Four Risks of Rats and Mice

Here are four key risks that rats and mice may pose to a home: 

  • The spreading of disease: These rodents can carry various pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, and parasites, that can be transmitted to humans through their droppings, urine, or bites. Diseases such as salmonellosis, leptospirosis, hantavirus, and rat-bite fever are among the health concerns linked to rodent infestations. 
  • Food contamination: Rats and mice can chew through packaging and contaminate stored food items. This poses a risk of food infections, as rodents can leave behind feces, urine, and hair on surfaces and in food preparation areas. 
  • Structural and Furniture Damage: Rodents have strong teeth that continuously grow, leading them to gnaw on various materials, including furniture, walls, and insulation. This destructive behavior can result in costly damage to the home's structure. 
  • Electrical Hazards from Gnawing Rodents: Rats and mice may chew through cables and cords, rendering appliances non-functional or causing them to operate unsafely. This not only requires homeowners to spend money on replacement, but it can also lead to dangerous electrical fires. 

By addressing these risks promptly, homeowners can protect their health, preserve property, and maintain a safe living environment.

Four Tips for Rat and Mouse Prevention

Taking proactive measures can reduce the likelihood of rodents finding their way into your living space. 

Here are four effective ways to prevent rat and mouse infestations:

  • Seal Entry Points to Deter Rodents: Start by inspecting the exterior of your home for potential entry points that rats and mice could use to gain access. Seal any cracks, gaps, or openings in walls, foundations, doors, and windows. Pay close attention to areas where utility lines enter the house, as rodents can squeeze through small spaces. 
  • Maintain a Clean and Organized Yard: A cluttered yard can provide hiding places and nesting spots for rodents. Regularly clean up debris, such as piles of leaves, woodpiles, and overgrown vegetation, which can attract rats and mice. Trim tree branches and shrubs near your home to eliminate pathways rodents might use to access your property.
  • Secure Food Sources from Rodents: Rodents are opportunistic feeders and will be enticed by easily accessible food sources. Store food in airtight containers made of metal or glass to prevent them from accessing it. Avoid leaving pet food out overnight and promptly clean up spills or crumbs. 
  • Consider a Feline Deterrent: Cats are natural predators of rats and mice. Their presence alone can act as a deterrent for rodents. 

It’s a good idea to conduct regular inspections and maintenance to catch and address any signs of infestation early on. Contact our Southington rat and mouse control team immediately if you suspect a rodent issue.
