All The Problems Rodents Can Create In Your House

Arizona rodents can create a multitude of problems in your home. It's essential to be aware of these problems so that you take appropriate action at the first sign of rodents in your home.

Rodents can:

  • Contaminate food with bacteria
  • Cause illnesses through their saliva, feces, and uring
  • Damage furniture, personal belongings, electrical wires, insulation, wallpaper, etc.
  • Cause an unsanitary mess with their feces and urine
  • Bring disease-ridden flea and tick parasites to you and your pets
  • Exacerbate allergies

Your chances of a health problem developing or a property damage problem worsening will continue to grow the longer an infestation remains untreated in your home.

Effectively Deterring Roof Rats In And Around Your Home

All rodents are tricky to deter, but roof rats seem to be especially tricky to prevent and remove. Roof rats are long and thin rodents with big eyes and ears, a pointed nose, and a scaly tail. Their fur is usually brown with intermixed spots of black. Adults are between six and eight inches, with tails noticeably longer than their bodies. 

If you want to deter roof rats in and around your home, try these tips:

  • Seal holes and cracks with silicone caulk.
  • Screen all windows and vents.
  • Keep all trees and shrubs trimmed away from your roof or home.
  • Keep garbage tightly covered.
  • Properly seal away all pet food.
  • Remove all sources of water, such as bird baths, pet food bowls, etc.

These tips can help prevent roof rats and other rodents from approaching your property, but can't deter or remove rodents as effectively as professional pest control services.
