Got Rodents? All Pest Control in Portland Can Help.
Rodents and critters can cause a number of problems for both your home and your health. Each type of rodent has its own unique characteristics and concerns. Some of the most common rodents in the Portland area include mice, rats, and moles. All Pest Control takes a full-service approach to eradicating rodents and critters in your home.
Signs You Have a Rodent Infestation
If you think you may have a rodent infestation, but aren’t sure which type of rodent you are dealing with, here are some common signs:
- Mice: Mice will leave droppings around your home that are about ¼” or less. You may also notice bite marks along the inside or outside of your home.
- Rats: Rat droppings are between ½” and ¾”. And like mice, they may also leave bite marks along the inside and outside of your home.
- Moles: Moles will leave criss-cross type ridges throughout your yard. You may see random mounds of dirt outside too.
How to Get Rid of Rodents in Your Home
To successfully rid your home of rodents and critters, you’ll need to first identify which type of rodent you are dealing with. The location of the rodents will also affect the method used to stop the infestation.
It’s important to work with a professional who knows where to look and which extermination methods will be best for your home. All Pest Control uses a variety of environmentally sensitive methods, including trapping and baiting, to address your rodent concerns.
Is DIY Extermination Worth it?
You may be wondering if you can tackle extermination on your own. While DIY methods can help the situation temporarily, the only way to guarantee that the rodents are exterminated for good is to work with a professional. There are also serious risks when using poison, so it’s best to leave it to the experts.
Damage and Disease Caused by a Rodent Infestation
Rodents and critters are more than just a nuisance. These animals can cause serious physical damage to your home. For example, rodents love to gnaw on a variety of materials in and around your home, including:
- Wood or drywall to gain entry into the home
- Insulation to create bedding
- Cardboard boxes containing food or other items, resulting in contamination
- Electrical wiring, which could be a fire hazard
Rodents can also carry dangerous pathogens, which can lead to disease and other health issues.
