Proper exclusion is a necessary task if you have recurrent rodent problems. Without a proper exclusion, rodents can cause severe damage to your home. It is critical to consult a professional pest control service to do a proper exclusion, because doing it yourself is not an option. At Payne Pest Management, our Los Angeles-, San Diego-, and Irvine-based pest control experts can run a proper exclusion if you have a rodent problem. Here are a few reasons why a proper exclusion is necessary.
Rodents Cause Structural and Property Damage
Rodents and mice can cause structural damage to your home or commercial property. Rodents destroy insulation, wiring, and plumbing, all of which are costly both to your peace of mind and your wallet. Rats are capable of running along wires, fences, vines, and shrubs to gain entry to a building and wreak havoc. They can jump high and navigate small entries with ease. Avoid this by seeking a professional pest control expert and seeking a proper exclusion.
Rodents Will Eat and Damage Your Food
Rodents invade homes and commercial properties in search of food. Scraps of food can be found in drains, food preparation equipment, and anywhere food traces are left behind. To prevent this, be sure to practice good sanitation. Be sure to tightly seal and properly store food, and clean up if you make a spill. Without these precautions, rodents may enjoy a buffet at your expense.
Rodents Will Reproduce and Multiply
Mice breed year-round, and they have staggering birth rates. These birth rates skyrocket if they are not controlled naturally. Rodents often times will target your attic as a place to call home and reproduce. Attics have water, food, and lodging, and they are away from the dangers of the outside world. Avoid damage to wires, insulation, and your peace of mind by speaking with a pest control expert. A professional can run a proper exclusion to prevent rats from using your home as a breeding ground.
