Unwanted rodents can cause all sorts of problems in and outside your home. Not only will these animals cause physical damage to your home, costing you a significant amount of money, but they will cause plenty of emotional distress, as well.
Thankfully, there are professional rodent removal services that can help you rid your home of all kinds of unwanted animals and keep your property and family safe.
Here are some unwanted rodents and destructive animals that can cause all sorts of problems inside your home:
Rats — Rats breed incredibly fast. In fact, two rats in the perfect environment could turn into a population of 482 million rats in three years! You likely won’t have to deal with rats in the hundreds of thousands, but even a single rat can be destructive.
Opossums — Opossums are scavengers and will wreak havoc on your attic, basement, and other parts of your home. Additionally, these rodents carry diseases that will threaten your health and any pets inside your home.
Squirrels — Squirrel infestations are quite common and can often lead to plenty of physical damage. Squirrels target attic insulation, ductwork, and electric wiring — so it’s important to act quickly and consult with professionals to rid your home of these rodents.
Raccoons — Raccoons can cause extensive and expensive property damage. Their sharp claws will tear through your home’s siding and ductwork and bacteria will likely spread throughout your home, exposing your family to various illnesses.
Snakes — Snakes are cold-blooded animals and will search for warm places to rest during the colder months. You can keep snakes out of your home by sealing cracks and holes, but you should still work with professionals to avoid snake infestations and snakebites.
Skunks — Skunks can be terrifying to see on the road as you’re driving by. But imagine how horrible you’ll feel if you notice a skunk or two inside your home. What a nightmare! In order to avoid getting sprayed by a skunk, it’s best to work with rodent removal professionals and let them take care of the problem.
