Protect Your Home and Health with Effective Rodent Control
Rodents such as gophers, house and deer mice, and pack and roof rats are common in Phoenix. And the most frustrating thing about them is that they’re great at hiding, unlike ants and spiders who are generally easy to spot and capture.
Rodents surreptitiously contaminate your home by leaving bacteria in cupboards, drawers, and even food storage containers. They also love to crawl through garbage and compost containers and continue to spread unhygienic particles throughout indoor areas. Stopping them from accessing your home or office building is the first step to preventing larger problems.
Anteater Exterminating’s pest control service includes rodent removal in Phoenix that locates key access points, investigates what’s attracting them, and inspects the building for signs of existing damage.

Rodent Removal is only Possible With Expert Knowledge
It’s important to have rats and mice removed if you see them in or around your home. They will not simply go away on their own. Especially if they’ve established a nest and have a reliable source of food nearby.
Beyond being unnerving and creepy, rodents are actually a health hazard. Their feces contain an airborne contaminant that attaches itself to dust particles and can cause allergic reactions and sickness if inhaled. Rodents multiply at such a rapid rate that they can quickly overwhelm an entire building. This can increase the money you pay, not just in doctor visits, but for repair work.
And it’s not obvious where they leave their traces. These creatures are nocturnal, fast-moving, and extremely smart. If rodents aren’t controlled swiftly and effectively, the problem only gets worse.
A surplus of rodents can attract other pests as well. Those pests, such as ticks, fleas, mosquitos, or flies bite both rodents and people, spreading disease indirectly. This is how the West Nile Virus, Zika, and Lyme Disease are spread.
According to the CDC, here are some of the diseases directly transmitted by rats, mice, and squirrels:
- Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
- Rat-Bite Fever

Beyond being a threat to human health, rodents also cause structural damage to walls, wiring, pipes, crawl spaces, and flooring.
An easy way to determine whether a home or building has a rodent infestation is to look for droppings around the kitchen and listen for chewing or scratching sounds at night.
If you spot a mouse, rat, or any of their evidence, call an exterminator at Anteater as soon as possible. Rodents are fast breeders and preventing problems before they worsen is always the best approach.
