Let’s Talk Rodents

Cartoons Lied

If you have ever watched a cartoon, you have been led to believe that furry little mice are your friends. Squirrels are depicted as talkative happy critters. Voles are shown to be blind, but nice. Even rats have been portrayed as kind hearted. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are living with an infestation of rodents you already understand that they are terrible and nasty house guests.

When a rodent finds your food, they urinate and defecate on it. They are marking it as their own. This disgusting behavior spoils all of the food. For instance, if you have 7 gallon bucket of oatmeal and rodents get inside, it has been contaminated. You will be throwing out all the oatmeal in the bucket. Simply put, if given the chance, rodents will ruin your home. Don’t give them that chance.

If you see a rodent in your home or yard, it is time to call in the professionals with Pointe Pest Control.

The Problem

Rats will attack if they feel threatened and your house cat will run for the hills if confronted by a full grown sewer rat. Rats are mean. Even our professional pest control technicians experience a jump scare when a rat strikes.

If you have a rodent infestation in your home, you don’t have to live with it. You can try to tackle the problem by yourself, or you can make it easy by calling the professionals with Pointe Pest Control. Do-it-yourself pest control is not always the best option. If you have a few rodents, you will find it works great. But if you have a serious infestation, it will be much more than you can handle. When it comes to rodents and rodent infestations, we are the experts.

At Pointe Pest Control, we know what to do to get your home or office pest free. We can help you win the war against rodents.

The Damage

Damage and rodents go hand in hand. If you get a few voles or gophers in your yard, it won’t take them very long to make your yard look like craters on the moon. Rodents have open rooted teeth, which mean they grow constantly throughout their lives. Rat teeth can grow as much as 5 inches each year and since their teeth continuously grow, they have to chew things in order to wear them down. That means when you get an infestation of rodents in your home, they are going to chew on everything.

Rats and mice will gnaw through wood, walls, electrical wires, and furniture. Cardboard is one of their favorite things to chew on, because they use it for nesting material. You might also notice that some of your socks going missing. Rodents love soft nesting material for their younglings and will steal your clothes and tear up your furniture to get it.

Rodents can also completely ruin the insulation in your attic. In the winter, the insulation keeps heated air inside and if your attic is missing that insulation, your heating and electrical bills will increase as your furnace will have to work much harder to keep your house warm. The same occurs with your air conditioner in the summer.

Rodent infestations also increase the risk for a catastrophic house fire. When rodents bite through an electrical wire, a gap is created and if electricity arcs across the gap, it can ignite nearby materials. Several house fires have been linked back to rodent infestations.

Overall, an infestation of rodents will cost you quite a bit financially in food, heating, cooling and home repairs. Rodents are definitely not your friends.

The Diseases

If you think that home damages are the only things that rodents do, guess again. Rodents can also ruin your health. Rats spend time wandering around sewers and garbage; they then crawl around your kitchen table eating scraps.

It has been estimated that there are over a million viruses, bacteria and pathogens on a rat’s foot. Rats spread intestinal tape worms as well as lung and liver flukes. During the dark ages, rats were responsible for spreading Bubonic Plague through fleas. Bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death, killed more than 100 million people in Europe. Entire cities were wiped out and it is estimated that the Black Death killed off anywhere from 30 to 60 percent of the Europe’s entire population at the time.

If you think that bubonic plague has been wiped out, think again. Scientists have found it in populations of ground squirrels and of course rats, and, unfortunately, cases have been reported in recent years in both California and Arizona. If left untreated the disease is fatal.

Mice also spread some nasty illnesses. One of the worst is Hantavirus. Hantavirus is spread through the feces and urine of mice. When you decide to sweep or vacuum up messes made by a mouse, Hantavirus can become airborne and if you breathe it in, you can contract the disease. Hantavirus causes your lungs to slowly fill up with fluid, and 38% of those infected end up dying from the disease.

Along with the above are a lot of other terrifying diseases spread by rodents. According to the Center for Disease Control there are more than 35 illnesses spread by rodents that can be hazardous to your health. Sharing your home with rodents is not an option because they will ruin your home and your health.

Understanding the Seasons

Weather has a profound effect on pest life cycle. Most pests, rodents and insects breed aggressively during spring and go through periods of hibernation during autumn and winter.

When the weather slowly begins to heat up, pests start to get more active after having stayed dormant over the colder winter months.

  • Birds often start to find mates and start building their nests.
  • Moths which consumer leaves usually become active again.
  • Flies often emerge from their winter hibernation places and start to breed and spread out.
  • Squirrels also spend the winter in hibernation. When spring approaches these creatures start looking for a new home. This is usually the time when they make their way into lofts and other spaces.

Summer is arguably the best season for pests. It is the time when they are in full swing and breed as rapidly as they can. Wasps are one of the most common summer pests followed by flies and rodents. Many a summer picnics and BBQs have been ruined by the ‘home invasion’ of these pests.

  • Wasps build their nesting grounds and lay their eggs during this time. Although the creatures are not directly harmful, they can be very aggressive and territorial at this time of the year, because they’re at their strongest.
  • The number of fleas also multiplies. Since pets spend more time outdoors during summer, they are more likely to bring the pests back indoors with them.
  • Bees are also more active during summer as they go out to gather nectar. Many times, homeowners find a new beehive in their garden and require pest control to take care of it. Because of their sting, bees are more dangerous than some of the other pests and you should call our professional service to get rid of them.
  • Moths and flies usually start to multiply significantly during summer.
  • Ants begin to swarm to find new mates and start new colonies during summer.
  • Cockroaches become very noticeable in the summer, especially in the kitchen and toilets. This is due to the hotter temperatures and stronger smells.
  • Bedbugs are also very active in the summer.

Autumn is the month when things start to get cooler. The number of pests starts to dwindle as they begin to slow down their breeding activities.

  • Wasps start becoming dozy and docile. You may find them buzzing around occasionally as if they are drunk. This is usually the end-time for their life.
  • Spiders in particular are more active at this time of the year.
  • Squirrels will gather their food and start to look for shelter.
  • The second breeding phase for flies begins. These pests remain active during the season.
  • Rodents also become more active. Due to the approaching cold, rodents usually find shelter inside homes in the loft or inside walls.

The coldest months are when pests seek out warmth and shelter. You will find a number of insects especially rodents and lizards make their way inside your home.

  • Spiders come into our homes to escape the web-destroying frosts.
  • Rodents move indoors to escape the cold, increasing infestations.
  • In many cases, homeowners find squirrels nesting in lofts when they go to get their Christmas decorations.
