Houston Pest Control Pros On Rodents In Texas

Previous Post | Next Post


Houston area homeowners and business owners are concerned. About what you ask? Rodents. Specifically mice and rats in Houston. Pest control professionals are receiving a lot of calls from worried property owners asking about rodent infestations, signs of rodents, if they are dangerous and what they should do.

Common rodents in Texas include the house mouse, the deer mouse and the roof rat. These critters may become a problem when the temperatures dip during the winter months but they also take advantage of openings on the exterior of houses and buildings. Food, water and shelter are what these pests are after and if your home offers three squares a day (in a manner of speaking), plenty of hydration and a warm, safe play to relax, you could likely find yourself with a rodent problem.

  • Though rodents are elusive creatures, active mainly at night, they can make it pretty obvious they are in residence. Signs of rodents include:

  • Hearing scratching or running noises in the walls and ceilings

  • Discovering nests, urine and droppings behind appliances, up in the attic in less disturbed areas Finding chew marks on boxes that you have in storage, on furniture and in other areas of your home.

Now rodents may seem harmless but really they are bad news. Salmonella, lymphocytic disease and Hantavirus are just a few of the serious health risks associated with these pests. They can also introduce other parasites into your home like ticks and fleas and cause serious damage to the structure of your home by chewing through wire, pipes, drywall, and insulation which can lead to water damage and fires.

So what do you do if you find yourself with a rodent infestation in your home? The answer is contact a Houston pest control firm; trying to get rid of rodents on your own can often be ineffective, costly and time consuming. Experts in rodent control will correctly identify the pest problem, find potential entry points and implement a control strategy that will effectively resolve the infestation.
