Are you wondering if professional rodent control is the right choice for you? If so, we'd like to arm you with the information you need to make the best decision. Here are the key reasons why professional rodent control is always the best way to go, and how All-Safe Pest & Termite can help you stop the cycle of infestation.

In Light Of The Threat, Effective Control Is Best

In our area, mice, rats, and sometimes squirrels, get into Dallas properties and create issues. Lots of issues. More issues than you may realize.

  • A single mouse can have 100 seed ticks on its body. If a mouse or rat finds a way into your home, they can drop seed ticks and flea eggs as they explore. These parasites, having already been exposed to mice or rats, have a higher potential to carry disease-causing pathogens.

  • Rodents chew to get into your home. This damage isn't just unsightly. A rodent hole can allow rainwater to get in, which will lead to wood rot and mold problems. Mold is especially concerning as it has the potential to cause severe respiratory dysfunction.

  • Rodents don't stop chewing when they get inside. They're known to chew on stored items, insulation, interior building materials, gas lines, and wires. Those last two are the greatest concern. If a rodent chews on a gas line or some wires, it can spark a fire. Experts believe that 20 to 25 percent of fires that originate from a source that cannot be determined is likely to be rodent-related.

  • Rodents contaminate food, dishes, and food-prep surfaces, and soil objects in attics and storage areas. This contamination can cause food poisoning, dysentery, other stomach illnesses, and worse. Exposure to rodent waste can lead to Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome and other harmful illnesses or conditions.

Do-It-Yourself Rodent Control Can Let You Down

If you don't properly deal with rodents, you can actually make these issues exponentially worse. Rodents reproduce quickly and they can establish a large population inside man-made structures. Here are a few ways DIY often falls short of effectively addressing rodent problems.

  • Some Dallas residents turn to baits or other products that kill rodents. These can leave dead rodents on or inside your property. They can also be harmful to dogs, cats, or children that are accidentally exposed to them.

  • Traps are known to be effective at capturing rodents, but they can fail in many ways. You may use cheese, instead of a food source rodents prefer. You may touch the traps when you deploy them and rodents will smell you on the traps. You may place a trap down in a location where rodents have frequented and they may be suspicious of this new object. 

  • Rodents are very smart. When traps are deployed incorrectly, or when a rodent escapes the death blow of a spring trap, it can become trap shy. This makes it more difficult to remove.

  • Rodents have the unsavory behavior of chewing a limb off to escape from a trap. When this happens, they sometimes escape into walls and die. This is not an ideal outcome. 

  • When rodents are successfully trapped, but exterior entry points are sealed and protected, rodents can continue to come in and replace any rodents that have been captured.

  • The worst scenario is that DIY appears to have worked when it actually hasn't. This allows rodents to continue to secretly present a health and property risk.

Professionals Are Professionals

When you hire a licensed pest control professional, your rodent infestation will be addressed by a trained, tested, and experienced individual. You can expect a detailed inspection, appropriate evaluation of the findings, a proper plan of attack, correct deployment of products, and necessary follow-up visits(s) to make certain no rodents remain. You can also expect your health and property to be protected.
