What’s That Scratching Sound?: Squirrel, Rat, and Mice Infestations

When rodents like squirrels, rats, and mice enter homes, businesses, municipal buildings and other properties, it is crucial that immediate action is taken for their removal. Theseanimals can cause serious structural damage and carry diseases, viruses, and parasites that can be transmitted to humans, especially through droppings and feces, including:

  • Leptospirosis:may cause mild flu-like symptoms, but can lead to serious respiratory problems or even death.
  • Rat-Bite Fever:a serious or even fatal disease
  • Bubonic Plague:causes a sudden onset of fever, headache, chills, weakness and swollen, tender and painful lymph nodes.
  • Salmonellosis:symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps that last 4 to 7 days.
  • Hantavirus:a potentially life-threatening respiratory disease.

Signs of Infestation

If you hear scratching, rustling, gnawing, and running (especially at night) you probably have some sort of rodent infestation. Other signs include nests, insulation burrows, teeth/chew marks on items in infested areas, droppings, and urine smells/stains.

We will then work with you to develop a safe and cost-effective plan to trap and remove the wildlife from your property through humane strategies.
