Rodents Overrunning My Arizona Home

If you’ve ever spotted a mouse in your Arizona house, you know your first instinct is to run and hide. Just kidding – it’s probably to go buy some traps, set them out and wait. While this is a noble DIY approach, it rarely works, especially on large infestations. Even if you do catch a rodent or two, this isn’t always the end to the problem. There’s probably a much bigger problem behind those walls.

One mouse is usually a sign of a brewing infestation, and you know what that means: time to call a trusted Chandler exterminator.

Signs of a Rodent Infestation

If you see even one mouse, this is a good reason to call for pest control assistance. But there are other signs that may point to a bigger infestation, such as:

  • Droppings: Dried urine and droppings are the most obvious signs of a mouse infestation. Their droppings are usually about 1/8” to a ¼” long, with coloring that can be dark brown or black. Droppings and urine are usually found in warm environments such as in wall voids and behind stoves.
  • Wood shavings: Mice love to chew on wood, so look for gnaw marks on your furniture, cabinets, drawers and corners. Be on the lookout for wood shavings in the kitchen or around baseboards throughout the home.
  • Odors: An ammonia-like smell is common in the case of large infestations because of the high concentration and amount of urine they all leave behind. The stronger the smell, the higher the mouse activity.

Forget DIY Methods: Call a Professional to Get it Done Right

We’ve all set out mousetraps in the hopes of eradicating the rodent problem on our own without having to pay for an expert’s help. But while this may work for a mouse or two, you will need more than a few traps to successfully handle a large infestation.

A professional pest control service in Phoenix, Arizona knows exactly how to eradicate a large concentration of mice in the most effective manner possible. Trying to DIY this job could cost you a lot more in the long run. Let the pros get rid of the problem once and for all so you don’t have to worry about mice scurrying across your kitchen even after you thought you got them all.

Pest control technicians have access to much better and more powerful extermination methods than you do as an inexperienced homeowner. First off, they’ll do an inspection of the area so they can determine the extent of the problem. Then, they can come up with the best plan for removal, usually utilizing a combination of extermination techniques such as baiting and trapping.

Once extermination has been achieved, your Chandler pest control technician can concentrate on exclusion, which involves sealing and plugging holes and entry points around the home in an effort to avoid further infestation.
