Rats and mice are a nuisance in any home even if not all of them carry diseases. Rodents chew on about anything to keep their teeth from getting too long. So expect to find chewed electrical cords and food supplies when mice and rats are around. They will chew through anything when they are a hunt for food.
Mice don’t have to always chew a very large hole since they can squeeze through tiny holes. They can squeeze through a hole the size of a nickel while rats can squeeze through a hole the size of a half dollar. This makes them highly adaptable into entering into any home or business establishment. That is why it is very important that all rodent control measures, including finding the gaps and holes allowing rodent entry, must be found.
This is a service that our Long Beach rodent control specialists can perform for you.
Below is a list of common places to find holes in your home that can be used by a mouse or rat:
