How Can I Tell If I Have A Rodent Problem?

Common rodents invading Papillion homes are Norway rats, roof rats, house mice, and field mice. If these warm-blooded, furry creatures are inside your house, you will see these rodent infestation signs:

  • Droppings
  • Gnaw marks
  • Grease stains
  • Urine stains
  • Tracks
  • Odor
  • Holes
  • Rodents

Since rodents are creatures of habit that create pathways between their nests and food and water sources, you will find these signs strewn along those trails. The defining characteristic of rodents is a pair of incisor teeth they keep trim and sharp by chewing on nearby objects. As a result, they damage furniture, walls, floors, and other objects along the trails they create in a home. Furthermore, when a rodent infestation is dense and confined, you will detect odor from their urine. 

ProServ Pest Management service technicians know the indications of a rodent invasion in a home. 


Can Rodents In My Home Be Dangerous?

Yes, it is dangerous to have rodents in your Papillion home. These animals forage in areas containing disease-causing organisms, fleas, and ticks. They spread pathogens from the rotting foods from these polluted areas through their feces, urine, and saliva and when they rub against items in a house. Furthermore, the parasitic insects and arachnids that hitchhike on their bodies from these unsanitary locations can spread disease to household members and pets. 

If you are searching for "the best rodent control near me," look no further than ProServ Pest Management. We will protect your family and pets from diseases spread by rodents when they invade a home. 


What's The Best Way To Prevent Rodent Problems In The Future?

Once ProServ Pest Management removes rodents from your home, implement these rodent prevention tips to keep them away for good:

  • Prune shrubs and tree branches away from the house
  • Seal foundation cracks larger than 1/4-inch
  • Replace loose mortar and weather stripping around doors and windows
  • Remove clutter from the yard, attic, garage, and basement
  • Keep outdoor and indoor garbage containers closed
  • Store food in airtight plastic or glass containers

When a ProServ Pest Management technician inspects your Papillion home to determine the scope and type of rodent, we can provide more specific suggestions. 

How Do I Stop Rodents For Good?
