When the problem is serious
Pests such as rats and mice are suspected carriers of sicknesses and diseases that can cause infections like Salmonellosis, Typhoid Fever, Cholera, Gastroenteritis, Leprosy, Dysentery, Campylobacteriosis, Listeriosis, Giardia. Yes, a mouse or rat is hardly an issue when there is only one of them, you spot them early and relocate them away from your home...but in the vast majority of cases do not roll out this way. When we get calls for urgent mouse control and rat or mice exterminator services, a lot of the time it’s because the property owner only suddenly discovered they had an infestation that same day. Rodents actually tend to live in close proximity to humans, near food sources, but will hide in small areas and avoid light so that you do not see them. Because rodents are small and excellent at keeping out of plain sight, by the time you encounter the signs or find your household pest, it’s very likely that they have already started nesting and breeding! So never wait or delay to call rodent exterminators as problems will escalate fast.
