Prevent this type of damage, call us now!

Rodents, mainly mice and rats, are a fairly common problem in San Clemente. Once rodents are in your home they’re going to look to expand their family and build a large nest. You will want a rodent control professional to get rid of them before they have a chance to do this.

Mice and Rats in San Clemente, California

Along with being disgusting, rats and mice can also pose a health hazard to your family. San Clemente rodents can carry the following diseases:

  • Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
  • Lassa Fever
  • Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
  • Salmonellosis
  • Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
  • Tularemia

Clearly, not all rodents will carry diseases.  However, rodents can still be a nuisance around your home because they chew on everything.  It is not uncommon to find chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are involved.  Rats will chew through anything that stands between them and food.  Rats will even chew through walls if they think there is food on the other side.

Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place.  This is a service that our San Clemente rodent control specialists can perform for you.

Below is a list of common places to find holes in your home that can be used by a mouse or rat. The common areas are:

  • Lower corners of your attic
  • Around doors
  • Around your water pipes
  • Around the fireplace
  • Inside the attic
  • Under kitchen cabinets

We have found that steel wool is one of the most effective materials for closing these gaps.  Larger holes can be fixed with metal sheeting, cement, lath metal or screen, or hardware cloth.  Flashing near the base of your home is another alternative that’s available. This probably sounds overwhelming, but don’t fret.  Not only can our San Clemente rodent control professionals get rid of your existing rodent problem, but they can prevent future mice and rats from being able to enter your home.  Just give us a call to schedule your consultation.
