If you live in the Kendale Lakes area, chances are pretty high that you’ll have some type of rodent problem at some point. Rodents are notorious for getting into homes and creating large families. You need to get to the rats and mice before this happens.

Along with being disgusting, rats and mice can also pose a health hazard to your family. According to the CDC, Kendale Lakes rodents can carry the following diseases:
- South American Arenaviruses
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis
- Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
Even if a rodent doesn’t carry a disease, they’re still not something you want crawling around in your home. Rodents will try to raid your food, and may contaminate it in the process. They will chew through practically anything when trying to get to food. Rats aren’t afraid of chewing through your walls to get to food. Call (954) 790-6417 for an inspection.
Now, they don’t have to chew a very large hole because they can squeeze through tiny holes. In fact, mice can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This is usually how mice and rats originally get into a home or business. They have squeezed through some tiny hole that no one noticed. That is why it is very important that any rodent control measures include finding the gaps and holes that allowed entry in the first place. This is a service that our Kendale Lakes rodent control specialists can perform for you.
Below is a list of the common areas to find these holes and gaps inside your home. Remember that mice are not restricted to low areas as they are expert climbers. The common areas are:
- Around doors
- Around the pipes under sinks and washing machines
- Near floor vents
- Between the wall and floor juncture
- In your attic
- Inside closets near the floor corners
Steel wool is great for filling holes and gaps found in your home. For large holes, we find that metal sheeting, lath metal or hardware cloth is the most effective. Flashing near the base of your home is another alternative that’s available. We know this sounds like a lot to do, but don’t worry. We’d be happy to send out our Kendale Lakes rodent control experts to not only rid your home of existing rodents, but to secure it from future invasions as well.
