Many residents think that mice are fairly harmless when compared to rats. However, mice are much more common and can cause a lot more damage to your home. They breed swiftly and a small infestation can turn into a severe outbreak in a very short period of time. That’s why taking care of your mouse problems should be with the highest priority:
- Mice can contaminate food and water through the droppings they leave behind
- Mice can spread bacteria, which can lead to food poisoning and other illnesses
- Mice are unsanitary, breed quickly and do damage to your furniture and home
With all these potential health issues and having to repair or replace ruined furniture, walls and clothing, it’s highly recommended to solve your mouse problem by calling a professional mice exterminator. We cover all postcodes in and around Chester.
No More Rats Here, No More Rats There, No More Rats Everywhere
If you see rats in your home, you must treat them as a serious pest problem. Rats can cause damage to electrical wiring, can chew through walls, insulation and floor joists. The roof rats are the ones you’re most likely to find inside or around your property. They make their nests in the attic of your home, or in trees and bushes around your property.
Rats often live in higher areas, they are adept climbers and very good at travelling through the neighborhood without being seen. But that’s because they are nocturnal and usually hide from humans. Here are some of the signs that can indicate their presence:
- Rat droppings and debris from chewing
- Ripped food packaging
- Scratching noises
- Nests and burrows
