Elgin Rodent Control
The motto of Elgin, Illinois is “The City in the Suburbs” and due to the suburban nature, families are the focus. One family fun activity during the summer months are Concerts in the Park. A rich variety of music is performed as residents cozy up on blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy summertime entertainment while munching on popcorn and snacks. After a grand evening out, the last thing you want to see when you get home is a filthy rat family munching on YOUR goodies in the kitchen.
Danger of rodent infestation
Not only is it disgusting to share your munchies with 4 legged critters, but it’s also dangerous. Rodents carry disease and bacteria that can greatly harm you and your family. For instance, the deer mouse is the most common carrier of the hantavirus, which is spread through the animal’s feces. Another disease also spread through rat feces is salmonellosis. These are illnesses you don’t want to mess around with. “If you ain’t got your health, you ain’t got nothin’” is a popular phrase that anyone who has been sick agrees with 100%. Invest in your health and keep your home vermin free by our Pointe Pest Control professionals.

Prevent the destruction
Not only do rodents carry deadly diseases, but that damage they do can make a hefty dent in your pocketbook. Their over sized teeth can chew through wood, sheet rock, plastic storage bins, boxes, insulation and anything else in their way just to create a hole big enough to get into your home. But really how much damage can they cause? They can chew through electrical wires causing fires, shred up your insulation to make nests, or have the nerve to die in your heat ducts producing an incredible stench.
What to do?
At the very first sighting of a rodent, call a professional immediately. This is not a job you should tackle on your own.
