Rodents are elusive until one darts across your floors right under your feet, or you spot one slinking along the edges of a room. If rodents have decided to make your home theirs, you’ll want to contact Onyx Lawn & Pest Control as soon as possible for rodent control. Rodents multiply fast, and one adorable-looking mouse can turn into a dangerous home takeover in the blink of an eye. If you see one scurrying around, it’s safe to assume there are plenty more hiding away. With how adept and covert these pests are, you’ll need our professional rodent control services to resolve the problem and prevent future infestations.
Rodents To Watch Out For
It’s important to be aware of the rodent sneaking around and destroying your property, as the treatment process and control methods vary based on the rodent. Many different types of rodents can invade your property. They can cause damage everywhere, from your attic to your garden. The experts at Onyx Lawn & Pest Control will be able to identify the type of rodent infestation you’re suffering and determine the best rodent removal process and prevention plan to resolve the rodent control problem.
Here on the Wasatch Front, four significant rodents cause more problems than any other: mice, rats, voles, and gophers.
- Mice – Mice are very small rodents with tiny eyes and short noses, and they usually have hair on their tails. They can chew through electrical wires, spread diseases, damage your things, and contaminate your food.
- Rats – Rats are larger than mice and have large teeth and long, often hairless tails. They carry dangerous pathogens, gnaw on anything to keep their teeth trimmed and contaminate your food.
- Voles – Voles are small and stout with round heads, smaller ears than mice, and a hairy tail. They cause significant damage to your yard via the tunnels and burrows they dig and how they eat your plants.
- Gophers – Gophers can weigh up to 20 ounces and have large claws and big front teeth. They can destroy the roots of your plants and leave piles of dirt all over your yard.
The experts at Onyx Lawn & Pest Control have also dealt with rodent control problems by moles, squirrels, and more. If any rodent is taking over your property, trying to control the problem yourself can lead to further infestation if you use the wrong methods. Our technicians provide effective solutions to return your property to safety and keep it that way.
The Dangers Rodents Cause
Many people don’t realize just how dangerous rodents can be. Rodents’ teeth never stop growing, so they’re constantly gnawing on anything to keep their teeth at a reasonable length. This can result in extensive damage to your home or business, as they’ll chew through wood, electrical wiring, plumbing, etc. Like voles and gophers, outside rodents can completely tear up your yard, leaving it covered in holes.
Your property isn’t the only thing rodents can hurt. Rodents are also carriers of many different diseases. They pick up a lot of bacteria and grime as they go about their business, bringing pathogens into your home. A rodent infestation isn’t bad for your property; it also poses a health risk for you and everyone who comes into it.
