When to Call a Rodent Exterminator

Seeing a rat or mouse in your backyard is a normal sight. So how do you know when you need professional rodent extermination? As soon as you notice a rodent inside your home, it’s time to call an exterminator. Rats and mice can cause damage, spread filth, and carry dangerous diseases. Additionally, they are great hiders and can be difficult to locate inside your property, especially when they’re in the attic or walls. The experts at Ja-Roy know how to get rid of your rat or mouse problem and keep them from returning.

What are the signs of rodents?

If you notice any of these common signs of a rodent infestation, it’s time to call for help:

Do you need a rodent exterminator?

When it comes to getting rid of rodents, DIY or all-natural methods simply won’t cut it. Even though at-home remedies may work for a few days or as preventative measures, they are not a long-term solution. There are two main reasons why you should always use an experienced rat exterminator:

  1. Rodents can transmit illnesses. When rodents get into your cabinets, they can contaminate your food by leaving behind urine and feces. In addition to being gross, rodents carry diseases and pathogens! It’s also possible for people in your family to have allergic reactions such as hives or asthma attacks.
  2. Rodents may cause structural damage. Rats’ incisors never stop growing, so they are driven to continually gnaw on things just like a teething baby. A rodent can chew through just about anything, including some kinds of metal, most kinds of wood, and even wires, which can potentially create a fire hazard.
