Rodents In Tulsa
If you have rodents in your home or business, there are two things you need to know: why they're bad, and how to get rid of them. Fortunately, you've stumbled on to the right place to get answers to both of these questions.
Why are rodents bad?
The CDC connects rats and mice to the spread of over a dozen diseases worldwide. They destroy property, contaminate food and animal feed, and are considered a fire hazard. Rodents are also wild animals which means they can carry parasites like lice, ticks, fleas, mites, and worms. If you have rodents in your home or business, they will spread illness and parasites as they forage, nest, and chew.
How do I get rid of rodents?
Here is a list of preventative measures to exclude rodents from your property.
Store seed, grain, pet food, pantry items, and other food sources in hard plastic containers.
Fix leaking pipes inside and outside of your home.
Keep your yard free from weeds, rocks, debris, lumber, construction materials, and other materials rodents nest in.
Keep trash covered to keep smells in, and rodents out.
Put wire mesh at the bottom of downspouts to prevent rodents from gaining access to your roofline.
Examine your exterior walls. Use a caulking gun to fill in rotted holes or areas that have been chewed on.
