Shimmying up roofs, tapping into walls, and ripping into your favorite foods, these uninvited household guests are a thing to be feared!
Rats and mice are some of the most common types of rodents found in Plano homes:
Rats are four-legged creatures that are often quite large, sometimes measuring over 8 inches at maturity. Blunt noises and long, bare tails are some of the most identifiable elements of their appearance.
Mice are much smaller than their ratty cousins and have smaller, pointer noses to boot. Their tails often have a thin layer of hair, which may be the same color as their grey, white, black, or tawny fur.
While both species have physical differences, the damages they cause are often similar. Large teeth and claws make it easy for rodents to rip into the home and create bedding for their large nests. Rodents tend to frequent the less savory areas of the home, collecting grime and different strains of pathogens. These pathogens are then spread through water droplets in their excrement, contaminated foodstuffs, or carrion. Even the things rodents leave behind can make you sick!
Despite all the dangerous facts, there is some silver lining. Homeowners usually have either a mouse or a rat infestation, and rarely both. This makes treatment from a professional pest control standpoint slightly easier after identification.
Why Plano Rodents Are So Hard To Get Rid Of
Rodents are difficult to kick out of Plano homes for several reasons, all of which make handling these vermin difficult for even seasoned homeowners. These concerns include:
Prolific natures that produce hundreds of kits per year
Ability to slip through almost any hole (¼ an inch or larger)
Adaptable intelligence to traps and some baits

Rodents are sneaky, unassuming household vermin that not only make your home environment unpleasant but unsafe as well. They contaminate food with deadly strains of bacteria and turn pantries into their own personal feeding ground. What’s worse, any attempts to eliminate them without the help of professionals will turn your once safe Plano residence into an all-out rodent battlefield. Over the counter chemicals, baits, and other traps may certainly reduce the number of pests in your home, but they will never be able to remove the danger at its core.
