Pest Control for Rodents in Your Space
When rodents are in your home they can expose you to dangerous diseases and can pose a hazard to your health, as well as create problems when they nest in your walls or find the food stored in your pantry.
Whether we are talking about rats or mice, they shouldn’t be in YOUR house. They constantly need to chew due to their teeth continually growing. They can be carriers of disease, they can contaminate food, and can also damage the insulation in your crawl space or attic. They have been known to cause house fires by chewing on wiring. The best treatment is to seal up your house, trap the rodents outside, and reduce the pressure on your house by placing traps or bait stations on the exterior.
House Mice are small, typically 3 inches in length at most, not including their long, slim tails. They have big ears, small eyes, and can be a range of colors from light brown to almost black. House Mice that are on the bigger side may weigh just over an ounce. If you have spotted mice in your home, call Pest Pros today for a free estimate!

Their ears are small in comparison to their bodies, which can be 8 inches long, not including their tails. They can weigh up to 18 ounces, which is more than a pound.
