Exterior Rodent Control in Boston
Providing Top-Quality Treatments in Eastern Massachusetts for 40+ Years
Mouse and rodents in Eastern Massachusetts are a problem when they find their way into your home or business. This is where our Boston exterior rodent control team can come in and help exterminate any present rodent. Rodents like to be near humans so that they have a ready supply of food. This has earned them the term "commensal," which means "to share one's table." Unfortunately, these creatures are the exact opposite of the types of visitors with whom we would like to share our table.
Are Rodents Hard to Get Rid Of?
Rodents themselves carry a host of maladies, and their fur often conceal parasites like fleas and ticks, which come with their own set of deadly diseases. Removing rodents can sometimes be as easy as setting a mousetrap, but a larger infestation can be a more significant issue. Rats are especially smart and can learn to avoid traps. This is why you should never hesitate to seek quality Boston exterior rodent control from General Environmental Services, Inc.
Characteristics of Rodents
The class of creatures called "rodents" actually encompasses much more than just mice and rats. It refers to any animal whose incisor teeth continue to grow, so they must continually gnaw to keep them serviceable. There are more than 2,200 different rodents. Together they make up more than 40% of all mammals.
Along with mice and rats, some additional kinds of rodents which you might not have considered include:
- Prairie dogs
Damages Caused by Rodents in Boston
Boston mice and rats, as well as some of the other rodents mentioned above that live throughout Eastern Massachusetts, can do a lot of physical damage to your home or business.
Some examples of havoc that rodents wreak upon people’s businesses and residences include:
- Easily chewing through many types of siding and other building materials
- Gnawing through the protective covering on electrical lines, thereby increasing the possibility of fire
- Damaging other materials within your household, creating holes and gnawing on numerous objects, especially food or food containers
Hazards to Human Health
Rodents can carry up to thirty-five diseases that humans are susceptible to, which is another reason to eliminate them as soon as possible. Cleaning up after a rodent infestation also requires a great deal of caution. This is necessary because of the possibility of fleas, ticks, or mosquitoes that live in rodents’ fur or around their homes.
These parasites may transmit their diseases to you, your children, and even your pets. There is also risk involved if you inadvertently stir up the dust of rodents’ nests, it can be hazardous to breathe in the bacteria contained within.
