Springdale & Fayetteville Rodent Control
Fayetteville Mouse Control & Rodent Exterminators
Northern Arkansas and Southern Missouri are home to a number of different rodent species, including the two vermin that are most troublesome: Norway rats (which gnaw and burrow; also known as sewer rats) and mice (which commonly nest within structures). Of course, if you encounter one of the other rodent species, such as gophers, moles, voles, squirrels, raccoons, opossums, skunks, or groundhogs, we can handle them as well.
When you take advantage of one of Hopper Termite & Pest’s rodent programs, you have the peace of mind in knowing that if the rodents return, so do we and at no charge!
The Danger of Rodents
Rodents can spread a number of diseases, many of which may become life threatening, if not identified and treated, such as: Salmonellosis, Hepatitis, Dysentery, Hantavirus, Lyme disease, Tularemia, and the Plague. That is why the eradication of existing rodent populations, as well as the prevention of access to structures by rodents, is of paramount importance.
Exposure to contaminated rodent droppings and urine can put humans at risk for contracting these diseases. Additionally, rodents can transport disease carrying fleas into your home and act as the agent of contamination when the fleas drop off the rodent and bite an unsuspecting person.
Signs You Need Rodent Control
1. Chewed through holes - Especially as the winter goes on, rats and mice will become more and more desperate for food. They'll chew through whatever they can to get to your pantry so look out for new holes.
2. Droppings - As these scavengers eat a lot, they'll often leave their droppings on the way to their food source so if you notice it call in our Fayetteville rodent control team. Rats also have bad bladders and their urine leaves a noticeable stench.
3. Sounds at night or sightings during the day - As their search for food intensifies, they'll scratch and claw at anything throughout the night. If you see them during the day it means they're nesting nearby as they're nocturnal.
4. Visible signs of a nest - These animals like to nest in enclosed spaces, so look out for any signs of their nesting and call in our rodent control team should you see them.
5. Footprints - Mice have feet about a quarter inch long and rats have feet that can stretch for an entire inch, sometimes more. Rats will also leave tail prints as they have bigger ones.
There are eleven things your pest control professional will look for when conducting a comprehensive rodent inspection: Droppings, tracks, gnaw marks, burrowing, runways, grease/rub marks, urine stains, live or dead rodents, rodent sounds, rodent odors, and nesting areas. A thorough inspection provides critical information about the size of the population and the routes taken by the rodents.
