By far the most common wildlife we see in Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex homes, rodents don’t necessarily cause the extensive home damage as larger pests that enter our houses, but from a sanitation perspective, rats and mice can be a huge hazard to your family’s health and wellbeing. On this page, we’re going to review the obvious warning signs that you’re dealing with a rodent infestation, and how the Critter Stop team goes the extra mile to not just get rid of the rodents but also to sanitize and restore your home. If you have questions or you’re ready to get started working with Critter Stop to remove rodents or other wildlife from your home in Dallas, McKinney, Fort Worth, or other Metroplex locations, give us a call today.
If you are dealing with a rodent infestation, you will see a number of common warning signs, including:
Rats and mice will enter your home by making the traditional “Tom & Jerry” mouse house holes. In most cases, you’ll see these in the roof returns, also called the eaves. It’s important to remember that mouse holes are not going to be big. If you can squeeze a finger into the hole, the odds are good a mouse or rat can fit in as well. Because of their small size and hidden location, you will not likely notice the rodent entryways unless there are also warnings inside the home.
At Critter Stop, we offer DFW Metroplex homeowners a four step rodent removal process that will seal access points, completely rid your home of an infestation, sanitize, and create barriers to keep rodents and wildlife away from your home. If you want to learn more about our sealing, trapping, sanitizing, and outdoor control process, checkout our rodent and wildlife removal page.
