Rodents such as mice, rats, and squirrels can cause a great deal of damage to residential and commercial Lake County properties due to their insatiable hunger and incessant need to chew in order to dull their teeth. Rodent damage can range from frayed electrical wires and shredded attic insulation to widespread contamination, stains, odors, and fire hazards. Fortunately, such costly damage to homes and businesses can be mitigated with the reliable and efficient rodent removal services of Critter Control® of Lake County.

4 Signs of Lake County Rodents

The presence of rodents in your residence or place of business can be quite startling; however, most rodent infestations go undetected until they have grown into an unmanageable size. That is because rodents multiply at a rapid pace. Once inside your property, rodents will search for a place to nest that is close to accessible sources of food and water—usually inside cardboard boxes or in-between attic or wall insulation. After establishing  nest, they will begin to breed and reproduce. Signs that you have a growing rodent infestation inside your property include:

  1. Squeaking, scratching, and scurrying noises coming from walls and overhead ceilings at night
  2. Scratched floorboards and chewed drywall or wooden beams
  3. Foul, ammonia-like smells throughout your property
  4. Stains and droppings along walls and floors

The Dangers Associated With Rodents 

If you encounter a rodent in your Lake County home, do not try to remove it on your own. This can be incredibly dangerous because rodents are wild animals that will scratch and bite if they are afraid or threatened. They can also spread infectious diseases through attacks or their droppings that can pose a significant health risk to you and your family. Rodents like rats, mice, and squirrels are known to carry very contagious and potentially deadly diseases such as:

  • Leptospirosis
  • Rat-bite Fever
  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome

Ineffective Rodent Removal Practices

While there are many DIY rodent removal methods available on the market to frustrated home- and business owners, most of them are ineffective and only offer temporary rodent relief, at best. Furthermore, rodent traps and poisonous sprays can be hazardous and toxic to children and pets.

Instead of wasting time and money on store-bought treatments, it is recommended that you contact experienced and efficient rodent removal experts like the licensed and trained professionals at Critter Control® of Lake County.
