Rodents

Rodents are animals who must continually gnaw at things to stay alive. There are over 2,200 types of rodents which includes much more than your traditional group of rats and mice. Over 40% of all mammals are rodents which include squirrels, chipmunks, prairie dogs, mice, rats, and many others.

Rodents in Ohio leave droppings, hair, and urine in food. They chew through construction materials, siding, window screens and doors to enter into your home or business. Rodents eat constantly and leave droppings everywhere. Often owners find out there is a problem when they find what appear to be small grains of millet when it is rodent droppings. Rodents steal birdseed, and threaten your pets. They gnaw on numerous objects creating holes in them such as bags of food or food containers.

Rodents’ burrowing and gnawing activity can physically damage your home or business. They can be found in contaminated food, warehouses, commercial storage facilities, and damaged stock. It can cost a significant amount of money to repair the damage they cause.

There are a number of steps that should be taken to get rid of mice in Ohio. If you suspect you have a problem, sprinkle flour or talc on the area where rodents are expecting to be traveling through. This way you can see the mice or rat tracks and know that they are present and need to be removed. Call a technician from Greenix Pest Control in Ohio to help exterminate the mice – do not attempt to remove them yourself. It can take up to three weeks for rodents to die from poison so it is unwise to try and eradicate them yourself. They can die in the walls or in other areas where there bodies will decay, smell, and attract other pests to enter into your home or business. Using a pest professional is necessary to exterminate mice and prevent them from coming back in the future. For rodents that burrow, we use a system to treat all tunneling systems to eliminate any burrowing pest quickly and humanely.
