It can be an alarming and troublesome discovery to find that there are rodents present in your home’s crawl space or attic. Foul and unwelcome, these vile invaders are granted access to your home through weak spots in the house’s structure. This can include any cracks or holes in the walls, gaping openings in windows or vents, or an unsealed drain. Rodents prefer quiet, dark spaces that are largely undisturbed by humans, making your attic or crawl space an ideal piece of rodent real estate.
Rodents are capable of reproducing very quickly, like rabbits. One female alone can give birth to 10 litters of baby rodents each year. The amount of rodents in each litter can vary, but each will be mature and ready to produce offspring of their own within months. Unfortunately, this means that rodent infestations can quickly get out of hand, with a mere two rats multiplying into at least 30 within a couple months. Rodent infestations must be handled deliberately and immediately upon identification.

When Should I Contact a Tacoma Pest Control Company?
If the pest invasion is limited to only a couple of rodents, you may experience success from a DIY rodent removal method. Poisons and traps, available at most home improvement stores, may prove a viable method to eliminate the rodents. However, these products and not designed to handle a widespread infestation; these may be signs that you will need the support of a rodent removal company:
- Multiple rodent nests have been identified in your home.
- The rodent infestations are a recurring trouble, occurring every few months.
- The problem is still present, even after multiple rodents have been trapped.
If the situation has escalated and become unable to handle using DIY methods, a rodent removal company will be ready to aid you in identifying the removing the source of the infestation, thus preventing the issue from recurring in the future.
Why is the Help of a Rodent Removal Company So Necessary?
Rodents are messy business, that much is clear. There’s a wealth of strong rationale to support using a rodent removal company for your problem. Because licensed rodent removal companies have well-trained, expert teams, they can solve the problem for good. Their teams are able to quickly pinpoint the species of invading rodent, provide counsel on the optimal technique to remove them, and perform any required repairs to your home to guarantee the rodents are gone for good.
Considered to be the sole cause of the bubonic plague (or Black Death), rats are responsible for one of the largest documented health crises in human history. Do not take their health risk lightly.
More often than not, these large rats bear multiple infectious diseases as well as other insects such as fleas or ticks which can cause additional infestations. Furthermore, their bodily waste is capable of contaminating any food or water that they may come in contact with.
If you are not able to eliminate them in a timely manner, the rats may cause widespread damage to your home’s structure. Rats have a lot of fun nesting in a building’s structure, with plenty of things to sink their little teeth into. In doing so, they can cause serious damage to the structure of the building: air ducts, furniture, insulation, beams, wires, floorboards, and other components can be damaged by their incessant gnawing.
Rats are experts at avoiding detection by humans; they prefer to be out of sight. This means that if you see one out in the open, you’ve probably got a large-scale rodent invasion on your hands. Because of their health hazards and their destructive habits of living, we highly advise you to contact a rodent removal company in Tacoma promptly upon noticing the invasion.
Slightly smaller in size than their rat brothers, mice also are masters of avoiding detection. It is likely that you will only notice their presence through odors, small tracks, chewed up furniture, and any little “presents” that may be left scattered around your home.
Just like rats, mice also are capable of damaging wiring or insulation in your home. Because of their rapid rate of reproduction, you must deal with the situation before it gets out of hand.
A mouse infestation can be hard to identify. Scratching on the ceilings, floors, and walls isn’t always attributed to rodents. Not only will a professional Tacoma rodent removal company be able to help you identify the rodents at hand, but they will be able to present the best technique for eradicating them permanently.
