Problems from Rodents

Rats and mice are a common problem in Fairfield and New Haven counties for homes and businesses, especially those near water sources. They are just like other creatures, they go where they can find food and shelter and your home offers both. This is why you can usually find evidence of them in or near your food pantry or in the attic of your home. Along with the droppings you will see, they can carry external parasites such as fleas, flies, maggots, ticks, and mites. Viruses, such as Hepatitis E, are not uncommon. Even though you may never actually come in contact with them, they can spread diseases to your pet by drinking from their bowls. Your kitchen can be contaminated with urine or droppings on the counters where food is prepared.  Keep your family and your pets safe, call us for help.   

Rodents In The Attic, Walls

The general rule with rodents is, if you see one, there are probably more. These creatures breed rapidly. Gestation is about 23 days and they usually have 6-12 in a litter so they multiply at a very fast rate. This is not a problem you want to put off dealing with. Waiting can lead to full on infestation.  That can cause severe damages and increased health risks to you and your family. Your attic can be a great home for rats and mice but if they are living in your attic they are probably causing damages that you need experts to locate and repair. They will chew on electrical wiring that can turn into fire hazards. Plumbing is also vulnerable to their sharp little teeth.  These are damages that will get worse the longer they are allowed to stay.
