Rodents, mainly mice and rats, are a fairly common problem in Carmel. Once rodents are in your home they’re going to look to expand their family and build a large nest. We typically advise you to let a professional Carmel rodent control technician inspect and advise on the best way to eliminate them before they have time to multiply.
Mice and Rats in Carmel, Indiana
If you notice a rat or mouse it’s important to take immediate action. Not just because they can cause damage to your property and valuables, but because they also pose a health risk to those exposed. Such diseases that rats and mice may be carrying when invading your property include:
- Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
- Lassa Fever
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
- Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
Not all rats and mice will be carrying a disease but even having said that, you likely still prefer them to be gone. They will search out and locate your food, destroying and contaminating your food items and packaging. If they believe there is food waiting for them on the other side of say, a wall, for example, they will chew through the wall just to get to the food.
Unfortunately, they don’t require a lot of space to get inside your property and can easily destroy other things within the property for that very same reason.
That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our Carmel rodent control specialists can perform for you.
Below is a list of the common areas to find these holes and gaps inside your home. While mice and rats are typically discovered on the ground-level, they can easily climb up anything to get to their destination. The common areas they are discovered in include:
- Lower corners of your attic
- Around doors
- Around your water pipes
- Around the fireplace
- Inside the attic
- Under kitchen cabinets
