If you are looking for a prairie town full of surprises, look no further than Streator, Illinois. This town has a community that is friendly and welcoming. Community celebrations such as holiday events, car cruises, and concerts are just some of the local events that help keep this tight-knit town together and connected. Area pests that also thrive in tight-knit communities are rodents. Without pest control in Streator, these destructive critters may wriggle into local homes for a long, extended stay.

Types Of Rodents That Commonly Invade Streator Homes

Out of all the mammals in the world, the rodent family order is the largest; that means they're everywhere! Rodents invade around 21 million homes annually, which means Streator residents are bound to have an encounter with them at some point.

Some common rodents that often find their way into local homes include the following:

  • Norway rats
  • Meadow voles
  • House mice
  • Deer mice

Outside habitats that rodents once lived in have dwindled due to increased human populations and buildings. Displaced rodents that search for new homes look for three things – shelter, food, and moisture. Unfortunately for homeowners, rodents have discovered that human homes provide for all their essential needs. Why would they want to leave? Rodent populations inside homes can quickly get out of hand, so it is vital to have a pest expert like Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators nearby when they show up.

The Damage And Dangers Rodents Can Create Around Your Home

Rodents in Streator come with a two-fold problem: damages and dangers. Rodents are gnawing mammals which means they constantly have to wear down their growing incisor teeth; that's trouble for your home. Rodents gnaw on wood, drywall, and electrical wiring. They also damage stored items and can shred insulation when establishing nests. Even more concerning is rodents' health hazards to homes; they are the "great contaminators." The food they eat and the surfaces they walk on all get contaminated, and saliva, urine, and rodent feces contribute to air contamination. People who suffer from allergies and asthma can have their conditions aggravated. Rodents carry bacteria and diseases like hantavirus, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, and rat-bite fever. They also bring other pests like mites, ticks, lice, and fleas into homes. With so many problems associated with rodent infestations, it is essential to get them out of homes quickly. With help from Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators, our technicians can locate rodent hangouts and thoroughly remove them from your home with our effective rodent control services in Streator.

The Hassles With Do-It-Yourself Rodent Control

Do-it-yourself solutions for rodent control are often more trouble than they are worth. They like to make big promises but deliver little to no results

Reasons why do-it-yourself rodent control is a considerable hassle include the following:

  • Homeowners need to find out how and where rodents enter the home to eliminate rodents. This process can be frustrating and extremely time-consuming.
  • Rodent traps need correct placement and baiting. This process can waste money, time, and energy without proper knowledge of rodent behavior. Even a small victory is deceptive since rodents are quick breeders; there's always more to take their place!
  • Rodent bait, sprays, bombs, and poisons rarely have the desired effect of killing off a rodent infestation resulting in wasted time and money; children and pets can get poisoned, causing even more headaches.

Ultimately, the best way to get rid of rodents from your Streator home is by calling in the Streator pest control professionals at Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators. Our technicians are trained in rodent behavior and techniques to ensure effective rodent control and removal at a reasonable cost.
