Ohio Rodent Control
Millions of people call the beautiful state of Ohio home, but it's an unfortunate fact that several nuisance rodents also reside in the area. Even the cleanest homes in the state may be invaded by mice and rats, and an infestation could be established before homeowners are even aware of these unwelcome visitors. Fortunately, here at Accel Pest and Termite Control, our professionally trained technicians know how to eliminate any rodent problem, and we're available to protect homes and businesses in the counties of Medina, Portage, Stark, Summit and Wayne.
Rodent Entry Points
When you look at your home, you most likely see it as a secure structure. However, rodents know exactly how to gain entry into your living space. Large rats often gnaw their way right through your roof and into your attic space. Other rodents can fit through incredibly small openings that may include the space around drainage pipes, the narrow spaces in vents and the small openings that surround roof joints.
Damages Caused by Rodents
Both the common house mouse and the large Norway rat are found in Ohio homes and businesses, and these rodents breed rapidly. If you see a single mouse or rat in your home, then you must assume that dozens or even hundreds more are hidden in the attic or inside of the walls. These rodents may cause structural damage to your home because of their constant chewing on any areas that are made of wood. They've also been known to destroy entire book collections, and they will tear into any boxes or bags of food that are stored in your cupboards.
Rodents are extremely destructive to your attic insulation, and they will completely tear it up for nesting material. Rodents also have the bad habit of chewing on the electrical wires in your home, and this often leads to a costly repair bill from an electrician or a dangerous house fire.
Health Risks Associated With Rodents
Mice and rats tend to leave their urine, saliva and droppings behind wherever they roam, and it's not uncommon for these rodents to spend a lot of time on your kitchen counters. It's incredibly easy for your family members to come in contact with these unsanitary body fluids, and that can put you all in danger of contracting diseases that include salmonella, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever and the potentially deadly hantavirus.
