials, so it's vital to know what you're doing when you exclude them.
Our Colorado Springs Rodent Exclusion Service
Here at High Country Pest Control, we are familiar with all the rodents that call the Colorado Springs area home, which is important because knowing rodent behaviors and capabilities, such as how well they can climb and what they can chew through, can make or break the long-term success of rodent exclusion work.
The best time to do rodent exclusion work is before you wind up with a rodent infestation. If you make it a huge hassle for rodents to get into your house, it makes your home much less attractive to them. However, rodents can squeeze into some pretty tight spots, which makes excluding them a seemingly impossible task.
Keeping rodents out of your Colorado Springs home depends a lot on making sure they physically cannot enter, but improper exclusion work is ineffective to wily rodents, so it's vital to ensure your rodent control is done right the first time. That's where we come in. Our trained and experienced technicians know where rodents love to enter and exit. Unlike most home or business owners, who have untrained eyes, we can find every avenue through which rodents gain access. We also have the tools and techniques to seal these avenues in ways that rodents cannot outfox.
The first thing we'll do when we come out to your home or business is to make sure you don't have an active rodent problem. If you do, we'll need to get rid of the rodents infesting your property before we start the exclusion process. Don't worry. We have a top-notch rodent control process which may include the following:
- Bait boxes
Best of all, our state-of-the-art treatments are eco-friendly and totally safe for you, your pets, and your family.
After getting rid of your rodent problem, we'll begin our exclusion process to ensure rodents cannot get back inside. We focus on the areas they are most likely to enter. These areas include:
- Crawl spaces
Our exclusion work has proven effective at keeping rodents at bay, and our eco-friendly and safe methods mean you can stay inside while we work. No hotels, no hassle.
Best of all, we are dedicated to customer satisfaction, which is why we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee. We have been locally owned and operated since 1987, so our customers are more than just faceless clients. They are our neighbors. That means we care about our local reputation and are motivated to ensure our friends and neighbors know who they can depend on for years to come.
