Rodents are a serious pest for homeowners throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Whether homeowners realize it or not, almost every home we visit has mice living in the basement, walls, attic, or garage. Mice and rats can gain access to a home through anywhere that has a ¼ inch of space. Mice will travel around the entire perimeter of a home in search of gaps where they can chew into your home. Rodents will oftentimes go unnoticed until damage has already been done.
Rodents like rats, mice, and voles are both a nuisance and a hazard. They can cause damage to your home or business with their gnawing and nest-building. They can transmit many diseases like salmonella (food poisoning), ringworm (fungal diseases), and lymphocytic choriomeningitis (a respiratory disease). Therefore, effective external rodent control is essential.
