Rats and mice can cause a considerable amount of damage to your home or business. Some of the damage rodents cause include:
Electrical fires, destroyed internet & phone cables.
Rodents compress, move, and shred insulation as the make their nests in it.
Rats and mice can burrow through and chew wood, sheetrock, insulation, plastic storage bins, boxes, plastic garbage cans, vapor barrier, and many other structural and stored items. They can chew entry holes anywhere from the ground to the roof and only need an opening a 1/4 of an inch to gain access.
Droppings, urine, and dead rodents:
In addition to ruining crawl space & attic insulation with their feces and urine, a rodent infestation can cause strong and unpleasant odors throughout your home. Rats and mice often nest and die in heating ducts causing the odor to fill a room or area of the house.
