Rodents in Your Home: What to Do Now?

Let me paint you a picture. You’re lying in your bed, and it’s one of those restless nights where you can’t sleep. You glance over at the alarm clock and you note that it’s 2:00 a.m. You know you won’t be able to perform at work if you can’t at least catch a couple of hours of sleep. You look over at your partner who is sound asleep, and you close your eyes again, determined to fall asleep. That’s when it happens! You hear these mysterious sounds emanating from the attic above. It sounds like rodents scurrying across the planks. You try to tell yourself it just can’t be. You think you’re just imagining things; however, you hear the mysterious sound again and several more times before morning.

Groggily over coffee, you tell your partner about the rodent sounds. At first, they just laugh it off, but finally decide to appease you and climb into the attic with a flashlight to check on the situation. As your partner descends the steps, you know by the look on his or her face what the verdict is. Rodents have left their calling card!

What should you do now? If you put out rodent poison, your cats may get it on their paws and lick it. Your partner tells you that the rodent bait you put in the attic last year to prevent an infestation was actually defiantly gnawed by the rodents. It is a conundrum. What should you do?

After a great deal of consideration, you figure out that the best course of action is to call the Atlanta pest control experts at Team Pest USA. Their team is a group of professionals who specialize in ridding your home of pests and wildlife in the Atlanta area.

Squirrels are Rodents Too
Of course, not all rodent infestations involve rats. You may think squirrels are cute chasing each other around the trees in your backyard, but squirrels can get into your home, too, and cause a great deal of damage to it. They can gnaw on electrical wires, insulation and your housing trim. This can quickly amount to thousands of dollars in damage. If you hire a professional in Atlanta wildlife removal, however, you can very quickly fix the problem and minimize the costly damages to your home.

Mice Can Have Serious Health Consequences
Mice love to move into homes and set up shop. They breed in between the walls or in any cubby hole they can find. Unfortunately, they also love to eat your food, and this can spread disease to your family when you don’t notice the hole in the bottom of the cereal box. This is why it is so important to call the best commercial pest control Atlanta has to offer at the very first sighting of a mouse in your home. The experts at Team Pest USA know that where there is one, there are many.
