What Problems Can Mice & Rats Cause?

For being so small, mice and rats can actually cause quite a bit of damage! A rodent's front teeth continuously grow, meaning they have to gnaw to keep them short. They may chew on your furniture, clothes, papers, or other belongings. They are also known to chew on wires, which creates a major fire hazard in homes. On top of this, they are extremely unsanitary, and can make you and your family very sick.

The problem with DIY methods for getting rid of mice and rats is that, done wrong, it can do more harm than good! It takes a trained eye to locate the specific points where rodents are entering your home or business, in an effort to seal them out. It also takes experience and training on the biology and habits of rodents to know which type of bait, trap, or lure to use, and where to place it.
