What You Need To Know About Mice & Rats
In the span of just one year, a female rat can produce 72-84 babies. Seeing just one mouse or rat can mean that before long, you could have dozens of rodents living in or around your property.
Instead of letting these pests remain unwelcome guests in your home or business, populating unchecked, count on our skilled rodent control experts at Quality Pest Control, Inc. We have 26 years of industry experience and know what it takes to tackle even the most challenging rodent infestations. Our locally owned company is fully licensed and exceeds industry standards to keep our neighbors in Omaha rodent-free all year long.
Mice & Rats
Dangers In Your Home
The dangers of rodents like mice or rats in your space can be two-fold: Health risks and property damage. Rodents can spread disease through bites and scratches, contact with their droppings and urine, and exposure to parasites that feed on infected mice and rats. Some of these diseases include Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, and Lyme disease, but there are many others. In addition to adverse health effects, mice and rats are notorious for causing property damage due to their incessant gnawing—as they can chew through electrical wiring, potentially leading to fires.
4 Signs You Have A Mouse Or rat Infestation
- You notice droppings: Dark or grey in color, droppings can be found around cupboards and drawers or under sinks.
- Gnaw marks: Check your food packaging. If you notice small gnaw marks it could be a sign of a mouse infestation, with larger marks indicating rats.
- Nests: Noticing shredded paper or fabric in small piles in tucked away areas of your home? This could be a rodent nest.
- Musky odors: Rodent urine has a strong and unpleasant smell. If you don’t notice it at first, keep an eye on your pets, they might be homing in on specific areas of your space because they can smell the pests.
