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. If you see one, unfortunately there is likely a lot more where that came from.
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 roof rat control Phoenix that locates key access points, investigates what’s attracting them, and inspects the building for signs of existing damage.

Importance of Rodent Control
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 contains 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.
Because these creatures are nocturnal, fast-moving, and extremely smart it is not always easy to find their traces. If rodents aren’t controlled quickly 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 diseases. 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
- And More
Permanent Rodent Control
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 building has a rodent infestation is to look for droppings around the kitchen and listen for chewing or scratching sounds at night.
