Bartlett Rodent Control
The city of Bartlett, Illinois is a small city of over 41,000 residents but for its size, it has quite a delicious selection of restaurants to satisfy any craving. TL’s Four Seasons Chinese is a huge favorite among residents as their sushi and shrimp fried rice are popular choices. D’licious Crepes and Roti is a mouth watering combination of French and Indian cuisine that blends sweet and savory flavors into dishes that have fans coming back week after week. Running short on time? Grab some hot dogs at the DogFather or a pizza at V & V’s Paesano Pizzeria. No matter your cravings or your refined palate tastes, Bartlett can delight it. Rodents aren’t that picky however and will consume nearly anything edible if they can get their paws or jaws on it.
How rodents get in your house
Rodents can squeeze into holes as small as ½ inch and if it isn’t big enough yet, it will chew it big enough so they can get inside. If they are desperate enough, they can chew through almost anything and in extreme cases, rats have been known to swim up through toilet pipes! Rats are amazing swimmers so a little water does not scare them. Once they are inside your home, they begin to sneakily forage for things to make a nest. Newspaper scraps, fabric, clothing or even cardboard are usual bedding choices for rodents. Rodents need to be close to a water source and are constantly seeking out food. Once rodents get into your kitchen, they contaminate every surface and morsel they touch since they urinate and defecate everywhere they go. The damage they cause and disease they spread is devastating.

Rodent prevention tips
Keeping rodents out of your home, especially as the weather gets colder, can be tricky but if you follow some of these prevention tips, you decrease your chances of dealing with this terrible pest.
- Seal all crevices, cracks and holes in the exterior of your home.
